Figue de Barbarie oil is known for its restructuring, nourishing and antioxidant properties. These properties give it anti-aging action, the perfect ally for mature skin so as to counter the actions of time. It will also appeal to a less mature skin to prevent the signs of aging. It is also an ideal daily care routine for dry skin, it will nourish and revitalize the skin. The qualities of the Figue de Barbarie oil makes it a suitable oil to be used as an anti stretch mark care routine. The crevices are nourished in depth, they become less contrasting and less apparent. The skin appears firmer, smooth and plumped.

Figue de Barbarie oil comes from the berry produced by the Prickly Pear cactus, a cactus found in the wild in many countries such as France or Madagascar. It is rather invasive and adapts very well in dry and hot areas. The fruit, when mature, is adorned with warm colours, ranging from orange to a purple through to a bright red. It takes no less than 30 kilos of seeds, found within the fruit, to make 1 liter of oil, that's represents about one ton of fruit. 

Our Figue de Barbarie (prickly pear) oil comes from Madagascar, made in France and certified Cosmos Organic by ECOCERT Greenlife according to the COSMOS standard. 

We extract the pure oil using a cold pressing method in order to preserve and keep all its natural properties. It is pure, 100% natural, unrefined and has not undergone any processing. It retrains its original smell.
