Details Ingredients & Additional Information
The Castor plant, Ricinus communis, is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. It belongs to a monotypic genus, Ricinus, and subtribe, Ricininae. Its seed is the castor bean which, despite its name, is not a true bean. Castor is indigenous to the southeastern Mediterranean Basin, Eastern Africa, and India, but is widespread throughout tropical regions (and widely grown elsewhere as an ornamental plant). Castor seed is the source of castor oil, which has a wide variety of uses.

Cosmetic Uses: The seeds contain between 40% and 60% oil that is rich in triglycerides. A great addition to soap making to increase foaming characteristics.

As expected January 8, 2013
Reviewer: Josh-D. S. Davis from Highland Village, TX United States  
A good, clear oil in a polyethylene bottle.  Cap is double secured with tape.  Product is clear, flows well, and adds lather to soap recipes.

Adds Density to Soaps November 5, 2012
Reviewer: Sanati from Denver, CO United States  
This "heavier weight oil" is thick & counter balances lighter oils like apricot kernel & coconut. Castor seed oil contains a high percentage of leolic acids, which are especially good for the skin.
