Cleop@tr@ Be@uty Secrets#?
My oldest daughter is a total natural products addict and my youngest daughter is a total…I mean total …makeup addict…both where asking me why Castor Oil is soooo good for their skin.
To answer all of their…and your… interrogations (I hope so:)), here is the Castor Oil Index Card.
First of all, this is a vegetal oil, extracted from the seeds of a plant.
This is an ornemental plant in our regions, and the “Ricinus Communis ” can reach 20 feets in tropical and subtropical regions.
Castor Oil Properties:
-Castor Oil contains poly-unsaturated fatty acid (vitamin F), which, as said on web med.com, is a skincare and body booster.
-Castor Oil contains:
a) monounsaturated fatty acids: containing rinoleic acid,a very good agent stopping germs to developp, giving to the castor oil purifying properties.
b) oleic acids: omega 9
-Castor oil contains saturated fatty acids
a) palmitic acids: is one of the most prevalent saturated fatty acids in body lipids. In aging skin levels, palmitic acid can decrease by as much as 56% (according to truth in aging website)
When castor oil is extracted from a cold-pressed manner, the oil is presenting an extrem viscosity. After this cold pressed action it needs to be filtered to extract “ricin”, which is a natural toxic substance contained in the seeds. It is than totally safe to be used in cosmetic thanks to it’s great benefits. Castor oil is perfect to be used in make up products.
It’s specific fat acid is making the castor oil a wonderful skincare basis, well known since Antiquity, indeed Cleopatra was using this oil as a makeup remover. This oil is also strenghtening nails and eyelashes.
It also have skin’s healing benefits and is well known for it’s effective action against over pigmented skins on face and hands.
