Nopal Cactus, found in Cyto-luxe Light Moisture, is used to fight inflammation, treat wounds, protect cellular DNA and increase skin’s tolerance. The stem cell from this plant is rich in antioxidants, including Vitamin C, polyphenols and catechins. The free radical scavenging properties have been demonstrated by in vitro tests. Applied topically, it will hydrate, help even tone, smooth wrinkles and soothe the skin.
Nopal Cactus minimizes visible wrinkles and helps limit environmental damage from pollution. It has a brightening effect, improving skin’s radiance, and contributes to skin’s strength, firmness and elasticity
Testing was conducted on 20 women, ages 47 to 66 years old, with aging concerns over the course of 28 days on the anti-wrinkle effect of Nopal Cactus Stem Cell. At the end of the study 85% of women declared their wrinkles seemed to have decreased and 81% said their hyperpigmentation seemed reduced as well. There was a 31% decrease in the total surface area of wrinkles and a 21% decrease in the number of wrinkles on the face.
Phyto-Active Light Moisture, a weightless, silky moisturizer, balances skin and supports skin's natural defense with plant actives, including Nopal Cactus Stem Cell and BioRetinol (Revinage). BioRetinol, an extract from a flowering plant of the Aster family, simulates retinoid action, mimicking the effects of retinol, helping improve skin's elasticity and tone without the irritation. In addition, Cyto-luxe Light Moisture contains and ingredient derived from Sesame Seeds called Linefill™. It has a filling and plumping effect to aid in the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This lightweight moisturizer also includes Dermatein® HyA Mini, a smaller version of Hyaluron Acid, an effective hydrator. Since the molecular size is smaller, it can penetrate deeper into the skin. Paired with Coconut Water, another lightweight hydrator, skin is left moisturized and radiant. This hydrator can also be found in Phyto-Active Toning Mist and Daily Hydration+.
