Summa Skincare and Cosmetics - Castor Oil


Summa Skincare and Cosmetics - Castor Oil is one of our high-quality and top-selling products under our new collection named "Summa Skincare and Cosmetics" that generally offer Beauty and Personal Care. Our Castor Oil is composed of 85 to 90 wt. % ricinoleic acid triglyceride, other fatty acids being linoleic C18:2 (4 to 5%), oleic C18:1 (3 to 4%), C18:0 stearic (1 to 2%), C16:0 palmitic (1 to 2%), linolenic (0.5 to 0.7%), and few amounts of C20 + fatty acids. 

Castor oil is a thick, odorless oil made from the seeds of the castor plant. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt, where it was first used as lamp fuel and later for medicinal and beauty treatments — Cleopatra reportedly believed the oil would brighten the whites of her eyes.

Castor oil is a common ingredient in many beauty products. It’s rich in essential fatty acids that moisturize the skin, and research continues to study how their properties may be effective in treating common skin conditions. 

Castor oil has also been used to help pregnant women with delivery for centuries. In fact, a survey from 1999 found that 93% of midwives in the U.S. used castor oil to induce labor. While further research is needed, one study found that castor oil initiated labor in 91% of women with little to no childbirth complications. (WebMD Editorial Contributors, September 2020).
