Product Description

Prickly pear seed oil is extracted from the fruit of the prickly pear cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica). The oil is made by cold pressing the seeds of the fruit.

Prickly pear oil is a highly beneficial beauty oil with the highest amount of vitamin E compared to any other oil available in the market. It has 150% more vitamin E than argan oil, making it an excellent source of this vital nutrient. It is rich in essential fatty acids, such as omega 6 and 9, antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and vitamin K.

Prickly pear seed oil’s high content of essential fatty acids helps to calm inflammation and redness, especially for those with rosacea. The oil is easily absorbed into the skin and penetrates quickly without leaving any greasy residue. The oil is commonly used for skin treatments – offering the following benefits:

  • Intensely hydrates the skin.
  • Suitable for all skin types but works particularly well on dry, mature skin.
  • Brightens skin and gets rid of dark spots. Reduces wrinkles and adds firmness.
  • Highly effective moisturiser.
  • Easily absorbed into the skin.
  • Does not clog your pores. It calms inflammation and redness, especially for those prone to rosacea.
  • Brighten under-eye circles and minimise spider veins.
  • The fatty acid profile of linoleic acid and oleic acid replenishes lost lipids within the skin, which helps moisturise and restore skin elasticity.
  • Its high linoleic acid content helps prevent sebum from hardening and thus prevents blocked pores, which can lead to acne and spots.
  • The high linoleic acid content, roughly 62%, ensures that even the most dehydrated skin is soothed.

The addition of frankincense, known for its ability to beautify and rejuvenate skin, helps to reduce the appearance of sunspots and age spots. Neroli essential oil has also been shown to slow ageing, significantly reduce wrinkles, and add a beautiful fragrance.

Our Prickly Pear Serum is part of our new Afrika Botanicals and Moya Essentials range of products using the best Southern African speciality oils – locally and sustainably produced.

How to use: Use a couple of drops of serum after cleansing your face. You can spread them gently over your skin, paying attention to problem areas. Once absorbed, you can apply your moisturiser. It can be used in the morning and evening.

Ingredients: Prickly pear seed oil, frankincense and neroli essential oils, vit E
