Opuntia Ficus-indica

Barbary fig is a valuable natural rejuvenating remedy for the skin. Also known as Prickly Pear, Barbary Fig is extremely high in Antioxidants, Essential Fatty Acids, Amino Acids, Vitamin E and Vitamin K. Its exceptional hydration properties make it beneficial for all skin types, and works especially well on dry, mature skin.

The fatty acids in Barbary fig extract help to increase the firmness of the skin as well as keeping the pores tight.
The high concentration of linoleic acid makes the skin impermeable to pollution, while Vitamin E & K plus a variety of antioxidants such as Betalains (with a higher level than Acai, Beets, Blueberries, Gogi, or Pomegranate) protect the skin against free radicals, providing protection from environmental stress.

This anti-inflammatory cocktail also stimulates new cell growth, calms redness and soothes inflammation – an invaluable support for skin repair after trauma such as micro-cuts from shaving.
