A few minutes on this page could make a liftime of difference.
In 2008 I was diagnosed and treated for a rare form of Melanoma. And like everyone else that hears their Doctor use the cancer word,
I started rethinking many parts of life. Changing my diet, being more aware of time in the sun, and looking at the products
I was using on my skin. This created an awareness of the questionable ingredients
used in over-the-counter skin care products. Ingredients such as parabens and
EDTA's (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), or PEG's (polyethylene glycols), and petroleum products
such as mineral oil. Because what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies,
I felt that there had to be a better way.
I spent many hours doing research on what was good and what was bad - what works and why it works.
Everything kept leading back to using plant based ingredients. Ingredients such as jojoba oil, cocoa butter,
horsetail butter, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, seabuckthorn seed oil, rose absolute, shea butter, mango butter,
aloe vera, orange essential oil, camellia oil, goji berry oil, and vegetable glycerine.
The initial intention was not to create a business with something to sell,
but rather to make a product safe and effective for my own use.
Along the way family and friends who had positive results from using samples
encouraged me to open the doors of Nona Pearl Skin Care.
Hand crafted in small batches to better control the process, rather than machined mixed in large batches,
I believe these are the best value in skin care products.

antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that work together to protect the skin.
When using Nona Pearl products you may find that you will use a far less amount compared to other moisturizers,
