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

I received my certified organic refined Shea butter today and was extremely pleased. I must say that it is the BEST refined butter I have ever used. The texture is creamy and the feel is like silk, absolutely no odor and the feel of your skin is so soft and smooth. It's truly a nourishment. I'm almost speechless on the great quality of this product. I'm ordering 15 more pounds and sure to be back for more. Thank you Lotioncrafter for providing such an amazing product, you have a customer for life.

I received my order in my mailbox in ONLY TWO DAYS- unbelieveable!!
Renee

I came to Lotioncrafter after spending years, and thousands of dollars, with several suppliers who did not meet the level of what my business needs. I had to jump from one supplier to another, and so on, in an effort to fill a single order. I've known about Lotioncrafter for several years but erroneously believed their prices to be out of my range. How dumb was that?! In truth, Lotioncrafter, has excellent products, and excellent prices. I've also learned that I can expect, and receive, quality products that, so far, I have not found in other suppliers. I trust Jen to see that I receive products that are as advertised and have the quality my customers expect from me. Thank you, Lotioncrafter and Jen, for being there for me and my customers.
Judith, (Prestige Creations)
