Castor Oil is one of the few oils that can be used as an emulsifying agent. It also acts as a protective barrier on your skin that will protect against harsh environmental conditions.
The Castor plant (Ricinus communis) also grows in Eastern Africa and India and is cultivated extensively in the USA. The Castor oil plant has a distinctive bright red flower in the female flowers and greenish / yellow in the male flowers. The leaves are glossy and grow to 15-45cm in length (depending upon variety and conditions). The height of the Castor oil plant can vary from a small shrub to 12 meters in height. The flowers of the Castor oil plant are green to reddish purple.
It is a stable oil which does not easily go rancid.

The major component of Castor oil; Ricinoleic acid is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties which help to prevent hair loss, whilst the high levels of Omega oils help to strengthen the hair follicle.
