What is Ricinus Communis: Ricinus Communis: Commonly known as Castor Oil, it is indigenous to the south-eastern Mediterranean basin, Eastern Africa, and India, and has spread throughout many tropical regions.
Why we use it: Castor Oil is an exceptionally versatile ingredient included in our Follicle Stimulant. Its application in our HH Follicle Stimulant formula aids in lubricating the hair shafts, enhancing their flexibility and reducing the likelihood of breakage. Regular use ensures that hair follicles remain well-nourished and hydrated. Furthermore, Castor Oil boosts circulation to the hair follicles, encouraging robust hair growth. Its high fatty acid content helps to lock in moisture in the skin, thus improving the health of hair follicles and promoting strong hair growth while also offering protection against hair loss. It's also effective in minimizing the risk of dandruff in hair or beards and possesses antimicrobial and antifungal properties that maintain skin cleanliness and combat bacterial growth, even showing efficacy in reducing psoriasis.
Other benefits: Extracted from cold-pressed castor beans, Castor Oil is abundant in essential omega fatty acids, vitamin E, magnesium, and other significant minerals. It is particularly rich in ricin oleic acid, a type of fatty acid known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
