Castor Oil
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.


Recommended Usage Rate: 1 - 100%
Appearance: Light yellow viscous oil
Method of Extraction: Expeller pressed, then refined to denature protein and reduce odor
Country of Origin: India
Molecular weight: 928 Daltons
Specific Gravity: 0.961
Required HLB: 14
SAP Value KOH: 0.180


INCI: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil

So that our staff may enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, May 28th. We will reopen on Tuesday, May 29th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, May 29th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
