Words by Anny Schneider

Very fine, rare and precious oil, it comes from the seeds of the prickly pear fruit, native to Mexico, a kind of cactus very present in the semi-desert lands of the Mediterranean and other dry parts of the Earth. 

Given its richness in linoleic acid and omega 9, phytosterols and vitamin E, it is especially reserved for the skin of the face, to fight wrinkles and moisturize very dry skin.


Vegetable oil produced in Morocco with the seeds of the prickly pear fruit.


Prickly pear oil is not comedogenic.

This oil is extremely rich in sterols, omega 6 and vitamin E, perfect for fighting free radicals.
