INCI: Opuntia ficus-indica

Prickly Pear oil (also known as Barbary Fig seed oil and Cactus oil), contains more natural Vitamin E than any other plant oil - even more than the amazing Argan oil. The oil is non-irritating and ideal for sensitive skin - it calms inflammation and rehydrates your skin. Its high Linoleic acid content allows the oil to absorb wonderfully and penetrate deeply, without leaving behind a greasy residue. 

Sizes: 10ml, 20ml, 30ml (with pipette top), 50ml, 100ml, 500ml or 1L.

This product is certified: Vegan and Beauty Without Cruelty.

Powerful ingredient

Prickly pear has such powerful benefits. It elevated my moisturiser. And has allowed my cream to be power packed. No real smell and a little goes a long way.


Absolutely fantastic product! I will never be without it again! I use it in my own face serum and I can already see a HUGE difference! Easily absorbs and leaves your face feeling so nourished and soft!

Prickly Pear oil

As always a very good quality product from Essentially Natural. I love working with it and it's one of my favourites.


Prickly Pear has been such a pleasure to work with! It has amazing properties suitable for all skin types. It is a thicker oil compared to what I am used to, but it has definitely given my skin the boost it needed.

Thank you Essentially Natural - you have become a dear friend!
