RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"

Today, organizations struggle to innovate; taking months or years to move from idea to implementation. The problem is compounded by the time it takes IT to order, provision, test and deploy applications and infrastructure. Test environments have to be nimble and development processes need to be aligned. By associating automation and continuous quality validation across hybrid delivery environments, IT can supercharge the business."

CloudEXPO Stories
The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
