Project Description

Organic prickly pear SEEDS OIL

Ficurinia prickly pear seeds oil is produced exclusively from organic Sicilian PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) prickly pear seeds from Etna.
The prickly pear seed contains 62% linoleic acid and 20% oleic acid. The prickly pear seeds oil is also rich in tocopherols (845 mg / liter) and essential fatty acids. Tocopherols give the oil its impressive antioxidant properties. Ficurinia guarantees the quality of the oil by performing a strictly cold pressing of the seeds. Being rich in vitamin E and sterol, Ficurinia prickly pear seeds oil protects the skin from free radicals by slowing down the aging and coloring of the skin.

Thanks to its characteristics, Ficurinia oil is an excellent soothing, nourishing and refreshing moisturizer for the skin. The beneficial properties of this oil are even higher than Argan oil (prickly pear oil contains 65% polyunsaturated fatty acids (nutrients) compared to 33% contained in Argan oil).

Thanks to the presence of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, lipids and vitamins, prickly pear oil is also used as a functional food.

Ingredients: organic PDO prickly pear seeds oil from Etna.
