What are the benefits of grapeseed oil? Grapes have been touted for over 6,000 years for their medicinal properties. However, grapeseed oil only surfaced in the 20th century.
Grape seed oil benefits
Grapeseed oil benefits are many. Light and non-greasy, it is non-comedogenic and will not clog your pores. Quickly absorbed by the skin, it will leave skin hydrated and smooth.
Grapeseed oil is full of flavonoids, anti-oxidants, linoleic acid and Vitamin C and E that remove debris and free radicals. These components promote the rejuvenation of collagen increasing the skin’s elasticity. Scientists have found that the linoleic acid naturally present in the oil is beneficial for the treatment of dermatitis, allergic reactions, eczema, and dry and itchy skin.
Grape seeds are cold pressed to produce the light oil. The same grapes that are used for wine are used for their seeds. This makes the grape business double duty in some ways. The finished product has a 2 year shelf life but should be kept refrigerated to prevent rancidity. The color is light green with a slightly nutty aroma.
