One Ingredient: 100% pure oil cold-pressed from organically grown castor seeds (or beans)
Black Castor Oil has been used since antiquity for variety of beauty rituals. Though there is no scientific evidence (no studies) to show actual benefits of Black Castor Oil on hair growth, many people swear by it. It takes 6-8 weeks of daily application to see consistent results. For hair follicles to re-grow, you need at least a month to complete a growth cycle.
Main reason it works, is because for hair to grow, hair follicles need to be strong, moisturized, protected, and to have good blood supply. Black Castor Oil does it all and more. That is why it is perfect for boosting hair health and growth.

Black Castor Oil is a native of sunny African continent and is made pretty much the same way as it has always been - handpicked from small farms, beans roasted, and then cold-pressed without using heat.
The soil where Black Castor Oil beans grow are naturally fertilized by the sediments that are brought by rivers flowing and flooding into the Delta of the Nile. Rich, fertile soil of this region does not need chemicals. They are actually too expensive and also not allowed to use.
Black Castor Oil naturally contains very high amounts of ricinoleic acid, which is a fatty acid from Omega-9 family of acids, which has incredible antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The bean from which the oil is pressed also contains a 'chemical' called ricin. Ricin is harmful if ingested. But it can only happen if you 'eat the beans'. Black Castor oil does not contain ricin, so no worries. Though do read our 'warnings' section for the best and safest use of this wonderful oil.
- do not ingest
- keep away from children; this oil looks like a delicious syrup and it definitely should not be eaten by anyone, especially little ones
- test on a patch under your armpit for about 24 hours to see if there is any irritation. Though a reaction is highly unlikely, we are all different and react differently to various natural ingredients, no matter how benign.
- if you get some oil in your eyes, rinse eyes with plenty of warm water to prevent irritation, if it occurs
