  • 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.

    Very happy with this product. Thickish and lovely to use. I tend to combine it with a simple moisturiser. Prompt shipping and good packaging.

    one of the oils that I have purchased from you was Castor oil (as recommended by a friend). I was hesitant initially as I haven't heard of castor oil being beneficial for the skin and I smelt a previous bottle from a friend that had a horrible aroma. Your castor oil was light and clear and a neutral scent. It was absorbed by my skin so quickly without leaving any residue. Next morning, my face almost looked like velvet. I will be recommending this oil to friends and family. Ps- love your clean brown bottles that the oils came in, all clearly labelled. Keep up the good work.

    I am very impressed with this product. It's warm sticky quality is excellent for lymphatic drainage and I use it on the face for specific sinus decongestant massage on myself and clients.
