Grape Seed (Vitis vinifera) oil is extracted from wine grapes cultivated in South Africa.
What is good about Grape Seed Oil?
The oil contains high levels of linoleic acid (omega-6) a fatty acid which can help control the skin’s inflammatory response and manage acne. It also helps protect the skin barrier, while helping to prevent TEWL (transepidermal water loss), promoting soft and supple skin.
What does Grape Seed Oil do?
It is also an abundant source of vitamin C, vitamin E, and proanthrocyanidin (a powerful antioxidant), which can help prevent and protect against pollution and free radical damage. The rich vitamin E content replenishes lipids that have been lost, which helps maintain a protective barrier and hold onto moisture.
Grape seed oil contains also polyphenols and amino acids, which help fight premature aging by stimulating collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and strengthening elasticity. It also contains beta-carotene, which helps stimulate cell turnover.
Who is Grape Seed Oil good for?
Grapeseed oil offers antimicrobial properties that deeply cleanses the skin. It is also lightweight, non-comedogenic, and penetrates the skin quickly, leaving the skin soft, supple, and hydrated.
