Barbary Fig (Opuntia Ficus-Indica Seed Oil)

The Barbary fig–also known as prickly pear–is a cactus and when eaten raw, the fruits have one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C of any fruit. In Sicily, a prickly pear-flavoured liqueur called “ficodi” is served like a medicinal aperitif.

The Barbary fig oil is also a powerful source of provitamin-A (all-trans Retinoic Acid) that helps your skin produce more healthy skin cells. The stem is a bountiful source of antioxidant compounds known as polyphenols, many of which are excellent visibly reducing signs of sensitised skin.

We include Barbary fig in our Renewing Face Oil to support skin elasticity and fight the appearance of fine lines.
