Castor oil BP

CASTOR OIL is the fixed oil obtained by cold expression from the seeds of Ricinus communis (L). It is a clear, almost colourless or slightly yellow, viscid liquid; odour very slightly and characteristic, taste at first bland, but afterwards slightly acrid.

The BP grade Castor oil complies the British Pharmacopeia monograph.

We also supply High Refined Castor oil Ph.Eur. This grade of Castor oil meets the standards of BP and Ph.Eur and is derived by a process that uses high refining method designed to provide a very high quality Castor oil that is intended for use in the manufacture of parenteral preparations.

High Refined Castor oil is a highly refined grade oil used in Pharmaceutical applications and is special due to the low moisture and acid value. The seeds of Castor are cold pressed without heat. It then follows a high refinery process resulting in a stable and steady and very high quality oil for Pharmaceutical and parenteral application.

Our High Refined Castor oil exceeds the requirements of the current version of the European Pharmacopoeia monograph.
