Certified Organic Castor Oil Cold Pressed
Castor oil is derived from the plant seeds of castor Ricinus communis, which is popular species belonging to the spurge family. Our organic castor oil cold pressed appears as a viscous clear liquid, with the male flower appearing pale in yellow while the female flower has a bright red color. Castor Oil is very nutrient-rich with one of the greatest forms of polyunsaturated acids which constitute 89% content of its fatty acid. Our organic castor oil cold pressed has a lot of skin and health advantages for its users.
Advantages of Using Organic Castor Oil Cold Pressed:
- Secures and provide hair moisture: Our castor oil is famous for locking in hair moisture as a result of its intense level of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Although, the fatty acids are incapable of penetrating the hair’s follicles, they nonetheless, latch onto the outside fiber of the hair, preventing any moisture from escaping. Castor oil also serves as a humectant that attracts and bring out water molecules from the open air to continually moisturize your hair
- Promotes hair quality: Castor oil is also good in helping to reduce frizz and adds shine to your hair. The oil conditions your hair to improve the quality and texture of your hair.
- Skin Hydration: Another advantage of our organic castor oil cold pressed is its ability to deeply penetrate the skin for the stimulation and production of collagen and elastin, both of which have the ability to keep skin soft & perfectly hydrated.
Castor oil has long been used traditionally as a laxative, and is gotten from the seeds of castor Ricinus communisplant. The oil is native primarily to Ethiopia and some parts of the Mediterranean, including the West Indies, Europe, India, Brazil, Europe, the USA and other parts of Africa.
The making process
Our castor oil is perfectly derived by the use of the cold pressing processing method, but which is subjected to relatively intense heating capacity measuring 140 degrees F, in order to make it more odorless. The good aspect of using the cold pressing method is that the oil’s nutrient is not much degraded when using heat.
*It’s important to note that being on this list doesn’t promise that it will work for your skin type.* Our skin will decide which oil it likes the most and remember that skin takes two weeks to turn over so anything that pops up between week 1-2 was probably already going to happen.
Like other substances that are high in fat, carrier oils have a limited shelf life. Meaning that eventually they will go bad. It’s important to store oils in their original air-tight containers in a cool, dark place, such as the pantry, to maximize shelf life.
