CASTOR Oil

Description

Castor Oil

Castor oil is a natural thick, clear oil that helps produce a rich, creamy lather in soap.  Castor oil is a humectant which attracts moisture to your skin.  We suggest using 5% - 8% castor oil in cold process/hot process soap recipes.  When castor oil is used more than 10% in cold process/hot process soap, it can make your soap sticky. 

Gallons are sold by volume and not weight.  However, one gallon weighs approximtely 8 pounds.

Castor oil is also added to some lip balm recipes, and massage oil recipes to provide a silky glide. 

SAP VALUE KOH / NaOH: .180---.128 

Castor oil contains the following essential fatty acids:
Ricinoleic- 90%
Oleic- 4%
Linoleic- 4%

Packaged in an opaque, white HDPE plastic bottle to reduce exposure to sunlight. Store in an air tight container in a cool, dark place.

Shelf life is 1 year from purchase.

Buy it

Reviewer: A viewer from Ohio 07/02/15

I use castor oil in every batch of soap. This castor oil works great and it's nice to have it in a bigger bottle than what is available at the local supermarket. Nice pale color so it has little effect on the desired color of your final bar.

Adds a really creamy lather to soap

Reviewer: Angela Camp from Lithia Springs. GA 05/21/15

I bought a few bottles of this castor oil to use in hp soap. It adds a really creamy lather to soap. The price is super affordable. I paid a lot more than this in Walmart when I ran out and needed 1 oz to finish a recipe. This price is the best I've found online.

This Castor Oil is a pure and good quality oil. My order came very fast, and it saved the day. I was afraid I wouldn't get it in time for my church craft Luncheon. It arrived within days of ordering and was in time for my class. HORRAY

So needed this

Reviewer: A viewer from Lumberton, NC USA 11/02/14

I made the mistake of running out of caster oil right in the middle of making soap so I had to have hubby run out to the drug store and buy me a couple of those little tiny bottles which cost more than ONE bottle from here. I ordered 3 that night and wont be making that mistake again!
