¿Que es Nopalera?

Nopalera was founded to elevate and celebrate Latin@ culture.

Our products are inspired by the beauty and richness of Mexico. We take our inspiration from the nopal cactus, an ancient symbol of Mexican culture and one of the most sustainable, nourishing, and versatile plants in the world. You can eat it, make textiles from it, and use it to hydrate your skin and hair.

It is strong, resilient, beautiful, and has always been here.

Just like us. 

Nuestra Jefa & Founder

I was raised by Mexican immigrant parents in California near the US/Mexican border, and I founded Nopalera to celebrate my culture. Loud and proud. No apologies.

Growing up, nopales were everywhere. We’d frequently cut them from our own yard and cook them. Later, I began using nopales in my artisan bath and body products, and Nopalera was born.

We’re committed to making high-end products with clean ingredients and celebrating natural beauty and resilience wherever we find it.

Thank you for joining us. We are family.
