How is it made?
Cold pressed from the seeds of a grape
What is it used for?
Grape seed oil is a light, ‘dry’ oil that rapidly absorbs into the skin. It is exceptionally high in antioxidants and omega-6 fatty acids making it effective against eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Because of the high absorbance rate and dry feel, it is great for skin types that don’t absorb oils well or are often left feeling greasy. Grape seed oil is effective at healing stretch marks. Be aware of the short shelf life when making body products with it!
Many sellers of grape seed oil supply oils that were extracted using harmful chemicals. Be sure to find a good source that uses cold pressing techniques and no chemicals.
The product must be stored in a dry and fresh place. The oil is sensitive to light, air (oxygen) and heat. The unopened package has a shelf life of 2 years, but an opened bottle may only last 6 months.
