The cold-pressed organic Castor Oil is viscous and almost colourless and odourless. It contains mainly ricinoleic acid and small amounts of oleic acid and lindoleic acid. The oil is not toxic because the poisonous ricin of the seeds does not pass into the oil during pressing. Our Castor Oil is Organic, COSMOS, NATRUE and KOSHER certified. It can be stored for at least 24 months.
