The Barbary fig, or Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) tree, originally from Mexico, now thrives near the Mediterranean Sea. The rare and precious Prickly Pear oil is extracted from the tree’s edible fruit in very small quantities. High in vitamin E, it is a powerful antioxidant and is renown for its anti-aging and protective properties.
Prickly Pear beauty oil is anti-aging and antioxidant. Light and fluid, it is quickly absorbed by the skin without leaving a greasy film. It protects against skin aging and dehydration caused by exposure to the elements (sun, wind). Prickly Pear oil prevents skin aging, dehydration, and accelerates the skin’s natural healing process. This nourishing and softening oil also has firming effects, which tighten and tone the skin.
