Ricinus Communis (CASTOR) Seed Oil is composed of 80 – 90% ricinoleic acid (if cold pressed), which is what makes it unique from other plant oils. A recent study found that ricinoleic acid obstructs prostaglandin d2, a type of fatty acid that is believed to contribute to hair loss. By slowing down prostaglandin d2, hair loss decreases.

Owing to the incomparably high fatty acid content of the CASTOR seed, it is imperative to cold press and cold process it to derive the oil. Otherwise, it is denatured and harmful to use. If your CASTOR oil does not specify both, it is neither.
