Castor Oil - Certified Organic*
A popular and widely used cosmetic oil, Castor Oil is predominantly known for its ability to create a protective barrier on the skin, protecting it against harsh environmental conditions.
Castor Oil is rich in anti-oxidants, plus its anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce swelling and calm itchy skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Castor Oil is also one of the few carrier oils that can be used as an emulsifying agent. In cosmetics applications, Castor Oil can be used in creams & lotions, body butters, soaps and massage products. It’s also often used in hair care products due to its ability to create a rich, ‘fluffy’ texture and to help soften the scalp and treat dandruff.
