Not only is this oil a winner in the natural Anti-Ageing skin care league but everyone can benefit from it no matter what age you are... Let’s get cracking then!
What is Prickly Pear Seed Oil?
This oil comes from the Prickly Pear Cactus which has also been called “the miracle plant” for its ability to survive long periods of draught and still produce healthy fruits. It has also been long used by European women as a potent antioxidant beauty oil and is one of the most expensive beauty oils in the world. Prickly Pear Seed Oil production requires a manual labour intensive and time consuming (up to four days) process, it contains the most Vitamin E of any beauty oil on the market (150 % more than Argan Oil), and the highest percentage of unsaturated fatty acids (88 %) – making it an incredibly powerful oil for skin health!
What Can Prickly Seed Oil Do For Your Skin?
