  Acme Synthetic Chemicals is the Manufacturer, Supplier and also the Exporter of Castor Oil.

 Castor Oil is classified under CAS No.8001-79-4.

 Castor Oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the Castor plant (Ricinus communis).

 Castor Oil is a colorless to very pale yellow liquid with mild or no odor or taste.

 Castor Oil is one of the most ancient oils, known for its powerful therapeutic properties. It is derived from the beans of the  castor  plant, grown in the tropical regions.

 Castor Oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, for which it is being used for centuries. The benefits of  the Castor  Oil are also derived from its high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids.

 Castor Oil & its derivatives are useful for skin, health & beauty and thus is used in various cosmetics, soaps,textiles,  massage oils,  medicines and also can be used in the manufacturing of  lubricants, hydraulic and brake fluids, paints, dyes, coatings, inks, cold,  resistant plastics, waxes, polishes, nylon, pharmaceuticals  and perfumes.

 Due to its well known anti-inflammatory properties, Castor Oil  used as an effective remedy for arthritis. It acts as excellent  massage oil for joint pain, nerve inflammation and sore muscles.Ringworm is one of the most common and stubborn  skin problems,  which occurs commonly across all age groups.

 Castor Oil contains active compounds called undecylenic acid which is very effective for treating the fungal infection.

  Castor Oil has better low temperature viscosity properties and high temperature lubrication than most vegetable oils, making it  useful as a lubricant.The lubricants company Castrol took its name from castor oil.

  Hydrogenation and saponification of Castor Oil yields 12-hydroxystearic acid which is then  reacted with lithium  hydroxide or lithium  carbonate to give high performance lubricant grease.

  Castor Oil is the raw material for the production of a number of chemicals, notably sebacic acid, undecylenic acid, zinc  undecylenate, undecylenic monoethanolamide, alcoholc11 undecylenic, methyl undecylenate, calcium undeylenate,  calcium  ricinoleate, calcium undecylenate,heptaldehyde, heptyl alcohol, undecanoic acid, zinc ricinoleate, cetyl  ricinoleate,  glyceryl mono  ricinoleate, glyceryl mono undecylenate, heptyl undecylenate,  methyl ricinoleate,  pentaerythritol mono  ricinoleate,polyricinoleic  acid, ricinoleic acid,  methyl acetyl ricinoleate,  and nylon-11.
