#1 Castor Oil

Acme Hardesty Co. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

#1 Castor Oil is used as a co-solubilizer/carrier for dyes and rinses, as well as nail polish. It is a natural product, made from the beans of the castor plant which can be grown in any tropical region. Although Castor Oil still has medicinal uses today, it has many more applications as a cosmetic ingredient, an industrial chemical and a specialty chemical. As a natural polyol, it is commanding increasing attention as a highly effective ingredient in polyurethane applications, replacing the traditional petroleum-based polyols. Another advantage of Castor Oil is that it is not a food oil, and so it is not subject to the controversies that can arise with other oils.
