Prickly pear or Barbary fig seed oil contains the highest levels of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids of any vegetable/fruit oil. Hailing from North Africa, this cold-pressed oil is made from the seeds of the Opuntia ficus-indica cactus. A readily absorbed oil with a silken smooth feel, prickly pear seed oil is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps prevent premature wrinkle formation, lessens redness, lightens and brightens the skin and is profoundly moisturizing. Non-comedogenic, this oil is also high in phytosterols, compounds that assist in collagen production.
These precious droplets of oil are concentrated yet light. Apply one pump to the face and neck in the morning or night. For more intensive moisturizing, follow-up with one of our nourishing face creams.
