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. It makes the skin velvety soft, supple, and radiant. High linoleic acid (omega 6) helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function and boost the skin’s water-retaining properties.

Prevents premature aging

Prickly Pear Oil is a powerhouse of antioxidants such as vitamin E, polyphenols, flavonoids, and tannins, which makes it effective in combating free radical damage and delaying aging. Prickly Pear Oil is also a good source of amino acids that promote cell turnover and collagen production and help minimize the appearance of fine lines. Create a potent anti-aging oil by adding a few drops of Frankincense and Geranium Essential Oils to a mixture of Prickly Pear Oil and Rosehip Oil.

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. Add Tamanu and Rosehip Oils to make a potent anti-scar blend. Add a few drops of Carrot Seed and Helichrysum Essential Oils for added benefits.

Reduces dark circles

Prickly Pear Oil is a very popular choice for undereye treatment. It helps reduce dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Add Avocado Oil and Rosehip Oils, and a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil to make a powerful under-eye blend.

Strengthens skin’s barrier function

Prickly Pear Oil contains a very high amount of linoleic acid (omega 6, an essential fatty acid), which helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function, thereby protecting the skin against environmental stressors such as pollutants, microorganisms, and UV rays. It also provides long-lasting hydration by locking-in moisture and preventing transepidermal water loss.

Treats dry lips

Apply a few drops of Prickly Pear Oil to moisturize and treat dry, chapped lips. It gets readily absorbed and makes the lips soft and luscious.


(Suitable for dry, dull, or lackluster hair)

Conditions hair

Prickly Pear Oil makes for a great conditioner due to its beneficial fatty acid profile and high vitamin E levels. It forms a protective layer over the hair strands and restores their natural shine and texture. Further, it helps to effectively seal in moisture, reduce breakage, and prevent split ends.

Promotes scalp health

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.


Strengthens nails

Prickly Pear Oil is good to repair and restore damaged cuticles and nails. It keeps 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 becoming brittle.


(Suitable for all skin types, including oily or sensitive skin)

Moisturizes & revitalizes

Prickly Pear Oil is a very nourishing and hydrating body oil. It helps to improve the skin texture, even skin tone, and make the skin soft, supple, and youthful. Apply it generously on your body on damp skin.

Soothes skin conditions

Prickly Pear Oil is a gentle oil that has great anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe skin conditions such as redness, itchiness, dryness, and inflammation. It is also helpful in repairing skin damaged by overexposure to the sun’s rays and environmental pollution. Add Sea Buckthorn, Black Seed Oil, and Hemp Seed Oil for a powerful soothing blend.

Lightens stretch marks

Prickly Pear Oil is known to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by promoting skin regeneration. Add Rosehip and Tamanu Oil for additional benefits.
