Prickly Pear Seed Oil is the most amazing of face oils.
'Put it on at night and you'll wake up looking as if you've been to a spa by the sea, slept 10 hours a night and been off Twitter for a month,” Nigella Lawson wrote in the Sunday Times. She went on to mention the product does more than moisturise, it also heals her skin and makes it feel more elastic.
What Nigella is describing is the work of a super antioxidant group called ‘Betalains.’ Betalains are super powerful antioxidants that protect skin from free radical damage. Goji and Acai berries are known for their health benefits thanks to Betalains, but Prickly Pear seed oil has an even higher concentration of these anti-aging powerhouses.
A 'Miracle' Oil, it's rich in essential fatty acids, contains a much higher concentration of vitamin E (around 150 times) than our other Moroccan favorite, Argan Oil and is also loaded up with vitamin K.
Why is it so good?
- Rapidly absorbent and non greasy.
- Helps Diminish Hyperpigmentation
- Provides durable skin firmness, elasticity & vibrance
- Protects the skin from free radical damage resulting from exposure to harsh weather conditions, pollution or chemical toxins
- Helps strengthen capillaries, reduce dark circles under the eyes and spider veins.
- Firms & Brightens skin tone
- Great for repairing cracked heels
It's especially beneficial for balancing oilier, more congestion-prone skin types due to the high linoleic acid content.
Prickly Pear Seed oil is one of the most expensive oils on the market because it is so difficult and time-consuming to produce.
It takes about 1 million seeds to produce 1 litre of Prickly Pear Seed Oil.
The seeds are extracted from the fruits by hand, and then cold pressed, preserving all of the nutrients. This highly time-consuming and tedious task is undertaken by indigenous Berber women working in cooperatives in Morocco.
A cheaper version of oil is produced by macerating extracts of the fruit flowers.
Also known as Barbary fig seed oil or Indian fig seed oil, it grows wild in the South of Morocco and other arid and semi-arid regions of the globe.
This oil on its own has the aroma of fresh cut hay.
We've added the amazing Helichrysum essential oil to take it to the next level in skin pampering. It brings a fresh, herbaceous, sweet and earthy perfume to the oil and its skin regenerative properties are profound.
Known as Immortelle (or the Everlasting flower) it's renowned for its ability to help combat wrinkles, fine lines, age & liver spots, assist in moisture retention, and limit dehydration.
It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and profound scar-healing properties.
