Heritage

In September 2016, siblings Jacqueline, Allison and Elaine Taylor co-founded Le Prunier, an innovative and organic beauty line based on The Power of Plum. Their story begins in 1916, when their great grandfather, Earl Taylor, began farming the rich soils of Sutter County, 30 miles north of Sacramento. Their grandfather, George Taylor, continued the tradition followed by their father, Richard. The sisters spent much of their youth on the farm, helping with harvest, working farmers markets and attending trade shows to promote product.

In 1985, the family made a collective decision to shift to organic farming practices and expand operations to include facilities in Europe and Asia. The girls accompanied their father on many of his business trips, often frequenting Japan and Korea.

While on these trips, they learned how the Asian culture regards the plum as a superfood with many extraordinary benefits beyond digestion. This compelled the girls to reexamine their main commodity.

In 2014, the sisters made the decision to explore alternative uses of the plum by partnering with two world-renowned labs. Their goal was to uncover the hidden benefits of this powerful fruit, while maintaining sustainable, organic farming practices. Among one of the areas explored was utilizing the overlooked byproducts of the plum. What they discovered—the most precious and powerful oil—is now Le Prunier. Today, the sisters carry on the farm’s legacy with a 4th generation perspective— tradition meets innovation.

Sustainability

Their commitment to the environment is a driving force behind Le Prunier. So much of what the family does depends on our beautiful earth. From start to finish, the products remain ethical, eco-friendly and organic so that you reap the benefits in every last drop and together, continue to protect our source.

The family has been committed to organic farming since the 1980's — long before the term was a household phrase. They pride themselves on sustainable farming practices, including the use of compost and cover crops for their fertilizer program, allowing bees to naturally pollinate crops and employing environmentally friendly biological insecticides derived from natural materials.

They've made the conscious decision to recycle raw materials and utilize byproducts in order to eliminate waste. They are a brand, a family and a farm that is redefining beauty through their unwavering commitment to sustainability.
