Prickly pear seed oil is extracted from the fruit of the prickly pear cactus (Opuntia Ficus Indica). The oil is made by cold pressing the seeds of the fruit.
Prickly pear oil contains the highest amount of vitamin E of any other beauty oil on the market. In fact it contains 150% more vitamin E than argan oil. This oil is also extremely rich in essential fatty acids including omega 6 and 9, antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and vitamin K.
Prickly pear seed oil has a high content of essential fatty acids which help calm down any inflammation and redness especially for those prone to rosacea. The oil is easily absorbed into skin and penetrates quickly without leaving any greasy residue.
The oil is commonly used for skin treatments – offering the following benefits:
The addition of frankincense, known for its ability to beautify and rejuvenate skin, helps to reduce the appearance of sunspots and age spots. Neroli essential oil has also been shown to slow down aging and significantly reduce wrinkles and adds a beautiful fragrance.
