Castor Oil is one of our favourite products. It's extremely versatile and has so many different uses. But what exactly is Castor and how can you incorporate it into your beauty routine?
Castor Oil is a vegetable oil that is extracted by cold pressing the beans or seeds of the castor plant, Ricinus Communis, if you want to be fancy!
It’s an incredibly, rich, thick textured oil, almost a honey like consistency. It is made up of a monounsaturated Omega 9 fatty acid called Ricinoleic Acid which makes up around 90% of the oil. It’s this unique composition that makes castor the super versatile oil we all love.
Castor is an incredibly popular ingredient in many skincare products. Like many plant oils, Castor is super moisturising and nourishing for skin.
Castor is useful for preventing water loss from the skin which causes dryness and flakiness. It creates a barrier on the skin locking in moisture.
Castor has powerful hair strengthening and nourishing properties. It smooths, and conditions as well as promoting gloss and shine.
Tame frizz and flyaways. As castor is very thick, you only need the smallest amount. You can smooth away any frizz from the ends of your hair and smooth out your hairline.
Cleanse and remove make up. Castor is an amazing cleansing oil, it literally melts away, dirt, grime and make up. Apply a small amount of oil to your skin then remove with a muslin cloth soaked in warm water to remove the oil. It will leave behind a light layer of oil to moisturise and protect the skin from water loss.
Condition, soothe and soften sore cuticles. Massage a drop of oil into the skin around your nails.
Provide a glossy sheen in cosmetics that require a shine like lip balms. Castor is a perfect ingredient for DIY beauty products. It works well in cleansing products, facial serums and products that require a natural shine like lip balms and gloss.
"Great product. Has completely changed my hair, I apply a small amount to my roots before I go to bed. (I sometimes massage a little into my eyebrows too) And my hair feels thicker and looks shinier. Really pleased with the price for what you get as well. There isn’t a bad smell about it either like other castor oils. Highly recommend!"
"I’ve only been using it for two weeks now, and I’ve mixed it with other oils, but it has made my hair look more shiny."
"So far I have only been using this product for a short time, on my eye-lashes and eye-brows, but feel that they are looking healthier and stronger."
"It's great on the skin thick yet not too oily. I will be buying again."
"Great, happy with the products. Using for hair growth."
