This wonderful plant of the cacti family is native from Central America. It has been known since the time of the Aztecs. It arrived at our latitudes towards the end of the 15th century. This happened probably at the return of the expedition of Christopher Columbus.
It took root immediately in the southern areas of our country, and in particular in Puglia, Calabria and Sicily.
These combined regions represent the third largest producer in the world and its fruits are exported all over Europe.
Numerous studies have highlighted the special properties of this plant. Both in the food sector and for the treatment of many diseases.
All parts of the plant, such as the cladodes (commonly called the Pale), the flowers, the fruit and the seeds contained in the fruits, can be used directly. Or they might be transformed into high quality derivatives.
We performed sophisticated analysis and many studies carried out in collaboration with researchers from the University of Cosenza. Using this studies we decided to dedicate ourselves to the creation of natural cosmetic products.
These natural cosmetics have a very high added value thanks to the use of one of the most precious derivatives of the plant. The oil extracted from the seeds contained in the fruit.
Known since immemorial time by the Berber women who populate the desert areas of the Maghreb, prickly pear seed oil is a concentrate of well-being for the skin.
It is rich in precious fatty acids such as Omega 6 and 3, Vitamin E and phytosterols. They are found in values and quality far superior to other types of natural oils currently on the market.
Antioxidant and moisturizing
The prickly pear seed oil is a very powerful antioxidant and moisturizer. That exerts a strong anti-aging action. This special action slows down skin aging and the formation of wrinkles or other skin imperfections.
After very careful and complex research, we have selected exclusively Italian producers. They could guarantee and certify the quality of a product among the best in the world.
There was no other cactus seeds similar in terms of concentration of active ingredients. This is possible thanks to the particular conditions of microclimate and soil quality in the south of Italy.
Our goal from the very beginning has been to offer to our clients the first line of cosmetics exclusively based on the inclusion in the composition of very pure prickly pear seed oil.
And absolutely Made in Italy production !
Cosmetic product of the highest quality
To arrive at the creation of a cosmetic product of the highest quality, it was not enough to select the best ingredients. Formulation, competence and craftsmanship quality work were also important.
We therefore turned to leading experts in the field and certified laboratories far from industrial logic and with the utmost attention to absolute quality.
Safety of cosmetic products
Among many criteria, we have imposed on our experts the task of avoiding, as much as possible, the inclusion in the formulation of potentially toxic ingredients or “attention” by European and world agencies specialized in the safety of cosmetic products.
We are proud to confirm that this goal has been achieved!
None of our cosmetics contain “controversial” ingredients and we get excellent notations from bodies specializing in formulation safety assessment.
The evolution of our project will be in the near future, the expansion of our range to bring a series of specific products for every need.
We aim to propose ourselves as a reference brand for the use of high quality raw materials and innovative cosmetics.
We can offer extraordinary results and a guarantee of safety, purity and an obsessive attention to artisanal production processes.
