Castor seed oil is especially valued for its life-saving action on hair, eyelashes and nails. It strengthens, repairs and stimulates their growth. Applied to the edges of the lashes, the oil lengthens and thickens them. Delicate castor seed oil massages on your nails strengthens, brightens and whitens them.

In facial care, castor seed oil protects the skin from external aggressions thanks to its richness in linoleic acid and effectively combats skin dryness.

A natural beauty routine deserves the most serious consistency. Whether at home or on holiday, it is there a must to always have your favourite plant oil at hand.
This is why the plant oils of the Officine Universelle Buly are available in a new 30ml format to facilitate their transport and serve your beauty, from near and far. Small in size but very practical, this new vial comes in a colour of immaculate charm: white. This innovative format is ideal for lovers of complete routines: it allows the combination of different oils and thus promotes the synergy of all their salving virtues.

Endowed with healing ricinoleic acid, castor oil helps reduce dark spots on the face and hands. Apply as a moisturising mask in the evening for about 20 minutes. Remove excess oil with Eau Ionisée Hygiénique Rectifiée.

Skin and hair types

Castor oil is suitable for all skin types. We recommend its application on brittle hair, lacking vitality.

Advice for Use & Care

The pipette allows precise and practical use.

Daily Care
To strengthen your nails, apply a few drops of castor oil to your hands and massage them thoroughly. Place your flask on the bedside table and apply it before sleep.

Treatment Care

Occasional Care

Castor oil has been used in the preparation for remedies and treatments for millennia. A small tropical shrub from the euphorbiaceae family, castor gives life to seeds covered with spines. They are cold pressed for the extraction of the coveted oil.
Mainly composed of ricinoleic acid, it surprises with its thick and syrupy texture. Known for its multiple virtues, it is said that this oil was Cleopatra’s favourite.

In a ceramic bowl set in a double boiler, melt a teaspoon of castor oil, a teaspoon of tamanu oil, a knob of shea butter and a teaspoon of beeswax. When the mixture cools (and before it solidifies) add a drop of peppermint essential oil. Pour it into a previously sterilised small container with a screw lid. Once solidified, take a little bit of balm and massage your lips. Repeat this every morning. This balm can be kept for several months in the fridge.
