Our popular Cactus Shower Gel is now available in the bulk pack for refilling! The bulk pack is great because it saves a lot of plastic. If you already have our Cactus Shower Gel in the small format, you can easily refill the bottle with it. It's easy with the pump that comes with it. Plus, the 5 liter canister lasts a small eternity! Of course, you can also share it with friends or family. Sustainability is that simple.
Our Refresher Shower Gel has a pleasant scent and is 100% natural, just like the surfactants it contains. They don't foam as much but still ensure clean skin. Due to its natural ingredients and gentle composition, you can use it every day without any problems, unlike other shower gels. Your skin is gently freed from dirt and nourished with prickly pear seed oil and argan oil while showering.
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 or cold. In the process, we came across the prickly pear. The prickly pear not only has wonderful properties for skincare but is also very sustainable. It grows under the most challenging conditions and needs very little water. To make our products even more sustainable, we offer some of our products as bulk refills. This way we can save a lot of plastic together.
I clean your skin gently and naturally. Due to my high-quality ingredients, your skin is supplied with a lot of moisture already while showering.
Prickly pear seed oil & cactus flower 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 phytonutrients contained in the oil, an antioxidant effect is created that can protect your skin from premature ageing.
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.
For a refreshing shower experience, only a small amount of me is needed. Take one or two pumps and lather me lightly in your palms. Massage me thoroughly all over your body to unleash my full cleansing power. Additionally, because of my natural ingredients, you can easily use me every day.

The Perfect Routine
Step 1: Refresher Shower Gel or Relaxing Shower Foam
Cleanse your body thoroughly with our refreshing Refresher Shower Gel or relaxing Relaxing Shower Foam. The natural surfactants cleanse your skin thoroughly without drying it out. Moreover, the nourishing oils of the prickly pear and argan tree soften your skin while you shower.
Step 2: Cherishing Body Lotion or Moisturizer Body Cream
Treat your skin with our Cherishing Body Lotion or our more intensive Moisturizer Body Cream. Generally, after a shower or bath, your pores are open. At this moment, the valuable care substances can penetrate your skin particularly well and unfold their effect.
Step 3: Revitalizing Body Splash
For an additional kick of freshness, you can then spray our Revitalizing Body Splash onto your skin. It nourishes your skin with valuable oils and is a real treat, especially in summer. If you tend to have oily skin, our Body Splash can also substitute for body lotion or cream.
