Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil – Guiltless Skin
  
Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil

Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil

100% pure and undiluted organic prickly pear seed oil. 

One of the most highly prized ingredients in skincare - and for good reason. With large amounts of antioxidants including polyphenols and phytosterols, it provides strong protection from free radicals and environmental stressors. Prickly pear seed oil is a powerful emollient and very effective at preventing moisture loss. It's also very soothing, calming redness and irritation. 

Protecting our skin with such a powerful natural ingredient helps to prevent premature skin cell ageing and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Prickly pear seed oil should be a staple for all skin types as we're all subjected to environmental pollutants in our daily lives.

Highly effective and very fast-absorbing with no greasy residue. No essential oils or fragrance added.

Every drop of this beautiful cold-pressed oil is precious. Each seed is handpicked from the pulp of the prickly pear plant, and only 5% of oil can be extracted from the seeds. This meticulous extraction method makes prickly pear seed oil one of the most expensive and rarest oils on the planet.

We love prickly pear seed oil so much that we've included it in three of our products: Timeless Daily Moisture, Revive Organic Face Oil and Clarity Organic Face Oil

Opuntia ficus-indica seed oil

100% certified organic. 100% natural. 

Country of origin: Morocco

30ml glass bottle with pipette.

How much should I use?

As with all our oils, a little goes a very long way. This is particularly true for prickly pear seed oil. Massage a small drop or two onto your face after applying serum and moisturiser.

For maximum impact, you can also mix it with other products like our Organic Rosehip Oil. Using the pipette, add a drop of each oil into the palm of your hand before applying to face.

Note that these face oils already contain generous amounts of prickly pear seed oil so you don't need to add more: Revive Organic Face Oil and Clarity Organic Face Oil

What is it made from?

Our prickly pear seed oil is obtained by cold-pressing the seeds from the pulp of the prickly pear plant, grown organically in Morocco.

Completely unadulterated and 100% pure - we don’t add any essential oils, preservatives or carrier oils to our prickly pear seed oil, making it a very high-quality oil.  

What does it smell like?

A very light hay-like scent that quickly dissipates when applied to the skin. 

How should I store it? When does it expire?

Always store your oils out of direct sunlight. You can also keep it in the fridge. Remember to tightly close the bottle after every use. Prickly pear seed oil has a long shelf life when unopened, but it's best used up within six months of opening. Our current batch has a best before date of December 2020.

Biodegradable raw materials and plant-based ingredients are at the core of our formulating values. We use ingredients that have been independently verified as organic, vegan and cruelty-free. No Compromises.
