Prickly Pear cactus is known as the miracle plant for its ability to survive during long droughts and still produce healthy fruits. The Prickly Pear fruit contains numerous small black seeds from which the precious Prickly Pear seed oil is extracted. Quickly and deeply absorbed by the skin, this oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and 9, and the natural antioxidant vitamin E. It is also rich in amino acids, which stimulate collagen production to promote faster cell turnover. It also contains vitamin K, which brightens under-eye dark circles and also promotes the skin’s elasticity. Prickly Pear seed oil helps fill out and plump the skin, smooth fine lines while increasing the firmness and remove dirt and excess of sebum. It balances sebum production and soothes the skin.
