Also an ingredient for those who like to make their own soap. Honest Skincare castor oil is natural and safe to use internally as well as externally.
Castor oil is extracted from the castor bean, which is the seed of the Ricinus communis plant.
This oil has been extracted by an expeller, no solvents such as hexane were used in the extraction process.
Our castor oil originates in India. Castor plants are especially grown without the use of sprays or pesticides. The castor plants are then harvested, and oil extracted by the cold-press process. NO solvents are used in extraction. So to answer your question: does it contain hexane? We can say emphatically that it does not contain any hexane at all. Our castor oil is shipped to New Zealand in steel drums, then decanted directly into glass bottles. The question we are often asked: is it organic? No, it is not certified organic (which would increase the price significantly), however it is about as pure as you can get - so you can rest assured that it is 100% natural and good for your body.
