Cactus is Skincare's Super Ingredient.

 

At Cactus Flower Skincare, we often get asked - "Why Cactus?". The answer is easy. Cactus Flower Extract and Cactus Oils are skincare's unsung secret ingredients for creating glowing, beautiful skin. 

There is a lot of science we could throw at you, but in a nutshell, the active Cactus ingredients we use are a mecca for the skin... 

 

Cactus Flower Extract:

 

  • Is a natural anti-inflammatory, reducing redness, irritation and soothing the skin.
  • Is an analgesic. Analgesics naturally reduce pain, so for skin, this produces a soothing effect. 
  • Is chock-full of antioxidants which feed your skin making it healthy and glowing. 
  • These antioxidants protect your skin from the damage caused free radicals which ultimately, slows down the ageing process. 
  • Just like an actual cactus, Cactus Flower Extract helps the skin to retain moisture - hydrated skin is an absolute must for preventing premature ageing. 

 

  

Prickly Pear Oil / Prickly Pear Seed Oil: 

 

  • Prickly Pear Oil is ridiculously high in Essential Fatty Acids including Omega 6 & 9 which are an absolutely essential component in the skin's lipid barrier - the barrier that locks in moisture and helps protect the skin from damage and the loss of elasticity.
  • It contains one of the highest concentrations of Vitamin E of any oil on the market (150% more than Argan Oil). 
  • It's easily absorbed into the skin and has been proven to reduce inflammation, redness and rosacea related skin issues. 
  • Rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and vitamin K. 
  • Contains antioxidants called betalains which are the red & yellow pigments found in plants. Prickly Pear contains the highest natural concentration of betalains of any antioxidant rich superfood. These antioxidants protect the skin from free radicals preventing wrinkle formation.
  • Its Vitamin K concentration brightens hyperpigmentation, dark spots and those pesky dark, under the eye circles.
  • Its high linoleic acid concentration helps to achieve balance in skin, preventing sebum from hardening which in turn reduces the likelihood of blocked pores. For acne sufferers, this can be a game changer.
