Extracted by cold press from prickly pear seeds, this rare and most precious oil is as close as it gets to liquid gold. It is rich in hydrating and nourishing antioxidants and essential fatty acids, including omega 6 and 9 and vitamin K. Prickly Pear Seed 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.
Its natural linoleic acid content is effective at plumping up and firming the skin and Vitamin K minimises scars and helps brighten under the eye circles, making prickly pear an excellent anti-ageing agent.
It takes a whopping 1 ton of prickly pear fruits to produce just 1 litre of oil. Although it is costly, prickly pear is an incredibly sustainable crop.
