A vegetal story

Foreseen Shield Nopal, limiting ageing caused by solar rays



Born in the centre of Mexico, that cactus with an original shape caracterized by its organization with cladodes (or raquettes) has been introduced in the Old World in the 16th century where it specially grew in the Mediterranean area. Nowadays it is cultivated for its fruits, the Barbarie figs and the young edible cladodes (called nopalitos) and their numerous culinary and medicine uses, discovered by Meso- American people since the 16th century. Indeed, nopal would be healing, anti-oxidating (thanks to the vitamin E it contains), and, according to some studies, it would help to decrease glucose and lipids in blood. It is designed on the Mexican flag since the independance of Mexico.


Because skin loses little by little its density when ageing, it is necessary to keep the production of skin fibers at a good level. For a skin firmer, more elastic, more resistant and with less wrinkles.

How it works ?

Foreseen Shield Nopal limits the numerous bad mechanisms induced by UV rays, which damage and make skin old quicker, at levels of demis (UVA) and epidermis (UVB).

First, it protects skin cells in their environment by limiting the creation of free radicals that desorganize their functions, but also till their DNA by limiting their destruction. Then it decreases the anarchical production of melanine caused by UV, and it increases the tolerance of skin, by limiting the production of cytokins produced by aggressed epidermis cells.


Thanks to those actions, epidermis cells keep on regenerating tissues and keep on protecting skin system longer.
