  • Botanical Name: Ricinus communis
  • Colour: Light Yellow
  • Method of Extraction: Cold-pressed, BP grade, hexane-free

Castor oil has a botanical name of Ricinus communis and is very light yellow in appearance. Castor oil is extracted via a cold press process. It is commonly used in soaps, conditioners and balms due to its ability to create a rich, fluffy texture.

Apart from its common use as an emulsifying agent, castor oil is very absorbent and creates a natural barrier on the skin, which can help guard it from harsh conditions.

Applying castor oil on sensitive skin areas such as the neck and under the eyes can actually reduce the appearance of small wrinkles and fine lines. It should be applied delicately and should not be used during pregnancy.

WARNING: Castor oil contains high levels of ricinoleic acid which can cause an allergic reaction on some people's skin. Your skin may be prone to irritation. If your skin is only mildly irritated by castor oil, you may be slightly itchy or develop mildly red skin. A severe irritation may result in an itchy and uncomfortable rash or even hives. It is recommended that a patch test be done first on a small sensitive area of the skin to determine if you're allergic to castor oil or not.

    I was so pleased to find cold pressed hexane free castor oil at a great price and option to buy in bulk. I love it and add it to all my salves to increase absorption.

    Great product and able to buy larger amounts. Response and shipping were very time efficient. Can use as carrier oil to add other ingredients. Tracking was provided giving the ability to know exactly when your shipment was going to be delivered.

    I’ve never used castor oil before, but my experience thus far with the N-Essentials version has been great! I bought it for use in a DIY shampoo, but have thoroughly enjoyed it as a skin oil, both alone or in combination with a little rose hip oil. It’s of a high quality and of course, such an asset to be able to purchase in bulk for a more than reasonable price!

    This is the first time I ordered from N Essentials. After compared different online store I decided to give N Essentials a try which I am very happy. I always have dandruff problem and need to wash my head with anti dandruff shampoo twice a day and if i skip, i will have very itchy head. I leave the castor oil on my head for few hours before i wash it off. I feel slightly itchy on my head after that but the next day i realize my itchy head has reduce and i didn't use the anti dandruff shampoo. I put the oil on for few more times after that and now i only need to wash with anti dandruff shampoo once a day and sometimes i even skip it without any itchy for whole day. love the product!

    A great quality oil - I'm so glad that I've found a cold-pressed castor oil that is hexane free and not solvent extracted. I use it in my mix of oils for oil cleansing!

    Second purchase which I upgraded to a larger size. Better being warmed but seems to assist even if in a hurry and putting it on straight from bottle. Great thickish consistency that can be easily cut down. Excellent soother for wind burns or a day in harsh conditions.
