Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Opuntia ficus-indica)


With the highest Vitamin E content of all carrier oils, this Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the most effective skin nourishing oils. Prickly Pear is a treasured oil as the seeds contain little oil, only about 5%. In order to produce this precious oil around a half ton of seed is necessary to make just 16 ounces! This oil is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger.

Our Prickly Pear Seed Oil has an aromatically pleasant subtle sweet aroma, similar to its ripe fresh fruit. This oil is rapidly absorbed, highly moisturizing, leaves skin feeling velvety soft, improves skin elasticity and is an valuable addition to anti-aging formulations. This oil is also an excellent choice for dry and damaged hair.

Choose from 3 Miron violet glass bottle styles - Gel pump, Euro dropper or Pour cap. The Gel pump cap disperses .1ml oil in one pump. The Euro dropper cap disperses oils by the drop. The Pour cap ensures an easy and controlled free pour of the oil contained within. 5ml sample bottles comes packaged in Miron glass with euro dropper cap.
