Description: This oil is obtained from the seeds of grapes cultivated in the Central valley of Chile. The oil is extracted without solvents or any kind of chemical processing. The oil is obtained by cold pressing followed by a thorough filtration, maintaining the components of the oil.
Aromatic Description: Grapeseed Organic Carrier Oil has a sweet balsamic aromatic scent reminiscent of aged wine.
Common Uses: Grapeseed oil is an important source of antioxidants and nutrients and it helps to protect the skin against the abuse of environmental elements. The high contents of omega 6 fatty acids are also known to nourish and improve the texture of skin. The skin rapidly absorbs this oil, which makes it a good massage oil. It is light and dry and you can use it wherever you might use a high linoleic oil or in cosmetic formulations to tone up the skin.
There are some good phytosterols in this oil which are 0.8% to 1.5% unsaponifiable. It contains campesterol, beta-sitosterol, and stigmasterol, all of which helps protect the skin's moisture barrier and relieves itching due to dry skin. With a high content of linoleic acid the oil provides moisturizing benefits and prevents water loss. However, it is a great choice for any skin care formulation meant for dull and stressed skin.
In addition, Grapeseed Carrier Oil applied to the feet at the beginning of each day can help deal with many foot problems such as itching, scaly flaking, and odor.
Consistency: Grapeseed Carrier Oil is also one of the lightest carrier oils available.
Absorption: Absorbs easily into the skin.
