These five essential elements explain why prickly pear serum is so effective
Prickly Pear Serum contains the highest percentage (88%) of unsaturated fatty acids of any beauty oil on the market.
The essential fatty acids in Prickly Pear Serum help restore the skin barrier and treat inflammatory disorders including dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.
Linoleic acid is crucial to the proper growth and development of the epidermis. It’s also essential for the synthesis of the long-chain ceramides needed to protect against dry skin.
Its acne-reducing properties keep outbreaks under control, and help soften the skin. Linoleic acid can even help heal cold sores and minor burns.
Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) reduces inflammation and can help prevent acne breakouts.
Oleic acid seals in moisture and helps other beneficial ingredients more easily penetrate the skin.
Palmitic acid has antioxidant and healing properties. It’s been shown to help with dermatitis and eczema. It’s occurs naturally in our skin, but diminishes with age.
Tocopherols (Vitamin E)
The Vitamin E in Prickly Pear Serum protects the skin and helps retain moisture. Prickly Pear Serum contains more natural Vitamin E than any other plant oil (150% more vitamin E than argan oil).
This naturally occurring antioxidant acts as a free radical scavenger, preventing the damage that leads to signs of aging. It’s got powerful anti-inflammatory properties, helping wounds heal faster and repairing the damage caused by UV rays, Blue light and environmental pollution.
Tocopherols protect the skin cells that make collagen and elastin (a protein that helps skin keep its shape) and can fade acne scars.
Prickly Pear Serum is also a good source of vitamins A, D, and K which support the skin’s natural barrier function and help skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and hyperpigmentation.
Phytosterols are similar to cholesterol which is an important element in keeping skin youthful and soft. Phytosterols help the skin retain moisture and promote collagen production reversing the effects of aging.
Phytosterols have strong antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Sterols help the skin retain moisture and leave a protective, anti-inflammatory, and reconstructive barrier on the skin. Sterols are known to be anti-pruritic which means they relive the itching associated with eczema and psoriasis.
Polyphenols have powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties and are important in combating oxidative stress (an imbalance between free radical production and the body’s ability to defend against them).
Polyphenols prevent skin damage from sunlight’s UV rays and can ameliorate adverse skin reactions following UV exposure including skin damage, erythema (redness or rash resulting from capillary congestion), and lipid peroxidation (oxidative deterioration of lipids).
