Castor Oil


Castor oil (Ricinus communis) is native to the tropical areas of Africa and India, famous for its oil-rich castor beans. It’s a pale-yellow liquid, extracted from the castor seeds. It’s classified as a type of triglyceride fatty acid, and almost 90 percent of its fatty acid content is a specific and rare compound called ricinoleic acid. Castor oil is produced by cold-pressing the seeds and subsequent clarification of the oil is by heat.

Castor oil is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant remedy that has been used for its medicinal and therapeutic benefits for centuries. Castor oil is commonly used in cosmetics, soaps, medicines, massage oils as well as many other everyday products.

Castor oil is loaded with minerals, proteins, vitamin E as well as other nutrients.
