CHIPPING CAMPDEN, ENGLAND, 5th January 2023 — VILASA. Ltd. (, the specialist distributor of luxury skincare for the Spa, Hotel, and Retail industry, today announced the launch of marocMaroc’s new Cactéa retail and treatment range.

VILASA.’s founder Lynne Leon announces that the World’s most luxurious spa and hammam brand marocMaroc has launched a new well-ageing skincare range with three exclusive facial protocols.

The new rituals provide holistic wellbeing with immediate results. Precise and dynamic techniques combined with sculpting and facial gym will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sculpt the contours of the face and reveal the radiance of the complexion.

Moroccan Prickly Pear oil is the star ingredient in the Cactéa range and is one of the world's most effective natural youth ingredients. The perfectly preserved components naturally make it an unbeatable botanical shield against premature ageing. A high concentration of vitamins E, A, C and Omega 6 rejuvenates the skin, boosts collagen production and is full of antioxidants. 

Prickly pear oil is the fruit of ancestral work that requires time and patience. Eight hundred kilos of fresh fruit gradually, drop by drop, produce one precious litre of oil. The skin, pulp and seeds are separated, and the seeds are then left to dry in the sun. Once thoroughly dry, they are cold-pressed to extract the oil. Quality is ensured by working directly with the harvesters.

Many women in Morocco rely on this work as their only source of income. marocMaroc works closely with its partners to ensure good working conditions and pay, allowing them to live independently.

“We are extremely excited to announce the launch of marocMaroc’s latest skincare range to the UK & Irish markets. The Cactéa range is the perfect blend of natural and effective ingredients combined with a fresh Moroccan signature fragrance. A great addition to the brand collection.

The result driven range uses Moroccan prickly pear oil, renowned for its anti-ageing qualities. Used by Moroccans for hundreds of years, this incredible oil provides the skin with powerful active ingredients to fight free radicals, protect the skin's natural barrier and boost collagen production.

The introduction of the new facial range and treatments further showcases how well-rounded the brand is for those looking to elevate their guest experience and wellbeing offering. 

The facials have launched to rave reviews in some of the world’s finest hotel spas, including The Royal Mansour and Fairmont Geneva. Akasha Spa at Hotel Cafe Royal will exclusively launch the Cactéa treatments in the UK. Retail products available to purchase from Harrods and online at We’re looking forward to working with our partners to offer guests this enhanced feeling of wellbeing to their treatment offering.”
