Here's an update:
I received 100 mL of RA and although it solidifies in freezer, as expected based on its freezing point, it has a strong odor that is different that what I would expect a plant oil to smell like. I am reluctant to use it on my scalp. The company was defensive when I queried them and sent a CoA but we all know CoA's can be generated easily. This is a real bummer because I've seen how effective oral castor is an really think topical RA will work.
There are many sellers of RA on Alibaba. It's not a rare chemical by any means and should not be difficult to get.
What was the cost of the Ricinoleic Acid and how long would that quantity last for daily application?
But yeah I'm with you on being a bit worried about putting strange industrial solvents from sketchy Chinese labs on my body...
I just don't see how topical castor oil could be effective due to its gigantic molecular weight. Oral castor oil might be very effective but I tried oral castor oil for about a week and I got the shits like crazy. Not sure if it was caused by the castor oil, so I want to try again to make sure. I'm just scared of trying again because I don't want to have to subject my butthole to that again...
