  • Our single-origin Prickly Pear Seed Oil is from a small independent producer who we visit annually.
  • The PÜRE Collection works only with one cooperative that we know pays a fair wage to all of its workers.
  • Our oil is not to be confused with oil from Mexico or oil from the cactus flower or fruit.
  • Prickly pear seeds are cold pressed to retain the oil’s incredibly high level of antioxidant vitamin E which helps to defend skin from ageing free radical damage, and vitamin K helping to repair and soften skin.

Prickly Pear Seed Oil


  1. Mark James

    Highly moisturising, non greasy, a little goes a long way, effects are very good, dark circles under eyes, almost gone, skin feels tighter. Great buy.

  2. Julie Aries

    I heard this was going to be the new ‘Argan Oil’ it has lots more vitamin E in it, I wanted to try it before it became trendy and the ‘in thing’ and mass produced and the market becomes flooded with it!
    Most impressed, I needed a very small amount, it is easily absorbed into my skin, it is quite a thick oil, but easily spreadable, It does leave your face oily or greasy.
    My skin feels much softer and the lines around my eyes are much less noticeable. I have been using for just 3 weeks to get these results. I prefer to use it at night and found that every other night is sufficient.
    There really is not much of a smell to it at all.
    This is the second product I have bought from this company, and I must applaud them for the quality of their products, and the customer service.

  3. Jane Rose

    Absorbs really quickly into the skin, a tiny amount is needed, I use under my eyes daily, a marked improvement.
    I also use on my elbows where I have always had dry skin, not any more!

  4. Jane

    I’m very happy with this serum and will purchase it again.

  5. Alice Withers

    I really like this. The Prickly Pear Serum is effective at smoothing out crow’s feet and my upper lip wrinkles, to the point that they have almost disappeared.
    I use it daily, but you only need use a few drops using the pipette, it is extremely hydrating for my skin.

  6. Rebecca R

    I use daily to moisturise my skin, it is quick to absorb and leaves no oily residue, I an good then to apply my makeup.
    My skin certainly does seemed to have become softer since using, and a lot less expensive than a lot of things out there to do the same job allegedly, but this has all the ingredients listed, all ONE of them, and it is Certified Organic – Enough Said.

  7. Betty Rios

    I love it, it is amazingly clear, and smooth on the skin. It goes on easily and is absorbed quickly. Because of the cost, I use it on my face only and have bought Argan oil for the rest of my body, if price was not an issue, it can no doubt be used for the body and hair as well.

  8. Yvonne Traimour

    I went to Marrakech last year and was thrilled to buy Argan Oil from the Riad I was staying at, the oil was more expensive than in the Souks, but I thought it was better, and I trusted the owner.
    I had almost run out and started my online search and came across The Pure Collection through Amazon. The reviews there were all great, and so I purchased it.
    Now if only I had found this Argan Oil the first time round! It makes the one from the Riad seems like vegetable oil!
    This Argan Oil has a much thicker consistency, it is not greasy and does not have that chip pan smell. So different.
    I was ripped off before, but as The Who said “I wont get fooled again’

  9. Anne Downey

    I read so much about Prickly Pear, hearing it was going to be the new Argan Oil, and decided to try it, I can see what all the fuss is about. my skin is so much softer, it feels really nourished, healthier too

  10. Ann Bolt

    My husband has discovered this Argan Oil much to my disgust, he now uses it daily too. He likes it as it has no smell, and it keeps his skin softer.
    I am going to hide the next bottle.

  11. Maureen Evans

    Not cheapest, but believe me I do not do cheap. There are plenty of blended watered down oils that are cheap. I wanted real, first pressed, verifiable Organic Argan Oil, and thats just what got, no flimsy promises or advertising spiel.
    No ‘Hydoprotein Acids’ “Lippolichin Madeupword pour le Vunerables’ or “Luminous Sensuality’ Just pure Argan Oil.
    Its great , it does just what it should.
    Top Marks for a Top Product.

  12. Ellen Blackman

    My experience with serums in general has not been over impressive, It seems in the past I hadn’t noticed a lot of difference for the money spent.
    This Prickly Pear Serum makes my skin feel so soft I use it after cleansing and before my night time moisturiser. I only use 2 drops, that is plenty for my face.
    It has a lovely fresh cactusy / (?)smell. At present it does seem to be the new trend after Argan Oil.

  13. B. Black

    This Prickly PearSerum instantly hydrates giving my skin a nice glow without leaving a sticky oil residue.
    There is however a bit of oiliness, understandable I guess as it’s an oil serum, but it does feel lighter than other oil serums.
    I have noticed that my skin has become more resilient and smoother in the 4 weeks that I have been using

  14. Risa Clarke

    Such a good buy, after years in believing Argan Oil was the oil for me, I have been converted.
    Prickly Pear seems to be even better, it has made my skin silky soft in such a short time, it really does hydrate the skin with just one or two drops.
    I prefer my products to be organic and always look for Certified Organic products, and also it is so easy to get caught into the trap of “blended oils” make sure that the Prickly Pear Serum you buy is not blended with cheap substitute oils.. Just saying

  15. Joyce Wassim

    I did initially buy this oil for my daily skin routine, and a friend mentioned it was great for hair too. I was a little cautious as it did seem very oily for hair, but I used just a couple of drops as a conditioner, and WOW, my hair has never looked so good, a lovely sheen to it now.
    I do not use it every time on my hair, I alternate between my normal conditioner.
    But pleased to discover its brilliance as hair conditioner too.

  16. Anne C

    I bought the large size and the packaging is so posh! The bottle itself is easy to grip, and it has a glass pipette to use just drops of oil, that is all you need. It seems much stronger and concentrated than other cheaper Argan Oils I have tried.
    I have had the bottle 3 months now, and used daily, there is still some left.

  17. Wilma Yates

    This is now my new must have, it is 100% natural and Pure, and Organic, its just great.

  18. T Phillips

    The Prickly Pear Serum instantly hydrates and gives my skin a very nice glow without leaving any commonly known overly sticky oil residue, there is a bit of oiliness as it is an oil serum, but it does feel lighter than other oil serums.
    It does seem to protect my skin from wind and cold dry air effectively as my skin hasn’t experienced any discomfort with dramatic temperature changes inside or out.
    As for the firming benefits, I honestly haven’t experienced that much firming or wrinkle improvement, but rather I have noticed that my skin has become more resilient and smoother.

  19. Brenda

    I really loved the ease of application for this product and how well it absorbs into your skin. I found it best to use after showering while skin is at its most absorbent, an added bonus is that it seems to last for ages and your skin feels so soft.
    Love the fact that it is Organic and has no additives.

  20. Sian

    I love this Prickly pear Seed Oil from The Pure Collection!
    I used this on my face and neck at night and noticed an almost immediate brightening and lightening effect. What was most pronounced was where I was NOT using it, the area of my upper chest remained sun damaged whilst my neck and face (areas that I used the Prickly Pear Oil) was baby soft and clear of sun damage. Highly recommend and will certainly be buying again!

  21. Bernie

    The Best!
    I have oily skin that does get dry when not properly moisturised.
    I have in the past used heavier face oils to combat this, but to no avail.
    I have since educated myself on the comedogenic properties of oils and found prickly pear is the highest in moisturising vitamin e and linoleic acid that will also moisturise and sink into the skin, that is available on the market.
    This is all I use as my moisturising step because it’s all I need.
    Certified Organic too. Just The Best!

  22. Joey F

    I initially purchased this Prickly Pear Oil to help with my dark under eye circles. Not only did it help significantly with those, I have also noticed a huge improvement in my overall complexion and my blemishes are slowly starting to disappear.

  23. Tyrona J

    I love this product and it has replaced my other moisturiser. It left my skin soft and radiant and while it did not eliminate fine lines completely, it certainly softened them to the point where they are less noticeable. On top of that, you only need few drops every night.

  24. T. Stevens

    I have sensitive skin and found this oil I can actually use on my face and leaves it a glow

  25. Skin lover

    The skincare and beauty industry today is similar to that of fast fashion – many questionable ethical practices, and of questionable quality.
    I have made a conscious effort to stop paying for cheap filler ingredients and marketing hype, and am impressed with The Pure Collection’s business philosophy and products.
    I want to know what I am buying and want to know it is safe.
    I Would recommend the Prickly Pear Serum, which is a super ingredient on its own.
    Cutting down my skincare routine to just these essentials did wonders for my sensitive skin. Less is definitely more, The Pure Collection’s products exemplify this.

  26. Becky

    I’m 51 and have tried countless numbers of face creams over the years. However this is the first winter in years that I’ve not had dry flakes of skin on my face – all thanks to a daily application of Prickly Pear Serum.

  27. Shell W

    It seems at last Prickly Pear is being recognised for the great skincare product it is. An expensive oil, but oh my goodness, so worth it. My skin has been transformed.

  28. T. Sawyer

    Fresh, light, clean, absorbs easily, super results. Glass dropper for easy application. A superb product. Came with free samples. Amazing brand and organic too

  29. Mavie Horral

    I did a lot of research before buying, and decided this is the best thing to use as it 100% Prickly Pear with nothing added or taken away, and also Certified Organic. (If you do not know what the difference is between Organic and CERTIFIED Organic, you should research, there is a HUGE difference). I have few skin issues and am pleased with my purchase

  30. Sherry Black

    I am now on my second bottle. This serum gives my skin moisture, plumpness and glow. It has reduced the dark bags under my eyes and they are now smoother and brighter. I no longer have to use a separate eye serum or cream. I am 64 years old with normal skin.

  31. Dani M

    Really nice and hydrating, yet not greasy and heavy, absorbs easily and quickly.
    and being Ecocert Organic is a comforting benefit.

  32. D. Huddleston

    I am absolutely loving this oil. I have combination skin, and this oil makes my skin glow and seems to help significantly with my occasional acne. I was looking at a few really expensive oils that had Prickly Pear as a main ingredient, and thought I would try it on its own. It does seem to live up to its hype and more. It has a really great nutty smell that is very clean and natural. I am now on my third bottle, although very little is actually needed for the face, I would say 4 drops day and night. It comes with a glass pipette.

  33. Beth Steinberg

    I have just started using this product for face moisturising. I love it! I do not use my day or night cream anymore, Prickly Pear Serum is enough. Being Organic is a great Plus too. My skin is superbly hydrated and smooth. Will continue to use this product and tell everyone about The Pure Collection!

  34. Happy Skincare

    I have been using Prickly Pear Seed oil for a couple of years now. I used to purchase from Kahina, but discovered The Pure Collection their Prickly Pear Serum is exactly the same product that is Certified Organic and is much less expensive and with free shipping. They also sent me free samples.

  35. Sophie Enders

    All natural, organic and clean, I am absolutely delighted. I refuse to use man made chemicals on my skin now.

  36. Barbara

    I purchased this product after reading that Nigella Lawson swears by Prickly Pear Seed oil for keeping her skin youthful looking! After a month of using it every day I can honestly say my skin is softer and brighter, I use it on my hands as well, and once a month on my hair to give it a great shine and condition. I used to use Argan Oil, which was great, but no comparison to this.

  37. Georgia

    Easily absorbed. Not greasy. Recommend

  38. Sasha

    Top quality oil. The best choice

  39. Wendy Tse

    Organic Prickly Pear Serum feels beautiful on my skin. Skin now feels hydrated and so much softer. I love the feel of this product although not so keen on the nutty smell, however I put up with this because the product feels so great on.

  40. Begum

    I have now been using this organic serum for two weeks and my skin feels amazing. I’m in my early 40s and my skin completely changed after giving birth, pigmentation and breakouts, I have struggled to find a product that helped, but this has, my face initially soaked it up! I use just a few drops day and night and I am now dewy and my skin has evened. So far so excellent!

  41. S. Goldstein

    You can (and I foolishly have) pay easily double for an oil of this quality, and not get the same results. I am a great believer of quality over hype. I have paid so much for so called ‘quality’ products that advertise as ‘pure’ and ‘clean’ and ‘natural’ only to find that they are full of man made chemicals I can’t even pronounce. So far nothing I have tried does not do what this prickly pear serum does. I am 58 years old and my skin has not looked so good in ages.. No more commercial products for me.

  42. I. Dunston

    Love this Prickly pear serum, my dark spots have faded and no more acne after using for three weeks My skin is now moisturised, and much less oily and super soft. I Will continue to purchase from the Pure collection.

  43. S Patel

    Prickly Pear is an exceptional product that really works very well

  44. Shereena

    A really top class product, and an honest product, as it says on the label, certified organic too. I am using this for under eyes and my face. It has made a big difference on my complexion.

  45. D. Smith

    Using for 10 days and no change yet.

  46. Jase

    This is my new skincare moisturiser. Easily absorbed and even better than Argan Oil.
    A little pricier than Argan Oil, but if it works, it is well worth it.

  47. Dasi

    A serum that is working.
    After using so many overpriced named brands, I switched to just a ‘plain oil’ It took me some research to decide to move away from those important sounding buzzwords that everyone seems so keen on. In hindsight, I wish I made my decision sooner.
    The Prickly pear oil is natural, clean, and it does the job of moisturizing my skin, I find its works particularly well for the lines around my eyes.
    My days go using products that use ingredients that I can not even pronounce are long gone.
    Forget all the hype.

  48. Penny

    Once upon a time Argan Oil was the in thing, now for sure this is the big thing, I am finding the Prickly Pear is much more intense on my skin, seems to work even harder for me. The viscosity is similar, less is needed. I now opt for the larger 30ml size as it saves me money. This company are onto big things, they know it too. All individually wrapped with a bow and a free sample with every order. Took 5 days to arrive, but this was over the Christmas holiday.

  49. Thelma

    I am so happy with my purchase !
    The prickly pear oil is wonderful, and I already can see its effects
    My skin is brighter, smoother, and glowing happily
    The packaging is the best I’ve come across, in days now that should come in as important. The brand is certified organic, which would mean that all the packaging would have to be recyclable.
    I will definitely purchase again and continue to explore the range of great clean products offered.

  50. Helen

    One has to be so careful now and look what you are buying.
    This brand is to be trusted, the Prickly Pear is 100%, no added perfumes or aromas or other oils. Organic, and everything that it should be.
    Postage was OK, took 4 days, the packaging is OK, a little wasteful but I recycle and know all is good.
    The oil is just so good, after using so many expensive oils on my face, I have come to realise that just one quality oil is all that one needs.

  51. Ferra

    I like the prickly pear oil very much, it is a great skin care product that I will definitely repurchase.
    I love natural oils and always and find that if I wet my skin with water beforehand the oil can be distributed better.
    The smell is woody, and perhaps not all will like that, however, I prefer un-perfumed products than hi fragrance with artificial smells.
    From me a full score, as well as it is organic!

  52. Charlie

    Sublime, Very happy with this product.
    It is a lightweight oil, and very moisturizing, and a little goes a long way.
    The best part is there are no breakouts or clogged pores.
    I have sensitive skin and usually end up broke out right away from oils of any kind, but I am a week in with this brand from Pure Collection and it’s been great.
    I have noticed less puffiness under my eyes.
    It does not seem to have much of a smell at all, and I am happy with that, because I just need a good moisturizer, and that is exactly what this is.

  53. Patricia

    Love this stuff!
    I put on this oil in the morning under my make up, and at night after washing my face.
    It is light enough that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily or wet.
    The Prickly pear absorbs easily and leaves skin so moist underneath. Its a real find.
    I LOVE supporting small independently owned businesses, especially in times like now where they need our help!
    HIGHLY recommend!

  54. Richard T.

    Unbelievably fantastic. I have a small dry itchy skin patch on my leg for years. It only flared by occasionally. I was told to try Prickly Pear oil which I reluctantly did. I applied it both in the morning and at night. At first I thought it a waste of time but after about a week, ten days, i noticed that both the itch and patch disappeared. I continue to use it, not sure if I need to continue or not, but I do not want to take any chances, so for now I continue and I am very pleased. I highly recommend it !

  55. Cecilia

    Having never tried this oil before I did however, read some interesting information about it, and thought I would give it a try.
    It feels amazing on my face. I use it both in morning and night.
    What a difference!
    I am 55, and the recent wind and rain here has been harsh on on my face and around my eyes. After 3 weeks of use the wrinkles around my eyes have smoothed out, and my cheeks do not have that mild red and dry roughness anymore.
    I highly recommend this to anyone.

  56. Phillipa

    I started looking into prickly pear seed oil after I read that Nigella Lawson uses it. I have followed her for a long time, and think she looks fantastic for someone who is 62. I am 58, and really into natural and organic products where I can get them for a good price, and just want to look good for my age without wearing lots of makeup or layering on too many different things. I
    I have been using Prickly Pear Seed Oil for about six months now and it’s fantastic. Just a drop on each cheek, one on the forehead, and one on the chin, and the area around the eyes, then blend in with your fingers does the trick.
    I don’t want silicones, fragrances, weird additives or anything that has the potential for my skin to break out. This prickly pear seed oil is pure, affordable, and it blends right into the skin. It does not interfere with makeup application either. I do not believe in any sort of magic in a bottle, you need to be healthy and take good basic care of yourself, that’s the only magic, but, if you are looking for a good moisturiser for your face that will not set you back too far financially, I highly recommend this product.

  57. Lolly

    Love it as a facial moisturiser. It is light, easily absorbed and a lit goes a long way. I like to dampen my face then apply a drop or two before putting on makeup

  58. Jordi V.

    Prickly Pear Seed Oil is fantastic. It fully hydrates without feeling or looking oily and the hydration lasts, unlike many other oils I have tried in the past.
    It is now an essential part of my morning and evening face care routine.
    I have very sensitive skin with psoriasis and rosacea and this oil is super gentle and non irritating.

  59. Rachel

    I love this oil, it is very rich and so just a little is needed.
    I use on my face, neck and around eyes under my make up for all day moisture.
    To me the days are gone for over priced potions that are full of toxic man-made chemicals that harm instead of enrich my skin.
    Well priced as well as excellent customer service and received free samples of other products

  60. Barbara L

    I ordered this upon the recommendation of a friend, we are both in our early 40s and concerned about the upkeep of our skin and appearance so when I saw how smooth and dewy her skin looked I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed.
    This is a light oil that goes along way.
    I did not find it had much fragrance at all which means to me it does not contain additional, unnecessary ingredients.

  61. Latifa

    I have severe allergies and I have to use natural products on my face with no additives or hidden chemicals or scents. I really like the benefits of this product and the fact that it comes from a single, natural source.
    I also have oily skin and the Prickly Pear oil absorbs quickly.
    Great knowing that it is 100% Organic plus all the packaging is 100% recyclable too.

  62. Chris Williams

    Placed a second order in the larger size, what great value. It takes very little product to do the trick, with continuous use you will notice a difference in fine lines especially around the eyes. I massage excess after application into my cuticles.

  63. Jay

    Great product. Excellent quality and a brand with a conscience that gives back to others.

  64. Maria Kelly

    Prickly pear seed oil is my ally against dry flaky skin.
    Before writing this review I wanted to try it for a week, and now I can assure you that I have had benefits. My skin is brighter and the small wrinkles seem to have smoothed out. I only use natural organic and vegan products because I am picky in my choices and desire the best, and like to know what I am putting on my skin.

  65. Ashia

    I have in the past tried some very expensive oils and I like this one the best, almost immediately I noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin under my eyes and my skin now feels and looks very hydrated. Would recommended to anyone!

  66. Billy B

    About time there is a brand that cares about the environment and gives back to charities too. This is one reason I purchased the Prickly Pear Serum from The Pure Collection as the packaging is 100% recyclable, the oil is Certified Organic and there is nothing else added to it, I felt safe in buying it knowing there were no additives. The oil itself is a great product, it is very economical as such a tiny amount is needed, I have dry skin around my nose, and within 3 days this oil helped, also around my eyes, the fine lines are fading. Quickly absorbs into the skin. I used to use Argan Oil, but found this much more effective.
