Cactus seed oil is a rare, precious oil that is cold-pressed from the seeds of species of prickly pear cactus native to North Africa. Used as a potent, high-performance facial serum, it is now considered in Europe the ultimate panacea for preventing and reversing premature skin aging.
Its extremely high levels of phytosterols, tocopherols (natural vitamin E) and polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (mostly omega-6s) together make Cactus seed oil highly nutritive, emollient, protective, regenerative and toning to the skin. Its nutrients penetrate rapidly and deeply into the deepest layers of the epidermis, resulting in a serum that is extraordinarily antioxidant and rejuvenating to the skin.

Our Cactus seed oil is expeller pressed in the artisan way by a Berber women's coop in the Moroccan Sahara desert. It is virgin cold-pressed in the traditional artisan manner and certified organic.
Directions: After cleansing, mist with a hydrosol to tone and moisturize. With the skin barely dry, massage 2-3 drops of Cactus seed oil into those facial areas needing treatment twice daily; especially around the eyes, lips and any areas with wrinkles. The oil will penetrate quickly. For best results, apply consistently every morning and night after cleansing.
Cactus seed oil can also be mixed in with Argan Oil Facial Serum, as well day and night creams. Like argan oil itself, it can also be used directly for treating split ends and broken nails, scar tissue and fissures.
