Perhaps you’ve been to Morocco and you were lucky enough to have experienced our Moroccan hammam beauty ritual and now you want to recreate this wonderful experience (and in our opinion, this is the ultimate self-care beauty ritual you can give to yourself). We can help you do that!
In Morocco women and men go to the hammam at least once a week to cleanse their mind, body, and soul. The hammam is a bathhouse, similar to the Turkish bath, where you go to get a whole body scrub to remove the dead skin, cleanse yourself and get a body massage.
When I go to Morocco I overindulge in this traditional beauty ritual and When I come back to my home in New York I enjoy recreating it because my body and soul miss it.
At KENZA International Beauty we provide you with the best Moroccan beauty products at affordable prices for you to enjoy this experience at home.
We have now the perfect Moroccan beauty ritual set for you that we will offer at a special price of $109 ($166 value) for a limited time.
WHAT IS PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL (Barbary Fig Oil, Cactus Oil, Aknari or Opuntia Ficus Indica)?
The Opuntia Ficus Indica plant is a member of the cactus family and is commonly known as Prickly Pear (also known as India Fig Opuntia or Barbary Fig). Native to Mexico, it can now be found in various arid and semi-arid areas of the world such as Morocco. Also called the miracle plant for its ability to survive during long droughts and still produce healthy fruits, the cactus plant grows in open fields without exposure to fertilizers or pesticides.
The Prickly Pear fruit contains numerous small black seeds from which the precious Prickly Pear Seed Oil is extracted. The oil has been used by generations of Berber women to fend off the effects of dry desert conditions.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the most expensive beauty oils in the world. Its production requires a labor intensive and time consuming (up to four days) process manually handled by Moroccan women at cooperatives. The Prickly Pear seeds are separated from the pulp and are then dried before being cold pressed. Because each seed contains only 5% of oil, up to 60 lbs. of seeds (and a half a ton of fruits) are required to yield about 34oz. of oil.
Composition & Benefits
Prickly Pear Seed Oil has a high concentration of Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and essential fatty acids (Linoleic Acid or Omega 6). This oil contains more Tocopherol than any other oil available in the beauty care market (almost 150% more Tocopherol than Argan oil).”Tocopherols are molecules with strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties.”*
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a potent non-greasy treatment (due to its high level of antioxidant and fatty acids) that is easily absorbed by the skin. Among its many natural benefits, KENZA Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil:
– protects against free radicals ( highest level of vitamin E)
– nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin
– tightens pores for a smoother and refined skin texture
– prevents premature aging and wrinkles formation
– brightens dark spots and under-eye shadows
– erases hyperpigmentation spots
KENZA Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil is ideal to use as a night serum for an intense treatment of the face, neck, and décolleté that leaves your skin with a healthy natural glow.
