Did you know that the ever-popular grape seed oil is produced in abundance as a by-product of winemaking? Aside from encouraging our wine lover’s habits, there are many other benefits to grape seed oil.
Often used as the carrier oil (emollient) for bath and body product, it leaves a light thin glossy film over the skin. It keeps the skin moisturized, and has the most linoleic acid that other carrier oils. The easy reaction of the linoleic acid with oxygen in the air forms cross linking and the formation of this stable protective film.
Aside from the protective film, grape seed oil also contains the same antioxidant as the much-lauded green tea. It is called procyanidolic oligomers (PCOs). It is known to counter act free radicals in our skin that leads to aging. It is also known to have better skin restorative properties than Vitamin C and E.
