The real magic for our skin is in the pure unadulterated oil cold pressed from seeds of the prickly pear. It is not to be confused with cheaper macerated seeds – that is, seeds softened by soaking in liquid before pressing to produce more volume of yield. Nor is it to be confused with cheaper oil from the prickly pear fruit.
Each of the tiny black seeds present in the flesh of the fruit of this ‘miracle plant’ contains only 5% oil of the seeds mass weight.
No wonder it is called ‘the holy grail’ of oils’, considering it takes about a million seeds and 36 hours of labour to separate enough seeds to produce just 1 litre of oil making it by far, one of the most expensive oils in the world.
The seeds are separated from the pulp of the fruit, then dried and harvested in batches. They are gently cold pressed to preserve all the active ingredients.
This unique oil penetrates quickly and deeply into the skin’s dermis thereby stimulating collagen production. It combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with its antioxidant Betalain.
It packs 150 times more Vitamin E than Argan Oil, power packed with Linoleic, which is the essential fatty acid proven to lighten hyper-pigmentation and age spots. It soothes inflammation, and can be beneficial to acne sufferers.
The Vitamin K found in this oil can reduce puffiness and dark rings under eyes, overall it has a brightening effect on skin giving it a glowing appearance.
