Coming soon to havenessence at Piccadilly Market: Prickly Pear Seed Oil, aka Barbary Fig Seed Oil, Opuntia Oil, Opuntia Ficus Indica Seed Oil, Cactus Oil.
As reported by the BBC in 2009, this is a wonder skin and hair oil, relatively new to the western cosmetics industry, from the women’s co-operatives of Morocco. It takes approximately a ton of the tiny seeds to produce one litre of oil. It is rare, expensive, and hard to source as a genuine, virgin, cold-pressed, organic, fair trade product.
