Castor oil is used for moisturizing the skin and promoting hair and eyelash growth, particularly growing thicker, longer, and darker eyelashes. Castor oil is a rich source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a special type of fatty acid that has many beneficial properties, such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. The fatty acids in castor oil are made up of about 50% lauric acid– the same substance found in breastmilk.
Lauric acid easily binds with the natural protein found in hair, which protects them from breaking; and therefore, allowing your eyelashes to grow. Castor oil is also effective in helping prevent protein loss in hair, which is beneficial in the growth of eyelashes and reducing hair damage. Because of castor oil’s unique molecular structure, it easily penetrates to the hair shaft, which increases the speed of growth.
Castor oil also contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, which are helpful for protecting your eyelashes against hair-damaging bacteria and fungi. In addition, it’s rich in iron, Vitamins E and K, and other fatty acids.
