Castor Oil

Castor oil is a natural thick, clear oil that helps produce a rich, creamy lather in soap.  Castor oil is a humectant which attracts moisture to your skin.  We suggest using 5% - 8% castor oil in cold process/hot process soap recipes.  When castor oil is used more than 10% in cold process/hot process soap, it can make your soap sticky. 

Gallons are sold by volume and not weight.  However, one gallon weighs approximtely 8 pounds.

Castor oil is also added to some lip balm recipes, and massage oil recipes to provide a silky glide. 

SAP VALUE KOH / NaOH: .180---.128 

Castor oil contains the following essential fatty acids:
Ricinoleic- 90%
Oleic- 4%
Linoleic- 4%

Packaged in an opaque, white HDPE plastic bottle to reduce exposure to sunlight. Store in an air tight container in a cool, dark place.

Shelf life is 1 year from purchase. 

INCI name:  Castor Seed Oil (Ricinus Communis)
