The Skincare Benefits of Prickly Pear Seed Oil

What better ingredient to add to our Desert Sunset Palette than the glow-inducing Prickly Pear Seed Oil extracted from the seeds of the Barbary Fig Cactus? While spiky and not so friendly on the outside, Prickly Pear Seed Oil is incredibly nourishing and transformative for the skin. After all, these plants stay alive in the moisture-parched, unforgiving landscape of the desert - they are incredible survivors that work wonders on our skin.

How Prickly Pear Loves On Your Skin

Deep-down hydration

Rich in linoleic acid and oleic acid, Prickly Pear Seed Oils strengthens the skin's barrier, allowing it to better retain moisture for deeply hydrated, ultra-loved skin.

Boosts collagen & prevents damage

Prickly Pear is packed with amino acids omega 6 and 9 which help stimulate collagen production and deeply nourish the skin.

With almost double the Vitamin E of any other skincare oil, prickly pear seed oil is incredibly effective at preventing free-radical damage that leads to premature signs of aging.

Brightens and blurs fine lines

The Vitamin K in Prickly Pear Seed Oil helps calm redness, even out discoloration, reduce inflammation, and smooth the look of wrinkles and fine lines.
