The anti-pollution cosmetic ingredient

Preparami® ER is a protective and repairing cosmetic ingredient from Alban Muller’s Research line of tested actives.

This cosmetic ingredient, 100% natural without preservatives, contains a unique Prickly Pear extract stabilized in jojoba oil providing a sensorial feeling, protection against oxidation and soothing properties.

Originally from Mexico, the prickly pear, also called nopal, is a shrubby cactus that grows in warm, dry and rocky environments thanks to its resistant metabolism. Over time, this perennial plant has spread throughout America, the Mediterranean basin, Africa, India and Australia.

The substance extracted from the stems is traditionally used as a poultice to soothe skin inflammations and insect bites.
