More about MintPear’s Story:

MintPear was founded by husband and wife, Feras and Rita Almusa. Rita is a Master Esthetician, Makeup Artist, and Microblading Artist. Her passion for beauty and skincare started at a very young age. Born into a household with three sisters. Her mother was a makeup artist as well. Rita suffered from severe acne during her young adolescent years, which ignited her passion and determination to study the skin and thoroughly analyze ingredients.

In 2015 Rita and her husband had their first son. At the time they were both working in the corporate world. Working 60+ hours/week for companies they were receiving no emotional fulfillment from. When their son was born, they were living in Seattle, away from family. Rita took the 6 weeks allotted by my maternity leave, and when that time had passed, she couldn’t accept sending their 6-week-old son to a daycare for 12-14hours/day.

It was then, Rita had a true moment of clarity, listening to her motherly intuition and a bigger voice inside of her saying: “You have a bigger purpose than what you are settling for”. Rita knew right then and there, she needed to go back to her passion, educating others and providing honest skincare solutions to those in need. 



Why the name MintPear:

The color ‘Mint’ represents a soothing yet invigorating energy, reminding you, life should be filled with peace, adventure, and excitement. The ‘Pear’ represents accepting and loving yourself and your voluptuous curves as a strong and powerful woman.

MintPear’s Mission:

MintPear’s initiative is to create awareness and a movement behind being conscientious about what ingredients are in your products. Knowing there are alternative solutions to harsh chemicals and antibiotics.
