Huxley is a contemporary skincare brand from South Korea. Their formulations respect the skin barrier with minimalist, plant-derived ingredients. The key ingredient found in all Huxley products is Sahara Prickly Pear Seed Oil, a desert cactus and real wonder of nature. It contains unique phytochemicals that provide intensive moisturisation due to its excellent ability to retain water. It also supports skin barrier protection against environmental aggressors due to a high concentration of Vitamin E (Tocopherol), a potent antioxidant. With a 61% Linoleic acid content, Sahara Prickly Pear Seed Oil ensures a far lighter, fast-absorbing texture with a greater moisturising effect than other African oils, such as Argan oil.
It takes 1 million seeds and 36 hours of hand-labour to extract just 1 litre of this precious oil. Sahara Prickly Pear Seed Oil has been certified as a safe organic ingredient by Eco-Cert. Huxley products are expertly crafted with elegant and sophisticated formulations that are a pleasure to use. They are manufactured at a cutting-edge facility in South Korea and preserved within high-quality packaging.
Huxley is taking the beauty world by storm having increased its presence in global retail outlets by more than 200% in 2018 from the previous year. This includes into key market retailers such as Bloomingdales (US), Nordstrom (US), Fenwick (UK) and Harvey Nichols (UK). Huxley products have been awarded extensively by Allure, Nylon.com and GQ to name a few. It was also the beauty sponsor for the BCBG MAX AZRIA in New York Fashion Week in 2018.
