Prickly Pear, or Barbary Fig Seed, Oil is the unsung hero of the beauty world. Having twice the vitamin E content of argan oil, along with abundant antioxidants and essential fatty acids, Barbary Fig Seed Oil is a healing, soothing, and age-defying powerhouse.
The key ingredients in prickly pear oil are linoleic acid (65%), tocopherol or Vitamin E (over 1000 mg/kg), and Delta 7 stigmasterol. The result is a powerful yet gentle antioxidant, hydrating and rejuvenating your skin while absorbing rapidly with no oily residue.
Barbary Fig Seed Oil is cold pressed by hand, 100% pure, and certified organic by Ecocert.
Extracting prickly pear oil is a very time consuming and difficult process. Approximately a million seeds are needed to produce a litre of oil, and these seeds are almost as hard as pebbles. After they are separated from the fruit pulp, they are washed thoroughly and air-dried before being cold-pressed by hand. The entire process takes nearly a week, but the reward is the unmatched purity and quality of the end product.
