Welcome to Bison Star! We are a Native owned and family operated body care company from Taos, New Mexico. Our products are made with organically, naturally and locally sourced ingredients and never contain animal products, dyes or perfumes. We started our company in January of 2018 after starting our family, when we realized that we desired natural products that we hadn’t yet found on the market.
Join our Journey as we build! We are in the midst of building our 1300 square foot workshop. Visit our Build page to learn more.
Husband and wife team Angelo and Jacquelene McHorse met in 2007 in Durango, CO during dorm move-in day as freshman at Fort Lewis College. They both loved studying at FLC where there was ample opportunity to ski, hike, camp and learn. Upon completion of their degrees in 2011 & 2012 they settled in Angelo’s hometown of Taos, NM. Before opening Bison Star Angelo managed a local farm and served as a Wilderness Ranger. Jacquelene worked in dental offices, animal supply stores and interned horse & colt starting. The two have traveled all over the world together and are now happy be raising their toddler. Angelo is a tribal member of Taos Pueblo and Jacquelene does not have any tribal affiliation.
Thank you for your support of Bison Star!
