ZMcare Argan Oil & Prickly Pear Seed Oil to Revolutionize Beauty Marketplace
Argan oil and shea butter are the most sought-after ingredients

Not all gifts are wrapped in attractive sheets. Some appear in simple forms- like the precious drops of lovesome oil locked within seeds of amazing plants. And the prickly seed oil is indeed among these finest gifts from Mother Nature to us. Over the years, cosmetic chemists have harnessed the benefits of this gift to make fantastic beauty products.

You can call it Indian Fig Oil, Barbary Fig Oil or Prickly Seed Oil. It is stocked with essential fatty acids, active antioxidants, and vitamins that all have several important benefits for the skin, hair and even more. This special oil can be taken orally, used in cooking, applied topically, or simply added as an ingredient for making beauty products.

Prickly Pear Cactus plant is a member of the cactus family. It is a native of Mexico and the United States, but thrives more successfully in Morocco. They grow only as high as 0.3 to 2 meters and can flourish in arid environments. They produce very beautiful flowers in bright yellow and pink colors in the spring. It has pads, trunks, flowers, seeds, and of course, prickles as the name suggests.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.

Benefits of Prickly Seed Oil for the Skin

1.         Keeps the Skin Youthful Grace and Attacks Acne

Prickly seed oil contains essential components like vitamin E and omega 6 fatty acids that reduce inflammation and improves the elasticity of your skin. This, in turn, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, effectively slowing down skin aging and keeping the skin youthful. As a matter of fact, prickly seed oil has the highest amount of Vitamin E you'll find in seed oils. For decades, it has also been used successfully for treating inflammatory skin conditions. This property makes it not only an excellent way to treat acne but other common skin blemishes.

2.         Moisturizes the Skin

Applied topically on the skin, prickly seed oil not only keeps the skin from drying out but also retains and improves its moisture content. It's gets easily absorbed in by the skin and blends with the body's water mass to form an vital barricade to prevent water loss and significantly reduce dehydration of your skin. The fact that the oil is easily absorbed by the skin removes the risk of clogged skin pores.

3.         Shields the Skin

Another wonderful benefit of this special oil comes from its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties made possible by the high amount of polyphenols present in this oil. This enables it to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun's UV rays and free radicals, saving your skin from the threat of hyperpigmentation, aging rapidly, and even burns. It is also true that they can also inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

4.         Tightens Skin Pores and Enhance the Tone of Your Skin

So don't let loose pores hold you down again, try this mystic oil. Vitamin K equally brightens dark spots and under-eye circles to create an evenly toned skin.

5.         Unlocks the Goodness of Omega 6 Fatty Acids

When the hair becomes greasy it begins to attract dirt and dust particles, but since this oil is readily absorbed, you've got nothing to worry about!

3.         Healthier Hair
