INCI: Opuntia Ficus-Indica Stem Extract (and) Glycerin (and) Phenoxyethanol (and) Aqua/WaterProduct Category: Active
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 dye to its high content of water-binding compounds.
Clinical studies conducted on both women and men showed that it was exceptionally soothing and firming. It was found to be very hydrating even when used in rinse-off products.
AquaCacteen is available in 2 versions:
- AquaCacteen: Standard Version
- AquaCacteen nc (preservative-free version): which is ECOCERT certified and contains 96.5% of ingredients from organic farming.
The origin, quality and concentration of cactus extract are exactly the same in both versions.
For cold process incorporation, dissolve the active into the aqueous phase. In cold/hot processes, add during the cooling phase below 40◦C. Temperatures of up to 60◦C for a short time do not affect the stability of AquaCacteen.
