Allison Taylor, CO-Founder of Le Prunier

In September 2016, California-bred sisters Jacqueline, Allison and Elaine Taylor cofounded Le Prunier, an innovative and organic beauty line based on the Power of Plum. Dried plums originated from the Caucasus region of Western Asia, an area widely renowned as the "Land of Longevity" due to the incredible lifespan and exceptional health of its people. The plum has been called the "Fruit of Life" for centuries in this region. In November 2017, Allison launched together with her sister their first retail product with Neiman Marcus in Dallas, TX. Today, the sisters carry on the farm's legacy with a 4th generation perspective - tradition meets innovation.
