WHAT IS JAMAICAN BLACK CASTOR OIL: Jamaican Black Castor Oil is extracted from the beans of the castor plant just like the regular castor oil. The extraction process is the one in which the beans are roasted, crushed in a mortar using water and then the entire mixture is boiled over the fire. Due to the difference in density of oil and water, the dark oil raises to the top which is separated and collected in individual bottles. The rich dark colour of the oil is due to the roasting of the beans, resulting in dark ash. This oil is known as the Jamaican Black Castor oil which is considered to be beneficial for treating all scalp, hair care and skin care issues. The beneficial property of it is due to the presence of an active compound Ricinoleic acid which promotes healthier hair growth.
