When the recession hit in 1990, I could no longer afford the very expensive beauty products I had been using.
However, not wanting to give up, and having very dry skin I thought... "I can do this."
I decided to create my own natural skincare products.
I became obsessed, reading every peer-reviewed journal on skin I could find. Then with the help of a pharmacist friend, I developed a natural skincare system for myself that solved my dry skin problem.
Then I started solving skin problems for friends. It became a hobby.
Then, through word of mouth I seemed to be solving more and more people's problems until it was obvious I needed to make an actual business out of it.
Since then, Cactus Skincare has developed a cult following in Australia and the United States where it has been stocked exclusively through Plastic Surgeries and Dermatologists.
Ryan Clark, (Cactus Skincare being a family business), is my son and has now joined the team taking the lead from me in heading up the company.
Our vision at Cactus Skincare is to provide a natural product that works. A product that uses natural organic ingredients that are not only sourced ethically but which are active and produce results. A product we can be proud of.
