Prickly pear seed/Barbary fig seed oil is exceptionally high in vitamin E and linoleic acid. Also rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, active minerals and amino acids. 

Light and easily absorbed, it penetrates below the surface of the skin for maximum benefits without leaving any oily residue.

Great for all skin types, supporting skin repair after trauma and providing protection from environmental stress. Excellent for mature skin as it can help address signs of ageing, while the high fatty acid content plumps skin to help smooth wrinkles and increase firmness.

Also highly beneficial to dry hair and scalp.
