While our clinic was closed during the Covid lockdown we, (The Lux Clinic) took the opportunity to research and find a 100% pure and organic oil to help maintain, repair and nourish skin, including ageing skin and problematic skin such as acne, pigmentation and rosacea.
We came across Prickly Pear seed oil which derives from a fruit within the cactus family. This fruit grows in hot countries such as Indian, Tunisia and Morocco.
This amazing oil is not only great for your skin but also great for the planet as this plant grows anywhere hot and doesn’t need water!
We chose to partner with a farm in Morocco run by a women to create The Lux Pric0kly Pear Seed Oil. Traditionally in Morocco, women had to ensure the education of children and take care of the household, while being dependent on the income of their spouses. But now there are opportunities to enable rural women to gain financial independence and we are proud to help another women come out of the shadows and thus improve their quality of life.
Our Prickly Pear Seed oil is certified organic by ECOCERT, one of the most widespread certifying bodies in the world – organic production fair trade, and biodiversity.
Benefits of The Lux Prickly Pear Seed Oil
This oil contains more vitamin E than any other oil in the market – a huge 150% more than Argan oil.
Vitamin E acts as a natural anti-ageing treatment and promotes collagen production.
Vitamin K helps minimises the appearance of hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles.
Omega 6 & 9:
Omega 6 & 9 are antioxidants that protect skin against the sun and other damaging radicals that encourage wrinkles. In addition, these fatty acids help calm inflammation, helping to sooth redness including rosacea.
As this oil is the best in the market, it’s also the most expensive due to all the work it takes to produce the oil. Over 1 million Prickly Pear seeds are needed to make just 1 litre of oil. But we’ve managed to keep costs relatively low so we can retail this amazing oil for just £44.95 for a 30ml size bottle. This oil is an affordable, pure and organic choice compared to other products on the market that treat a variety of skin concerns.
Our Prickly Pear Seed Oil is perfect for all ages, genders and skin types.
Available to purchase in-clinic and via our online shop.
