Read on to discover why vitamin K1 is so effective for your skin.

BENEFITS OF VITAMIN K1 IN PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL

Prickly pear seed oil sounds prickly but is actually super soothing to the skin. The cold-pressed oil of “le et la” is made of the opuntia ficus-indica. This desert plant is sometimes called bunny ear because of its cute growth pattern. The colourful sweet fruits of the prickly pear are considered to be superfoods. In these fruits, you will find black seeds. From these seeds, the oil is produced by cold-pressing. It is a meticulous method to extract this oil. Each seed is handpicked from the pulp of the fruit, and only 5% of oil can be extracted from the seeds.

Prickly pear seed oil bursts with linoleic acid, Omega 6 and 9, amino acids, zinc, polyphenols, betalains, vitamin K, and vitamin E.
