Grapeseed oil is a clear yellow to light green oil with a fine, light texture and a faint odour that is easily absorbed into the skin without feeling greasy. It is made from pressing the seeds of grapes, which are often a byproduct of the winemaking industry. The grapeseed oil is then refined and winterised. Winterisation is a process whereby the oil is chilled, making the wax solidify. The wax is then removed, leaving a clearer product that makes grapeseed oil lighter on the skin.
Grapeseed oil is gentle on the skin and can be safely used as a carrier oil. It is lighter than other carrier oils, like jojoba oil, and more quickly absorbed, leaving no greasy feeling on the skin. This makes it ideal for use on the face and is excellent for giving heavier oils a lighter feel. Grapeseed oil has a slight astringency which benefits oily skin.
It is also rich in vitamin E and linoleic acid.
