Botanic

A cactus native to Latin America, the prickly pear grows today mainly in the Mediterranean basin. It is from its fruits, juicy and fragrant figs, that the oil is extracted by cold pressing the seeds.

But before that, you have to harvest these famous fruits, often in extreme conditions. Loving semi-arid areas, prickly pears actually grow very densely, making picking tricky. Especially since the figs themselves are covered with small thorns that are difficult to avoid.

PROPERTIES OF PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL

Non-greasy and non-comedogenic, it has the particularity of being sebum-regulating, which makes it interesting for oily and acne-prone skin.

  • antioxidant, it protects the skin from ageing. Vitamin E and sterols are all antioxidant compounds that help fight against free radicals present in the body. For 100g of oil, there are 100 mg of vitamin E and 1000 mg of sterols. Argan oil for example contains 60mg of vitamin E and 130 mg of sterols
  • firming and softening: it prevents skin ageing. Also, it maintains firmness and elasticity thanks to its richness in Omega6.
  • promotes the natural skin regeneration process with omega 6.
  • soothing: protects skin from dehydration and effectively softens skin
  • healing, skin regenerating: Prickly pear seed oil is composed of nearly 60% unsaturated fatty acids. The essential fatty acids are not synthesized by the body so this is important to obtain them from the outside. By entering into the composition of cell membranes, these fatty acids participate in the reconstitution of cells and therefore in skin regeneration.
