About our Prickly Pear Seed Oil
- 100% Certified Organic from Agadir in Morocco.
- 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 Prickly Pear Seed 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, and vitamin K helping to repair and soften the skin.
- Prickly Pear Seed Oil is anti-inflammatory, barrier boosting and hydrating
- It is extremely high in essential fatty acids, including omega 6 and 9 and also the natural antioxidant vitamin E helping calm inflammation and redness which is especially great for those prone to rosacea.
- The oil easily absorbs into your skin and penetrates quickly without leaving any greasy residue.
- It is rich in amino acids, which may help stimulate collagen production.
- Prickly Pear contains vitamin K, which helps to brighten hyperpigmentation areas such as dark spots and is beneficial for under-eye dark circles.
- Containing high levels of linoleic acid (Omega 6) that replenishes lost lipids within skin, helping moisturise and restore elasticity.
- Prickly Pear contains the highest amount of betalains, these are pigments found in plants, these super antioxidant pigments help to protect skin from various types of damaging radicals which can encourage ageing.
- Sufferers of acne may benefit from use of this oil as it helps prevent sebum from hardening and preventing blocked pores which can lead to acne.

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 !
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!
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.
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!
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 2 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.
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.
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.
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.
Using for 10 days and no change yet.

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.

Prickly Pear is an exceptional product that really works very well.
Ian 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.

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.
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!

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.
Top quality oil. The best choice
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. Easily absorbed. Not greasy. Recommend
All natural, organic and clean, I am absolutely delighted. I refuse to use man made chemicals on my skin now.

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.
Happy Skincare –
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!

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.

Being Ecocert Certifed Organic is a comforting benefit.

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. Really nice and hydrating, yet not greasy and heavy, absorbs easily and quickly.
Sherry Black –
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.

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

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.

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.
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.
