Cold Pressed organic Castor oil contains 90% Ricinoleic acid. Ricinoleic acid exerts many of the anti-inflammatory effects associated with Castor oil. Undecylenic Acid is also prevalent in Castor oil and is what gives the oil it’s antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiviral attributes. Another unique attribute of cold pressed castor oil is its ability to easily penetrate deep into the skin. This is due to its molecular mass, which is low enough to enter into the stratum corneum. For this reason, Castor oil is helpful for joint and arthritic conditions.
