As you may know, castor oil is extracted by pressing beans of castor oil plant and has long been used as a medicine. It’s also used in several skin care products and cosmetics. It’s claimed that it has properties that can reduce facial wrinkles.

Although castor oil has such properties, no direct evidence exists that can prove this claim. However, studies are available that show that castor oil is a very potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, and both these properties are helpful in warding off free radicals and slow down the aging process.

Earth’s Wisdom today wants to make you aware of the wonderful benefits of castor oil to reduce wrinkles.

Castor oil consists of fatty acids that have antioxidant and moisturizing properties and can enhance skin health. Wrinkles are minimized by castor oil due to these fatty acids.

There are also emollient properties in castor oil due to which the texture of skin is improved and it appears healthy.

Using Castor Oil on Skin

If you want to reduce wrinkles with castor oil, you’ll first have to buy pure castor oil, preferably extracted from organically-grown castor plant. If you can get it in a dropper bottle, you can apply it easily. Castor oil is also available in the form of balms or sticks (ChapSticks) which are great for using around mouth and lips.

Sometimes you can find castor oil that is pre-diluted with other plant oils, which are known as carrier oils. These enhance absorption. Even you on your own can dilute castor oil at a 1:1 ratio, i.e. 1 part of castor oil and 1 part of another oil. As the other oil, the most recommended ones are grapeseed, olive and avocado.

Using Castor Oil on Various Wrinkle-prone Areas on Face

To minimize wrinkles in various areas of your face, castor oil is very safe and effective. To apply it in these areas, cleanse your facial skin in the morning and wipe any wetness. Take drops of castor oil on your fingertip and apply them one-by-one to the under eye skin, around mouth, on forehead area, chin and neckline, particularly on the wrinkle-prone areas. Also apply it on the bridge of nose, near the outer corners and between your eyes.

Leave the oil on your skin for around 20 minutes. During this it will be absorbed in your skin. Next gently wash all the areas where you applied the oil. Later you can apply your routine skin care products and cosmetics.

Repeat all these steps every evening too. If you incorporate these steps in your daily routine, you can get long-lasting benefits.

Other Benefits of Castor Oil for Skin and Overall Health

Castor oil is not only useful for reducing wrinkles, but can also offer many other beauty benefits. It’s a well-known ingredient in cosmetics and skincare products. It has other benefits such as:

  • Acne treatment
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Moisturization of skin
  • Antioxidant supplement
  • Thickening of eyelashes
  • Stimulating hair growth


Applying castor oil topically is generally considered safe. Nevertheless there can be skin allergies and reactions. These include:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Pain
  • Rashes
  • Swelling

Therefore, it’s a good idea to apply it on a small skin patch before applying it to the entire face. This will make you aware if your skin is allergic to castor oil or not. If you find one or more of the above symptoms, you should discontinue its use at once. If you get a serious skin reaction, seek medical help.

Castor oil is being used for skin health since thousands of years. Though there are no enough scientific studies to prove that it reduces wrinkles, several users have reported that it’s effective for that purpose. Since there are minimal side effects, it’s definitely worth trying after testing it for any allergies – you can only lose wrinkles, nothing else!
