Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Opuntia Ficus Indica) is a part of the cactus family and is also commonly referred to as Barbary Fig. Found in various arid parts of the world most often the cosmetic grade oil is produced in Morocco where production is closely regulated. Due to the delicate nature of the Prickly Pear fruits, they are often harvested by hand to ensure they are not damaged. The fruits contain tiny black seeds that are manually pressed to remove the precious oil. It can take as many as 66 pounds of seeds to gather just over one quart of oil. Our oil is a organic, cold pressed virgin oil, meaning it is grown without harmful pesticides and no heat is applied to it during the extraction process, limiting the potential for the delicate properties to be impacted or damaged.
