Where is it from?
The castor oil plant originated in India. Our oil is imported from Jamaica. The plant has bean-like produce which contain the oil.
How is it made?
The castor beans are roasted and boiled before pressing. The process makes the beans darker. During the pressing process burnt ash from the beans mixes with the oil and improves the function of the oil in hair treatments. The oil is cold pressed from the castor beans. Cold pressing assures that the oil’s nutrients and the antioxidants remain undamaged. The process involves crushing and grinding the beans under a traditional mill stone or in stainless steel equipment and capturing the resulting oil. While the process does create some heat, the processing temperature cannot rise above 120 degrees F.
