castor oil has many skin benefits

by Cailey George

There are several oils that can be used in skincare, one of which is castor oil. Castor oil has many great benefits and knowing what these are might help you decide if this oil is the right choice for you.

Ricinus Communis
Castor oil is made from the castor plant, also known as Ricinus Communis. India is the biggest country in castor oil productions, but it can also be grown in parts of Africa. The seeds of this plant contain a poison, but the pressing and heating process implemented to extract the oil effectively deactivates the poison, making the oil safe to use in skincare. In ancient Egypt, castor oil was used to treat ailments pertaining to labor and even eye irritations.

Castor oil aids in growing healthy skin tissue
Castor oil is commonly used today for its anti-inflammatory properties. These properties can be beneficial to users with acne, as the redness from their acne is reduced. The oil is antibacterial, preventing the bacteria that maliciously clogs pores and results in acne. Not only can castor oil reduce inflammation, but it has also been known historically to reduce pain, a wonderful added benefit when applying to skin. This oil is capable of evening out the user’s skin tone because it aids in growing healthy skin tissue. These capabilities along with its anti-inflammatory properties cause the skin to lose some redness and to remain an even, uniform color.

Castor oil locks in moisture
Castor oil's key ingredient is ricinoleic acid, a monosaturated fatty acid, giving it a thicker consistency which makes it ideal for locking in moisture in the skin. When mixed with carrier oils, such as hemp seed or grape seed oil, it is a superior ingredient in natural skincare.
