Prickly Pear Seed Oil: The Eco Secret To Bright & Radiant Skin
Prickly pear is a remarkable ingredient that if you aren’t using, you may want to start! A member of the cactus family, it’s incredibly hydrating and full of anti-inflammatory properties. Keen to know more about the prickly pear seed oil found in their WONDER face oil, we asked our friends over at BEAR to share their wisdom.
The WONDER face oil is rich in natural antioxidant vitamin E.
WONDER is a single-origin luxury face oil harvested from cold-pressed prickly pear seeds, rich in natural antioxidant vitamin E to help protect against free radicals and improve microcirculation within the skin. Linoleic acid, an omega-6 essential fatty acid, increases cell turnover, encourages new collagen production, and acts as a natural anti-aging treatment. Powerful vitamin K helps brighten the skin for a youthful and radiant complexion.
Sustainably sourced and made with certified organic ingredients.
Our prickly pear seed oil is harvested in the heart of Tunisia, North Africa bordering the Mediterranean Sea and Sahara Desert. The 198 hectare farm is certified by ECOCERT under the COSMOS standard; an independent European certification that guarantees the traceability and transparency of natural and organic ingredients.
The tiny seeds that dot the pulp of the prickly pear fruit contain only 5% oil. The fruit is harvested by hand and the seeds are carefully separated from the pulp, washed, dried and stored in a cool, dry place. In small batches, the seeds are cold-pressed to extract the oil and preserve the active ingredients. Sustainably harvesting and seeding 1000kg of prickly pears yield only one litre of precious oil.
