Prickly Pear Seed Oil 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 uses prickly pear seed oil in a wide range of natural and organic cosmetics and care, comprising around 160 products. Herbalya natural care offers organic certified (AB, ECOCERT, USDA, NOP) prickly pear seed 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.
