A versatile organic ingredient for makers of food, medicine, cosmetic and household products
(Boulder, Colorado) – Organic India is leading the way once again by announcing a new Organic Castor Oil, the first of its kind to be introduced to North America. This new organic product is primarily available in bulk to manufacturers in 55-gallon drums, but it can also be special ordered in smaller quantities.
Organic castor oil is a versatile substance that has hundreds of industrial uses including use as an ingredient in a multitude of food, medicine, cosmetic and household products. It is gaining in popularity in part because it is a renewable resource that is a biodegradable and eco-friendly alternative to petrochemicals. It is used in many personal care products such as creams, lotions and lip balms where it is prized for its skin softening attributes. It is also known to have therapeutic value, including use as a topical relief for swelling and dry skin; a treatment for eye irritation; and for internal use to treat constipation, arthritis, tremors, body aches, headaches, diarrhea, colic, colds and asthma. Castor oil also has applications in household products, such as in paints, inks and lubricating oils.
Organic India’s castor oil is made from USDA certified organic castor beans that are pressed in a certified organic mechanical press. Their castor oil is a special grade of “pale pressed” oil that is clear, very pure and of the highest quality. Organic India’s organic castor oil is not only good for the people that use the products made from it, it’s also good for the planet and the community where it is created. Operating under a sustainable business model, Organic India is the largest grower of organic herbs in India.
In addition to organic castor oil for the manufacturing sector, Organic India is a branded company that offers a line of delicious Tulsi Tea that includes 6 blends. The company’s consumer products are marketed exclusively by Om Organics, and sold in hundreds of stores across the U.S. including Whole Foods Markets. In addition to Tulsi Tea, Organic India offers organic herbal supplements, bulk organic herbs, and an ever-expanding line of high quality organic spices, beans, seeds and grains.
