A Little History

Prickly pear vegetable oil (not to be confused with prickly pear macerate, much less concentrated in active ingredients), is a rare and precious vegetable oil. Also called "Hindi fig", the prickly pear is native to Latin America, but it also grows all around the Mediterranean basin. This fruit cactus produces very juicy and fragrant figs with incredible cosmetic properties.

Used for centuries by Berber women to protect their skin from the sun and wind, it turns out to be the vegetable oil par excellence for mature, dehydrated and damaged skin. Its rarity and price can be explained by the fact that it takes approximately 1 ton of fruit to obtain 1 liter of oil. It is all the more precious because its harvest is difficult: these cacti grow in semi-arid zones, very densely, which makes picking the fruits very tedious if you want to avoid thorns. The seeds are then separated from the pulp to be dried and pressed to finally obtain prickly pear oil.
