Castor oil is a very precious vegetable oil, which is extracted from the seeds of the castor bean plant (Ricinus communis).

It is used in the pharmaceutical industry, to grow hair and nails, eyelashes and eyebrows; in the production of soaps, perfumes and cosmetics  and even as a lubricant in mechanics.

It is also used in the production of inks and pigments, as a component for the production of waxes and surface coatings, or for the synthesis of cold-resistant plastics.
