Heritage & Terre
The story of Héritage & Terre is one of passion, discovery, and a deep affinity for the age-old, natural oils due to the unique climate and soil condition in Moroccan. Only in Morocco does the prickly pear have its exquisite benefit due to this climate and nutrient-rich soil. The hot summers and the cold winters with mild humidity produce fruit with the highest nutrient potency.
The result is a cactus plant (Opuntia ficus-indica) that produces a sweet, juicy fruit with seeds that are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, Vitamin E, sterol and oligo elements. The seeds are the source of the most potent oil on earth today, built with the most powerful natural antioxidants and anti-wrinkle compound in the world.
Moroccan women have passed this beauty tradition down from mother to daughter and from daughter to grand-daughter over centuries. And now it is available to you!
The highest Quality
Other lower quality cactus oils use maceration or chemical extraction. This explains the wide range of prices for cactus oil in the skin care industry.
Our Cactus Oil is the purest and therefore most beneficial oil for your skin.
The highest quality is our number one priority at H&T. We import only prickly pear seed oil from Morocco, considered to be the “la crème de la crème” of all cactus oil. All our oil comes from organic farms, ECOCERT certified according to European organic regulation and meeting NOP standards (National Organic Program) of the United States.
Our oil is the highest quality beauty product
Artificial oil Free
Our prickly pear seeds are pressed only once. This means that our oil is obtained by the first cold press, preserving all actives elements of the oil.
It is very important to understand the difference between cold press extraction versus macerated or chemical extraction.
That will also explain the wild range of price of the cactus oil in the skin care industry.
