Grapeseed Carrier Oil

Grapeseed Carrier Oil

Pressed. Popular and cost effective, Grapeseed Oil is an all-purpose carrier that can be used for aromatherapy massage and beauty treatments. It is very light in texture which means it is quickly and easily absorbed by the skin, leaving a smooth, satin finish without a greasy trace.

Grapeseed Oil is suitable for all skin types including those with nut allergies, and has good emollient properties that help calm and soothe sensitive or irritated skin. It has mildly astringent qualities which help to tone the skin, which can be helpful with oily and acne-prone skin.

Containing copious quantities of linoleic acid, Grapeseed Oil helps to control cellular metabolism and maintain the health of skin cell membranes. It also contains Vitamin E which assists in the fading of age spots, stretch marks and wrinkles. However, the large quantities of linoleic acid mean that the shelf life of Grapeseed Oil is not as long as many other carriers, but is still at least 6 months when stored correctly.

Although it is possible to obtain Grapeseed Oil by cold expression, the very low yield using this method means the price is disproportionally expensive, therefore very little oil is produced this way. Applying heat during the pressing process increases the yeild and keeps the price down.
