Prickly Pear (Opuntia Ficus Indica) Seed Oil
Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains higher concentrations (around 150%) of Vitamin E than in Argan Oil, which helps to promote smoother, brighter skin; as well as Vitamin K which helps to improve the appearance of dark spots, hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tones. This nutrient-rich, fast absorbing oil is also high in Linoleic Acid, which helps to maintain skin's supple look and brightens the complexion. Prickly Pear Carrier Oil penetrates deeply into the skin to provide intense hydration without clogging the pores. When used as a night serum, it reduces the appearance of dark spots and dark circles, making the skin appear visibly younger. This oil promotes elasticity and provides the skin a smoother, refined skin texture.
The naturally occurring antioxidants in Prickly Pear Seed Oil acts as a free radical scavenger, preventing them from causing damage that leads to signs of aging. It also has serious anti-inflammatory properties, helping wounds heal faster, and can even repair damage caused by UV rays and environmental pollution. Its nutrient rich content also helps promote shiny, moisturized, rejuvenated hair and nails.

BURITI (AGUAJE) OIL
Our organically crafted Buriti Oil or Aguaje Oil is cold-pressed from the Mauritia flexuosa trees, also known as the Moriche Palm, growing in swamp regions of South America - covering nearly all of central Brazil and the lowlands of southern Amazonia. It is one of the exotic wonders known by natives as tree of life because of oil's calming, soothing, and reviving properties. Buriti (Aguaje) Oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and contains Vitamins E and A which promotes great emollient properties, which help to rebuild, moisturize and rehydrate skin cells.
Buriti Oil is the richest source of natural beta-carotene (Vitamin A) that nature knows (even 5 times higher than Carrot Root Oil). When Vitamin A is applied topically to the skin, it converts into an active form of the vitamin called Retinol, a supercharged nutrient that can boost collagen production and cell turnover as well as neutralize free radicals from pollution and fade pigmentation. It softens the effects of sunburn and accelerates the healing or calms the skin after sunbathing.
It supplies the skin cells, penetrates all skin layers and keeps them perfectly moisturized. Perfect as a sunscreen and after-sun product, Buriti (Aguaje) Oil is one of the most powerful antioxidants known for its high capacity of cell renewal, and is great for anti-aging formulas, due to its ability to increase skin elasticity.
