Castor oil is an emollient that can be used to soothe, protect and moisturise the skin. It is a wonderful ingredient to include in your creams, lotions and body butters to take advantage of this quality to improve the overall smoothness and softness of the outer skin layers. 

When used in shampoos it provides additional shine and body. Castor oil is brilliant in liquid and bar soap.  When added to a soap recipe at only 2-3% it enables the production of a luxurious lather to be proud of. Castor oil is known for its great bubbles in ANY soap making endeavour, so don't neglect it in your next recipe!
