Grape Seed Oil

Grape Seed Oil for Skin

Natural oils - there are many of them out there with some more well-known than others. One oil that has been making its way into skincare formulations is grapeseed oil. And for a good reason! Grapeseed oil offers a myriad of great benefits and we're going to explain all of them. But first, let's discover more about what grapeseed oil is and why it belongs in your skin care routine.

What is Grape Seed Oil?

Grape seed oil is a natural oil extracted from grapes. Pressed from the seeds of grapes, it contains polyphenols and is rich in antioxidants that are good for your skin.

Grape Seed Oil for Skin

Grape seed oil is sold in health food stores and some pharmacies as an alternative medicine. The oil has been used in cooking for a long time, but in recent years it has been used in skin care products and for medicinal purposes.

Grape seed oil is a good source of linoleic acid, which is a type of omega-6 fatty acid. Linoleic acid is an essential nutrient that our bodies cannot produce, so we need to get it from dietary sources. Linoleic acid promotes normal growth and development. It works as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body.

Is Grapeseed Oily Good For All Skin Types?

Yes! Grapeseed oil is a hydrating ingredient packed with Vitamin E making it great for those with dry skin. Unlike some other natural oils e.g. coconut oil, grapeseed oil is also non-comedogenic and therefore won't clog pores. This makes it great for those with sensitive skin. Furthermore, due to its anti-microbial properties, it's great for those with oily skin, breakout-prone or acne prone skin.

Grape Seed Oil Skin Benefits

This oil also contains vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E, that are good for both your hair and your nails. Naturally, by massaging the oil into your skin, you increase blood flow and help your skin to stay hydrated. Grape Seed Oil can also be used in place of olive oil for those who have allergies.

It has been shown that grape seed oil is effective in treating various skin conditions such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, warts, acne and more. Grape seed oil is a good source of essential fatty acids, and that is why it can be effective in relieving the symptoms of dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis. In fact, studies show that it is more effective than mineral oil and vegetable oils at relieving eczema symptoms. Grape seed oil’s anti-inflammatory properties also help reduce acne and other skin inflammations. It contains linoleic acid, which is a type of fatty acid that is readily absorbed by the skin. Grape seed oil will help your skin remain hydrated and improve the skin's elasticity.
