Cacti are truly a phenomenon in the plant kingdom. Their seeds are specialists at thriving in dry, unforgiving environments. What this means for you? Tap this prickly plant to give skin and hair the refreshing hydration and protection it needs, and you’ll never look at a succulent garden the same way again.
A hydrating, protective oil for face and hair.
Cacti are some of the most robust and resilient plants in the world. They’ve evolved to absorb and retain water efficiently, and that’s what makes their seeds such an incredible resource for hydration—for skin and hair. The prickly pear is especially unique and well adapted to survive against all odds with its abundance of fatty acids, which also happen to be beneficial for skin: linoleic acid boosts cell turnover and improves skin elasticity; oleic acid is anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating; and palmitic acid balances pH. Oh, and prickly pear also packs plenty of vitamin E to protect against daily stress, from stuffy subway rides to sleepless nights. So when dull skin or lifeless hair needs a major refresh, give it a drink of Prickly Pear Seed Oil and carry on.
