We are Ryan and Deborah and we are a mother and son team. Or rather I am Ryan (as I am the one writing these words) and I work with my mother Deborah. Mum first started working on Cactus Skincare in the early 1990s to try and solve her dry skin problem. She had a moment where she just decided that she could do it if she committed herself. She read countless peer review journals on skin and ultimately found a solution. Following that she wanted to solve my father's dermatitis problem, solved that. From there she moved onto fixing a family members pimples. Turned out she had a knack for it.
She gave out the products as gifts on birthdays and at Christmas and when people saw the results it was clear they needed to formalise the formulations as a brand and Cactus Skincare was born.
The name "Cactus Skincare" is supposed to conjure images of the cactus that is able to survive and stay hydrated in the harshest of environments and thrive. We here in Australia have one of the harshest environments in the world and we want to help people's skin thrive.
Speaking for myself... I wanted to come onboard with cactus as I could see that my mother's skin was so much better than the skin of my friend's mums so when the opportunity came to help launch the online store? I jumped.
Our focus is to not only to help create glowing skin but to foster a deeper connection with our customers and make memorable experiences.
Have any questions for me or mum? Drop us a line:
Hope to hear from you soon!
