Phytofleur™ Cactus

Add to favourites
Cactus grows in Mexico and in the West Indies. It is a fleshy, creeping shrub with cylindrical branching stems. Also called “Queen of the night”, Cereus grandiflorus prevents its delicate flowers from dessication by blooming during the night. Adapted to drastic climatic conditions, it can rebound from dramatic dehydration. Its flowers are exhaling a delicious vanilla-like perfume with pinkish, red or white petals. Young stems & flowers were traditionally used in tropical America in the treatment of cardiac problems and as a diuretic and sedative. The flowers of Cactus grandiflorus contain betacyanins and flavonoids glycosides (Narcissin, cacticin, rutin, hyperoside, kaempferitrin, grandiflorine…) which confer anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, radical scavenging and bactericidal properties. Cactus contains also carbohydrates with moisturising, conditioning and smoothing activities. These actives’ synergies give to Phytofleur Cactus its ideal function as a perfect additive to help the skin rebound from dramatic dehydration, to control skin’s moisture level regardless of climatic conditions and to prolong the youthful appearance of the skin.
