Why Cactus

Who isn't looking for solutions to nourish, protect, calm, tighten, hydrate, and quench the dry parched patchy skin? What would you say if we told you the solution lies in a prickly, potent succulent?

Yes, Cactus is the newest and rarest component added to the world of skincare for its remarkable qualities. We know the idea of taking a thorny cactus to your face doesn't precisely say self-care and relaxation, but there's a reason those prickly guys thrive in style amidst the desert's dry air. Because? they're full of ultra-hydrating H2O that sustains them during long dry spells.

Hydrating ingredients are most commonly found in water storage plants, like prickly pear, aloe vera, and cactus flower, and are making their way into skin-care products, thanks to their ability to moisturize and soothe skin for hours at a time. This is due to their high levels of amino acids, such as glutamine, says cosmetic chemist Ginger King.

AquaCacteen from the cactus plant possesses a much higher concentration of electrolytes to hydrate the skin, and rich antioxidants that help prevent UV damage. From the brambly family, it's only the cactus that has a blend of multiple antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes. They protect the skin against sun damage, aging, and collagen loss.

AquaCacteen, the ultra-refined elixir from organic cactus, blocks the release of stress markers from sensory nerve cells in the skin and calms irritated skin. It soothes, protects, and tightens from a barrier level to the surface of the skin.

Furthermore, it has incredible hydrating properties due to its high content of water-binding compounds. Clinical studies ascertained that AquaCacteen was exceptionally mild yet nourishing and firming.
