What is Prickly Pear Seed Oil?

Prickly Seed Oil is extracted from the prickly pear plant, also known as Opuntia Ficus-Indica, which is actually a member of the cactus family. And although the prickly pear plant does grow in certain parts of the United States, South America, Mexico, Africa, and even Australia, at BeYouthful, our oil is sourced from Morocco. Actually, it is from the very same Berber women’s cooperative that produces our best-selling Argan Oil. Once the seeds are all gathered by hand, it is then run through our world-class cold pressing machines to get only the purest oil possible. The oil is then sealed in an amber glass bottle to maintain quality until it reaches your doorstep, and well after it’s been opened.
