What is Grapeseed Oil?
Grapeseed oil is naturally derived from the seeds of grapes. The oil’s cleansing properties gently remove excess sebum and dead skin cells, making it an effective skin decongestant. Grapeseed oil also has some antimicrobial properties that help clear and prevent acne.
Skin benefits of Grapeseed Oil
Grapeseed oil’s anti-inflammatory properties help reduce acne and other skin inflammations such as dry skin, eczema and psoriasis. Grapeseed Oil is high in linoleic acid which helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier reducing redness and inflammation caused by breakouts.
Hydrates and firms
Grapeseed oil contains Vitamin E, an amazing ingredient that reduces inflammation and hydrates the skin to plump fine lines and wrinkles.
Evens skin tone
Grapeseed Oil contains powerful antioxidants that studies have shown can lighten scars and fade pigmentation due to its ability to boost collagen production.
Why We Use Grapeseed Oil
“Grapeseed oil is a hydrating ingredient packed with Vitamin E making it great for those with dry skin. Unlike some other natural oils such as 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.” - Shelley Martin, Co-Founder & New Product Development Lead
