Castor Oil is one of the few oils that can be used as an emulsifying agent. It is also a humectant, helping to draw moisture to the skin and provides a protective barrier on your skin that will protect against harsh environmental conditions. It has very little scent. It has antifungal properties and is a viscous oil.
Castor oil is amazing in handmade soap. It lends to a creamy silky lather. Great for lip balm and lotions.
