Opuntia Discovery

Yesterday the team LE PURE went to discover the Opuntia cacti, one of the plant we use to create our organic products. Marie and I decided to go to a beautiful area with wild growing cactus. It’s really amazing to see such an exotic landscape in the very heart of Barcelona.

Marie gave us a short private lecture on the Opuntia cacti (the Latin name of the Prickly pear cactus) and its powerful health benefits: its adaptogenic properties are key to the stabilization of our physiological processes and to the decrease of cellular sensitivity to exogenous agents, such as stress and UV radiations.

She explained why she chose the extracts of this plant to create the innovative formulas of LE PURE products: in fact, the fruit and the leaves of the cactus are rich in folic acid, B vitamins, antioxidants, flavonoids and active ingredients, which have the power to balance and regenerate the skin. In this way, you help your skin stay young and radiant. Plants are our real allies. A day in the nature is a day spent learning its wise beauty secrets.

A special thanks to our dear videographer Leda who took beautiful pictures and recorded a video about the story how we met and decided to start LE PURE. We hope we will be able to show you the video soon. Stay tuned for more news!
