Weleda, global leaders in organic and natural skincare, is expanding its innovative Hydrating Facial Care range with the introduction of the 24h Hydrating Facial Lotion, formulated with the range’s lead plant Prickly Pear Cactus.
This new facial lotion delivers long lasting yet weightless hydration with a unique formulation providing immediate and effective moisture while giving your skin that mattified look – perfect for the warmer months ahead.
The secret to this long lasting hydration is the Prickly Pear Cactus extract. Sustainably grown and derived from the arid deserts of Mexico, Prickly Pear Cactus is being lauded as nature’s answer to hyaluronic acid. This is due to the high mucilage content (think juicy, moisture-rich goodness) in the plant’s unique paddle-shaped leaf which is the most potent part of the plant, and is where Weleda extracts from. The mucilage contains polysaccharides, a water-binding property that allows the cactus to retain moisture even in the driest of climates.
Other ingredients include Aloe Vera juice, Cucumber, Green Mandarin, and Rosemary, along with several natural butters and plant oils such as Babassu oil.
