Castor Oil - 7 lbs 15 oz net weight in a 1 gallon container - Food Grade

Shipped in an HDPE safety sealed 1 gallon Container with a resealable screw cap.

For culinary use, as well as an ingredient in soapmaking, cosmetic, and skin/hair care products.

Derived from the castor bean and obtained by cold pressure, is rich in fatty acids and very moisturizing and lubricating to the skin in general. It acts as a humectant, attracting moisture to the skin.

Castor oil packs applied with warm flannel are believed effective for pain relief and to draw out cysts, boils, and warts. Ayurvedic medicine uses Castor Oil for lumbago, sciatica, and rheumatism. In the Canary Islands the oil is used to prevent sore nipples in nursing mothers and is also rubbed onto their scalps to prevent post natal hair loss.

A well-known superfatting agent and well suited for shampoo bars as well as skin-care products. Without other oils, it produces a transparent soft soap. In combination with other vegetable oils, however, it makes a wonderfully emollient, hard bar of soap.

Also used in industrial applications for lubricants, plastics, rubbers, and synthetic resins.
