Beauty from Swiss plants
Swiss plants are a diverse source of valuable active substances for natural cosmetics.
Switzerland is known for its stunning mountains and lakes, but its flora and fauna also have a lot to offer. The range of different altitudes in Switzerland means that the country has an abundant diversity of plants, which are also constantly being discovered for natural cosmetics. Allow us to introduce you to a selection of Swiss plants, flowers and fruits that are carefully selected and processed for BIOKOSMA natural cosmetic products.
Opuntia ficus-indica (AquaCacteen™)
The prickly pear is a succulent originally from Mexico, also known as prickly pear.
Thanks to its high content of water-binding ingredients, the natural active ingredient complex AquaCacteen™ extracted from the prickly pear has excellent moisturizing properties that soothe and calm irritated skin. In addition, the natural anti-pollution complex protects against harmful environmental influences and UV stress. The high-quality elixir is rich in antioxidant ingredients and acts as a free radical scavenger to protect skin cells. As a result, it supports the skin's natural repair process and keeps it firm and radiant.
BIOKOSMA uses exclusively the valuable plant extract from the "leaves" (stem segments) of the ORGANIC prickly pear from controlled organic cultivation.
