“Searches for ‘castor oil’ on Google have increased significantly in the past 12 months, with related searches for its specific beauty benefits such as eyelash and eyebrow growth, hair growth, soothing problematic skin and protecting against wrinkles, said Euan.
He continued: “Made from castor seeds, castor oil is high in vitamin E and contains essential unsaturated fatty acids like omega-6 and ricin oleic acid that stimulate blood circulation on the surface of the skin, stimulating hair growth.”
Euan advises to ‘look for a cold-pressed or cold-processed castor oil’ for maximum success.
“Castor seeds are rich with essential oils and in order to extract the oils pressure is added to them to release all the goodness. Unlike some castor oils, cold-pressed does not use heat to extract the nutrients instead, natural methods of pressing are used producing 100 percent pure castor oil.”
