AquaCacteen is an ultra-refined elixir from organic cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica). AquaCacteen blocks the release of stress markers from sensory nerve cells in the skin and calms irritated skin.
Furthermore, it has excellent hydrating properties due to its high content of water-binding compounds. Clinical studies conducted on both women and men showed that AquaCacteen was exceptionally soothing and firming. Besides it was found to be very hydrating even when used in rinse-off products.
