Our Focus


The right beverage for the whole family

Because we care about our customers and the little ones they care for, we formulate our beverages to be free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. Our products are also Non-GMO Project verified, so you can rest easy knowing that we've provided a healthful, flavorful option that works for your entire crew.

Healthy and functional to keep you on the move

We believe that Mother Nature has provided us with everything we need to thrive and the prickly pear packs a serious punch. That's why we've created Cactus Water with your ultimate hydration in mind. Our low calorie, low sugar beverages deliver the ancient beneficial nutrients of the Opuntia cactus in exciting flavors that won't make you choose between taste and function. Studies suggest that betalain antioxidants contained in the prickly pear fruit may help reduce inflammation, provide hangover relief, and improve skin's appearance.  

We're here to help keep you on the move and at your best. 

Made in California (with love)

Based in Los Angeles, CALIWATER was founded by Matt McKee and Melissa Reed in 2014.  Since then, CALIWATER has grown exponentially. Our distribution has grown to include retailers such as Whole Foods, Cost Plus World Market, The Fresh Market, and Gelson's. We've sponsored amazing community events like Pedal on the Pier and had the privilege to form creative partnerships with the Ace Hotel, Ban.do, Creative Mornings, Create & Cultivate, and Renegade Craft Fair.

Fair & sustainable

Cactus Water is locally, fairly, and sustainably sourced (and manufactured) in California. We have a direct relationship with farmers who wild-harvest our prickly pears, which are handpicked seasonally from cactus plants that grow wildly in local desert regions and are centuries old. No cacti are harmed in the making.
