RIZINUS - The miracle tree

The plant

Ricinus (ricinus communis) is a very fast-growing, undemanding plant from the spurge family. Parts of the plant's seeds are highly toxic, but the oil that can be extracted from the flowers has been used as a remedy for thousands of years. Castor oil is used in medicine as a natural laxative for digestive problems and very often in cosmetics, as it is moisturising and disinfectant. Castor oil is not used as animal feed and is very environmentally friendly to grow as the plant does not need pesticides or excessive amounts of water to thrive. It is not for nothing that castor oil is colloquially known as the "miracle tree". The very viscous castor oil for fabric production is produced in Italy.

The production

The castor oil is then thickened with a fruit acid so that it can be spun into a thread. This manufacturing process is CO2 positive[1] because the plant binds more CO2 over its entire lifetime than is released during the entire manufacturing process. No other material can currently do this.

BREDDY'S has carried out multiple tests on its products to determine whether microplastics are released from the fabric blend with bio-based polyamide during washing - all of these tests were negative.
