    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:

    • 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
    • Brighten under-eye circles and minimise spider veins
    • The fatty acid profile of linoleic acid and oleic acid replenish lost lipids within the skin, which 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 high linoleic acid content, roughly 62%, ensures that even the most dehydrated skin is soothed.

    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.

    How to use: Use a couple of drops of serum after cleansing your face. Spread them gently over your skin paying attention to problem areas. Once absorbed, you can apply your moisturiser. Can be used in the morning & evening.

    Best serum

    With winter approaching for me this is must have! The benefits of prickly pear oil are numerous but the best is hydrating your skin, adding frankincense is genius. After just 2 days of use I saw immediate results, smoother softer skin. No breakouts as this oil absorbs quickly with no oil residue left on your skin. If I can recommend one product it’s this serum!
