Tropical Jamaican Black Castor oil differs from other castor oils due to the manufacturing process. The clear castor oil is a result of cold-pressed castor beans; this is the castor oil everyone is familiar with and remembers from childhood days. Whereas, Jamaican black castor oil gets its dark brown colour from roasting of the castor beans, followed by boiling of the roasted beans before they are pressed to release the 100% pure, natural castor oil. Due to the roasting process the oil contains ash, which improves the efficacy of the oil.
Tropical Jamaican Black Castor Oil is a natural hair and scalp treatment which promotes healthy stronger and faster hair growth. Jamaican Black Castor Oil provides the scalp and hair with highly beneficial nutrients such as (i) Ricinoleic acid, that stimulates the circulation of nutrient-rich blood to the hair follicles (ii) Vitamin E, amino acids and omega 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, promoting hair growth. It’s also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, protecting the scalp against pathogens and micro-organisms, that cause infection and hair loss.
