OUR NEWEST PRODUCT! CHECK IT OUT
The Prickly Pear Cactus, native to Mexico, is now found in many semi-arid parts of the world. Our Prickly Pear Seed Cactus Oil comes from Morocco, as do the rest of our MOROCCAN ELIXIR PRODUCTS.
Known as the “Miracle Plant”, the Prickly Pear Cactus is able to survive with very little water and still produce healthy fruit. Grown in open fields without exposure to fertilizers or pesticides, The Prickly Pear Cactus contains small black seeds, from which the oil is extracted.
The oil has been used by generations of Berber women to fight the effects of dry desert conditions.
Prickly Pear Cactus Seed Oil is the newest beauty elixir from Morocco.
Morccan Elixir Prickly Pear Oil is harvested from wild and cultivated Cactus grown in the southern regions of Morocco. Our Cactus oil is processed by women’s Co-operatives using traditional methods of Cold Pressed Extraction. This method is very labor and time intensive, but it is necessary to preserve the nutrients in the oils which provide its beauty and health
Unfortunately, chemically-extracted prickly pear seed oil is available in the marketplace, involving solvent like hexane, which can cause adverse health effects and is hazardous to the water. In this process, extreme heat is used to evaporate the hexane, removing many valuable ingredients of the Prickly Pear Cactus Oil, such as natural antioxidants and vitamins. Other synthetic ingredients further degrade the quality of other commercial oils.
We produce fresh, cold-pressed prickly pear seed oil by treating the prickly pear seeds carefully,
NEVER USING CHEMICALS OR SYNTHETIC ADDITIVES, AND STICKING ONLY WITH WHAT IS 100% NATURAL AND EFFECTIVE.
Prickly pear seed oil has one of the highest amounts of essential fatty acids found in any natural beauty oil.
Prickly pear seed oil contains more than 88 percent unsaturated fatty acids, important for many different metabolic processes of the human body, which is not able to produce this acid itself.
Prickly Pear Cactus Oil also contains Tocopherols, making it a very effective natural antioxidant, and a warrior against free radicals, which promote the aging process: exposure to smoking, environmental poisons, ultraviolet rays, alcohol, drugs, ionizing radiation from our TVs and cell phones, stress and physical strain!
