Castor oil is known to be a very useful, beneficial oil for soap makers. Castor oil is a staple for soap making. The right amount of pure castor oil helps the soap get to trace quicker and creates more stable foamy lather.
Castor oil is an excellent moisturizer as it attracts and holds moisture to skin. Check your superfatting chart. Sometimes the addition of castor oil will require more sodium hydroxide since it has the high ricinoleic acid content. In softer products, like shampoo bars and skin-care products, it is excellent. In the right combination with other vegetable oils, however, it makes a very nice moisturizing and hard bar of soap. Try castor oil in salves, balms, shampoos, hair oils, and other thick emulsions for the skin and hair.

mixed with safer soap it gets moles to move next door
Makes a wonderful burrowing animal repellent and deer don't like the taste either. Thanx for an inexpensive source.
Great quality, well-packaged and easy to decant into smaller containers for use in soap making.
This is the best castor oil that I've tried! It's smooth and thick but not oily. I've been using store brands up until and can tell the difference in my skin and hair since I've started using this one. They've got me hooked.
Ordered natural mole repellent and found it was corn cob bits soaked in caster oil. Thought I could make my own, with your help. Thanks.
