Prickly Pear Benefits For Your Skin

    30th of January, 2023

    Regenerating Serum – Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil with Frankincense

    Prickly Pear seed oil is now one of the most sought-after facial oils due to its incredible properties. It contains the highest amount of vitamin E of any other beauty oil and is extremely rich in essential fatty acids including omega 6 and 9, antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and vitamin K.

    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. Have a look at Moya Essentials’ prickly pear seed oil which is sourced from a farm in the Free State, South Africa, who produce some of the most sought-after prickly pear seed oil.


    Prickly Pears

    Prickly pear oil is easily absorbed into the skin and penetrates quickly without leaving any greasy residue.

    Prickly Pear Seed Oil offers the following benefits:

    • Intensely hydrates the skin
    • Suitable for all skin types but works particularly well on dry, mature skin
    • Brightens skin and gets rid of dark spots
    • Reduces wrinkles and adds firmness
    • Highly effective moisturiser
    • Easily absorbed into the skin
    • Does not clog your pores
    • Calms down any inflammation and redness, especially for those prone to rosacea
    • Brightens under-eye circles and minimise spider veins
    • The fatty acid profile of linoleic acid and oleic acid helps moisturize and restore skin elasticity.
    • Its high linoleic acid content helps prevent sebum from hardening and thus prevents blocked pores which would lead to acne and spots.

    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.
