Awesome eyelashes with castor oil

Published: 18 September, 2020 | 2'

Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained from the seed of Ricinus communis and has been used by different cultures for thousands of years.

In general, it is used more often in cosmetic products because of its moisturising and hydrating properties, due to its fatty acid content.

Among all its uses, its benefits for the care of eyelashes and eyebrows stand out.

Benefits of castor oil

As we have mentioned, due to its rich composition in beneficial fatty acids for the skin such as ricinoleic acid, castor oil is moisturising and humectant for the skin, avoiding the loss of water in its external layer.

It intensely nourishes the hair follicle with a positive effect on microcirculation, thus helping hair growth and restoring volume, shine and softness.

Therefore, it is also used in cosmetics in all kinds of products, both in moisturisers and in make-up or facial cleansers. However, it is especially common in products for the care of eyebrows and eyelashes, as its continued use helps to maintain their good appearance and contribute to their growth.

Castor oil for long and thick eyelashes with MARNYS® Ricinlash

Ricinlash is ideal for restoring vitality, shine and hydration of your eyelashes, containing a combination of Organic Castor Oil, Marigold and Sea Buckthorn extracts in its formula.


The combination of these 100% natural and organic ingredients is ideal for the care of eyelashes and eyebrows. This is the reason why Ricinlash makes hair repair easier and provides volume and density for long and thick eyelashes.

It also regenerates damaged eyelashes and stimulates their natural growth by providing nutrients from the root, due to its exclusive formula of fatty acids and its convenient applicator brush.

Ricinlash Castor Oil is an oil obtained by cold pressing, directly from the seeds of the plant.

What does castor oil do to the eyelashes?

As we have mentioned, thanks to its composition in ricinoleic acid, castor oil has moisturising properties, providing nutrients to the hair root and helping microcirculation, thus contributing to its natural growth.

It is also a completely natural option for hair care.

Tips to make your eyelashes grow

The perfect time to add eyelash care is at the end of your bedtime facial routine, as the castor oil can work through the night. Follow the steps below to ensure proper application and to take full advantage of its properties:

  1. Make sure your lashes are completely clean and free of mascara.
  2. You have two ways to apply Ricinlash castor oil:
    • With the applicator brush soaked in the oil     
    • By massaging one or two drops into your lashes with your fingertips.
  3. The next morning, clean your face as usual by applying a soft gel, water or make-up remover to the eyelashes to remove any remaining oil.

Castor oil for eyebrows

Similarly to eyelashes, thanks to its contribution in fatty acids, the properties of castor oil are also effective on eyebrows, nourishing the skin surface and stimulating its natural growth.
