Prickly Pear Seeds Oil, 100% Pure and Organic, 30ml
Opuntia Ficus Indica is a member of the cactus family and is commonly known as Prickly Pear (also known as Barbary Fig).
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the most expensive beauty oils in the world. Its production requires a labor intensive and time consuming (up to four days) process manually handled by Moroccan women at cooperatives. The Prickly Pear seeds are separated from the pulp and are then dried before being cold pressed. Because each seed contains only 5% of oil, up to 60 lbs. of seeds (and a half a ton of fruits) are required to yield about 34 oz. of oil.
Composition & Benefits

This oil contains more Tocopherol than any other oil available in the beauty care market (almost 150% more Tocopherol than Argan oil). “Tocopherols are molecules with strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties.
