What is Castor Oil?
Known as one of nature’s best kept secrets, Castor oil is a vegetable oil extracted from castor beans. A pure Castor oil is a colorless to very pale-yellow liquid with a distinct taste and odor. Castor oil is well known as a source of ricinoleic acid which is a powerful natural remedy in many areas. By serving as a source of ricinoleic acid and several other fatty acids, castor oil has some properties that make it a useful skincare and hair product.
What Are the Benefits of Castor Oil?
- Deeply Moisturizes Skin and Boosts Wound Healing
As you probably already know, beauty is more than skin deep; the health of your skin is often a reflection of the health of your gut, immune system and hormonal balance. The real price of beauty is steep, and loading your skin with chemical ingredients found in store-bought skin care products usually only makes irritation worse. Castor oil is completely natural and free of synthetic chemicals (if you use pure 100 percent pure castor oil, of course), yet it’s rich in skin-boosting ingredients like fatty acids. Applying castor oil to dry or irritated skin can really help to discourage dryness and keep it well moisturized.
Castor oil can also help with wound healing thanks to its moisturizing as well as antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. In vitro research has shown that castor oil is effective against many types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
- Helps Dry, Irritated, Sun-Burnt or Acne-Prone Skin
Castor oil can be used to moisturize dry skin. Being highly viscous, the oil stays put, and penetrates deep into the skin tissue and nourishes it with fatty acids. Many pricey commercial moisturizers contain castor oil, but you can get all its benefits from direct application.
Castor oil is a great natural home remedy for fighting mild acne. As it penetrates deep into the skin, it fights bacteria overgrowth that can clog pores, while softening and hydrating irritated skin at the same time.
- Lowers Symptoms of Arthritis
Castor oil is often used as a natural treatment for arthritis pain, joint swelling and inflammation. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties that make it an ideal massage oil that can be applied to aching joints, muscles or tissue. Observational studies have even shown that topical application of ricinoleic acid (the main component of castor oil), “exerts remarkable analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.”
- Boosts Hair Growth, Texture, Fullness and Color
CSCS Cosmetics Pure Organic Castor Oil helps minimize hair loss and moisturizes dry skin to create a healthier balance of natural face oils and thicker, stronger hair. By nourishing hair follicles deep within the roots, castor oil naturally encourages the repair of damaged hair, strengthening it and helping it grow longer, thicker and frizz free.
There are hundreds of testimonials from people who used castor oil to increase their hair growth 3-5 times the normal rate. The germicidal, insecticidal, and fungicidal properties of ricin and ricinoleic acid present in castor oil protect the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections, the two prime causes of hair loss. In addition to this, the fatty acids in it nourish the hair and prevent the scalp from drying by retaining moisture. In addition, it also prevents premature graying of hair and dandruff and promotes conditioning.
If you have scanty eyebrows, the oil can be applied with the tip of a cotton ear bud to the eyebrow ridge. Hair will grow denser there, and you can shape the eyebrows as usual.
Castor oil can be applied in areas that have lost hair due to alopecia. The anti-inflammatory property of the oil may work against this autoimmune disorder.
Castor oil can be used to enhance the natural color of your hair and make it look rich and thick. This oil is a humectant, locking in moisture. When applied on the hair, it preserves the moisture in the hair shaft and makes each strand thicker and darker.
Are All Castor Oil Product the Same?
The simple answer is NO!
Castor oil is made by extracting the oil from raw castor seeds. The difference is in the process. Some manufactures use heating methods or chemicals to extract the oil from the seeds. These methods strip castor oil of the nutrients responsible for its beauty benefits and the chemicals may cause extreme irritation to the skin. To ensure you get the best results possible, you must make sure that the oil is cold pressed, unrefined, hexane free and additives free. This means that it has the high concentrations of ricinoleic acid, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, vitamin E, and minerals that give castor oil its powerful punch. Since castor oil has a greasy scent, many brands are inclined to add additional aromas and additives that can be the source of irritation. It is very important to make sure that the only ingredient in the castor oil is 100% pure castor oil.
Not all products labelled as “organic castor oil” are the real deal. Some may contain low concentrations of castor oil because they’ve been diluted with a cheaper or lighter oil. To ensure you get the best results possible, you need to make sure that the Castor Oil is 100% pure and Castor oil is the ONLY ingredient. It is very important to make sure the product is certified organic by USDA.
