The natural beauty trend is in full bloom and the prickly pear, which is (surprisingly!) a cactus, is the latest must-have ingredient. The prickly pear, which is most commonly used in serums and moisturizers, offers moisturizing and regenerating benefits and neutralizes complexions. KYPRIS and Kahina Giving Beauty are two natural beauty brands that are taking advantage of what the prickly pear has to offer.
De Mamiel's Summer Facial Oil (the brand created an oil for each season), is intended to add a heady dose of radiance to your skin. A blend of antioxidant-rich aromatic oils and flower essences (the essential prickly pear), delivers an intense dose of nutrients to your face.
Harvested in Arizona, KYPRIS uses the prickly pear in their Body Elixir: Inflorescence because of its high levels of amino acids and vitamin E, which rejuvenate the skin. This bottle not only holds the magical properties of the prickly pear, but is also home to 11 other active natural ingredients including sunflower and vitamin C ester, a compound known to boost collagen (it’s like a garden of youth for your face).
Kahina Giving Beauty has the mantra, “reveal beauty”, which is exactly what their Prickly Pear Seed Oil achieves. The vitamin K and essential fatty acids that are found in the prickly pear help to reduce the effects of aging and accomplishes the impossible feat of brightening under eye circles. It’s time to give your skin some much-needed botanical love.
