The prickly pear cacti have developed highly effective moisture-retention abilities and resistance to UV-A radiation, which are characteristics that are incredibly beneficial for our skin. Prickly Pear stem extract is made from extracts of the prickly pear fruit and stem, and has been found to be an effective ingredient for skin hydration, nourishment, and protection. Aqua Cacteen is being called the next generation Aloe Vera. This ultra refined aloe vera elixiris rich in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins to protect, soothe, and moisturize the skin. It also protects against environmental stressors that we are bombarded with every day to firm and deeply hydrate the skin.Skin Benefits of Prickly Pear

Bioactive ingredients… Let’s talk about what makes skincare WORK!!!
Why does Skincare have to be so complicated?
All of us want beautiful and healthy skin. We want that youthful radiance to last us for years to come. And most of us continue to fall for marketing gimmicks that tell us THIS is the holy grail product so buy me now!! So we do!! Speaking from experience, it was the constant let down that I got from product after product that led me into my career field of aesthetic dermatology and aesthetics.
