Discover your new favourite skincare ingredient: Prickly Pear Oil

At Beauty Expert, we always want to know the latest trending skincare ingredient that we need to add to our routine. Prickly Pear and Prickly Pear Oil are hydrating, healing, anti-ageing ingredients that are becoming increasingly more popular in our favourite beauty products.

Easy to integrate into your existing beauty regime, there are benefits across all skin types. Read on to learn more about this skincare secret saviour.

What is Prickly Pear Oil?

Sourced from the fruit pods of the Prickly Pear Cactus, Prickly Pear Oil is nutrient-rich and packed with powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties. It’s naturally rich in conditioning Vitamin E and brightening Vitamin K, which work in synergy to reduce pigmentation, promote the production of collagen and blur the visible signs of ageing and imperfections.

Due to these incredible benefits, Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a highly sought-after skincare ingredient. However, it is also highly expensive to produce as the seeds only contain approximately 5% oil.

To make the most of this precious, luxurious ingredient, we’ve created an edit of the best prickly pear beauty products.
