Charmane Skillen is a champion for shifting consumer lifestyles to a more wholly nutritious and beneficial one. At the same time, she has grown a successful niche business called s.a.l.t. sisters in rural America with an exceptionally determined entrepreneurial spirit.
Charmane's motivation to create, deliver and distribute an exceptional food product stems from a passion for Nature’s most essential elements and for her strong familial ties. The brand name (s.a.l.t sisters) is an acronym for her four daughters: Sydney, Alexis, Lauren and Taylor.
Armed with the knowledge of the incredible benefits of unprocessed and unrefined sea salt she sourced and packaged a product under the s.a.l.t. sisters label and scheduled herself to appear at regional farmers markets each week to sell product in 2007. From those humble roots the product line grew in popularity and led to an expansion of its offerings in 2009. Thus, along with a strong portfolio of unrefined sea salt, the company staked a claim in organic cane sugars (c.a.n.e), seasoning rubs (r.u.b.s), vanilla infusion kits (b.e.a.n), and natural herb blends (h.e.r.b) and most recently all natural dip blends (d.i.p.s). The wide ranging palate of the brand commanded the attention of a wholesale market and many discernible chefs. The products even received a nod from Giada De Laurentiis in a 2009 segment of holiday gift ideas for NBC’s TODAY show, in 2013 Clean Eating endorsed both the Mediterranean r.u.b.s. and the vanilla infusion kit as part of their Clean Choice Awards, and that same year Fox 5 News ran a feature about the products.
What started as a personal endeavor to educate the populous on the many benefits of unrefined salt has blossomed into a business venture based in Goshen, Indiana comprised of fifteen employees and a healthy distribution of product in 44 states and Canada. What has not changed is the mission of the brand:
To produce and provide a product that is healthy, unrefined and made from responsibly harvested ingredients while at the same time teaching the consumer to make flavorful foods simply.
