Prickly pear seed oil is the Rolls Royce of skin oils
today. Many skin care experts are asking about it. With such a
limited supply, the price is sky high. The tiny seeds are only 5%
oil, so it takes a lot of them to get much oil.
This is so WRONG! So people are buying tiny bottles to use
directly on their skin. WRONG. So Wrong! Such a waste of a great
oil. You’d get just about the same benefit from any oil. We’ll
Behind the scenes. I do all the formulating. I’ve been
doing this for 16 years. I work with a spreadsheet. It takes
patience and a lot of trial and error. With this oil being so
expensive I didn’t want to make a lot of test batches. Luckily I got
it right on the first batch.
Test Batches: So when I make test batches, They are usually
a tiny batch. We have very precise scales (1/1000th of a gram) so we
can make sure when we scale up to a full size batch, we get the same
great product. We bought a gallon of this Prickly Pear Seed Oil and
decided to use as a primary ingredient and the secondary ingredient
was Virgin Argan Oil($150 a gallon). Also from the Moroccan desert.
We also added Hyaluronic acid and Allantoin.
My first reaction? I was blown away! Just because we spend
a lot of money on an ingredient doesn’t mean it is superior. In this
case though, Prickly Pear is something special.
This person was asking for a moisturizer recommendation. She knew
our products were superior but didn’t know why.
I was using a really expensive product from another company. I like
your creams and feel
sure that one of them would do the job. Susan
Our skin needs help deep down. Oils by themselves cannot
absorb deep into the skin. Why? Think about it, our skin is 65+%
water. Oil and water don’t mix.
A true moisturizer blends oils and water together. This is
done by mixing oils and water and vegetable waxes at specific
temperatures. The waxes bring the oils together into a true
moisturizer. This is very difficult to do when you are making
millions of jars at a time. It’s why big manufacturers use shortcut
Are other moisturizers true moisturizers? Mostly no. If you
see Sea Weed or Algin or xantham gum or guar chances are, it is not
a true moisturizer. It is thickened oils. And won’t absorb deeply.
But, when I apply an oil to the skin it feels moistened. That’s
true. Because it does sink down a few layers. And it does seal in
moisture until it evaporates or gets rubbed on our clothes. Our skin
is 15 to 30 layers thick. Deep down is where your collagen is.
Collagen is the substance that holds the whole body
together. It is found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons, where
it forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure. This is where
a good quality true moisturizer can help your skin’s structure.
Skin’s Structure: Yes as we age our collagen declines due
to loss of lipids. Our moisturizers help stop this decline.
Reverse Osmosis Purified Water: Reverse Osmosis is the gold
standard of water. Obviously we wanted fast absorption. Using a
water with any hard water components or contaminants would slow down
this absorption. Most companies use ‘purified’ water. Which may or
may not be as good. Might seem like a minor point, but I saw a huge
difference in the quality of our products when we switched from
‘just purified’ about 15 years ago. Now we only use R-O Water.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil (Opuntia ficus indica) A full 9%. Most
companies use a few drops and then they can legally call it after
those few drops. Or use an extract or the juice. This is the real
oil as a primary ingredient.
Hyaluronic acid serum. We use this ingredient correctly. Anything
much over 100 degrees F and this ingredient is gone. Most companies
just add the powder during production. So even though it is on the
label, it really isn’t there. First we make a serum in pure reverse
osmosis purified water. This takes a few days at a specific low
temperature. It turns into a jell/serum. Then we add the serum at
the end of the product mixing. When the temperature is below 100
degrees F. Any other way and the ingredient is ineffective. Very
difficult for big manufacturers to do when they are mixing and
pouring at high temperatures.
The magic of this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture; it’s
considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any
other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic
acid is able to hold up to six liters of water!
This is important with regard to aging because one of the hallmarks
of youthful skin is its moisture content.
As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness
Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the
same time strengthen skin’s barrier; that is, the outer layers of
your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and
plumper—all hallmarks of younger-looking skin! But, with hyaluronic
acid, that’s not all you get—there are many additional benefits
beyond just a more youthful appearance.
We know that just about everything, from sun damage and acne to
sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so
repairing skin’s barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like
hyaluronic acid (as detailed in this article), can go a long way
toward fixing, or at least minimizing, those issues, which means
it’s helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture isn’t an
issue for oily skin, and it’s gentle enough that it isn’t a problem
for sensitive skin.
Even better: Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense
against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation. Now that’s
what we call a multitasking anti-aging ingredient!
Emulsifying Wax, a vegetable wax when used at the right temperature
combines oils and water into a true fast absorbing moisturizer. This
is not xanthan gum or algin or seaweed. Those are thickeners and
make fake moisturizers.
Stearic Acid another vegetable wax that helps to make the
Allantoin: Allantoin is a naturally occurring nitrogenous compound
used as a skin conditioning agent.
Germall plus (diazolidinyl Urea, 3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate)
less than one percent. Vegetable derived. Proven Safe and
effective. Paraben Free.
Natural Essential Oils Rose Otto. Very expensive essential oil.
About a dollar a drop. The best Rose Otto comes from Bulgaria, which
is what we use.
pH neutral (pH 7) Why is this important? Practically every skin care
product on the market is acidic. We believe a lot of people are
suffering with an overuse syndrome of too much acid. Nature loves
neutral. Ask any experienced gardener how hard it is to grow
vegetables in acidic soil. Your blood is neutral. Most of your body
is. This whole story of the ‘acid mantle’ is unverifiable.
