Ingredient Spotlight: Prickly Pear Seed Oil

Prickly Pear Oil/Barbary Fig Oil

 

Prickly pear has to be the most luxurious oil we've come across. It is 150 x higher in vitamin E than argan oil and extremely difficult to extract which means it is costly to produce. It takes a ridiculous amount of pears to get 5 ML of prickly pear oil, but the very littlest amount contains a combination of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. It is most reputed for intercepting free-radical damage caused by the sun, processed foods or our environment, and for leaving the skin immediately plump & firm.

It contains Niacinamide (vitamin B 3) which is quite the multitasker when it comes to its functions as a nutrient: it helps balance & calm inflamed skin and it evens out skin texture (which if you've ever had pimples and made the mistake of playing with them-you know what we're talking about!).

 

It also contains vitamin K, a great topical treatment to dark under eye circles.

The also called Barbarian fig is known to endure and actually flourish in the harshest of climates, and well, we kinda love that. 

 

It's one of the main components in our Muse Oil, in fact roughly 30% of the total formula. One of the reasons it is truly a potent, and effective topical multivitamin to your skin for all skin types & concerns.
