DESCRIPTION

Black Castor Oil is produced from the same plant as standard Castor oil. However, as the seeds are roasted before extraction, the oil has a dark burnt orange/reddish-brown colour with a stronger, more nutty aroma.

The slight ash content of the oil is said to offer additional benefits for hair - especially for those with thicker or more curly hair types.

Castor oil is actually soluble in alcohol and creates a unique solubility with beeswax, which is why it is used so much in balms and deodorants. It has a low molecular weight and so penetrates the skin easily, and acts as a softening agent. It is a greasy feeling oil with a lot of shine, but can feel sticky which is why it is used in lipsticks –  the added gloss enhances the appearance of the finish and its stickiness helps to keep the oil on your lips without feathering into fine lines. It is low comedogenic (1 out of 5) and non-irritating. It has an acanthotic activity, meaning it can help increase skin thickness.

Ricinoleic acid is soluble in alcohol (but not water) and oil. It acts as a humectant and helps make Castor a 'dry' oil as well as increasing its viscosity.

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

SUGGESTED USE

Skin: Moisture balance

Lip Balm/Stick: Gloss, adhesion

Jamaican black castor oil - satisfied customer

My order arrived within 2 days, the standard time and un damaged. Happy with delivery time. The product itself I have only used once but it looks as expected, it smells of black castor oil, I.e smells of ash and I am happy. The online purchase was also easy to follow and user friendly

Great product

It was hard to find black castor oil in new Zealand for a reasonable price but luckily I came across pure nature, I bought this oil a few months ago and have been using it since. Every night I apply it to my eyebrows and eyelashes, and I have noticed a lot of growth as my eyelashes are much longer, (I burnt some off a while ago with a candle accident and I thought they would never grow back) But it's amazing that after using this they have grown back. My tips of eyelashes are much longer then they have ever been and I think my eyebrows are a bit thicker. I really recommend this product.
