Any idea what is in common between all these oils? (русский текст в комментариях⤵️)
The answer is simple: they all are based on one of the most powerful and super antioxidant oil of Prickly Pear seeds (from fruits of big and wide grown cactus Opuncia). This is one of most precious and costly oils: it takes about 8 tons of prickly pear fruits to produce just 1 liter of the oil! .
What is so special about this oil?
Prickly pear seed oil helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, prevent new wrinkle formation, brightens dark under-eye circles, calms redness, helps relieve sunburn, and brightens and evens complexion. The vitamin E found in prickly pear seed oil is the highest of any plant oil (3 times higher than argan oil). This oil is also very high in linoleic acid (Omega-6 family), which is proven to lighten hyper-pigmentation, protect the skin barrier, lower water loss, and increase moisture.
It also contains Vitamin K brightening under-eye circles, even skin tone and fortify broken capillaries, and zinc reducing redness and acne inflammation and decrease sebum production. The oil is high in phytosterols (beta-sitosterol) provides antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Ferulic acid and phenylalanine slow down melanin transfer while help to lightening skin tone. All these elements together works well for anti-aging concerns and boosts collagen production.
Sounds like miracle, doesn't it? And be honest this oil works!
For me it's a marvelous Mother Nature gift, one of my favorite natural components I'm always looking for!
