NATURAL BOTOX, MATURE, TIRED, DRY SKIN, BEST FOR NIGHT – Opuntia oil, 10ml BeEcco
The prickly pear is a plant from the cactus family that comes from Mexico. Harvesting these fruits takes place only a few days a year. The seed oil of this plant is the most expensive cosmetic oil in the world. The process of obtaining it is very time-consuming and inefficient due to the low oil content in the seeds of the prickly pear. For the production of 1 liter, one million seeds are needed from approx. 470 kg of fresh fruit (approx. 1 million pips).
