Castor seeds originate from India and have spread to countries like Russia, China, Paraguay and Brazil. However, India remains the main producer of the seed oil. Castor oil is one of the few carrier oils that can be used as an emulsifying agent. It is soluble and can be used as a base for essential oils. Castor oil also acts as a protective barrier on your skin that will protect against harsh environmental conditions; it has lubricating properties and is ideal for use in nail care products and lipsticks. It is often used in massage oils, creams, aromatherapy, and in manufacturing, particularly as a conditioning agent in hair care products. The fatty acids of castor oil are ricinoleic (89%), oleic (6%) and linoleic (3%). Avena are wholesale and retail carrier oil suppliers and have a high turnover of oils ensuring great quality and fresh products. We constantly source oils and trade socially aware ingredients from fastidious parts of the world so you can buy with confidence.
