Hope On The Tundra!


Shortly after getting up  this morning and right before our spring sun peaked up over the mountains an email landed in my ‘in’ box that many have been waiting for.

The beauty product company, Arxotica ,  started by three sisters, triplets, from the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta of Alaska has announced they are open for business!! 

Their on-line ‘store’ is open for business with their first product being offered, an anti-aging skin serum. The product is ‘high-end’ BUT not as expensive as many you have seen advertised both on TV and in magazines. If the beauty of our Alaska Native neighbor’s skin is any indication they are using some very powerful ingredients. The serum contains extract from berries with more anti-oxidants than the might Blueberry, Omega-3 virgin salmon oil and Alaskan glacier water. The product is coming in sizes that should be a three to five month supply which actually makes it very reasonable if you are using any beauty products.

There is a limited time sample offer that is going for $20.00 while supplies last.

More products are coming; a lotion, head& body wash, soaps  and other goodies.


One of the more exciting parts, at least to many of us here in Alaska, is that this is a company that is based in a village, can be supplied from products available in village areas and ultimately can hopefully be fully manufactured in Western Alaska villages.

This is the type of company the Alaska Marketplace, a competition sponsored by the Alaska Federation of Natives, is trying to help get started. The Sparck sisters competed in 2006 and 2008 wining assistance and seed money. Follow their story on Facebook or in the vast variety of articles that have been written about them.

 Please give a visit to their site, read about the new product, Quyunglii, pronounced kai-oong-lee, meaning “The Potent One” and IF you are quick enough get in on the limited time offer!!

    Hey, that’s great news about the business mentioned here by the three sisters from Chevak, AK. Good for them, and much success to them.

    I have an admission to make:
    Sometimes I go off on a wild goose chase in my “recreational Googling” activities.

    Case in point:
    I wondered what airline(s?) serves that tiny community…was it Pen Air or maybe Era? And, lo-and-behold, the one web site that I found to address this, in fact, claims this tiny community gets its ONLY air service from Era Air, the same Tweto-owned company as highlighted in the previous post here.

    I just thought that was quite a co-ing-kee-dink and worth reporting.

    Small world, huh?

    Congratulations Sparck sisters!
    Your site is lovely and easy to maneuver around in.
    Am waiting for your line of washes and soaps as I have worked too hard to get these lines of aging on my face to wish them away :-)
    Very best wishes in all that you have undertaken in providing top quality products , not only in themselves, but in the adherence to the values of your beginnings as well.

    Great idea from innovative triplets from one of the poorest regions of our Great State – the Western Alaska Coastal Area.
