Castor oil is an age old beauty treatment with multiple wonderful uses. It is in the species of perennial flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae.
Many of castor oils benefits come down to its chemical composition. It is classified as a type of triglyceride fatty acid, and almost 90 percent of its fatty acid content is a specific and rare compound called ricinoleic acid. Aside from its primary constituent, ricinoleic acid, castor oil also contains certain beneficial salts and esters that function primarily as skin-conditioning agents.
Castor oil is a great skin moisturizer, anti-inflammatory blemish treatment, and can delay the signs of aging since it helps increase collagen and elastin production. Castor oil also prevents hair loss and can be used as a hair treatment oil.
