Castor oil

Anti-inflammatory: Castor is the perfect antidote for an irritated, inflamed skin. Its anti inflammatory properties can help to calm and soothe a sensitive skin.

Antibacterial: The triglycerides found in castor help to fight skin infections. One of the main benefits of castor oil is that it slows down the growth of harmful microbes.

Anti Acne: The topical application of castor oil, can help to reduce P Acnes bacteria in the skin. This is due to ricinoleic acid (the only oil that contains high level of it; on average 90%) , a potent fatty acid, which helps to protect the skin against invading viruses and bacteria.

Hydrating: Castor oil works as a natural humectant, pulling moisture from the air and trapping it close to the skins tissues.

Moisturising: The triglycerides that are present in castor oil can help to restore the skin's natural moisture balance, making it a perfect ingredient for dry skin conditions.

Non Comedogenic: It is low on the comedogenic scale, so it won’t clog pore.
