Hydrolat - Prickly Pear

£6.99 £9.99


An organic hydrolate from the fruit of the Prickly Pear with a fresh, herbal/fruity fragrance.

Hydrolate, otherwise known as fruit water, is obtained by using water vapour to extract the rich minerals and vitamins from the prickly pear fruit – which distinguishes it from other hydrolates, since the vast majority are obtained from flowers or herbal plants. As a result, it is extremely rich in substances found abundantly in fruit, including vitamins and mineral salts. The scent of the hydrolate is very fresh and pleasant.

Plants growing in difficult conditions often have a lot of potential in cosmetic applications – just think of aloe vera, vines, or lichens from subarctic regions. This is absolutely the case with the prickly pear – it provides very valuable raw materials as a fruit hydrolate, as a maceration of the flowers, or as prickly pear oil (which we also offer!). They provide the skin with valuable substances and significantly improve its condition.

Prickly pear hydrolate firms and nourishes the skin, and increases elasticity. It has anti-aging and regenerative effects and helps skin retain the correct pH.
