Nature's Desert Beauty Secret - Prickly Pear Oil

Nature's Desert Beauty Secret - Prickly Pear Oil

Just one of a handful carefully selected plants oil at Oil Divine - Prickly Pear oil is one of our most precious of them all. Revered for its remarkable benefits for both skin and hair, this oil stands out for its rarity and unique extraction process. While prickly pear fruit may be abundant in nature, the meticulous method involved in extracting the oil makes it one of the most expensive and rarest on the planet.

The Origins
Contrary to its name, Prickly Pear Oil does not hail from a pear tree but rather from the pads of a cactus plant known as Opuntia ficus. This stunning cactus thrives in the arid deserts of Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. As the world recognized the pink, sweet fruits of this cactus as a superfood, the plant gained popularity globally, ultimately revealing its hidden secret as a potent beauty ingredient.

Meticulous Extraction Process
The exceptional rarity of Prickly Pear Oil can be attributed to the meticulous extraction process involved. At Oil Divine, we source cold-pressed, certified organic Opuntia ficus seeds and produce the oil at our lovely small farm in Pennsylvania, USA. This ensures the preservation of the oil's integrity and potency, making it one of the most expensive and sought-after oils on the planet.

Nutrient-Dense Composition
Prickly Pear Seed Oil boasts a powerhouse of essential nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. These elements work synergistically to provide numerous benefits for the skin and hair, making it an ideal choice for various beauty applications. Among its impressive nutritional profile, Prickly Pear Oil is particularly rich in linoleic acid, omega 6 & 9, zinc, vitamin K, and betalains. Notably, it contains one of the highest concentrations of vitamin E found in any plant source, surpassing even the renowned Argan oil with approximately 150% more vitamin E.
