Prickly Pear Butter is a soft, smooth blend that integrates Prickly Pear Seed Oil and is composed of a high essential fatty acid content containing Omega 6 and 9. It is rich in the natural antioxidant Vitamin E and in amino acids, which are known to promote collagen production that promotes improved skin texture. With Vitamin K, this butter is known to enhance skin elasticity while brightening dark under-eye circles. The revitalizing and fortifying properties of this nourishing butter are known to quickly repair, soothe, and regenerate damage, resulting in skin, nails, and hair that look and feel softer, smoother, brighter, and clearer.
Common Uses: Used predominantly for skin care, Prickly Pear Butter is hailed for its protective and emollient properties. It is high in naturally-occurring Carotenoids, Vitamin C, and unique antioxidants and is often used as a natural moisturizing agent for the skin. This butter exhibits excellent spreadability, and upon application, it leaves a non-greasy, silky-smooth, satiny finish.

When adding a butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until its texture is soft enough to be incorporated into the final product. The melting point can range from 32°C to 35°C. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with the cream or lotion and drizzle the melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, thus small lab-scale batches are strongly recommended prior to any commercial manufacturing.
Recommended Storage: Please note that this butter should ideally be stored in a refrigerator to maintain its texture. It will become soft in warmer temperatures.
