Castor Oil is rich in fatty acids and is soothing and lubricating. It is a humectant that attracts moisture to the skin. Castor Oil is routinely used in hair oils, balms, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair. In combination with other oils and as a superfatting agent, Castor Oil lends emolliency to soap formulations. It, however, should be used at a low percentage to keep the soap from becoming too soft.

Comments: High quality, affordable and effective! It helps keep hair soft and seals in moisture. A little goes a long way on textured hair. Use it on wet/damp hair before drying, and use a tiny amount on dry hair around edges overnight. It's great for winter hair care!

Comments: My hair has a very fine but uber kinky structure. Your castor oil my past purchase... After washing and conditioning, I slather my conditioner saturated hair with your castor oil for easy detangling in the shower. I lose very very very minimal hair in the process. I will provide an update after using this new batch this weekend. Sincerely, A happy camper!

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
