Castor Oil
Shelf Life 5 years

Castor oil is extremely conditioning, making it great for dry skin. Castor oil soothes inflamed skin, and reduces swelling from damage or irritation. As castor oil is the biggest resource for ricinoleic acid, it has properties that other oils may not have. Ricinoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid with antifungal and antibacterial properties. As a humectant, ricinoleic acid pulls moisture from the air and traps it to the skin, helping to hydrate skin.
