About This Product

Castor Oil, BP Grade (British Pharmacopeia)

Castor Oil is a viscous oil obtained from the seeds of the Ricinus communis L. plant. It is extracted through the cold-pressed method, ensuring the oil is pure and hexane-free. The oil has a clear to light-yellow appearance with a light fatty aroma.

Castor Oil is widely used in cosmetics due to its unique properties. It can help to create a protective barrier on the skin, making it an excellent choice for sensitive skin, eczema, and rashes. It is also commonly used in hair treatments and nail care products.

Castor Oil is a highly moisturizing oil that adds a protective barrier to the skin. It can help to improve the skin's elasticity, and its anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties can help to reduce swelling and calm itchy skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

This oil is also used in lipsticks, lip gloss, eye mascara, and other decorative cosmetics because it provides shine, and lubrication, and helps pigments adhere to the skin. It has good pigment-wetting properties and acts as a plasticizer for natural waxes.

Castor Oil is rich in antioxidants and is one of the thickest carrier oils, with a high ricinoleic acid (omega 9) content. Its humectant properties make it an excellent choice for skincare, haircare, and make-up products.
