It is grape O’clock!

When you look at the labels of massage oils, you will notice that its basic ingredient is a carrier oil that is typically vegetable-based. The advantage of using these oil carriers is that it helps deliver the active component to the body. One such carrier is grapeseed oil; this oil is extracted from the seeds of grapes.

Grapeseeds are commonly found in the wellness industry, but recently it has found its way into skincare and CBD products. For those who enjoy wine, it’s nice to know that grapeseed oil is technically a byproduct of winemaking - when the grapes are pressed, the seeds remain. For cosmetic purposes, the oil is obtained from these seeds using a cold-pressed extraction method - leaving the antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties intact.

In addition to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, grapeseed oil is also rich in omega fatty acids and Vitamin E. Nonetheless, specialists say that strength of this oil lies in its molecular structure. The oil contains polyphenol compounds like proanthocyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants far higher than those of Vitamin E (20 x) or C (50 x).

Grapeseed oil contributes to a range of benefits, so does it improve the skin’s elasticity and flexibility. The herbal ingredient supports the Vitamin E and C in your skin to be more efficient and effective at preserving your skin.
