Prickly Pear Seed Oil: we are producers and we control the entire value chain
Inside the delicious fruits of the prickly pear are seeds that contain oil carrying different types of fatty acids, phenols, nutrients such as vitamin E, phytosterols, and antioxidants. Several companies now extract prickly pear oil and sell it as skin care products suitable for all skin types, including acne-prone and dry skin. Prickly pear oil is not an essential oil. Instead, it’s commonly used as a carrier oil to dilute more potent essential oils, or simply on its own to boost skin health.
Herbalya natural care offers organic certified (AB, ECOCERT, USDA, NOP) cactus oil.
This precious vegetable oil is obtained by the first cold pressure of prickly pear seeds without any solvent. It takes more than 1000 kilos of prickly pear fruit to get a liter of the oil knowing that each fruit contains only 0.1% of seed oil.
At herbalya, we control the entire chain of production and valuation from the culture to the packaging of the final product, without neglecting any step and this in the most eco-responsible and eco-solidarity way possible. And this is the secret of the irreproachable quality of our products as well as the secret of the satisfaction of our customers.
Our pure and organic oil is produced by women hands, from the seeds at the source with passion and love. HERBALYA precious oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids,Omega 6, Omega 9 and vitamin E promote your skin’s elasticity. It’s also rich in aminoacids, which stimulate collagen production to promote faster cell turnover. It contains vitamin K which brightens under-eye dark circles.
Which skin type is it good for?
The organic prickly pear seed oil is obtained by first cold pressing of the seeds contained in the prickly pear fruit (Opuntia Ficus Indica). The process is manually and mechanically (no heat is used) and filtered naturally without any processing or refining operation. It is a 100% Tunisian product certified organic according to the European standards ECOCERT, AB and the Américan standart NOP: USDA.
The HERBALYA Organic Prickly pear seed oil promotes you:
Wrinkles not so cute on us as we get older. We can’t stop the aging process, but we can minimize the damage and the wrinkles.
Our skin has two layers: the epidermis (outer layer) and the dermis (below the epidermis). Wrinkles happen in the dermis. The dermis is made up of collagen and other proteins. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. The collagen is what makes our skin elastic and smooth. Less collagen results in saggy skin with wrinkles.
The organic prickly pear seed oil is one of the best carrier oils for creating skin-healing oil blends. Rich in omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid, helps to hydrate and nourish skin while vitamins A and E contained in the oil encourage regeneration of skin cells and collagen production to help reduce fine lines.
Absorbs into skin relatively quickly and is considered non-greasy, so it can be used on virtually any skin type. However, this oil is especially helpful for hydrating and healing very dry skin. Contains large amounts of vitamins E, meaning that this oil not only helps skin to regenerate and maintain elasticity, it also promotes better circulation.
