CAS No. 8001-79-4
Castor Oil is an emollient oil extracted from the castor bean (technically, a seed as it’s not part of the bean family). The castor bean contains ricin, a lethal protein, but it is denatured by heating during the oil extraction process, rendering it harmless.
Traditionally, Castor Oil has been used as a release agent, lubricant and binding agent in cosmetic formulations. Medicinally, it has been used as a laxative. Rich in emollients to soften and soothe skin, castor oil, with its low molecular weight, is known to penetrate deeply into the epidermis.
INCI: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil
