Benefits of Jamaica Black Castor Oil

JBCO-Variety Variety of Jamaican Black Castor Oil on the market

Castor oil is a name that is encored throughout the world, especially in the global black hair community. However, what differentiates regular clear castor oil from Jamaica Black Castor Oil (JBCO) is the unique roasting process that gives it a distinct dark color and smell. The castor beans possess ricinolein.

Ricinolein is the chief constituent of castor oil and is the active principle in the use of castor oil as a purgative and solvent for several medically useful alkaloids.

Jamaican black castor oil consists of Ricinoleic acid (a hydroxy monounsaturated fatty acid) that is the primary component of this amazing oil that helps detoxify the skin by promoting blood flow and assisting in collagen production. There are several other uses and benefits of castor oil which are listed below:

  1. Probably the most well-known benefit of JBCO is its contribution to hair growth. It is known to be quickly absorbed into the scalp to soothe itchiness and dryness.

  2. JBCO helps to treat dandruff and hair breakage.

  3. As several users can attest, JBCO strengthens and moisturizes the hair shaft, contributing to thicker hair.
  4. JBCO may be used to treat acne and chapped lips.

  5. JBCO can also be used to improve beard, eyebrows, and eyelash growth.

  6. Known to be quite effective when heated, JBCO can be used as a massage oil to soothe the skin and relieve muscle tension.

  7. It can be used as a laxative. Simply take a teaspoon of JBCO with a splash of lime juice for almost immediate bowel relief. *

*This is not encouraged. Please contact a doctor for verified laxatives and bowel treatment.   

While the list of benefits is able to be extended in many other ways, there is still a great deal of research that needs to be concluded on the product. Nonetheless, it continues to be well marketed and sold globally.
