MEET TIMBI BARRON - OWNER & CHIEF ALCHEMIST
Hi everyone! I was born and raised in the Mat-Su Valley, part of a large family with seven kids, who homesteaded there in the 1950's. I've had so many adventures throughout my journey in this amazing and beautiful state, including my dozen years in Port Protection, where I learned a lot about self sufficiency,and where some of you first knew me from the National Geographic television show of the same name. Along the way I've learned to make some pretty wonderful soaps that have been beneficial to my extremely dry skin. I started making soap in 2010 for my family and friends. I've been lucky enough to have quite a few human test subjects with a variety of skin types who now request to be "testers", their feedback has been invaluable and helps me be better at what I do. I don't use artificial coloring or fragrances, parabens or other synthetics, and use essential oils and natural additives that have a purpose, like blueberries, devil's club, fireweed, pink Himalayan salt, charcoal, turmeric, and cayenne-some of these are wonderful and tingly, exciting even! I still love to go adventuring into the great outdoors as often as I can, it is who I am , but, it's always nice to be able to wash it off afterward. There's nothing better than a simple hot shower and an amazing bar of soap that washes away the grime of the outdoors after a long day, but still lets the memory of the outdoors linger...seriously healthy skin is an even better, longer lasting result! Happy bubbles and lots of lather to you all! Love you! Timbi
