WHAT MAKES the PRICKLY PEAR so EFFECTIVE?
The Prickly Pear Cactus Seeds are rich in Phyto-Nutrients and these Nutrients are what give the oil it’s incredible beauty and anti-aging benefits.
The Essential and Non-Essential Fatty Acids of the Prickly Pear Cactus Oil softens and repairs aging skin while helping the skin to retain moisture. The Fatty Acids help to reduce inflammation and acne. They help the strength and integrity of the connective tissue of the skin and enhance youthful suppleness. Anyone who has tried it knows that your skin literally drinks in the oil and it doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily.
Vitamin E is a powerful Antioxidant and Free Radical Scavenger, which helps give it its powerful anti-aging benefits. Vitamin E helps the inflammation and promotes the production of Collagen and Connective tissue which add structure to sagging skin. Vitamin E also helps to reduce scars and to soften fine lines and wrinkles. I want some of that!
Phytosterols give skin a juicy and plump texture. This helps the skin build collagen and retain moisture therefore reducing signs of aging.
Polyphenols are another form of Antioxidant that reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. The Polyphenols add to the protection against free radicals and Sun Damage.
