Inside Timeless Serum – The Modern Skincare Used For Centuries
Prickly pear is a cactus looking plant found throughout Africa. It has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties and benefits for the skin. The Berber women of Morocco have labelled this the ‘miracle plant’, and have utilised the prickly pear seed oil as a secret to their beauty routine. Then Timeless Serum was inspired by the Berber women and uses the plant to create organic, modern skincare suitable for you. 

The Berber women and their skincare routine
The Aztecs previously used this plant to treat burns and the Native Americans to treat whooping cough. However, it is the Berber women of Morocco that sourced this glorious plant for its skin-loving benefits. Morocco produces far superior prickly pear compared with other countries.  The climate of southern Morocco, which is known for its year-round ambient temperature, abundant sunshine and low rainfall, is ideal for producing high-quality prickly pears. 

The Berbers are the indigenous peoples of North Africa and have always taken care of their beauty by using plants and fruits that grow in the region, including the prickly pear, which they call Aknari. The plant is a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients. 

The Berber women have used the plant for thousands of years as a refined secret to staying beautiful. Despite the dry desert and harsh living conditions, prickly pear seed means the Berber women have wrinkle free skin, a healthy glow, and youthful complexation. A true miracle ingredient.

How prickly pear is cultivated for the Timeless Serum
Prickly pear is sustainably sourced with quality at the forefront. Growing the plant and extracting the beneficial oil requires strong attention to detail and eco growing practices. Grown in climates with sunshine for most of the year – this plant is a modern skincare dream. 

The growers use a rejuvenation pruning technique, which involves the removal of old cactus bunches (rackets) making room for new. This helps facilitate fast and sustainable growth. Harvesting impacts the quality of the fruit. The harvest is traditionally done with a knife to keep part of the racket on the fruit. This ensures that the fruit maintains a high level of nutrients and vitamins while stored, and throughout the oil making process.  After harvesting, the seeds are either removed manually or with the use of a machine that separates it from the fruit. The seeds are then dried in the sun rather than an oven to maintain quality and prevent damage.  After drying, the seeds are pressed in cold-pressure machines to hold their nutrients.  The process is slow and it takes eight hours for the machine to produce only one litre of oil. 

The plant is also thinned to produce a better-quality product with more volume and nutrients throughout the process. The practices are eco-friendly, and by doing so, a top-quality ingredient is made to benefit the health of your skin. 

Unlike other farming practices which use plantations, we utilise prickly pear from its natural habitat, producing a pure and natural plant oil.

NACTYQUE values local community and fair trade. We work with the Berber communities in the deserts, valleys and mountains in Southwest Morocco, to collect prickly pear from its natural habitat. Through working closely with these people and cutting out the middleman we practice sustainable methods of farming – providing organic skincare that doesn’t cost the planet or people.
