Castor Oil - Castor oil is extracted from the Castor Bean Plant. It is a thick, viscous liquid with a slight distinctive smell. It acts similar to glycerin, as a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin. Castor oil contributes to thick, large bubbles in cold process soap and is used in most shampoo bar recipes. It is a good oil for superfatting.
INCI: Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil
