This ultra-refined botanical elixir is derived from the cactus Opuntia Ficus-Indica, also known as prickly pear or Indian Fig. Like other cactuses, Opuntia has adapted to extreme environmental conditions and solar radiation by the phyto-protective qualities of flavonoids that trap detrimental free radicals generated by ultra violet light. In addition to flavonoids, Opuntia also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium. It is also a rich source of pisidic acid, which prevents the formation of damaging free radicals during UV exposure.

The use of Opuntia Ficus-Indica as a medicine dates back to the Aztecs (900-1521 AD) who revered it as a sacred plant. The Aztecs extracted the cactus sap from Opuntia Ficus-Indica and used it to make an ointment to treat burns.
