Description  more details

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.

Amazing in Soap and Lip Balm!
I couldn't imagine my soap without it! A little bit goes a long way, too. You can certainly tell it's a unique oil, it's very thick, unlike most other oils. But don't let that stop you, it's a miracle bubble maker! I also find I can't make lip balm without it.. it adds just that perfect feeling to your lips and really helps leave them feeling super soft!

Lots of bubbles
I made castile soap with just olive oil and it was terrible, no bubbles just slimy weirdness. I'm sure some people like this, I was not a fan. Added about 8% castor oil to just olive oil for a very gentle soap that would still lather for a baby, it was amazing! Made a huge difference and while the lather isn't as strong as coconut oil containing soaps it is a vast improvement over castile soap.

Came well packaged with all of my other items. Exactly as described, can't wait to use it in my CP Soaps.

Best Bang for my Buck!
I use castor oil in every single CP soap I make unless it is castille. I have been purchasing castor at a local health food store for over 3 times the cost I get it for here. I always purchase more than 1 item that I need to justify the shipping but since I am always soaping...I am always needing something. Bramble Berry is now my supplier for castor oil!
