Castor oil: all the properties of this cosmetic ingredient for eyelashes and face
How it is produced and how it looks
The word "castor" is still used not because the oil and its production actually have anything to do with beavers (never!), but rather, as it seems that castor oil was used in ancient times to replace an aromatic extract of animal origin, Castoreum.
