What Is Grapeseed Oil?

As a refined carrier oil, Grapeseed Oil is odourless and has a light yellow/green colour. It has high levels of vitamin E, A, C, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids, which is why it is a popular treatment for a variety of cosmetic applications.  


The Benefits Of Grapeseed Oil For Skin

The light consistency of Grapeseed Oil means that it easily absorbs into the skin, leaving it with a soft, satin-like finish. It is also believed to be beneficial for sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin due to its non-comedogenic properties as it doesn’t clog pores. Its high levels of linoleic acid, vitamins, calcium and essential fatty acids means it is shown to be a powerful source of antioxidants while also containing anti-inflammatory, emollient and anti-ageing properties. These properties help nourish and moisturise the skin.
