A young dynamic French company was created in 2019 by two naturopathic enthusiasts, who seek to essentially promote health ingredients and organic products as well as the aromatic or medicinal plants obtained from wild picking.
The SME offers a rare high-quality 100% organic prickly pear oil, obtained by first cold pressing of prickly pear seed. It is rare because to produce 1liter of oil, 30kg of seeds are needed which represents 1ton of prickly pears.
This rare oil has a high concentration of phytosterols (1000mg/100g of oil) recognised for their repairing properties of the skin, regeneration of the epidermis and soothing power, relieving skin reactive or discomfort-prone. Moreover, phytosterols help improve the elasticity of the skin and make it soften.
This oil is ultra rich in vitamin E (1750mg/100g of oil), natural antioxydant preservative which prevents its rancidity by free radicals and which, in cosmetic preparations as an active anti-inflammatory ingredient, soothes redness and irritation of the skin. In addition, it is an excellent anti-aging active ingredient particularly recommended for dry and mature skin and in repairing after-sun care.
In addition this oil contains plenty of fatty acids type Omega-6 (linoleic acid) and Omega-9 (oleic acid) involved in the production of cell membranes. At the skin level, it is part of the composition of ceramides which are part of the lipid cement, a real protective barrier of the epidermis.
Finally this natural oil is composed of oleic acid 25%, palmitic acid 12% and linoleic acid 57%, with nourishing and emollient properties very valued in cosmetics. It is rich in active ingredients that are beneficial for the skin (anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, anti-spots, anti-redness, moisturising, healing, regenerating).
The prickly pear oil is available in gift boxes flasks 15ml or 30ml which can be sold by retailers in specialised shops such as organic stores, drugstores, beauty aids shops or others.
As a bonus the company can also supply organic prickly pear seed oil in bulk (bottle 1L / can 3L or 20L) for use in cosmetics. The SME can also provide the partner with organic prickly pear powder in bulk (100g or more) that can be used as a cosmetic exfoliant for all skin types. This powder has long-term effects to make the skin smooth with a regular skin texture. It can also be used to carry out a maceration precious. The types of application products can be scrub, mask, gels, emulsions, balms, soaps.
The French SME is looking for retailers or wholesalers partners abroad, well established in the sector of cosmetics, interested in selling this rare organic prickly pear seed oil under distribution services agreements. The SME is also looking for manufacturers interested in distributing the products under their own brand or to use seed oil or seed powder to enrich their products.
