Castor Oil
CAS No. 8001-79-4


Castor Oil is an emollient oil extracted from the castor bean (technically, a seed as it's not part of the bean family). The castor bean contains ricin, a lethal protein, but it is denatured by heating during the oil extraction process, rendering it harmless.   

Traditionally, Castor Oil has been used as a release agent, lubricant  and binding agent in cosmetic formulations. Medicinally, it has been used as a laxative.  Rich in emollients to soften and soothe skin, castor oil, with its low molecular weight, is known to penetrate deeply into the epidermis.


Recommended Usage Rate: 1 - 100%
Appearance: Light yellow viscous oil
Method of Extraction: Expeller pressed, then refined to denature protein and reduce odor
Country of Origin: India
Molecular weight: 928 Daltons
Specific Gravity: 0.961
Required HLB: 14
SAP Value KOH: 0.180


INCI: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil

Wow, I can't say enough about my experiences with this company.
I have been happy with everything I've ordered and their pricing is very competitive but it is the customer service that sets Lotioncrafter apart from other companies.
Orders are processed and shipped quicker than any other company I've ordered from & each time I've received a refund for lower shipping costs before I even noticed!
Any questions I've had were answered right away & even received a phone call to explain things more personally.
Thank you so much for the great work!
