Prickly Pear Oil Organic

Escentials of Australia


opuntia ficus-indica

High in Omega-6 Fatty Acids and naturally occurring Carotenoids, Vitamins C and E, and Flavonoids, this skin-toning oil contains powerful Antioxidants. This nutrient-rich, fast absorbing oil is high in Linoleic Acid, which enhances skin elasticity and brightens the complexion, imparting its anti-ageing effects.

High Vitamin E and Amino Acids content stimulate collagen production and protect the cells against free radicals.

Penetrates nicely into the skin,  to provide good hydration without much residual oiliness.

We're trying this in most of face serum recipes at the moment to see how it feels in synergy with the other actives.  Will add more info once we've finished trialling.

Tip 1. use about 10% in your serum if you're not using any other actives.  If you are suing other actives then make your prickly pear about 5%.

Tip 2. it goes very well with Cacay oil - use them about 1:1.  Good luck
