Prickly Pear Seed Oil
Prickly Pear Seed Oil (also known as Cactus Seed Oil or Barbary Fig Seed Oil) is an all natural oil extracted from the seeds of the Opuntia Ficus Indica cactus fruit. This cactus thrives in hot, arid areas of the world – like Morocco. This cactus produces beautiful bright pink and yellow flowers in the spring which produce fruit by the end of summer.
This oil is 100% natural and pure derived from organic farms in Morocco. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is extracted from a cold pressing process. This oil comes from the highest quality cactus seeds produced on co-op farms in southern Morocco.

Prickly Pear Seed Oil is extracted during a very time-consuming and laborious procedure. The production of 1 liter Prickly Pear Seed Oil takes 36 hours of manual labor. About 1 million prickly pear seeds are needed to make this amount. The seeds are separated from the pulp of 470 kg of cactus fruit. Then they are washed carefully, air-dried under the sun, and then stored in a cool and dry place. The seeds will then be freshly cold-pressed in a very careful way to extract the very small amount of oil in each seed.
