This castor oil is so wonderful in cold process soap, I bought the 33.3 oz and it is almost finished. Six months ago I knew nothing about making soap. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and now I am hooked. I started out with M&P and now I have started making cold process and enjoying it. Your products and wonderful prices have made it easy for me to try out things that I never knew I can make. Thank you so much NDA

I used this oil in my M&P soap base because I read that it increases lather, while I did not notice any increase in lather. My soap came out great, creamy and hard. Lather or not I love it and will continue using it, it does not add any smell to my soap other than the essential oil that I added to it. Thank you NDA

This castor oil is much more economical than buying at the drug store, and way better quality. I use it in all of my CP soaps to increase lather, and in my lip balms for shine. It is fantastic!

A nice thick oil for use almost anywhere. As a base in oil cleansing, as a finishing hair oil to lock in moisture and other oils overnight, to clean the scalp with its anti-fungal properties. I couldn't be happier with the price either.

Great insanely affordable oil that works great in cold process soap. It helps give soaps a generous lather. You can make shampoo soap bars by increasing the amount of castor oil in your recipe. The oil can also be used directly on the hair and is believed to help with hair growth. It's very thick, so apply conservatively.

Castor oil is my staple carrior oil. Its great for general skincare products from soap to body massage oils. I've recently been making lip gloss with it. It super on its own or is best mixed with other raw ingredients if you want to combine it with other theraputic benefits.

I use castor oil for making my cold process soap and liquid soap. castor oil acts as a humectant by attracting and retaining mosture to the skin. also, I added castor oil for my shampoo making. I make liquid soap for my hair. I combine coconut oil, castor oil, shea butter, hemp seed oil and jojoba oil for make my liquid hair soap and it works amazing ! good qulity and reasonable price !
