Castor Oil Organic, Ricinus communis (6639 – 30ml) , also known as Ricinus Oil,

Castor Oil is quite unique among vegetable oils with its high content of ricinoleic acid. This component has a particular infinity with water which makes the oil deeply hydrating for dry skin.

Stimulating and detoxifying, Castor Oil easily penetrates the skin so is ideal as a carrier for essential oils and especially to support the immune system. It is also helpful to minimise scarring.

This is a pure natural therapeutic quality carrier oil from India. Many carrier oils have significant benefit for maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. See also About Carrier Oils.
