UV rays negatively affect your skin day after day and in any weather. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, a day cream with a sun protection factor is a must. With our Cactus Protector Cream, your skin will be perfectly protected from the sun. And it does so with 100% natural, mineral sun protection. The day cream has a light texture, is quickly absorbed and leaves no white film. Thus, you can easily use it over another cream.
Furthermore, Prickly pear seed oil and argan oil provide your skin with long-lasting moisture and have an antioxidant effect. Grapefruit and prickly pear flower extracts provide elasticity and plump skin.
The story behind the product
We believe that nature provides the best active ingredients for your skin. That's why our products are 100% natural. We are constantly searching for the best active ingredients for individual skin needs. With our cleaning and care products of the Cactus series, our goal was to create suitable products for almost every skin type and protect your skin from premature ageing and external influences such as sun rays. In doing so, we came across the prickly pear. The prickly pear not only has wonderful properties for skincare but is also very sustainable. It grows in the most challenging conditions and needs very little water. This allows us to combine our goal of optimal natural skincare with a high level of sustainability.
I protect your skin from harmful UV rays, moisturize it and make it velvety soft.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil & Cactus Floral Water
We are both extracted from the prickly pear cactus and its flowers. We keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. We also help your skin better retain its own moisture. With the many vitamins and botanicals contained in the oil, an antioxidant effect is created that can prevent your skin from premature wrinkles.
Obtained from the seeds of grapefruit, I make your skin velvety and soft. I also have an inhibitory effect on bacteria and thus help against blemished skin.
I contain a lot of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin E. Thus, I act as a moisturizer even for very dehydrated skin and protect your skin from harmful environmental influences.
Apply me to your face in the morning after cleansing. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you can repeat the application more often during the day to maintain sun protection. If you're out in the sun a lot, it makes sense to wear me as a top layer, as that's the only way I can get my full effect.

Why is the daily sun protection factor so crucial for the skin?
It has been proven that UV radiation contributes to skin ageing and can cause skin diseases. Therefore, it is vital to protect the skin on a day to day basis. This will help your skin stay fresh and healthy for longer.
What UV rays does SPF15 Face Cream protect against?
Titanium dioxide protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays. About 90% of the UV rays that hit your skin are UVA rays. They are long-wave rays that penetrate deep into the skin. They are reflected by the filter particles of the mineral filter and thus cannot penetrate the skin. The same applies to the more short-wave UVB rays.
Why can't I use SPF15 Face Cream in the evening?
The filter particles lie on your skin and are not absorbed. At night, however, you must let your skin breathe, which is why we recommend cleansing your skin intensively and using one of our 24H creams. If you apply a serum underneath or a mask before going to bed, you have lovely intensive care for your skin during your rest phase.

The Perfect Routine
Step 1: Cleansing
Correct cleansing is the first step to beautiful skin! With our Cleansing Foam, you'll make your skin glow. The contained prickly pear flower water and grapefruit extract provide a lot of moisture and ensure elastic skin. If you tend to have dry skin, it's usually enough to cleanse your face with water only in the morning. However, it is essential to clean your skin from makeup and the day's dirt and dust in the evening. Moreover, if you tend to have oily skin, cleansing in the morning and evening is a good idea.
Step 2: Intensive cleansing
Apply our Face Tonic directly after cleansing. It cleanses your skin even more intensively, refreshes and clarifies your complexion. Furthermore, if you tend to have blemished skin, a face tonic is optimal.
Step 3: Care
After cleansing, the skin needs care, preferably in the form of moisture. This is where the Cactus Allrounder 24 H Cream comes into play. Take 1 to 2 pumps and gently massage onto your face, neck and décolleté.
Step 4: Eye Care
The last step is to apply our Youngstar Eye Cream. The eye area usually needs an extra boost of care, as it is much thinner than the rest of the facial skin. The contained Q10 has a decongestant effect and makes your eyes sparkle. Moreover, you can use the eye cream in the morning and in the evening.
Step 5: Lip care
Ever heard that lip balms are addictive? Not ours! Because it contains only natural ingredients and makes your lips velvety soft. Apply it in the morning and in the evening as the last step of your care routine. Why is lip care so important? The skin on your lips is the least oily of the entire body and therefore cannot moisturize itself well. Even more so, it's very thin and reacts more quickly to sun or cold.
