Product of the Week - Grapeseed Oil!
7th June, 2017
This week's featured product is both easy-to-use and easy-to-find: Grapeseed Oil!
Rich in linoleic acid, essential vitamins and beneficial minerals, grapeseed oil is a popular candidate for skin care cosmetics; it is easily and well absorbed, light and non-irritating. Grapeseed oil is made from the seeds of wine-producing grapes, helping to reduce waste and provide an effective, cost-friendly alternative to more expensive light oils. It is an excellent oil for oily, or acne prone skin as it doesn't leave a greasy feeling or any irritation when used in cosmetic treatments. As well as it this, grapeseed oil also helps to balance out oils that are heavier or thicker when used in cosmetic formulations.
Because grapeseed oil contains such a high proportion of linoleic acid, a fatty acid essential for the health of the skin and cell membranes, it can be considered an essential cosmetic ingredient for skin care. As grapeseed oil is so rich in vitamins, minerals and protein, it can be used in almost all cosmetics from soaps and lip balms to body creams and bath oils.
We hope you'll give it a try sometime!
