Castor Oil BP is expeller-pressed from seed of Ricinus communis, and is virtually tasteless and odorless. While it has become synonymous with many other areas of wellness, castor oil is considered by many to be one of the finest natural skin emollients available today. Castor Oil is 100% pure and suitable for internal and external use.
Castor oil has many listed uses and many generations have sworn by the medical uses of Castor oil not only as a skin emoillent but as a pain releiver, laxative, labour inducer, lip balm and many more.
Castor oil is unique in that it has a very low molecular weight which allows it to penetrate deep into the skin where it moisturises from the inner layers out and conditions skin.
The main component of Castor oil is Ricinoleic acid which renowed for its analgesic and aniti-inflammatory properties hence its use as a topical painkiller.
If Castor oil is ingested it causes mild contractions in the lower intestine which helps relieve constipation, the contractions can also spread to the uterus hence its use as a labour inducer (this use must be followed under medical supervision).
