Extracted from the seeds of the Castor plant, Castor Oil, also known as Palma Christi Oil, contains ricinoleic acid which helps replenish natural moisture lost while washing the hair and skin. Castor Oil is deeply hydrating, and can help restore bounce and shine to natural hair.
This carrier oil has a wonderful slippery texture, making it a great ingredient to add to lipsticks and lip balms. While Castor Oil is on the heavier side, it is a great choice for all skin types, even oily or teenage skin.
