About Sandra Velazquez

Nopalera Founder Sandra Velazquez

"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."

OMG Janny… that interview with Nopalera founder Sandra was FIRE!!  

As one who pretty much ignores the entire beauty industry, I had never heard of her. 

As an entrepreneur, Latina and Capitán Mamá, I absolutely loved the interview.!!
