Nopalera: Sandra Velasquez is promoting Nopalera, a line of skin care products made from the prickly cactus nopal. The return of Daniel Lubetzky, who has his eye on a specific object, can be seen in the upcoming episode of the ABC show. Kind’s CEO applauded Sandra in a social media promo for the work her company is doing to reduce the use of plastic bottles in lotions.
Sandra will appear in an upcoming episode of Shark Tank, demanding $300,000 in exchange for a 5% stake in Nopalera, a cactus-focused cosmetics line. During her pitch, she mentioned growing up in Southern California with Mexican immigrant parents and seeing cacti everywhere. The plant is very adaptable, it can be eaten, it can be used to make textiles and its moisturizing components are good for skin and hair. She will showcase a variety of her products including soaps, scrubs, moisturizing bars and more. According to Guest Shark, their soap smells great. When he asks about the moisturizer, she replies that the bars would replace a plastic bottle of lotion. She also mentions that her company cares about the environment and that her lotions are 70% water.
What are the new Shark Tank products?
Daniel said, “Sandra, I love what you just said. I love you. It’s like my pet peeve. He continued: “It’s all water, but it’s contained in a plastic bottle. So you just buy a few plastic bottles.”
