Growing up in Hawaii and Arizona meant I spent a lot of time outdoors. I love the beauty and intrigue of the ocean and the desert. Naturally, I was thrilled when I discovered a new product line that uses ingredients indigenous to Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, my old backyard!
Sia Botanics Prickly Pear Collection, uses the cactus’ antioxidants to fight free radical damage and detoxify the skin. I never imagined that one day Prickly Pear would be touted as the next pomegranate or acai nature cure. Its juice and seed oil contains high levels of betalains, a class of super-antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and speed cellular turnover. The products help fight the good fight against aging without the help of sulfates or skin-irritating fragrances.
The packaging is beautiful and the company is passionate about skin care. The Prickly Pear collection, contains five products for just $100 but there is a variety of products to meet all skincare needs. www.siabotanics.com
