Yes! Cactus Flower Skincare was founded by a lady with super sensitive skin and so this has been kept in the front of our minds for every product we have created. As with any product, if there is any irritation that develops, please discontinue use and feel free to contact us with any specific questions you may have.
Because Cactus ingredients are absolutely incredible for your skin! We’ve written a blog about this though so click here (insert link).
Most toners have been developed to balance out the PH levels in your skin after cleansing because many commercial cleansers strip all oils from your skin and leave it unbalanced. Our cleanser does not do this. The formulation of our cleanser has been designed to only remove excess oils, leaving your PH balance where it should be.
We have not in the past and never will test our products on animals.
We use almost entirely vegan friendly ingredients in our products. The only ingredient that is not strictly vegan is our Australian Beeswax which is sourced in Australia from a sustainable source.
No. Our products are made in an Australian factory where absolutely NO palm oil products are allowed inside.
Our products are 100% natural & organic.
Our products are made in Sydney & the Hunter Valley.
None of the Cactus Flower Skincare products contain any ingredients that are considered harmful for pregnancy but we do recommend that before starting any new product whilst pregnant that you consult your doctor first and err on the side of caution. If you have specific questions on ingredients, please feel free to contact us. Also, congratulations!.
Your CFS products will do best being stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. A sealed box within a bathroom drawer for example is an ideal place.
Antioxidants are compounds found in food that neutralise toxins in the body and fight free radicals by preventing oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals that may cause damage to skin cells.
The body is constantly under attack from oxidation which is where oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Since electrons like to be in pairs, these single atoms are known as free radicals and can cause damage to cells, proteins & DNA as they seek to find a pair.
Environmental damage for skin includes UV damage, blue light and air pollution. There can all exacerbate the ageing process by enabling the oxidation process and breaking down the skin barrier and collagen production.
Absolutely. Cactus Flower products are sensitive skin friendly and have been formulated to help the skin regulate its natural oil balance which is ideal for developing / hormonal skin.
Yes, our products are suitable for acne prone skin. In particular, the Prep Pack & Light Balancing Crème have been designed to help acne prone skin.
Yes, our products are suitable for redness and have shown to be helpful. If you have an inflammatory skin condition like Rosacea, anecdotal evidence suggests Cactus Flower may help, however, before starting any new regimen, please consult your doctor or skincare professional and discontinue if any irritation does occur after using.
Our products do not contain any ingredients that have shown to exacerbate eczema in the skin. With any new products however, please consult your doctor or skincare professional prior and discontinue if any irritation does occur.
Our products do not contain any ingredients that have shown to cause dermatitis in the skin. With any new products however, please consult your doctor or skincare professional prior and discontinue if any irritation does occur.

We recommend applying a pump of the Lemon Myrtle Cleanser to your face and gently massaging across your skin. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel (never use tissue as it leaves residue on your skin).
We recommend use morning & night.
We recommend applying a small amount of the GE (5-10cent piece sized) to the face and gently massaging across your face. Do not roughly scrub as being rough with your skin can damage the sensitive capillaries of your face. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry your skin with a clean towel.
We recommend using the GE once a week or twice if you have oily, combination or acne prone skin.
If the Gentle Exfoliant is mildly tingling your skin, it will just be the active ingredients (the clays) drawing impurities from your skin. If it burns however, immediately wash off from your face and discontinue use.
Yes, the GE has proven many times to help with acne as it removes dead skin cells, impurities and excess oils from your skin.
The Gentle Exfoliant uses 100% natural Joboba Beads as the exfoliant which are a soft (& not scratchy exfoliant). Joboba beads are made from rounded, solid joboba oil, not a microplastics like many other exfoliants on the market & so are completely safe for your skin & the environment.
We recommend using the White Clay Mask after the Lemon Myrtle Cleanser & Gentle Exfoliant for the best results. Apply a medium layer to your skin avoiding the mouth and under-eye area and leave on for 10-15 minutes (until completely dry). Rinse off with warm water or gently wipe off with a warm, damp 100% cotton cloth. Pat skin dry and follow with your moisturiser.
If your skin has reacted to clay masks in the past then yes, do a patch test. There are no ingredients that should irritate your skin, but everyone’s skin reacts differently.
We recommend using the White Clay Mask once a week or twice if you have oily, combination or acne prone skin. We don't recommend using the clay on your whole face more than twice a week. You can also use it as a spot treatment for those pesky one off pimples that pop up!
The White Clay Mask uses Australian Kaolin clay which is a potent active ingredient. This can cause your skin to tingle, especially because the clay we use is so fresh. If it is unbearably tingling, please wash off and try the mask again in around 2-3 weeks when the clay has aged slightly. If it is only a mild tingle, then this is completely normal and will only last for a minute or two before fading.
After cleansing, apply a small amount of the LBC to the face & neck in the morning and / or at night. Gently massage into your skin.
For oily / combination skin, use morning & night. Normal skin can use this crème in the morning & use the Nature’s Antioxidant Crème at night.
Yes, the Light Balancing Crème works beautifully with the products of the Prep Pack.
Yes, the Light Balancing Crème has been designed for acne / oil prone skin. It has been formulated to help your skin achieve a natural balance of oils and therefore produce less oil which in turn, prevents acne.
If your skin is still feeling oily after a couple of weeks using the LBC, we recommend teaming it up with the Perfect Prep Pack. If you have and are still finding your skin is oily, this product may not be right for your skin.
If your skin is feeling dry your skin may need a heavier moisturiser. We recommend the Nature’s Antioxidant Crème or combo’ing the LBC with the Moisture Boost Serum..
After cleansing, apply a small amount of the Nature's Antioxidant Crème to the face & neck in the morning and / or at night. Gently massage into your skin.
For Normal Skin, we recommend using the Nature's Antioxidant Crème morning & night. If your skin is a bit oilier, use the Light Balancing Crème in the morning and the Nature's Antioxidant Crème at night. If it is drier, use the Nature's Antioxidant Crème in the morning & Intense Hydrating Crème at night..
Yes, the Nature's Antioxidant Crème works beautifully with the products of the Prep Pack and many of our other moisturisers.
If your skin is feeling oily after using the Nature's Antioxidant Crème, it may be too heavy for your skin and so we recommend using the Light Balancing Crème.
If your skin is feeling dry after using the Nature's Antioxidant Crème, you may benefit from a heavier moisturiser. We recommend the Intense Hydrating Crème or combo’ing the Nature's Antioxidant Crème with the Moisture Boost Serum.
After cleansing, apply a small amount of the Intense Hydrating Crème to the face & neck in the morning and / or at night. Gently massage into your skin.
For dry skin, we recommending using the Intense Hydrating Crème morning & night.
Yes, the Intense Hydrating Crème works beautifully with the products of the Prep Pack and many of our other moisturisers for extra hydration.
If your skin is feeling oily after using the Intense Hydrating Crème, it may be too heavy for your skin and so we recommend using the Nature's Antioxidant Crème instead.
If your skin is still feeling dry after using the Intense Hydrating Crème, then we recommend adding in the Moisture Boost Serum and/or Daily Rejuve Facial Oil to your routine to give your skin extra hydration.
After moisturising and ideally, before you go to bed, pat a small amount (pinhead size) of the Intense Eye Crème under the eye out to your brow bone. This is a very sensitive area so we recommending gently patting in an outward motion and not massaging the crème in. It should sit on top of your skin.
We recommend using it every night or sporadically during the day if the skin under your eyes is feeling tight and dry.
Yes, absolutely. The Intense Eye Crème can be used in combination with any of our products.
Eye creams are beneficial for everyone as the skin under your eye is actually thinner than the rest of your face. It therefore dries out more easily and is more susceptible to the early signs of ageing. Eye creams can help slow down the ageing process by ensuring the skin under your eye remains hydrated.
After cleansing, apply a small amount to the face and neck, gently massaging into the skin. For dry skin, follow immediately with the Nature’s Antioxidant Crème or Intense Hydrating Crème. For oily, combo & normal skin types, this serum may be enough hydration to use on its own.
The Moisture Boost Serum can be used as a booster for all skin types as required or for Very Dry Skin, we recommend using it underneath the Intense Hydrating Crème.
After cleansing & moisturising, apply a few drops to the face and neck before bed. Gently massage into the skin.
If you have very dry skin, you may find that you need to use the FO daily, if your skin is not as dry however, you may prefer to use it as an ad hoc treatment.
