Castor oil is thick and ultra hydrating for dry skin. It is far richer in vitamin E and fatty acids than most plant oils, making it an effective replenisher for skin and hair. This oil can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines as well as help relieve dryness, stimulate the production of collagen and boost elasticity.
Castor oil is excellent for dry and combination skin. It is a natural moisturizer with anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties, helping with acne, dry patches and other problem areas.
It can also be used in your hair to treat dandruff, moisturize dry hair, and help reduce breakage.
This oil is expeller pressed/filtered.
This oil can be used as-is or added to any DIY oil serum. Put a small amount of oil directly onto your fingers, apply to face, body and/or hair. Leave on and enjoy the nourishing benefits.
We recommend storing your oil in the provided aluminum bottle or an amber glass bottle with a dropper lid, like this one.
This is a safe natural oil, but some people can have allergic reactions to it, so we suggest testing it on a small patch of skin before regular use.

I bought this to use with the amber bottle with the serum pump, but unlike the grapeseed oil, it doesn't work so much with the castor oil because it's thicker. Unlike the grapeseed oil with its strong scent, castor oil has a netural scent and takes a bit longer to penetrate. I use the castor oil on my body and specifically on the dry ends of my hair in the front and back. The aluminum bottle it comes in can be reused as a good on-the-go or travel-size plastic-free way to take small amounts of liquid items. I would recommend using this type of oil without a pump to dispense because in my experience the oil is too thick and clogs up the pump. It's a plus that this oil is organic too.
