OPUNTIA is a unisex skincare oil company inspired whilst lying under the Grecian sun on a wild beach on Mykonos. The founding couple, Kassandra Lefakinis and Achilles Kyrtsiscan, can testify, dreams do come true, a life-changing moment, an epiphany. OPUNTIA Luxury Oils capture the raw essence of the Mediterranean. The botanics of nature from cold-pressed organic, virgin Opuntia (Prickly Pear) oil infused with the aromatherapeutic benefits of Geranium Bourbon, Neroli, and Spanish Sage. Opuntia Oil is serious nourishment harnessed from nature, not only for your sun goers out there but great to combat dull urban stressed skin and to infuse your life with the scents of far-flung places.
Since a child, Kassandra had tuned her sense of smell to hone in on the origins of perfumes, candles, incense, herbs and spices. She established a reference of natural scents that evoked mood changes, which helped kindle memories and those that ushered a feeling of mindful escapism.
All made in Athens, Opuntia natural oil remedies are super absorbent, hydrating, anti-inflammatory, nourishing and illuminating, derived from the wild Prickly Pear Cactus. An indigenous plant that grows in abundance in the Mediterranean basin is identified by their broad, flat, branching pads and are often called nopal cactus or paddle cactus.
'We believe in being kind to the planet, animals, others and ourselves; this is why our products are organic and vegan, made to minimize our carbon footprint while improving our role as conscientious consumers and citizens.'
With each purchased bottle of oil, Opuntia plants one tree, working with the One Tree Planted – an organization committed to reforestation.
A natural way to feed your skin, support local communities and help make more dreams come true. Feel good.
