The Balm - 10ml
This welcome slick of luminous castor oil (a humectant, rich in hydrating ricinoleic acid) and a little bit of magic works wonders for your lips. It locks in the moisture and promotes healing (anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory).
Cure-all castor oil.
Castor oil has been used as a cure-all throughout the world for more than 3000 years; referred to in early herbal texts as Palma Christi ('palm of Christ') for its abundant healing properties.
A versatile vegetable oil, this classic cure-all is extracted from the seeds of the castor oil plant. Its benefits derive from the essential fatty acids omega-6 and -9 that it contains, including ricinoleic acid, a humectant with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It is a valuable source, too, of the natural antioxidant vitamin E.
Castor oil's emollient and humectant qualities are ideal for smoothing and soothing dry, flaky lips and skin; for providing a protective barrier. It is equally beneficial for hair and nail growth: nourishing eyebrows and cuticles.
How To Use It
Apply regularly, daily, as necessary. Excellent spot application for bodycare, too (easy with Gagnon Essentials' handy roll-on applicator).
100% organic cold-pressed castor oil (+ that little bit of magic).
Gagnon Essentials' 100% pure organic castor oil is cold-pressed, a natural method of extraction that does not use heat, which can adversely affect the oil's nutritional content. Free from parabens, phthalates, SLS, pesticides and other unwelcome chemicals.
