Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil
Pure, Cold-Pressed & Unrefined
The Barbary fig or Moroccan prickly pear as it is more commonly known is found on the island of Morocco in North Africa. Like argan oil traditionally prickly pear seed oil was used for culinary as well as healing purposes but is now commonly used in the skincare haircare markets.
There are a number of benefits of choosing 100% organic and pure prickly pear seed oil. The oil is highly moisturising, skin-softening, hydrating and anti-inflammatory. Cold-pressed from the seeds of the Moroccan prickly pear (Barbary fig), this luxury oil offers exceptional hydration and support to the skin. Our Moroccan prickly pear seed oil is 100% organic, pure and completely unrefined in order to preserve its efficacy.
