    Considered a panacea for preserving youthful skin, prickly pear oil is almost liquid gold!

    Exceptional care, its composition rich in omega-6 and vitamin E, provides the following actions:

    • promotes cell regeneration
    • acts as a skin repairer
    • prevents and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
    • provides a tightening and firming effect to the skin
    • protects the skin from free radicals
    • promotes microcirculation and brightens the complexion
    • softens and smoothes dry and rough skin

    Suitable for skin types: mature, combination, dry, irritated, flaky, rough, tired

    This oil is rare and expensive because it is obtained from the first cold pressing of the tiny seeds of the prickly pear. Very active, only a very small amount of oil is needed to offer its remarkable properties to the skin.

    How to use it for the natural beauty of the skin?

    Pure: massage a few drops into the face and chest as a valuable youthful skin care product. 

    Mixed: Prickly pear oil can be mixed with other less expensive vegetable oils to make youth serums, eye contour, firming face masks, bust care, etc.

    Mature skin: add a drop of prickly pear oil to your dose of regenerating fluid every morning for a reinforced firming action. You can also make your own fluid by mixing prickly pear oil with other youthful oils such as argan, rose hip, avocado, rosehip, plum and pomegranate.

    Eye contour: apply 1 drop of prickly pear oil as a preventive and smoothing treatment for the eye contour

    Scaly skin: massage very dry areas with prickly pear oil pure or combined with camelina, hemp, calendula, argan or shea butter oil.

    In general, prickly pear oil can be incorporated into all your home cosmetic recipes in the oil phase, for example:

    • in a youthful, wrinkle-preventing face cream
    • in a firming, anti-wrinkle and tightening serum, combined with organic aloe vera gel
    • one drop in your day cream or oily fluid to reinforce its action

    • As with any cosmetic product, keep out of reach of children
    • Do not heat up
