Ingredient Spotlight: Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil
Opuntia ficus-indica seed oil
It looks strange, it’s got a funny name, but the oil from this plant is one of the most highly prized ingredients in skincare. And for good reason.
The cold pressed oil from the Prickly Pear plant (also known as Barbary Fig) provides a huge burst of moisture to the skin. It has a high content of omega and fatty acids which help to nourish, smooth and firm skin as well as tighten pores. It’s known to be anti-inflammatory, soothing and calms redness. The high levels of vitamin e also help combat free radicals.
Each seed is handpicked from the pulp of the 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 rare oils on the planet.
We use a generous dose of organic prickly pear seed oil in both our Revive and Clarity organic face oils. Every drop of these beautiful oils is precious. And along with the rest of our products, a little goes a long way to help repair, protect and rejuvenate skin naturally.
