Use Of Castor Oil For Lather?
Is it okay to use castor oil for external use as an eyelash / eyebrow serum?
Hi Windy, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Castor oil is known to have benefits for growing and thickening lashes. However, you need to know in advance that this benefit has not been proven in medical research that has been done. Because it is not proven in research to grow or thicken eyelashes, its use is not actually recommended.
However, its use actually does not bring certain bad effects. If you still want to try using castor oil, you can still try it even though you are breastfeeding. Before using castor oil for your lashes, you should pay attention to the following things:
Make sure you use pure castor oil and don't have a mixture of other ingredients, especially preservatives and fragrances. Use with care not to get in your eyes. If accidental contact with eyes, rinse eyes immediately under running water. Using castor oil still carries the risk of causing allergies or irritation on the skin, so try to apply a small amount at the corner of your eye first to make sure your skin doesn't get allergic or irritated. If allergy or irritation occurs, stop using it immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
