What is good about Prickly Pear?

What does Prickly Pear do?

The oil is also rich in vitamin E, vitamin K, and amino acids, which help stimulate collagen production, strengthen elasticity, promote fast cell turnover, and brighten hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles.

Prickly Pear contains one of the highest amounts of betalains – a super antioxidant pigment – which helps to protect skin from free radicals and oxidative stress.

Who is Prickly Pear good for?

It is non-comedogenic, and easily absorbed into skin and penetrates quickly without leaving any greasy residue.
