Special, delicious, but difficult to collect fruit, prickly pear is also known for its nutritional value.
In recent years, however, we have discovered a new quality to it: the oil that comes from its seeds is a small miracle for the skin. Biodido decodes its properties.
The Prickly Pear :
Sweet and soft fruit on the inside, many small thorns on the outside that cause long hours of itching and severe pain to the careless, greedy person who will rush to taste it without being extremely cautious with the way to hold it (never bear-handed!). The prickly pear or nopal – Opuntia, in ancient Greek – belongs to the cactus family and thrives mainly in Tunisia, where there are hundreds of species.
Prickly Pear Oil: Liquid Gold
The oil from the prickly pear seeds is dense, it has a deep golden colour and a natural smell reminiscent of warm earth.
It is considered one of the most expensive oils in the world, and rightfully so since the production of a single litre of oil requires 25kg of seeds (or a ton of fruit).
The Benefits of Prickly Pear Oil
In addition to vitamin E, prickly pear oil contains vitamin K (acts on hyperpigmentation, and persistent dark circles), amino acids (favour the production of collagen and cell renewal), betaine, phytosterols and polyphenols (with proven anti-ageing and antioxidant activity), fatty acids, mainly linoleic and oleic (contribute to the elasticity of the skin, and, to a certain extent, to the restoration of skin firmness).
