Barie Powder or Poudre de Barie is not just your typical exfoliating beauty product. It's a tiny, mighty army of ground up prickly pear cactus seeds, filled with complex Vitamin E and skin rejuvenating Omega fatty acids and tocopherols, ready to wage war on dead skin cells. Picture it: each coarse granule, armed with a miniature scrubbing brush (not really, but wouldn't that be cute?), banishing dullness and revealing radiant skin underneath while pampering your skin with collagen-boosting richness.

Barie Powder is for radiantly smooth, fresh, and glowing skin. It is a perfect, rich in moisture add-on to a facial masque with Katari Argil (our favorite way to use it) or an exfoliant coupled with a few drops of a carrier oil, like Hoba or decadent Rosehip. Barie powder won't just make your skin feel like a million bucks, it'll make it look like it won the skincare lottery. You know what they say: the proof of the powder is in the glowing! ;)

5 reasons to love Barie Powder

  • amazing exfoliating treatment with carrier oil (Hoba)

  • great add-on (booster) to a facial masque with Argil clay

  • gentle & deeply moisturizing exfoliator

  • helps to smooth and plump-up skin naturally

  • perfect for mature and moisture-deprived skin

Why use Poudre de Barie?

Exfoliation is necessary to get rid of dead skin cells. And what is better when we can use a natural ingredient that also provides a ton of other benefits to plump and boost skin vitality?

Why not use it Barie Powder by itself, if it is so cool? Barie powder 'as is' or mixed with water is very hard to apply to skin. Clay or oil mixed in with it provides the necessary texture. And Barie Powder provides a punch of anti-aging and collagen-boosting properties.

What is Poudre de Barie?

When we make Barie oil, about 50% of oil stays in the seed after cold-pressing. So, we collected the pressed core and made the most decadent exfoliating and moisturizing add-on to our Argil Green Clay masque or a lavish exfoliant when powder gets added to a carrier oil.

So, it is single-ingredient, it is pretty much Barie in powdery, exfoliating form. It does not smell and has texture of coffee grounds when added to the clay masque. It also adds tons of moisture and helps remove those dead skin cells even better.

Worth it!

I recently tried this with the Argil mask and it’s so worth trying out! You barely need any to mix with the Argil so it’s going to last a while. As someone with eczema that was pretty much always there, I’d been so cautious to exfoliate at home.
Couldn’t believe it when I removed the mask and there was zero irritation, only a glow. If you have rosacea or eczema, I really swear by this.
A few months ago I started trying out Katari, and eczma that I was dealing with for years is practically gone now.

I use this powder in combination with Argil and Roseau to create a gentle mask. My face looks so healthy, I love all Katari products I have tried so far!

Martha, thank you so much for your review. This is exactly how we use it. Thank you so much for your support! It means so much! ~ Kate

What the heck is Barie Powder?

Same Ingredient as Barie Oil

The oil concentration in the prickly pear cactus seeds is ~4% and only 1/2 of it becomes oil. The rest remains trapped in the pressed core. We took that core and milled it to create an exfoliating powder.

Wild-Grown & EU-Organic

The seeds come from a wild cacti forest from the hand-picked prickly pear cactus fruit. Then they are cold-pressed using state of the art equipment and under EU Organic standards.

Powerful Antioxidant

Barie Powder has the same incredible minerals and Vitamins as the oil. It nourishes skin with Omega 3-9 and Vitamin E.

Artisan & Scientist Maker

Watch our video above and meet the maker, who loves prickly pear cactus so much, he dedicated his second career to it, in addition to teaching physics to university students.

Tips on using Barie Powder

Use 1-2 a week as gentle exfoliant with Argil green clay or mixed with oil.

Do not overexfoliate or use after peels, dermaplaning or other skin procedures.

Do not use if you have allergic reaction to topical application of Vitamin E (naturally rich in Vit.E).

Exfoliant with Oil

Add a pinch to a few drops of a carrier oil like Hoba Oil. Massage into skin gently for delicate exfoliation or massage more firmly if skin needs a good cleanse. Do not over-exfoliate to avoid skin irritation.

Clay Masque Boost

Use 1-2 a week as gentle exfoliant with Argil green clay. Mix 1 part Argil clay & 1 part of Barie powder with warm water. Apply to slightly wet skin. Steam while taking a shower. Use fingertips to gently massage for extra exfoliation. Rinse (avoid eyes).

Products to use with Barie Powder

By itself Barie Powder is hard to use - it is oily clumpy powder that does not stick to anything but it is a game-changer when you add it to your favorite masque or mix it with an oil. Mix it with Katari Argil green clay masque (1:1) with some water for a lavish collagen-boosting facial or mix with a few drops of carrier oil, like Katari Hoba Oil or Granate Oil for exfoliation and massage to get skin a good cleansing and some blood circulation! You can always use your other favorite carrier oils and experiment and let us know what recipes you came up with! Enjoy!

We know, Barie is addictive!
