What is Prickly Pear Oil

Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Optunia Ficus Indica) is the market-leading product for skin hydration and care, and is an absolutely essential product for any beauty regime.

The cold-pressed extract, taken from the seeds of the Prickly Pear fruits of Morocco, is extremely light and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it feeling supple, soft and rejuvenated without leaving a greasy residue.

What makes Prickly Pear Seed Oil so unique?

Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains 150% more Vitamin E than any other oil on the market (including our Argan Oil).

It has the highest percentage of unsaturated fatty acids (80%), including very high levels of Linoleic Acid (60%), a fatty acid that is vital for healthy skin cell production.

Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains a very high concentration of Vitamin K which helps lighten dark spots on the skin, and dark circles under the eyes.

High concentrations of Omega Oils 6 and 9 intensify moisturising qualities.

  • The oil reduces wrinkles and helps eliminate circles and darkness under the eyes.
  • It is excellent for very dry skin and cracked lips.
  • It can reduce redness and soreness after sunbathing.
  • The antioxidant level in the oil slows down the ageing process and helps the fight against free radicals.
  • It is very light and easily absorbed into the skin so it is extremely beneficial in the fight against acne and similar skin problems.
