We can all agree that aged great wine only gets better. But what if wine’s ingredients, such as grape seeds, could truly delay the effects of ageing? It just so happens that, at least in the world of skin care, other compounds made from grapes are giving wine a run for its money. One such ingredient is grapeseed oil.
What are the advantages of grapeseed oil, and how can it support healthy skin maintenance? We’ll spotlight the main ingredient in our newest skin care product as we celebrate its introduction today. The advantages of grapeseed oil are prominently featured in both our Intensive Nourishing Facial Oil and Intensive Nourishing Balm!
How Does Grapeseed Oil Work?
If you guessed that grapeseed oil has something to do with wine, congratulations! The microscopic grape seed oil are used to make Vitus Viniferous Oil, also referred to as grapeseed oil. It will be pale yellow-green in hue and have a smooth feel.
Because of its abundant natural supply of antioxidants and skin-beneficial substances, grapeseed oil has a powerful punch. High quantities of vitamin E and omega fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, support optimum moisture levels in the skin. Proanthocyanidins and other phytochemicals, which have been related in studies to the prevention of skin cancer, provide important advantages for UV defense.
Sources of Grapeseed Oil
Winemaking produces grapeseed oil as a byproduct. Tiny seeds are left over after pressing grapes to make wine. The residual grape seeds are then cold-pressed to extract the grapeseed oil from them. The natural skin-loving elements of the oil, such as omega fatty acids, are preserved through this process.
Although there are several ways to extract oil from seeds, cold pressing is the most effective for skin care. This guarantees that neither the oil nor the active components have undergone any chemical alterations. This aids in maintaining its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant capabilities.
