Castor oil has been around for a very long time, and has been widely used for medicinal purposes in its native lands spread across Africa, the Indian subcontinent and the Mediterranean region. Prized for its high viscosity and lubricating properties, Castor oil is a multi-tasking oil. Our oils are cold pressed with nothing added, nothing taken away!
100% organic, Castor oil is harvested by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant. Rich in fatty acids, it is a soothing, lubricating oil that is readily absorbed by the skin.
Castor oil, when applied to the skin, penetrates deeply and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It moisturizes by acting as a humectant to attract and lock moisture in the skin. Castor bean oil adds mildness and richness to soap and provides a conditioning, fluffy lather.
In hair care, castor oil is commonly used in hair conditioners and in hot oil treatments for brittle, damaged hair or hair loss. Castor oil coats the hair shaft and nourishes the cuticle layer, sealing in moisture and leaving the hair feeling soft and silky.
Apply daily on cleansed face and body as a treatment or moisturizer. Take a few drops and massage gently all over the face and body and allow the oil to soak in for 30mins. Cleanse with our gourmet soaps or body scrubs for smooth, soft skin. You may also leave it on overnight.
As a hair oil, massage gently into the scalp. Leave it to work its magic for an hour before washing off. You may warm it slightly if you wish. You may also leave it overnight.

For example pure, unrefined Coconut Oil can get easily rancid with slightest of water or moisture contamination. You need to make sure that the cap is closed tightly after each use.
