Cactus Elixir by Mibelle Soothes and Hydrates

March 9, 2006

Mibelle AG Biochemistry has launched AquaCacteen, an ultra-refined cactus elixir for sensitive and dry skin. The pads of the cactus Opuntia are known as nopales and are used in Mexico as dietary supplement to promote weight loss and as medicine to treat inflammation and pain. The cosmetic ingredient AquaCacteen contains purified components of the Opuntia cactus which provide long-lasting hydration to skin, even in rinse-off applications.. AquaCacteen also has soothing properties which could be demonstrated in cell culture systems with nerve cells. The product was found to inhibit the depolarization of sensory nerve cells upon stress.
It can also be used in sun care products and skin care products to soothe sensitive and dry skin, deeply hydrate, repair, regenerate and protect from environmental stress factors.
