Prickly pear oil is our top recommendation for fighting wrinkles, crow's feet, and fine lines. This oil is painstakingly extracted from the seeds of the prickly pear cactus, also known as the Opuntia Ficus Indica, through a meticulous process involving manual labor.
So, why is prickly pear oil a favorite amongst our anti-aging products? The answer lies in its composition - no other natural oil boasts a higher vitamin E content. This beneficial oil is also rich in essential fatty acids and a substantial quantity of vitamin K. The prickly pear oil from You Madu is quickly absorbed by the skin, providing a soft and smooth texture. It stimulates collagen production, thereby restoring skin elasticity.
This oil is 100% pure, and cold pressed. Absolutely no chemicals or heat have been applied during its production process. Simply massaging a few drops into the skin daily is all you need.
You Madu's prickly pear oil can be used in the following ways:
- Anti-aging agent: Add a few drops to your skin and massage gently. Use in the evening before bed and/or in the morning after waking up.
- Face serum: To improve skin elasticity, create a mixture using 25 ml of prickly pear oil, 25 ml of jojoba oil, and optionally, 2 drops of lavender oil. Apply a few drops to your face and let it absorb gently.
- Dark circle reduction: Combat dark circles under your eyes by mixing 4 ml of prickly pear oil with two drops of rosehip oil. Gently massage this mixture around your eyes before bedtime.
- Hair mask: Stimulate scalp circulation and nourish your hair with a blend of prickly pear oil, sweet almond oil, and coconut oil in equal parts. Massage it gently onto your scalp, leave it on for 30 minutes, and then rinse gently with a natural shampoo.
