- base oil
The seed of the grape plant, Vitis vinifera, yields a fine textured, linoleic-rich oil. Grape seed extract is classified as a powerful antioxidant, anti-degenerative, restructuring, moisturizing and tonifying. Grape Seed Oil is also one of several plant emollients that mimic the lipid content of the skin. It helps stabilize and maintain the structure of the skin's complex inter-cellular matrix, preventing moisture loss and cell damage and promoting the skin's soft, smooth, healthy appearance.
Grapeseed oil is truly superb in every regard. It has a mild green color with a pleasant odor, silken texture, and great absorption rate. Generally employed as a base oil for many creams, lotions and as a general carrier oil. Grapeseed is especially useful for skin types that do not absorb oils too well, and it does not leave a greasy feeling. Wonderful for those with skin sensitivities because of its natural non-allergenic properties. It absorbs well and imparts both a pleasant odor and taste.
