The cactus and the prickly pear are actually derived from the same plant; the prickly pear refers to the fruit of the plant, while the nopal is the ‘pads’ of the cactus. Cactus do an exceptional job of surviving these types of harsh conditions. Think about it—if cactus can survive the harsh desert climate, just imagine the hydration powers they can bring to your skin. It may seem confusing to think of a plant that lives in such a dry environment can help hydrate your skin, but this is the best occlusive—aka something that prevents water loss—for your skin.
