Our Castor oil is cold pressed from Ricinus communis seeds organically grown, pressed and filtered only to remove excess debris. This oil is a clear golden yellow color with light aroma. Castor Oil is a highly emollient oil known for its ability to penetrate deep into skin layers. An excellent humectant, lubricant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic oil.
A Randomized Controlled Trial of topical periocular castor oil treatment for blepharitis was conducted and published on PubMed. The castor oil used in this trial was anonymously purchased from Lotus Garden Botanicals. Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids in which they become red, irritated and itchy with dandruff-like scales that form on the eyelashes. The symptoms of blepharitis can include: burning, soreness or stinging in the eyes; crusty eyelashes and itchy eyelids.
The conclusion of this trial found that "topical castor oil application effected significant improvements in ocular surface signs and symptoms in patients with blepharitis. The favourable therapeutic profile would suggest that castor oil demonstrates promise as a potential treatment for blepharitis, and support the conduct of further efficacy trials with longer follow up." You can find the complete text of this trial on PubMed.
