Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a natural oil extracted from seeds of the fruit of the prickly pear, the cactus’ fruit, which is present in the hot and dry regions– such as Morocco. This cactus grows up to two meters high and needs little water. They produce beautiful bright yellow and pinkish flowers during the spring, then fruit in late summer.
This rare oil is used in cosmetics because of its composition, which is rich in active ingredients which are beneficial for the skin and the hair.
To obtain a liter of prickly pear oil by cold pressing, you need thirty kilos of seeds, or nearly a half ton of fruit!
The process of extracting this powerful oil from the seeds is a lengthy process that can take a few days. What makes it even rarer is that the fruit is available for just a few months each year. The seeds of the cactus fruit are collected and cold-pressed. But it is not that simple – half a ton of fruit is needed to make a litre of oil. That means that each seed contains 5% oil.
It is a combination of the above-mentioned factors that, when combined, make pure prickly pear oil one of the rarest and expensive cosmetic ingredients in the world. Morocco Lab sources this super oil from local producers and it is certified organic, which means there have been no artificial chemicals introduced into the growing process.

Prickly Pear Seed oil is expensive. The reason you get such a small amount for a hefty price tag is that the extraction process is tedious as tiny seeds need to be collected from the cactus fruit that is found locally in Morocco. The plant bears fruit for just a few months, which is why the window to extract the oil is small.
