Words by Anny Schneider

This castor oil extracted from the seeds of the plant promotes the growth and resistance of the appendages (hair, eyelashes, eyebrows and nails).

It also has powerful analgesic properties (painkillers), when applied in massage after being slightly heated in a double boiler, especially if you add essential analgesic oils (yellow birch, wintergreen, peppermint ...).

For the skin, it turns out to be softening and healing, in addition to reducing brown spots or the pregnancy mask.

It is also called Palma Christi, because of its multiple benefits.

Non-comedogenic and not very sensitive to oxidation.


Organic vegetable oil of Castor coming from India, 100% natural and cold pressed.


Ricin oil is not very comedogenic.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
