Opuntia seed oil cold pressed is also known as prickly pear seed oil and it’s one of the most luxurious oils in the world. It’s a unique oil obtained from the seeds of the fruits growing on the cactus fig. Each seed contains only around 5% of this precious oil. We offer the oil only in organic quality.

Cold pressed opuntia seed oil – For centuries, it has been one of the favourite cosmetics used by Berber women, which use prickly pear oil to moisturize their skin and protect it against the harmful effects of desert air. The Aztecs used prickly pear to treat burns, the Chinese used it to treat abscesses, and Native Americans consumed its fruit and used it to make syrup for whooping cough and bronchial asthma. In traditional Mexican medicine, fig opuntia oil has also been used to treat diabetes and high cholesterol. Mexicans even used it to paint churches and houses, as well as to delimit property boundaries.
