What is Prickly Pear oil?
Prickly pear oil is touted as the “Nature’s Answer to Botox”. Now obviously, like many other folklores, this one too may be a little far-fetched, but as they say, there’s no smoke without fire. And then again, most of your anti-ageing products are for a long-term view and not an overnight result. So, let’s dive right into the science of this miracle oil.
High in Fatty Acids:
Out of all the oils available for beauty in the World, Prickly pear oil has the highest percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, which are essential to stimulating healthy growth of new cells.
Let’s take a deeper look into these fatty acids constitution.
60.5% linoleic acid: Linoleic acid is great for the skin. It not only is hydrating and soothing for the skin, it also improves the production of both vitamin-e, flavonoids (which help increase collagen production) and most importantly, new cells.
With age, our cell renewal process reduces, and therefore we see signs of ageing. With high linoleic acid, Prickly pear oil can really help reduce signs of ageing effectively.
20.6% oleic acid: Also found in avocado oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil, this fatty acid seals in moisture and helps other beneficial ingredients to penetrate the skin more easily.
Vitamin-E: Prickly pear oil contains 150% more vitamin-e than Argan oil. Which means that this oil has a miraculously high antioxidation benefit for the skin, hence further helping in the reducing the signs of ageing. Vitamin-E is also very helpful in reducing scars, due to its antioxidants.
All these above constitute to make Prickly pear oil the classic ‘NATURE’S BOTOX’. Grab your bottle of Prickly pear oil today to really see and feel the difference yourself.
How to Use this Oil
Using the oil is easy. Just put 3-4 drops of the oil in your hands, and rub it all around your face. If you want effects on a particular part of the face, then you can apply a drop or so on the affected part as well. Since this is an undiluted oil, you don’t need to worry about it suiting you.
Why is Prickly Pear Oil so expensive?
The Prickly pear oil is very labour-intensive oil and requires a lot of time to produce. Further, each seed of Prickly pear contains just 3-5% oil, as compared with something like a coconut oil, where each seed/ kernel contains up to 90% oil. Which means, to produce 1 Liter of Prickly pear oil, we need roughly 28 kilograms of the Prickly pear plant.
