Garden of Wisdom

100% Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil


Suitable for Vegetarians


Garden of Wisdom 100% Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil, also known as Cactus Oil or Barbary Fig Seed Oil, is an excellent multi-purpose face oil with superb moisturising properties.

Like Argan Oil, Prickly Pear Seed Oil is native to Morocco as well as India but unlike Argan Oil, Prickly Pear Oil has the richest source of vitamin E and is full of essential fatty acids as well as antioxidants and polyphenols.

Benefits of 100% Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil:

  • Contains super antioxidants which protect skin against ageing due to damaging radicals
  • A rich blend of omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids help replenish lipids to restore skin elasticity
  • Essential fatty acids help to calm down inflammation making it ideal for rosacea-prone skin
  • Its Vitamin K content helps to brighten age spots and hyperpigmentation areas
  • May improve sebum texture preventing acne
  • Superb for dull, lack-lustre hair
  • Strengthens nails making them less prone to breakage
  • Cold pressed and gently refined

All Garden of Wisdom products are cruelty free, suitable for vegetarians and free from alcohol and silicones. Serum bottles are made of PET which are 100% recyclable. Please dispose of the dispenser in your general waste.
