Yoga Journal Review

For longer lashes many women rely on mascara or fake lashes. For fuller brows, they turn to cosmetics or microblading, a semi-permanent form of brow tattooing. There’s nothing wrong with any of those options, but if you’re looking for something that’s both long-lasting and natural, you might want to consider a product not found in Sephora or salons: Castor oil.

Many people report that, if regularly applied, castor oil, an oil derived from the bean of the castor tree, can help grow thicker, longer lashes and Cara Delivigne-like brows. The oil contains fatty acids that may nourish hair follicles. What’s more, research suggests that ricinoleic acid, a compound in castor oil, inhibits prostaglandin D2, a protein that prevents hair growth. Ricinolic acid also stimulates receptors that cause blood vessels to dilate, allowing nutrient-rich blood to reach the follicle and potentially stimulate hair growth.

Cliganic Castor Oil is cold-pressed, which means it uses an extraction process that preserves nutrients. Our testers raved about the mascara wand and liner, which made application easy and mess-free. And though neither noticed a huge difference in the length of their lashes or fullness of their brows after a month’s use—a pretty short period of time—both said their lashes and brows felt less dry.

I really love my Cliganic Organic Castor oil. It’s been working beautifully on my eyelashes and eyebrows, leaving them shiny and taming strays. Its the only product that comes with a brow wand and lash liner in a drawstring bag so I can use it on the go! I really appreciate that Cliganic is certified organic so I can use it on my dry skin and hair without irritation. When we tried it on a dry skin patch on our dog, even with his licking, the patch was gone in only a few days. It is our new hair and skincare staple! – Deidre F.

This is the best Castor Oil I have tried so far. It has a pleasant, mild smell, and it’s not as thick and gooey as some of the others. I love the consistency, which is hydrating without being sticky. It also came with tools such as a little funnel and a “mascara” tube and brush so you can easily apply it to eyelashes and eyebrows. After a few weeks, my brows looked thicker and so did my eyelashes. –  Lindsay T.
