Heritage castor oil is a natural way to intensively moisturise dry skin and damaged hair. Also known as the Ricinus Communis or palma christi (hand of christ), castor oil is renowned for its protective and restorative properties. The brand has been creating cold pressed castor oil for over 41 years, taking inspiration from Edgar Cayce, the father of holistic therapy. Dedicated to achieving purity and optimum quality, you can rest assured that Heritage regularly screen their castor oil using an independent laboratory. Because Heritage produce their castor oil by cold pressing castor beans as opposed to roasting them, they can ensure their castor oil contains no by-products, such as ash, and is light in colour. Besides this, it is free from chemicals, such as hexane, as well as pesticides, parabens and phthalate - manmade ingredients which can cause drying of the skin. What's more, since they don't use allergens such as artificial colours and fragrances, Heritage castor oil is completely natural. And for extra peace of mind when choosing your next castor oil, Heritage do not test on animals. Apply to your belly button to relive symptoms of dry skin, hair and nails.
