What it is
A nourishing cream that soothes redness and keeps your skin well moisturized, especially in winter.
A silky and light texture for the Prickly Pear and Manna Cream, a non-greasy moisturizer that has a lovely fresh, fruity smell to it and it absorbs quickly into your skin.
"The moisturizer hydrated my dry overtired skin leaving a radiant glow that didn't go unnoticed during the fast pace realm of the fantastic world of fashion" - Jeanie Walsh from Bound to Fashion.
The combination of mucilage and natural polysaccharides from the Prickly Pear pads with sugars from the pure Manna soothes, firms and cicatrizes the skin and together with Na-PCA and Hyaluronic acid ensures your skin is constantly moisturized. Comforts very sensitive skin and does not leave oily skin greasy.
"This cream has definitely accelerated the healing process of some scratches" - Sharon Wu from Stylelullaby.
For combination, normal and dry skin types.
Ideal under foundation because it does not flake and the skin underneath stays smooth.
The airless bottle prevents oxidation of the product.
The colour of the cream comes from the natural yellow of Rutin.
How to use
After cleansing with our Butter Makeup Remover and using toner (and a serum), moisturize correctly by patting the cream into the skin. Use morning and evening.
-Prickly Pear pad juice: rich in olygo-elements and enzymes, it is contained in the high percentage in this formula and provides anti-inflammatory effects, hydration and antioxidants that soothe and soften your skin.
-Manna: Produced only in one small area of Sicily, this whitish sap has excellent moisturizing and soothing properties, and it has been found to comfort sensitive skin. - Na-PCA and Hyaluronic acid: these are hydrating and humectant ingredients that are naturally found in young healthy skin. They renew the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) of your skin and balance the natural surface PH of the skin.
-Avocado Oil, Olive Oil Unsaponifiables, Mango and Shea Butter, Rutin and Allantoin: their soothing properties improve the protective, anti-irritant and regenerating action of this cream.

Prickly Pear pads are harvested near Mount Etna and are cleaned and manually cut in the laboratory, in order to extract the pulp. This is then worked to remove the fibrous part which becomes a cosmetic ingredient.
Manna is a sugar-rich sap that flows from wounds in the trunks of ash trees, and in recent years it has been recognized by Slow Food.
There are now fewer areas in Sicily where it is produced; only the two small villages of Castelbuono and Pollina, in the province of Palermo, where they still use the ancient techniques and traditions related to the cultivation of this special substance. The harvest period is greatly dependent on weather conditions and temperature, so production lasts from June to September climate permitting. When harvesters cut the bark of the trunks, a pale blue, bitter substance oozes out and thanks to the warm summer air forms “stalactites” of Manna, white and sweet. Only the Manna which does not touch the trunk is considered pure, instead the Manna that does not solidify immediately is scraped out or drops onto the ground where it is collected in a large prickly pear leaf.
Manna has many properties, and therapeutic virtues. It is a mild laxative which does not cause inflammation or damage the intestines; helps regulate the intestine and keeps the digestive tract clean; it also keeps the respiratory system healthy because it helps to calm coughs. It is a natural sweetener and low on the glycemic index, so it does not raise blood glucose levels.
As regards its use in cosmetics, it is an amazing moisturizer and emollient that comforts sensitive skin. It has anti aging and wound healing properties.
