Our Prickly Pear Seed carrier oil has a very high content of essential fatty acids which help calm down any inflammation and redness. The super oil is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving any horrible greasy residue. This oil contains effective and potent antioxidants, which are called betalains. Prickly Pear contains more betalains than any other plant. These super antioxidant properties help to protect skin against ageing from several types of damaging radicals which would otherwise encourage wrinkle formation.
This seed oil also contains many amino acids which may help stimulate collagen production. Thanks to its vitamin K content, prickly pear oil provides aid to brighten hyper-pigmentation areas - such as dark spots. It is also highly beneficial when it comes to under-eye dark circles.
