Meet Taymer Mason a Barbadian trained microbiologist and food scientist. A self-described bookworm growing up she spent her days reading scientific books, writing poetry and painting. Taymer (pronounced Tay mar) describes herself as an artist at heart. In 2010 the vegan chef wrote Caribbean Vegan which was released as a second edition in November 2016.
Taymer was always obsessed with botany at a young age and believes that all plants have a purpose and in 2006 she started making products for her natural hair using Barbadian molasses, wild hibiscus flowers and forest made island oils. This bilingual globe trotter spends her days writing cookbooks on veganism, marketing artisanal small businesses and creating new hair and skin products.
She hopes to launch a ‘clean’ natural hair and skin line by the end of 2017.
