Skin feeling oily and slightly sticky. Perfect for wash-off products and scrubs
Organic castor oil is a multi-functional oil with several recommended uses! Our castor oil is a viscous oil, highly lubricating and with slow absorption. It is suited for products that will be washed off and/or require good lubrification such as liquid soaps, shower gels, facial cleansers and scrubs. Castor oil is naturally antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral which makes it even better for cleansing products. It can also be used in leave-on products but in smaller percentages. Castor oil is a humectant that attracts and locks moisture to the skin. Very emollient, it protects the skin from environmental factors and it is helpful for very dry and cracked skin. Castor oil is well-known, and traditionally used, as part of hair treatments against hair loss. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties, due to high amount of ricinoleic acid, help to prevent hair from falling and to stimulate healthy hair growth. Use it as a scalp oil some minutes before washing the hair. Castor oil helps to improve the hair follicle and is therefore also recommended for split ends and thin hair.
