How do I get transformational results With iAMA Castor Oil?

With your first purchase, you will receive an indepth step-by-step guide on how to use our Castor Oil for the best results possible.

Why do you only use the purest organic Castor Oil?

Purity and Safety
Our organic Castor Oil is free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilisers, reducing the risk of exposure to harmful substances. This is especially crucial when applying oil to the skin or ingesting it, as impurities could cause irritation or adverse reactions.

Reduced Allergen Risk
Our organic Castor Oil does not contain allergens or contaminants from agricultural chemicals. This is important for people with sensitive skin or allergies looking for a natural and pure alternative.

Environmental Responsibility
Our organic Castor Oil is produced using sustainable and environmentally friendly farming practices, minimizing the impact on ecosystems and promoting soil health. Choosing organic supports responsible agriculture.

Higher Quality
Our organic Castor Oil is generally of higher quality because it is produced with stricter standards and controls. This often results in a more effective product for personal care and health-related applications.

Peace of Mind
Knowing that you're using a pure and organic product provides reassurance that you're not exposing yourself to potentially harmful chemicals. This is particularly comforting when using our Castor Oil for holistic purposes.

Why is iAMA Castor Oil cold pressed?

Our Castor Oil is 100% cold-pressed, meaning the oil extracted from the seeds of the castor plant (Ricinus communis) is used by a mechanical process that does not involve heat or chemical solvents. The benefits of this are:

Extraction Method
In cold pressing, the seeds are crushed, and oil is extracted using mechanical pressure. This process is carried out at low temperatures to preserve the natural properties of the oil.

Preserves Nutrients
The absence of heat in cold pressing helps retain the oil's beneficial nutrients, like ricinoleic acid, fatty acids, and vitamins, which might degrade with heat or chemical extraction methods.

Reduced Contamination Risk
Since chemical solvents are not used, there's a lower risk of contamination with unwanted chemicals or residues. This makes our cold-pressed Castor Oil a purer and more natural product.

Higher Quality
Our cold-pressed Castor Oil has a higher quality due to the preservation of its natural compounds and minimal processing. It retains a rich, thick consistency and a slight earthy aroma.

Eco-Friendly
The cold-pressing process is often considered more environmentally friendly because it involves fewer chemical processes and produces less waste compared to other extraction methods.

Why is iAMA Castor Oil hexane free?

Our Castor Oil is 100% hexane free and has been extracted without the use of hexane or other harsh solvents.

Health Concerns
Hexane is a volatile organic compound and can be harmful if inhaled or ingested in significant quantities.

Environmental Impact
The extraction process using hexane can have environmental risks, including pollution from the solvent itself and energy use.

How much iAMA Castor Oil should I use?

Unlike commercial products, iAMA Castor Oil contains no toxins or harmful additives and is suitable for the face and body.

For external use on the skin and hair, there is no harm - you can use as much as you like! (More the better in our opinion!)

For consumption, it's recommended to not exceed 3-4 tablespoons.

If you're using iAMA Castor Oil for the first time, it is recommended to use minimally and build up as you get used to the texture and application.

Is Castor Oil sticky?

Yes, iAMA Castor Oil at first can feel sticky... but that's the beauty of it.

We say the stickier, the better! This means it has a higher viscosity. It has a low evaporation rate, meaning it doesn't evaporate quickly when exposed to air. This characteristic helps maintain its sticky, thick nature over time.

Once massaging iAMA into your skin for at least 30 seconds, you will find that the stickiness disappears and the product is absorbing into your skin.

Try it for yourself!

Can I drink iAMA Castor Oil?

Yes! Castor oil has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, and pain-relieving properties that may offer health benefits. It can help relieve constipation, moisturises skin, clean dentures, and induces labor.

The ricinoleic acid in the oil is a powerful natural laxative, so it's recommended not to digest more than 3-4 table spoons per day.

It should not be used for long-term health concerns without consulting a healthcare professional.

Are there any side effects of using iAMA Castor Oil?

Unlike commercial products, iAMA Castor Oil contains no harmful additives and is suitable for the face and body.

If digested in large amounts, it may cause nausea, abdominal cramping, vomiting and diarrhoea.

If you are taking any medication or have any medical condition, it is recommended to speak with your doctor before using iAMA Castor Oil.

When using iAMA Castor Oil for the first time, it is recommended to use minimally and build up. Do a patch test on a small area of your skin before applying larger amounts.

If you're allergic to the castor plant, you could have itching, swelling, or rashes if you apply the oil to your skin. Test a small spot before you use it.

What are the benefits to my mind and body of using iAMA Castor Oil?

The body

Our Castor Oil can benefit the body through its unique chemical composition and biological properties. It contains ricinoleic acid, a fatty acid with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects.

It's also an incredibly powerful alternative to products that contain toxic chemicals that may be causing us harm.

Using our 100% pure Castor Oil is using 100% pure Gold.

The mind

In some traditions, Castor Oil is used as part of a cleansing or purification ritual, intended to detoxify not only the body but also the mind and spirit. This cleansing can create a sense of mental clarity and renewal, fostering a deeper connection with one's inner self.

Our 100% pure Castor Oil eliminates the guess work of choosing the endless products that are on the market for our skin and wellbeing.

Is iAMA Castor Oil suitable for vegans?

Yes! Our pure Castor Oil is suitable for vegans.

Castor oil is derived from the seeds of the castor plant (Ricinus communis), and the extraction process does not involve any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Can I use iAMA Castor Oil if I have a nut allergy?

Our Castor Oil is derived from the seeds of the castor bean plant (Ricinus communis) and is not related to tree nuts or other common allergens associated with nut allergies.

People with nut allergies can safely use our Castor Oil, as it does not contain nut-derived proteins or oils that trigger allergic reactions.

However, it's always good to be cautious when trying a new product, especially if you have a history of allergies or sensitivities.

Can iAMA Castor Oil be used during pregnancy?

Pregnant women should avoid using Castor Oil during pregnancy for internal use or in large quantities.

Taking orally
Our Castor Oil is a strong laxative, which can cause significant contractions in the intestines. These contractions can potentially stimulate uterine contractions, leading to early labor or complications.

Some traditional practices suggest using Castor Oil to induce labor at the end of pregnancy, this should only be done under strict medical supervision, as it can lead to complications such as intense contractions, fetal distress, or other adverse effects.

External use
For skin application our Castor Oil is considered safe. However, pregnant women should still exercise caution and perform a patch test to avoid allergic reactions or skin irritation.

Is iAMA Castor Oil earth friendly & sustainable?

100% cold pressed
The cold-pressing process is incredibly environmentally friendly as it involves fewer chemical processes and produces less waste compared to other extraction methods.

100% recyclable
Our product is 100% recyclable! Meaning the carbon footprint of iAMA will be greatly reduced.

How should I store iAMA Castor Oil?

iAMA castor oil comes in a glass bottle, unlike other brands that use a plastic one. We recommend that you store the oil in a cool, dark place and keep away from children.

Will iAMA Castor Oil stain my clothes?

iAMA Castor Oil is a thick oil. Our recommendation (from experience!) is to wear old clothes, or if using at night, to use pyjamas.

A personal tip is wearing silk or satin pyjamas - it's sticky at first but in the morning it's like there was no oil used at all!
