There’s a reason we use grape seed oil as a base for our oils and balms—whether you’re addressing aging, acne, sallowness, or unbalance, its healing properties are universal. The benefits of nutrient rich grape seed oil run as deep as its history—and we’re certainly not arguing with its 6000-year-old reputation as a healing agent for both internal and external ailments.
Take Your Vitamins
Extremely rich in beta-carotene and Vitamins D, C, and E, grape seed oil has a high concentration of essential fatty acids like palmitic, stearic, and linoleic acid that are proven to be effective at minimizing scars and diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also rich in polyphenols: anti-inflammatory antioxidants that slow the aging process and prevent acne outbreaks.
Treat Oil with Oil
While it may seem counter-intuitive to treat oily skin with an oil, the reality is that oiliness is actually a reaction of skin that is too dry. Grape seed oil is light to the touch and never leaves skin feeling heavy—instead, it absorbs quickly, penetrates blocked pores and breakouts, and effectively moisturizes while balancing both dry and oily patches.
Build Collagenand Plump the Skin
Biochemical research has found grape seed oil to be rich in oligomeric proanthocyanidins which remove free radicals and promote the restoration of collagen at the cellular level. This means smooth, firm, youthful skin with minimized signs of damage.
