Cece Meadows founded Prados Beauty in 2018 under the tagline “Proudly Indigenous, unapologetically beautiful.” So far, the company has clearly succeeded on both fronts. It is the first Xicana/Indigenous-owned beauty brand to be available at big-box department stores such as JCPenney. Its products have been showcased at mainstage events such as New York Fashion Week. And Meadows’s success all feeds back toward her roots. When you buy from Prados Beauty, a portion of the proceeds goes toward charities that support Indigenous communities, veterans and children with special needs.
