ANCHORAGE-For the first time ever an entrepreneur from the last frontier will be featured on the ABC show, "Shark Tank."

For Commercial fisherman, Lauren Padawer the decision to leave Cordova for Tinsel Town came after a call from a producer for "Shark Tank."
 
For the first time ever one home grown product is on the line.

"Our company hand harvested glacial mud on the Copper River delta and we manufacture high quality luxury spa products."

This product comes straight from the Copper River."The glacial facial. The face that time forgot," says Padawer.

This business venture started more than a decade ago on a rafting trip."We stopped on one side of the river watching bears catching fish and we DECided to take a dip in this clear gorgeous pools. They we clear because all the mud had settled out of them but as soon as we set foot in, my feet sank into this buttery mud and everyone covered themselves with It," she says.

Padawer says she gets help from time to time, but primarily she is the only person making mud into spa gold, "I'm the chief mud harvester, bottle washer, inventory manager.
 

Padawer's lips are sealed on whether she made a deal.
