Our black castor oil is made using traditional Jamaican methods that have been passed down for years. Hand-processed castor beans are roasted and boiled, and the oil is skimmed off until no water remains. The result is a light to dark brown, nutty-scented oil that is ideal for many uses. It is great for hair, as it is a moisturizing oil with natural reflective qualities that boosts shine. It can be used on eyelashes to encourage growth, as well as nails to encourage growth and protect from bacteria. Black castor oil can also be used to moisturize the skin and reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and acne. Skin conditions such as eczema can be soothed with castor oil, as it creates a protective barrier on the skin to lock in moisture. Our black castor oil contains no additives, and is ideal for every skin type.
How To Use
Apply as desired to skin or hair. Can be brushed through hair as a detangler, used as a deep conditioner or hot oil treatment, or rubbed on skin for restorative moisture. Brush through eyelashes for improved growth and shine, or use on hands to soften cuticles and prevent fungal issues.
