Castor Oil is derived from the Ricinus flowering plant. This oil is so wonderful because it is so rich in fatty acids. As such, this oil helps to enhance softness and smoothness when applied to the skin. This ingredient is included in our Dreamy Bedtime Balm, Rose Peppermint Lip & Cheek Tint, and Cardamom Balancing Balm. This oil helps each of these products to glide on smoother, leaving a beautiful little sheen to the skin.
