Flora Maia Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Opuntia ficus-indica seed oil)
Our Pure and Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil is exceptionally high (1000 mg/Kg) in Tocopherols (a naturally occurring Vitamin E) , an antioxidant and free-radical scavenger. Vitamin E is believed to improve the skin’s water-binding ability and has been found to reduce trans-epidermal water loss, therefore improving the appearance of dry skin. Vitamin E can help maintain connective tissue and has anti-inflammatory properties. Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains almost 150% more Tocopherol than Argan oil.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is also high in linoleic acid (Omega-6) an essential fatty acid. Linoleic acid has skin conditioning properties which helps prevent dryness and roughness.
