Castor Oil

Castor oil is derived from the seeds of the castor bean ricinus communis plant and is native to tropical areas of Africa and Asia. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acid, ricinoleic acid and rich in vitamin E.  It is thought to have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and skin moisturising properties. It is used to hydrate, sooth, detoxify, nourish and stimulate healthy skin regeneration. It is also used in the treatment of particular skin conditions, including dermatosis and psoriasis.

Skin Moisturiser

Castor oil penetrates deep into the skin, softens and hydrates it. The oil helps to promote the production of elastin and collagen, which help to delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a more youthful appearance .

Reduce Scar Tissue and Fades Blemishes

Regular application of castor oil can reduce the appearance of scars and fade blemishes. The fatty acids in the oil penetrate quickly into the scar tissue and promote the growth of healthy tissue around it, thus reducing the size of the scar itself .

Skin Issues

Castor oil has been used as a lip balm, for dry skin, sunburn, cracked heels, stretch marks, warts and moles, ringworm and removal of corns .
