Organic and Fair for Life castor oil

We’re proud to provide the first Fair for Life & organic-certified castor oil worldwide. This unique product derives from a strong and long-term co-working process between our Indian partner, Castor Products Company (CPC), and us. Our partnership is based on trust, transparency, and engagement on both sides.

Our partner’s castor seeds grow in the Kutch region in Gujarat, India. Gujarat is characterized by its semi-arid climate, with an average rainfall of 200 mm per year. Under these challenging climatic conditions, the castor plant represents the main source of income for smallholders.

The families have learned how to manage their farms ecologically to ensure sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their future generations.

We have engaged in bottom-up-projects in Gujarat by supporting the Fair for Life-fund.
