love this castor oil. It gives my soaps a luxurious feel. !ather and bubbles. My skin feels soft. Lovex

Only one I’ll buy

I used a few different castor oils then found this one and love it never use anything else

Five Stars Given - But it Only Allows you to Give Four

Good quality for a fraction of Chemist W. price. I use it for Hand and Body cream (it penetrates more deeply than any other oil so it makes superb creams), soaps and it’s good in lip balms. Oh, and a few dabs on crows feet under the sleep mask before bed erase wrinkles. Such a pity the postage literally costs almost double the cost of the item though (AusPost is extremely bad price and service-wise these days). Apart from that totally happy.

Great quality and clean castor oil at a very good price. Using this at 5% in CP soap and for lip and body balms

Love it!

I have added it to every recipe. It is an absolute must, and produces a lovely thick lather. I bought a litre of it and it was at the best price and quality i have found. Super solid packaging, too.
