CVS's Castor Oil- Is it the right one?

I've read that castor oil is great for your skin. However, both the castor oil I found and wal-mart and at CVS say they are laxatives. I also read that it should be cold-pressed. I ended up buying the CVS brand castor oi, but it doesn't say cold-pressed and it's only use listed is as a laxative?

Should I use the CVS one on my skin? Or, do I need to find a different brand?

The laxative variety is usually a hexane extract - so no, it's not the right one. But, it's not that bad either.

If you have a GNC or Vitamin World nearby, they'll have it.

GNC didn't have it, nor did Vitamin World. However, I went to a Vitamin Shoppe and they did. So, thanks! 'Preciate the help. Now that I have the right stuff, I'm good to go. Just hope putting the laxative derivative on my skin wasn't too harmful.
