PROPERTIES OF CASTOR OIL
The viscosity of this oil allows it to fill the scales of the hair to repair, hydrate and also strengthen it. It helps to slow down hair loss and stimulates regrowth. Recommend in a local application for problems of alopecia, hair loss after pregnancy following hormonal rebalancing, but also before and after chemotherapy.
With its viscous consistency, it enters and fills the interstices of the skin of damaged hands.
It is an oil rich in ricinoleic acid (omega 9) and fatty acids which limit the multiplication of germs (bacteria and yeast). It is interesting for this reason to fight against acne and also calm itching.
Castor oil can be used to massage the nails and cuticles. Its viscous texture will impregnate the nail, promote regrowth and strengthen it, especially for brittle, striated or too soft nails. Castor oil is present in some varnishes, also called repair serum.
