Skin Benefits and Uses of Grape Seed Oil

Grape seed oil benefits for skin

 

grape-seed-oilGrape seed oil is a pale green oil that is cold pressed from the seeds of Vitus vinifera grapes, which are widely used in winemaking, especially sauvignon blanc.

It is also widely used in natural skin care products to help produce luminous, youthful skin.

Grape seed oil is beneficial to skin in myriad ways, and because it is cold pressed, all of its nutrients remain intact, and go to work immediately to help improve skin’s hydration levels, texture and tone.

Because grape seed oil acts as a mild astringent, it has the potential to help fight acne gently but effectively, without leaving skin dry and flaky.

Grape seed oil is lightweight so it penetrates easily without clogging pores, and it is rich in vitamin E, so it acts as a powerful antioxidant that can fight signs of aging by supporting the skin’s ability to manage the damage caused by free radicals. Because it helps the skin manage oxidative stress, grape seed oil reduces the appearance of the various signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and dark circles beneath the eyes by boosting the health of skin cells, regenerating cells beneath the skin’s surface and strengthening the skin proteins collagen and elastin, which are essential for youthful, supple skin.

Grape seed oil also contains high levels of linoleic acid, which is considered an essential fatty acid that provides nutrients for the skin that help support the barrier layer so damaging toxins have to work harder to target vulnerable skin cells.

Uses of Grape seed oil

Grape seed oil is also rich in nutrients including Omega-6 fatty acids, making it an excellent option in the kitchen, especially based on the results of a Harvard study suggesting it helps support heart health and function when used in place of saturated fat.

Source and sustainability of Grape seed oil

Because grape seed oil is a by-product of the wine-making process, it is highly sustainable, especially so given the growth in production of New Zealand’s distinctive wines.

Xtend-Life procures its grape seed oil from the New Zealand company Oil Seed Extractions Ltd., supporting not only sustainable environmental practices, but also its country’s economic growth and stability.
