Castor oil is a thick, viscous oil derived from the seeds of the castor plant (Ricinus communis). Castor oil is used in skincare products for its moisture-rich and emollient properties. It can help soften and hydrate skin which makes it desirable in products like creams, lotions and lip balms. Castor oil is also used in cleansers and makeup removers because of its ability to dissolve makeup and impurities.


Ricinus Communis Seed (Castor) Oil


Castor oil is derived from the seeds of the castor bean plant, scientifically known as ricinus communis. It's native to Eastern Africa but is now cultivated in various regions around the world for its oil.


Castor oil is generally well-tolerated on skin and considered safe for most, but it can cause skin irritation in some.


Hydrates Skin  

Rich in ricinoleic acid, castor oil provides deep hydration, locking moisture into the skin to keep it soft and supple.

Reduces Acne  

Its antibacterial properties make it effective in reducing acne by keeping the skin clean and bacteria-free.

Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles  

Castor oil helps in diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thanks to its ability to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

Soothes Redness and Inflammation
