Winter Skincare Essentials: Discover the Power of Castor Oil and Raw Local Honey in OmMade Organic Skincare's Upgraded Masks

Winter is officially here, and as the chill sets in, the Uggs come on, and the heaters turn up, it’s the perfect time to give your skin some extra love and the care it deserves. To help hang on to that glow of summer for as long as possible and prevent your skin from turning into the texture of a leather handbag, we’ve upgraded two of our favourite products at OmMade Organic Skincare, packing them with two powerhouse ingredients that provide a stack of benefits.

Our Adzuki Face Mask and Scrub and the Charcoal Face Mask now have the addition of castor oil and raw local honey, respectively, providing extra nourishment and hydration, even in the harshest of winter weather. 

In this blog, we’re breaking down each new ingredient and product, talking about their key features and benefits, along with tips on how to add them to your skincare routine—so your skin will be as smooth, soft and plump as a baby’s butt this season!

Castor oil is a luxurious, thick vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the tropical castor plant (otherwise known as Ricinus communis, mainly grown in Africa, South America, and India). It’s packed with moisturising fatty acids like ricinoleic, linoleic, and stearic acids, making it a favourite ingredient in skincare, cosmetics, and personal care products. 

One of the major drawcards of castor oil is that it’s 100% pure and a single-ingredient product, meaning it hasn’t been modified and is perfect for those seeking clean skincare.


  • Increases moisture – rich in fatty acids, it deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin, keeping it soft and supple. 
  • Prevents wrinkles – filled with antioxidants that fight free radicals in the body, it’s a powerful anti-aging ingredient that prevents fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduces puffiness – with anti-inflammatory properties, it helps reduce puffiness and swelling, leaving skin fresh and rejuvenated.
  • Soothing and healing – the anti-inflammatory benefits also reduce redness and soothe irritated skin, perfect for those cold winter days or if you have sunburn.
  • Fights acne – it’s also anti-bacterial and promotes a clear complexion by fighting bacteria and preventing acne and infections.

Our Adzuki Face Mask and Scrub with Castor Oil is your new winter skincare BFF!

Now, with the addition of castor oil, this multitasking mask not only exfoliates and detoxifies but also hydrates and nourishes your skin.

Check out the key ingredients and benefits below. 

  • Castor Oil

Locks in moisture for soft, hydrated skin and reduces inflammation and redness.

  • Kaolin Clay

Gently extracts impurities and toxins while removing dead skin cells for a smooth complexion.

The natural enzymes promote cell turnover and improve skin tone and texture for a radiant glow.

Who doesn’t love a bit of honey in their life?! 

While you might enjoy slathering it on warm, buttered toast or adding a spoonful to your herbal tea, raw honey—that golden nectar bees produce in hives—is having a moment in the world of natural skincare. With its healing properties and benefits, it’s loaded with nutrients, enzymes, and nurturing compounds, making it a welcome addition to any skin or self-care routine. 


  • Ultra-moisturising – acting as a natural humectant, it penetrates and hydrates the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in plumper, softer and more glowing skin.
  • Reduces signs of aging – packed with natural antioxidants that fight free radicals, it prevents fine lines and wrinkles while drawing moisture to the skin.
  • Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory – it prevents and treats acne and breakouts by killing bacteria on the skin while reducing redness and inflammation caused by breakouts.
  • Exfoliating – a natural exfoliator, it gently removes dead skin cells and works to unclog pores of dirt and debris that can cause skin issues. 
  • Soothing and healing – great for wound care, sunburn, and even eczema or psoriasis, it can also reduce redness, acne scars and pigmentation, promoting a brighter complexion. 

Raw honey is generally safe for most skin types, but those with allergies to pollen, celery or bee products should avoid it. Always perform a patch test to ensure no adverse reactions.

See the key ingredients and benefits below.

  • Raw Local Honey

Containing amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that improve overall health and appearance of the skin, it deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin.

  • Bentonite Clay

Draws out toxins, heavy metals and impurities from the skin, absorbs excess oil, gently exfoliates and promotes healing of acne and blemishes.

  • Kaolin Clay
Also draws out impurities without stripping the skin of natural oils, balances oil production, removes dead skin cells and soothes and calms sensitive or irritated skin. 
  • Activated Charcoal

  • Frankincense Essential Oil
Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it promotes cell turnover, heals scars and blemishes and soothes and calms the skin, especially redness and irritations.

Rinse thoroughly, pat dry, and follow up with our Chamomile Toner before applying your preferred moisturiser or serum (try the Hemp Seed Face Serum with Red Raspberry Seed and Kakadu Plum.

Winter weather can be brutal on your skin, but our upgraded masks—the Adzuki Face Mask and Scrub with Castor Oil, which hydrates and soothes, and the Charcoal Face Mask with Raw Local Honey, which detoxifies and moisturises—are the perfect duo to keep your skin looking radiant and feeling nourished all season long.
