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

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

The shealoe butter is to die for. It is great on skin and very dry hair. I mixed a tablespoon of glycerin and honey quat in the shealoe butter. Pure perfection!! The moisture and sheen it gives is excellent. Also, the service is great. Received my items prompt and secure.
