Hi, my name is Julia Anya Emerson and I’m the founder of ANBIA®. Some folks have asked why create a new brand of soaps when there are so many great ones out there. There are lots of fragrant soaps, all shapes, colors and sizes, and they wash and smell great. However, ANBIA® bar soaps not only wash, they cleanse, exfoliate and nourish your skin at the same time. This is because our bar soaps are made with gluten-free oatmeal and are USDA certified organic under our Registered Trademark.
So why did I create this new brand of certified organic oatmeal based soaps? About 20 years ago, I was in a fire accident at home cooking Thanksgiving Dinner. I burned not only my kitchen but also 30% of my body with second- and third-degree burns. Thanksgiving for me now is always a bitter sweet occasion for sentimental reasons. I was very fortunate to find a talented Plastic Surgeon who not only saved my life but also taught me how to cleanse, exfoliate and nourish my skin back to its natural state. I went through about 19 surgical procedures over a three year period, lots of pain, tears and patience to bear. I’m not perfect now; in fact I still have scars from the many skin grafts that were needed to patch me up. But I don’t have any keloids or tight, dry, ruffled skin. My skin is smooth, soft and has a healthy glow at all times. These results were achieved by using oatmeal soaps and oatmeal lotions after baths. I’m a living example of the benefits of oatmeal products on human skin.
I do need to emphasis that ANBIA® soaps do not offer a miracle cure but they will lift off the dead cells from your body and at the same time lock in moisture retrieved from the oats. This makes room for new skin cells to flourish and evolve into healthy skin. Do you remember how soft your Grandma’s skin always felt? She used oatmeal soap, at least mine did, and I hope my future grandchildren will feel the same when they hug me.
If you’re like me with sensitive, burnt or problematic skin and have tried every soap imaginable on the market without results, give our ANBIA® soaps a try. You won’t regret it!
“Whether you start your day with a bowl of oatmeal or lather up with ANBIA®, the benefits of oats are endless for your skin”.
