I Don't Love Black Castor Oil

Posted on January 13 2016



I have a confession. I do not like black castor oil. You will never see it in any Curl Collection product. I know this comes as a shock, but hear me out.

I need to clarify. I love cold pressed castor oil. What I don't like is BLACK castor oil and how it's made. Black castor oil is made from the ash of castor oil beans. To make black castor oil, the beans are roasted causing them to turn black and create ash. When the oil is extracted from the roasted beans, the ash gets into the oil. This process gives the oil a darker color and the burnt smell. I believe, roasting the castor beans heats up the beans causing them to lose nutrients (similar to  cooked  veggies  vs.  raw  veggies).  Adding  ash  to  oil  taints  the purity  of  the  oil  and  irritates sensitive skin and roasting the beans depletes nutrients resulting in a lower quality oil. 

Cold-pressed  castor  oil  is  made  by  taking  the  beans  and  mashing  them  causing  the  oil  to  be released. This method preserves all of the nutrients because the beans aren’t heated and the oil doesn’t contain any additives. Pure castor oil is the most beneficial to your hair and skin, which is why it’s the only type of castor oil used any Curl Collection products. The next time you think about using castor oil choose pure cold pressed castor oil.

 

Have you ever experienced any irritation from black castor oil?
