MOOÏ USDA & COSMOS ECOCERT ORGANIC CERTIFIED PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL is a 100% pure and premium quality oil extracted by first cold pressure, which makes it highly concentrated in Tocopherols and essential fatty acids. This explains the amazing anti-aging benefits of our Certified organic prickly pear seed oil on your skin.
This precious oil has been used for centuries to treat and repair the skin. Extremely rich in vitamin E and brimming with antioxidants, the prickly pear seed oil is one of the most powerful, luxurious skin care organic ingredients.
The production of prickly pear seed oil is a labor intensive and extremely lengthy process manually handled by women from the rural area of Guelmim region in the south of Morocco. Our objective at Mooï is supporting and helping these women improving their families living conditions as well as giving them a keen sens of empowerment in a traditionally male-dominated society.
The prickly pear seeds are separated from the pulp of the fruit and are dried before being cold pressed in our lab. Our production process complies with the international standards.
