Top benefits of
Prickly Pear Oil


Face

Suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin | Comedogenic index - 1-2

Hydrates and revitalizes
Regarded as ‘a miracle moisturizer’, Prickly Pear Oil offers outstanding hydrating, healing, and revitalizing properties. It is a light textured oil that gets readily absorbed, leaving the skin velvety soft, supple, and radiant. High linoleic acid (Omega 6) boosts the skin’s water-retaining properties and strengthens the skin’s barrier to keep it hydrated. Unique ratio of linoleic and oleic acid (Omega 9) helps it to deeply penetrate the epidermis and replenish lost lipids, thereby moisturizing the skin and restoring its elasticity.
Prevents premature aging
Prickly Pear Oil is a powerhouse of anti-oxidants with the highest Vitamin E level among all natural oils, and 24 known betalain anti-oxidants. Powerful anti-oxidants help in delaying aging by protecting the skin from the free-radical and UV damage. Prickly Pear Oil is also a good source of amino acids, such as arginine, that promote cell turnover and collagen production, and help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Its powerful restorative and regenerative properties promote cell turnover and boost collagen production, thus tightening and toning the skin, and restoring its natural elasticity. Create a potent anti-aging blend by adding a few drops of Frankincense and Geranium Essential Oils to a mixture of Prickly Pear Oil and Rosehip Oil. Apply a few drops of this blend daily with a gentle pat after cleansing, and leave overnight for better results.
Fades scars, marks, and blemishes
With its unique composition of Vitamin E and K, Prickly Pear Oil is known to fade acne marks, dark spots, blemishes, scars, and stretch marks. It also helps to brighten the skin, even skin tone, and reduce hyperpigmentation. You may add Tamanu and Rosehip oils to make a more potent anti-scar blend. Add a few drops of Carrot Seed and Helichrysum Essential Oils for added benefits. Apply this blend to the affected area regularly to get the most benefit.
Reduces dark circles
The unique composition of Vitamin E and K helps prevent under-eye circles. You may add Avocado Oil, Rosehip Oil, and a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil to make a more potent under-eye blend.
Strengthens skin’s barrier function
Owing to the rich linoleic acid content, Prickly Pear Oil assists in strengthening the skin’s protective barrier.
Treats chapped lips
Apply a few drops of Prickly Pear Oil to moisturize and treat dry, chapped lips. It gets readily absorbed into the skin, leaving the lips soft and luscious.

Hair

Suitable for dry, dull, or lackluster hair

Conditions hair
Prickly Pear Oil makes for a great conditioner on account of its high Vitamin E level that makes a protective layer over the hair strands and restore their natural shine. It improves the hair texture by effectively sealing-in moisture, reducing breakage, and preventing split ends.
Promotes hair growth
Studies show that high Vitamin E level in Prickly Pear Oil promotes healthy scalp. Its powerful antioxidant properties help neutralize free radicals and oxidative stress that weaken hair follicles causing potential hair fall.

Nails


Strengthens nails
Prickly Pear Oil is good to repair and restore damaged cuticles and nails. It penetrates deep enough to keep the nail bed moisturized, healthy, and strong. Apply Prickly Pear Oil with the help of a cotton swab to protect your nails from drying out and brittleness.

Soothes skin conditions

It is also helpful in repairing skin damaged by overexposure to the sun’s rays and environmental pollution. You may add Rosehip or Calendula Oil for a more potent blend. For more severe skin conditions, you can add Sea Buckthorn, Black Seed Oil or Hemp Seed Oil.

Know more about
Prickly Pear Oil



Prickly Pear Oil, also known as Cactus Oil, is extracted from the tiny seeds of the fruits of a cactus plant called Opuntia Ficus Indica or Opunita or Nopal Cactus. While Prickly Pear plant is native to United States, Mexico, and South America, the best Prickly Pear Oil for skincare comes from Morocco (this is where Aroma Tierra Prickly Pear Oil comes from). For centuries, Prickly Pear fruits have been long used for healing and culinary purposes. The Native Americans used it to treat whooping cough and asthma, the Aztecs used it to soothe burns, and the Mexican medicine used it to treat diabetes and high cholesterol. Today, Prickly Pear is making momentum in the beauty world for its exceptionally nourishing, skin-softening, and highly moisturizing Prickly Pear Oil. 

Prickly Pear Oil has an expensive price tag attached to it due to its labor-intensive and time-consuming production process. It is extracted from the tiny seeds, where each seed contains only about 5% oil. So it takes a whopping 25-30 kgs of seeds or 8 tonnes of the fruit to produce just 1 liter of the oil! 

Regarded as ‘a miracle oil’, Prickly Pear Oil is an amazing multi-tasking oil that offers outstanding hydrating, healing, and anti-aging properties. It is one of the most effective skin-nourishing botanical oils in the world! It is a light oil with a satiny and richly smooth texture that gets readily absorbed, leaving the skin looking velvety soft, supple, and radiant.

Prickly Pear Oil is a superfood for the skin as it is full of anti-oxidants, Vitamins E & K, omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, amino acids, zinc, polyphenols, and phytosterols. It has extremely high levels of Vitamin E and is the only plant to contain all 24 known betalain antioxidants! It also contains among the highest percentage (>85%) of unsaturated fatty acids than any other oil, with an optimal ratio of linoleic to oleic at about 3:1.

Prickly Pear Oil is your skin’s ultimate companion – it is protective, healing, hydrating, revitalizing, and anti-aging. Its rich linoleic acid content helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function, leaving the skin healthy, hydrated, and nourished. The unique composition of Vitamin E and K helps prevent under-eye circles, lighten dark spots, brighten skin, and even the skin tone. Prickly Pear Oil is also known for its potent anti-aging properties. It actively combats free radicals and reduces the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Its powerful restorative and regenerative properties promote cell turnover and boost collagen production, thus tightening and toning the skin and restoring its natural elasticity. Prickly Pear oil also works wonders for hair – it nourishes the scalp, conditions dull or dry hair, and restores natural shine & strength.

Why Aroma Tierra Prickly Pear Oil?


Aroma Tierra brings the finest Prickly Pear Oil extracted from the best quality prickly pear seeds from organic farming. We use the seeds from the best quality carefully hand-picked prickly pear fruits from Morocco. Our Prickly Pear Oil is 100% pure, natural, organic, cold-pressed, and extra-virgin, with no further refining or processing to ensure that all the nutrients remain intact. Our Prickly Pear Oil is pale yellow in color and has a very mild characteristic aroma.

Aroma Tierra Prickly Pear Oil is ‘Certified Organic’ by ECOCERT, a globally reputed certification body from France, that has a stringent evaluation process. Our production standards guarantee that everything from the beginning to the end is organically made and that the oil is free from chemicals, preservatives, solvents, and hexane.

Our careful cold-pressed extraction method ensures that the delicate nutrients of Prickly Pear are not destroyed by heat. Further, we do not deodorize, decolorize, or refine our Prickly Pear Oil. Refining the oil elongates its shelf life, but comes at a cost of destroying some of its natural nutrients. Similarly, deodorization rids the oil of its nutty aroma, but it compromises the nutritional profile of the oil. Therefore, we emphasize on using the cold-pressed, non-deodorized, and extra-virgin quality to gain the maximum benefits. 

Furthermore, we use specially designed violet-glass bottles to preserve the potency of the oil and elongate its shelf life.


Why Organic?


Today, using the term 'organic' is unregulated in most markets and is often misleading. Products labeled as 'organic' offer no guarantee that they are free from synthetic chemicals or pesticides unless certified by a credible independent body.

Aroma Tierra organic range is 'Certified organic' by ECOCERT, a globally reputed independent certification body from France that follows very stringent organic certification standards. We ensure that everything from beginning to end is organic – farmland is organic for at least 3 years, seeds are organic and non-GMO, farming is done without pesticides and chemical fertilizers, cleaning agents are organic, extraction is organic, and packaging does not contaminate the organic product.
