Don't worry, we're not suggesting you put prickly cacti on your face.
The water derived from these cacti is currently receiving high praise from beauty experts.
You've probably noticed the recent surge in cactus water as a big name in skincare, but is this just another trendy fad that will fade in a few months?
Personality Skincare, for example, has entire product lines with cactus water as the main feature.
What makes cactus water different from other ingredients for your skin?
A plethora of buzzy beauty ingredients find their way into skincare, each promising an otherworldly glow.
But one is poised to outperform them all: the cactus.
And, when you think about it, it makes perfect sense: cacti not only survive, but thrive in the harsh desert environment because they're packed with nutrients and water to keep them going during long dry spells.
So, what's the big deal?
The cactus water contains high concentrations of electrolytes to hydrate the skin, as well as antioxidants that help prevent UV damage.
Are there any other health advantages to drinking cactus water?
When I'm feeling sluggish in the afternoon, I drink cactus water.
It is an excellent natural alternative to energy drinks because it contains electrolytes, which not only hydrate but are also necessary for healthy skin and hair.
Furthermore, the antioxidants cleanse your system of any toxins.
What is the difference between Cactus Water and Cactus Flower and Cactus Oil ?
All of these are derived from the Prickly Pear Cactus (Opuntia Ficus Indica), the only cactus that contains a combination of antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes that protect the skin from sun damage, aging, and collagen loss.
The Cactus Fruit is used to make Cactus Water (or Flower).
You can also consume it or apply it topically.
The seeds are used to make cactus oil.
Furthermore, Cactus Oil contains more antioxidants than any other plant.
Is there a difference between Cactus Water and Personality Cactus water ?
Our collection is based on the Prickly Pear Cactus, which is the only cactus with a combination of antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes that protect the skin from sun damage, aging, and collagen loss.
The collection includes not only Prickly Pear Cactus water, but also fruit extracts and seed oil.
This precious oil is extremely hydrating and high in Vitamin E (150% more than Argan Oil! ), unsaturated fatty acids, and super antioxidants than any other plant.
This is one of nature's most potent anti-aging oils for radiant skin.
There has recently been a shift in thinking, and a movement has developed to use all parts of a plant (because they each have unique benefits) so that nothing goes to waste.
We wholeheartedly support this philosophy!
Why is this ingredient especially important for Bangkok or Urban residents?
Environmental factors such as pollution can harm your skin's moisture barrier when you live in a city.
Cactus water (and its oil) contains more electrolytes and antioxidants, which help to hydrate the skin.
The oil is also antibacterial and high in essential fatty acids, which help to retain moisture.
Our Cream and Cleanser contain an anti-pollution agent, which effectively protect the skin from pollution.
Is cactus water environmentally friendly?
Our Prickly Pear Cactus comes from organic and environmentally friendly sustainable farms in Morocco.
At Personality, we strive to create products that are both glam and good for our customers and the environment.
