Love Your Skin Back with Castor Oil
What is castor oil?
Castor oil is a vegetable oil, pressed from the seeds of the Ricinus communis plant, native to tropical areas of both Africa and Asia. Castor oil is celebrated for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, moisturizing properties.
Why do we feature castor oil in our Violets Are Blue skincare lines?
Castor oil is rich in triglycerides and fatty acids, which can enhance skin’s texture and promote the growth of healthy skin tissue. It is non-comedogenic and safe for use on sensitive skin. Its healing properties make castor oil perfect for soothing skin that may be dry, irritated or inflamed. Like all ingredients featured in Violets Are Blue eco-lux products, castor oil is pure and simple, perfect for loving your skin back.
You can find castor oil in our Lip Balm with Jojoba Oil and Castor Oil and our Face & Body Lotion with Argan, Coconut and Castor Oil.
