The prickly pear is a cactus native to the Mediterranean basin. Prickly pear oil is extracted from its seeds, which produce only a tiny amount, making it a rare and valuable ingredient. Packed with vitamin E, sterols and omega-6, it protects the skin against free radicals and prevents skin aging. Its soothing properties help reduce the marks left by imperfections.

Opinions on Prickly Pear Oil.
Nassim Hamek, Product Development Manager at Typology, Shares His Opinion.
“Prickly pear oil is a source of many benefits for the skin. Its composition rich in antioxidant species such as vitamin E protects the epidermis from free radicals that cause oxidative stress and the premature appearance of signs of aging. Its use is particularly relevant to take care of dry and dehydrated skin and avoid skin slackening.

Claire H. (05/17/2020): “I use this oil for now as a treatment, in the morning and evening, to give my skin a boost! And it works! The skin is more beautiful, smoother and very well hydrated. I also use it in the morning when I use the night oil with cactus in the evening. Great combination! I've already praised it to my friends and family, especially my mom, they've all adopted it.”
Marine W. (06/26/2020) : “I haven't been using this oil for very long (about 10 days) and I can already see the initial results. I apply it in the evening on my face and bust, my skin absorbs it quickly enough, so it doesn't stay too oily afterwards, and it leaves a pleasant smell. As for the elasticity of the skin, I am quite satisfied because I start to see the results: my skin is visibly less marked. I am very satisfied with it, it is a simple product, without additional components, it is perfect.”
Laetitia M. (09/04/2020) : “I have dry and dehydrated skin. This vegetable oil that I use every night offers my skin optimal nutrition and a beautiful elasticity. I am very satisfied.”
Sabria G. (30/01/2020) : “I put it on in the evening, when I wake up my skin is bright and smooth. The small buttons are less apparent. This oil is also healing.
Chantal S. (28/03/2020) : “Super oil for mature skin. I put two drops in my moisturizer in the morning and evening. My skin is much more beautiful. I am thrilled with your products.”
