Helper to retain moisture in the dermis-Prickly Pear

Prickly Pear

You may not think of the desert as a destination for quenching skincare ingredients, but the arid landscape requires plants to be really, really good at retaining moisture and defending themselves against the sun. 

For those who are unacquainted, Prickly Pear is a red, bulbous fruit covered in protective bristles that grows on paddle cacti in the American southwest, Australia and the Mediterranean. The plant easily soaks up and retains water to become plump and juicy and the fruits are then harvested for food — and now skincare.

Prickly Pear is the one of the main ingredients in our Full-Body Skin Firming Balm, which helps to keep moisture in the dermis for a long time. This helps skin feel soothed and less sensitive. It’s also proven to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
