Prickly Pear Face Cream
Our breakthrough ingredient Myoxinol™, extracted from Hibiscus Seeds, acts in a similar way to injectables used in wrinkle treatments, and even reduces deep forehead lines. Prickly Pear, harvested in Sicily, provides Polysaccharides that have been discovered to have potent antioxidant activity and to calm the skin. They also act like Hyaluronic Acid to moisturise the skin. Olive Oil and Rice Fractions, rich in skin-enhancing nutrients, and a Multi-Vitamin Supplement (A, Pro-B5, C & E) provide additional antioxidant activity as they nourish and protect.
Clinically approved for sensitive skin. Also suitable for all skin types, especially mature, dry or dehydrated.

THE MYOXINOL™ EFFECT
See visible wrinkle reduction from our breakthrough Myoxinol™ regime. Alongside each other in clinical trials, the Hibiscus Serum, Prickly Pear Face Cream and Hibiscus Night Cream deliver visible wrinkle reduction that gets more and more noticeable the longer the products are used.
The discovery that Myoxinol™, extracted from Hibiscus Seeds, acts in a similar way to injectables in reducing even deep forehead lines, means that this is a significant new approach to reversing signs of skin ageing.
Myoxinol™ inhibits the mechanical factors responsible for the formation of expression lines on the face, while at the same time activating the cell’s natural defences to prevent oxidative damage. Therefore it can biologically delay the ageing of cells.

Dr. Francesca Ferri
“Through my time spent working with spas, I knew that I wanted to create experiential skincare. I noticed that many natural brands were using ‘essential oils’ to fragrance their products, and these often have unpredictable allergenic effects. The attempts by some natural brands to avoid this issue by being unperfumed didn’t make sense as fragrance is a key component of the spa experience, and is vital in stimulating emotions. So, I teamed up with Dr. Francesca Ferri to create lab-formulated, allergen-screened fragrances, ensuring our products combine outstanding fragrance with outstandingly low allergenic potential.”
