Castor oil is a type of vegetable oil made from castor beans. It has almost become a buzzword in recent times. Just seeing it listed as an ingredient in skincare or haircare products gives you an incentive to buy castor oil. Of course, this is not without good reason. Castor oil provides several health benefits, from relieving constipation to improving skin and hair health.

The castor plant is originally from Ethiopia in East Africa. However, it now grows in various tropical and temperate regions worldwide. The usage of castor oil dates back to ancient Egypt, where ancient Egyptians protect one’s eyes from irritation. They also added it as an ingredient in facial oils. In addition, castor oil lamps were quite popular.
