Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Opuntia Ficus-Indica Seed Oil) is a real wonder of nature for skincare. A very lightweight oil, it is able to penetrate the epidermis (outer skin layer) efficiently. This makes it suitable for all skin types. including combination or oily skin.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains unique phytochemicals that provide excellent moisturisation due to their special ability to retain water. It also supports skin barrier protection against harsh environmental factors due to a high concentration of Vitamin E (Tocopherol), a potent antioxidant.
It takes 36 hours of hand-labour to separate 1 million seeds to extract just 1 litre of this precious oil. With 61% Linoleic Acid it content ensures a far lighter, fast-absorbing texture and greater moisturising effect than other plant-based oils like Argan Oil.
Sahara Prickly Pear Seed Oil used by Huxley Skincare is certified as a safe organic ingredient by Eco-Cert.
