00 Prickly Pear Seed Oil

$23.00 USD

The precious and remarkable prickly pear fruit thrives in the harsh environment of the Saharan desert in Morocco. This challenging climate stimulates the fruit to produce a potent, nutrient-rich, dry oil that rejuvenates, firms and restores skin to uncover your most radiant and healthy-looking complexion.

It’s exceptionally rich in essential fatty acids, including Omega 3 and 6, that help to lubricate and soften skin. Powered by phytonutrients and antioxidants, the oil plumps the skin for a firmer and tighter look.

Regular use will help to rebalance the skin’s natural oil production, improve the skin tone and radiance, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as protect from environmental stressors.

The 00 Prickly Pear Seed Oil is 100% pure, organic, unrefined and cold-pressed. It is sourced from a cooperative in Morocco that directly benefits the local and rural community. The oil is manually extracted by local Berber women and made in small batches to ensure freshness; a true labour of love.

That has led to minimizing plastic packaging and working with NGOs.  In addition to not having any ingredients like parabens and phenoxyethanol, speak are also essential oil-free in facial care for those who are truly sensitive-skinned.

        The need for skincare suitable for sensitive skin began out of necessity 3 years ago for Eczema terrorised Nisa, so she began reading labels, investigating ingredients and sought to reduce the amount of products that could aggravate her condition. Still unsatisfied, she started making her own facial cleanser in powder form and shared it with friends and relatives, including business-minded Tiara. The tinder to speak’s flame was, unusually, a passing of a dear relative.  A grievous moment brought the founders together, which led to a conversation that sparked an idea and morphed into an obsession and finally the creation of speak in December 2017.
