Prickly pear seed oil is derived from a cactus also known as nopal, tuna, Indian fig, Indian pear, mission cactus, and barberry pear. Native Americans highly regarded prickly pear for its diuretic and anti-inflammatory benefits.
The oil is exceptionally emollient with exceptional skin benefits. It works to impart a vivacious complexion to the skin and is an ideal anti-aging oil. It is rife with Vitamin E and works to restore suppleness to damaged and dry skin. It also works as an astringent by tightening pores, creating a more youthful appearance. The oil is easily absorbed within minutes of application.
To cold press the oil is extremely labor intensive as one k/g of cold pressed prickly pear seed oil merits over thirty hours of labor and nearly one million seeds.
Prickly pear seed oil (cactus seed oil) is an exotic and therapeutic addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, skin, and hair care.
