Organic castor oil is a healing oil that is great for healthy skin and scalp.
- Organic cold-pressed castor oil contains 90% ricinoleic acid. Ricinoleic acid has many anti-inflammatory effects associated with castor oil.
- Undecylenic acid is also widely distributed in castor oil, and this is what gives the oil its antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.
- Another unique property of cold pressed castor oil is its ability to easily penetrate deep into the skin. This is due to its molecular weight, which is small enough to penetrate the stratum corneum. For this reason, castor oil is useful for arthritis. Studies have shown that castor oil effectively acts as an analgesic, significantly reducing pain.
