(Dark Yellow, Brown/Black Colour)
Benefits: Hydrates, moisturises and softens skin and hair. Castor oil contains vitamins and minerals which provide nutrition to hair follicles and is rich in Vitamin E and omega 6 essential fatty acids including ricinoleic acid. These acids are thought to increase absorption and promote the retention of moisture into the skin and hair as Castor oil is also a humectant.
Castor oil is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and helps to soothe skin conditions including dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. It is helpful in restoring uneven skin tones and has a low comedogenic score. This means that it is unlikely to clog pores in the skin and reduces the risk of developing blackheads, making it a suitable oil for use on sensitive skin and scalp conditions.
Locally Adedenkruma (Ghanaian Castor Oil) is used to heal dandruff and grow thicker, longer hair.
Suitable for all skin & hair types particularly those with dry skin.
Caution: A patch test is recommended and if irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately.
Directions: A few drops a day can be used as a daily moisturiser and conditioning treatment on clean skin, hair and scalp. Massage into the scalp or skin for best results.
A few drops a day can be used as a night serum, as a gentle cleansing oil and makeup remover. Can be used as an intensive hot oil treatment for hair mixed with other oils such as Baobab oil and Shea oil.
