Our prickly pear oil contains pure, 100% organic Barbary Fig seed oil, a potent antioxidant, a rich source of skin nutrients and an invaluable resource for those who like to keep their complexions positively glowing with health.
The oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the barbary fig and it's a wonderfully effective way of counteracting wrinkles, dark patches beneath the eyes and the damaging effects of UV light. Prickly pear oil is light, easy to apply and a great way to enjoy firmer, younger-looking skin.
The best way of appreciating the benefits of this nourishing, age-defying oil is to consider its constituent parts. Organic, cold-pressed prickly pear oil is an outstanding source of vitamin E and contains vitamin K, amino acids and linoleic acid (polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid).
As a result of this complex natural concoction, which is high in antioxidants, prickly pear oil can have an immediate, positive and noticeable effect. The vitamins help to rejuvenate the complexion - promoting healing and the re-growth of healthy skin cells - whilst the amino acids and omega oils help to hydrate and 'plump' the skin, thereby fighting the effects of drying and wrinkles. Dark circles beneath the eyes are reduced and the skin is left soft, toned and well defended against the effects of the sun.
Prickly pear oil is also a wonderful secret weapon against acne, which is associated with a deficiency of omega 6 in the skin. By replacing this polyunsaturated fatty acid, prickly pear oil can produce a swift and impressive improvement in the appearance, health and softness of the skin.
This oil can be used on the face, body, hair and nails.
