Prickly Pear Serum is produced from the seeds of the prickly pear cactus which is found in the Moroccan Sahara desert.

Prickly Pear Serum is concentrated in the cactus’s seeds, and is rich in Vitamin E, Sterols and Omega 6 fatty acids. These elements help to protect and nourish your skin, keep it hydrated and help promote new cell growth. It transforms wrinkles and fine lines as well as brightening dark circles below the eyes.

Prickly Pear Serum is very light to the touch and is completely absorbed into the skin leaving no oily residue.

It provides a huge amount of moisture to skin cells and can be used as a facial moisturiser, body and bath oil, moisturising scrub (when mixed with salt or sugar), a hydrating toner (after cleansing) and as a cuticle product to soften and heal ragged cuticles.

Use it alongside Riyafa Argan Oil to enhance and beautify your more sensitive areas.

For your face: Riyafa Prickly Pear Serum is best used on a daily basis and because the oil is non-condegemic and naturally hydrating it’s safe to use during both your morning and evening skincare routine.

It’s perfect for very sensitive skin areas such as under your eyes. Also use it on your cuticles and on age spots and spider veins.

Follow these steps after cleansing your skin with Riyafa Savon Noir and Riyafa Ghassoul.

Apply 1 or 2 drops of the oil to your hands (Don’t use a cotton pad to avoid wasting any).

Massage the oil into your skin using your fingertips and working your fingers upwards to avoid pulling on your skin.

For even better results you can mix Riyafa Prickly Pear Serum with your favourite natural moisturizer or apply your moisturizer over the Riyafa Prickly Pear Serum.

For your nails and cuticles: Apply directly to your nails and massage in

For your hair: Apply Riyafa Prickly Pear Serum onto wet hair, massage in with your fingertips and leave for 20 minutes then wash out with a mild shampoo.
