About Queen Odelia

Queen Odelia and Prickly Pear Seed Oil

The Queen Odelia Prickly Pear Seed Oil based products are held to the highest standards for skin enhancement. Prickly pear based serum has long been the object of the Queen Odelia dermatologists’ fascination. They were successful in developing a formula by closely examining the unique properties that the Prickly Pear and other dessert flowers possess.

The objective was to replicate these miracle plants’ remarkable ability to survive long droughts and produce fruits in the wild without fertilizers or pesticides. The Prickly Pear is widely known as a dessert fruit that contains small black seeds from which the precious oil is extracted. This oil was used by nomadic women for generations to fend off the effects of the dry desert conditions on their skin, despite the intensive extraction process

Originating in Morocco, Prickly Pear Seed oil, Aknari, or Barbary Fig Seed oil is packed with vitamin E and high levels of Linoleic acid. These super antioxidants work together to tighten and protect mature skin from free radicals that loosen the skin and give it the unwanted texture people want to avoid.

PPSO is easily absorbed, which makes the skin lighter and brighter. Regular use of PPSO based products helps the skin retain elasticity and receive important natural moisturizers. PPSO’s antioxidant activity protects the skin from all irritation, and its anti-stress properties fight signs of aging from the sun.

After conducting meticulous research, the Queen Odelia team of dermatologists found that Prickly Pear Seed Oil (or PPSO) holds an abnormally high concentration of Tocopherol (Vitamin E) as well as other fatty acids (i.e. Linoleic Acid or Omega 6) which make this oil the most effective skin care treatment of its kind. PPSO is extremely rich in minerals, amino acids, and contains more Tocopherol (Vitamin E) than any other oil available in the beauty care market – almost 150% more Tocopherol than Argan oil. These components paired with the minerals and salts found in the arid desserts surrounding the Dead Sea, as found in all Queen Odelia products have proven to result with unprecedented success.
