About Us

Who is Prickly Pear?

We are two moms, aging and in our 30’s, between us we have 8 children and two husbands! A classy and a crunchy, armed with a mission to find a product that would get rid of our tired, dull skin. Aging wasn't our only enemy! Daily Stresses, forgetting to hydrate, not resting or taking the time to recuperate were leaving us ragged. Our mission was personal. It wasn’t to save the world from the dreaded wrinkle; It was simply to find a routine that was quick, effective, and wouldn’t expose us to the harmful chemicals that are often hidden in cosmetics. We wanted to get our glow back and age less!

Knowing that beauty isn’t just skin deep our entire company is designed to support beauty from the inside out. Together our 3 step restoration line, herbal bath infusions and beauty detox stood up against the enemy of time. We got our glow back and want to share it with you!  



Who is Prickly Pear for?

It’s for the mom who just looked in the mirror and realized she has wrinkles that weren’t there yesterday.  It’s for the mom who is conscious about what she is putting on her skin and in her body. If you’re not that mom and don’t mind slathering your face with chemicals, then Prickly Pear my not be for you. But it is for the mom who wants to glow more without spending a ton of time getting ready.  It’s for the mom who wants natural products but doesn’t want to compromise her look!  


What in the world is a prickly pear?  

Prickly Pear is a cactus!  Also known as Barbary Fig which comes from the Opuntia cactus. And, no we are not selling cactus plants.

 

You want me to put that where? Ouch! 

Everywhere! We love putting cactus on our face!  No, it doesn’t hurt because the true beauty of the prickly pear cactus is found on the inside. When the prickly spines of the cactus are removed, the most amazing oil can be found. It’s properties are second to none. It contains more Vitamin E than any beauty oil on the market (150% more than Argan oil) - making it an incredibly powerful oil for skin health. Prickly Pear Oil absorbs quickly, restores elasticity, tightens pores, softens skin, slows the aging process, and prevents wrinkles. It’s amazing for sensitive skin and 100% non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores making them appear larger. And that my friend is why we love it! Now that didn’t hurt a bit!
