Nature’s answer to hyaluronic acid


Weleda has been creating 100 per cent natural and authentic fragrances for over 100 years.

Great consideration is given when creating specific fragrances for each of their products.

Natural scents from essential oils not only have physical effects but, depending on the amount used, can have biochemical and psychological effects too: the body’s olfactory receptors aren’t just found in the nose but in the skin as well.

Featuring four hydrating heroes for the face and eyes Weleda’s new Prickly Pear Cactus Range is nature’s answer to hyaluronic acid.

Activating your skin’s natural ability to retain and balance moisture for all-day hydration, the formulations have been clinically proven to increase hydration levels and prevent transepidermal water loss for up to 24 hours, helping your skin to maintain a healthy barrier.

Inspired by succulents like Prickly Pear Cactus and Aloe Vera, which withstand increasing temperatures and decreasing water supplies, the Weleda Prickly Pear Cactus Hydrating Facial Care range is proven to deeply hydrate skin and provide a dewy, fresh complexion, all day long.

With Weleda’s new products your skin will be nourished, refreshed and moisturised for up to 24 hours while a refreshing blend of essential oils such as palmarosa, green mandarin and peppermint provide an uplifting shower-fresh scent.

For the Prickly Pear Cactus range, Weleda’s in-house perfumers developed a subtle fragrance combining essential oils of green mandarin, palmarosa and peppermint to give an uplifting and refreshing experience to boost mood and benefit the skin.

Why prickly pear cactus?

Despite its dry looking exterior, this desert plant is bursting with moisture, enabling it to thrive and blossom in the driest of climates, withstanding increasing temperatures and decreasing water supplies.

Prickly pear cactus stores water in its broad, paddle-shaped lobes called cladodes. The juicy, moisture-rich mucilage inside allows the plant to maintain its balance even in an extreme climate.

This mucilage is like a plant version of our skin’s natural hyaluronic acid reserves, containing polysaccharides (sugars) that attract and retain moisture.

Weleda’s 100 per cent natural extract of organic prickly pear cactus is sustainably sourced to UEBT (Union for Ethical Bio Trade) standards from Jalisco in Mexico.
