What is Castor Oil?
Ricinus communis, the Castorbean or Castor-oil plant, is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. Its seed is the Castor bean, which, despite its name, is not a true bean.
The seeds contain between 40% and 60% oil that is rich in triglycerides, mainly ricinolein. The seed also contains ricin, a water-soluble toxin, which is also present in lower concentrations throughout the plant.
Health Leads Castor Oil is 100% organic, cold-pressed. Read more about the benefits of cold-pressed oils below.

Health Leads Commitment to You
The best oils are cold-pressed. The oil is obtained through grinding and pressing in a stainless steel hydraulic press. Although pressing and grinding produce heat through friction, the temperature must not rise above 120°F (49°C) for any oil to be considered cold-pressed. Cold-pressed oils are produced at much lower temperatures, retaining all of their flavour, aroma, and nutritional value.
We will not use known harmful hydrogenated oil, additives, colourants, sweeteners, excipients such as magnesium stearate.
These efforts are born of our desire for good quality at the best price.
Use topically to penetrate deep into the skin or massage into the scalp to promote hair growth.
This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and is hexane free.
