So, what exactly is Prickly Pear Seed oil?
Native to North Africa, this highly-powerfully healing oil has been used for generations to treat everything - from illnesses to skin concerns. Extremely rich in vitamin E and brimming with an array of antioxidants, it is one of the most powerful, luxurious skincare ingredients in the world and, if that wasn't enough, Prickly Pear Seed Oil has the highest vitamin E content on the market.
Not everyone would typically associate cactus' with skincare, mainly because cacti are prickly and we wouldn't suggest touching them - at all. However, as with most desert plants, the inside contains many benefits. While the world has only recently picked up on it, there are over a hundred species of prickly pear endemic to North Africa alone and the indigenous people of Morocco have been using it for centuries.
With all the historical facts being fascinating, let's move on to the real deal - the benefits.
