Castor Oil (Ricinus communis) has been used in skin care since the times of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties penetrate deep into the skin, making it the perfect carrier for pain or skin-healing formulations. A rich emollient, Castor Oil is great for dry, damaged skin.
