Barbary Fig Fruit (scientific name = Opuntia Ficus Indica), oval shaped fleshy berries and are extremely appealing because of their beautiful colors. The delicious pulp tastes like sweat watermelon and contains many small brown seeds. However, given this fruit's multi-nutritional benefit, its seeds are precious beauty gems.

Barbary fig seed oil is derived by cold-pressing Barbary fig (opuntia ficus indica) fruits, though the oil makes up only 5% of each seed.The low yield per seed is the core reason the miraculous elixir is very expensive and valuable. It has been labeled one of the most pricey beauty oils by beauty enthusiast and in cosmetic industry, given that it takes approximately one ton of the oval shaped fruits to produce only a liter of its elixir and its whooping price tag is $1500 per liter. Mohamed Boujnah, a researcher from Morocco concludes that this miraculous potion is underpriced, having considered its rich vitamin e elements that make it a powerful antioxidant that heals and keeps the skin young and healthy.
