DESCRIPTION

Widely known for its therapeutic benefits, Castor oil is a popular ingredient in many cosmetics, soaps, textiles, medicines, and massage oils.

Castor oil's main claim to fame is its rich fatty acid content. These fatty acids - especially Omega 5 - help to restore the skin's natural moisture balance, preventing skin dryness and effectively moisturising the skin.
Note: Castor oil may have a drying effect on some skin types, so experimentation is advised.
Castor oil is also known to be rich in ricinoleic acid, which may help to combat athlete’s foot, ringworm, warts and other skin conditions. 

As this is a cold pressed oil, no solvents such as hexane were used in the extraction process.

SUGGESTED USE

Skin: Moisture balance

Great product!

Great quality product I use this as a face wash it freshens and hydrates my skin. Leaving it on for 10-15mins rinse and then moisturize as normal.

My friend used it on her tattoo and over just two days it hydrated and sped up the healing process tremendously.
