BEAUTY OIL: PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL

Over the last few years Prickly Pear Seed Oil has made a quite name for itself in the natural beauty scene. And please believe us when we say the hype is real! Prickly pear seed oil is definitely one of the most powerful oils available to be used on our skin. So what’s so special about this prickly ingredient? Interestingly enough prickly pear seeds are separated from the pulp and are then dried before being cold pressed. Due to the fact that each seed contains only 5% of oil, up to 60 lbs. of seeds (and a half a ton of fruits) are required to yield about 34oz. of oil.
