The oil’s protective, nourishing, emollient and regenerative properties allow it to soften, brighten and heal the skin, and to improve hydration, which reduces dry skin.

Prickly Pear Oil is easily absorbed through the skin. Using it regularly gives the skin a natural shine and keeps it firm, smooth and supple. The oil’s antioxidants combat the aging effects of the sun, pollution and stress.

Prickly pear oil contains flavonoids that prevent the release of compounds involved in the inflammation process. The effects are anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antihistamine.
