The Best Thing Since Argan Oil: Ormana’s Moroccan Prickly Pear Oil is the Super Antioxidant for Glowing, Airbrushed Skin

Luxury Moroccan Skincare Line Brings the Truest Form of Prickly Pear Oil to the U.S.

Los Angeles, Feb. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Farm-to-skin luxury skincare brand Ormana introduces the U.S. to Morocco’s most coveted “super antioxidant,” prickly pear oil. Known for its superior anti-aging properties, prickly pear oil (sometimes called barbary fig oil) is quickly gaining attention for its natural ability to target the major culprits responsible for aging and lackluster skin. Formulated in France and sourced directly from Morocco, Ormana blends the best of science, nature, and tradition to deliver consumers prickly pear oil in its truest form.

“In Morocco, many refer to the prickly pear cactus as the ‘miracle plant,’ thanks to its remarkable ability to thrive in even the harshest environments,” said Ghita Chakir, vice president of marketing for Ormana. “When properly extracted, the oil from this plant provides a surge of moisture and nutrients to the skin, revving up its natural defenses and improving overall texture.”

Ormana’s prickly pear oil targets two major culprits of aging skin: inflammation and slow cellular turnover. Armed with mega-antioxidants called betalains, along with Omega fatty acids, essential vitamins, and collagen stimulating amino acids, the ingredient is a master skin purifier, smoother, and soother.

“We directly farm and harvest our prickly pear oil the same way Moroccan women have been doing it for a hundred years, and we bottle it the very same day,” said Chakir. “It is a laborious process, but well worth the quality of the reward. Immediately after application, skin feels softer and exhibits a glowing luminescence. With regular use, dark spots and circles will brighten, elasticity is improved, and fine lines and inflammation take on a youthful, airbrushed appearance.”

While Moroccan argan oil has long been praised for its complexion benefits, prickly pear oil may be even more beneficial, thanks to an even greater concentration of antioxidants and nutrients. Farm-to-skin products containing Ormana’s prickly pear oil include the brand’s Night Cream, Anti-Aging Face Mask, Luxurious Face & Eye Lifting Serum, and the piece-de-resistance, Ormana’s ultra pure Precious Prickly Pear Oil.
