We tend to spend a lot of time and money in finding that perfect mascara or fake eyelashes that will make our eyes pop (not literally though). Alas! Once we wipe the mascara or pull the fake eyelashes off, our eyes lose their magical effect (like Cinderella at midnight).

Castor oil has very high levels of ricinoleic acid.2 This acid increases the production of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2)—a group of compounds that have hormone-like effects. PGE2 stimulates a variety of cells due to which it can stimulate the growth of hair follicles. Castor oil is also rich in omega-6 fatty acids which can nourish your eyelids and promote the growth of healthy eyelashes.
