AED 245Regarded as a ‘miracle moisturizer’, Prickly Pear Oil offers outstanding hydrating, healing, and anti-aging properties. It helps to brighten dull skin, fade scars, and make skin soft and supple. It is packed with skin-nourishing nutrients and has the highest vitamin E level occurring in any natural oil. Ingredients: 100% Organic Opuntia Ficus Indica Seed 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.

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.
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.
