FARM-TO-FACE BEAUTY: 3 Sisters Transform Plums from their 100-Year Old Family Farm Into Powerful Organic Skincare

One could say that Le Prunier was 100 years in the making.  This emerging and innovative skincare brand was created by three sisters whose fourth-generation family farm is the world’s largest producer of organic plums.  Earl Taylor, the sisters’ great grandfather, started the Sutter, CA farm in 1916.  A century later, Le Prunier was born.  This is a true story about farm-to-face beauty. 

Siblings Jacqueline, Allison, and Elaine Taylor know plums.  They were raised to be very active in the family business, helping with harvest, working local farmers markets, and traveling the world to promote their product. 


While traveling with their father on frequent business trips to Korea and Japan, they discovered that Asian cultures view the plum as a superfood with benefits that extend beyond digestion.  The observation inspired the siblings to engage two world-renowned labs to explore alternative uses of the plum.  This ultimately led to the development of the patent-pending Plum Beauty Oil, the foundation of Le Prunier.

The journey to Le Prunier was about more than producing a beauty oil with hidden benefits.  The sisters were very clear in their desire to maintain sustainable, organic farming practices.  Le Prunier is made from 100% all-natural, organic plum byproducts in order to eliminate waste.  The proprietary blend of plum varietals is an excellent source of antioxidants, polyphenols, fatty acids, and vitamins.  The USDA-certified organic Plum Beauty Oil helps restore, replenish, and balance the skin.

At Luvi Beauty, we love a great founder’s story almost as much as we love an awesome beauty product.  We were exposed to Le Prunier via the Breaking Beauty podcast.  We reached out immediately after hearing the sisters’ amazing story.  Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil offers an indulgent and luxurious experience but with proven efficacy.  In clinical studies, it was shown to brighten skin tone and reduce hyper-pigmentation.  The multi-use Plum Beauty Oil is also more powerful than Argan oil (8X) and Marula oil (6X) at protecting the skin from the harmful effects of hydroxyl radicals.

It’s not surprising to see the buzz surrounding Le Prunier.  This is just a sampling of editor testimonials:

An apple a day might keep the doctor away, but applying a plum facial oil everyday will restore and refresh skin.”
— Erin Lukas, InStyle Magazine
Plum Beauty Oil smells like a dreamy walk in the orchard.”
— Bronwyn Isaac, Hello Giggles
“Since I’ve starting using it, I’ve had several people comment on how glowy I look, and I’m especially pleased with how *soft* my skin feels.”
— Hannah Baxter | Coveteur

We’re thrilled to have the Taylor sisters and Le Prunier join the Luvi family.  Learn more about the nourishing Plum Beauty Oil and stay tuned for more innovation from Le Prunier right here at Luvi Beauty.
