INCI: Ricinus Communis Seed Oil

An excellent oil to use in massage, hair care, cleansing and baby products. Nourishing and hydrating, this oil is best blended with other oils to fully appreciate its benefits and improve skin feel.


Castor oil is a clear to pale yellow oil derived from cold-pressed castor seeds. Although the seed of the castor plant contains lethal protein ricin, the extraction process denatures this protein, leaving an oil that’s safe to use. Our organic castor oil is very stable and takes a long time to oxidise.

Castor oil is a natural emollient, making it a fantastic soother and softener for dry, damaged skin. You can also use organic castor oil in cosmetic cleansing products, as it has strong cleansing properties and the ability to bind oil and water together.

This oil is known for its protective qualities. As well as being applied to the skin, it is often used to repair and replenish damaged hair or strengthen fragile nails. Incorporate it into a range of homemade cosmetics for excellent results.


Do not use castor oil during pregnancy as it may potentially cause uterine contractions.

Cosmetic Functions:

The Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng) lists castor oil as “fragrance”, “perfuming”, and “skin conditioning”.



  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Organic castor oil is oil-soluble and unsuitable for use in water-only products. However, small amounts can be used in water-based gels that will hold the oil in suspension.
  • This oil is heat stable and can be used in the fat stage (stage 1) when creating creams and lotions.

Add some slip to castor oil by blending it with other carrier oils such as jojoba oil, sweet almond oil or apricot kernel oil.

Benefits of Organic Castor Oil for Skin

  • Emollient — softens and soothes the skin, keeping it supple.
  • Incredibly nourishing and hydrating, especially on dry or damaged skin.
  • High in vitamin E and essential unsaturated fatty acids like omega-6.
  • It is absorbed by the skin slowly, making it an excellent ingredient in massage creams and after-sport treatments. Use up to 15% in massage products for the perfect blend.
  • Its natural cleansing properties make organic castor oil ideal for use in cleansing oils, lotions, and gels. Wipes off easily with a damp cloth, leaving skin feeling soft and refreshed.
  • Lubricates the skin while cleansing to form a protective barrier. This makes it perfect for use in baby products like nappy rash balm.
  • Increases skin flexibility, helping to keep signs of premature ageing at bay.
  • Adds shine to the skin and lips — try using it in lip balms or face and body oils for glowing skin.
  • It is often used in soap making as it helps to stabilise the lather when it has been saponified.
  • Easy to use in face and body oils, lotions, massage treatments, serums, healing balms, and more.

Benefits of Organic Castor Oil for Hair

  • Organic castor oil helps to lock moisture into the hair shaft.
  • Add to hair packs and conditioners to soften the hair and add shine.

  • It can be used as a soothing scalp treatment.

  • Repairs and replenishes dry or damaged hair.

  • Strengthens and thickens the hair.

  • Thickens brows and lashes.
