Castor Oil

Castor oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the Ricinus communis tree, which is mainly native to India. Castor oil has a thick consistency and a light yellow colour. Due to its high viscosity and resistance to high temperatures, castor oil is used as a lubricant for machinery.
In the plastics industry, castor oil is used to produce bio-based plastics as it is a sustainable alternative to petrochemical products.
In the paint and coatings industry, castor oil is used as a binder for dyes as it has high viscosity and adhesion.


  • Refined Castor Oil - First Special Grade
  • Cold pressed Castor Oil

CO2 neutral available:

For this purpose, we first developed a product carbon footprint (PCF), which details the emissions on a "cradle to gate" basis. In addition, we reduce emissions to a minimum through efficient logistics and intelligent warehouse locations in Europe. We then compensate for the remaining unavoidable emissions through Gold Standard CO2 certificates.
