Grapeseed oil is an important source of antioxidants and nutrients and it helps to protect the skin against the abuse of environmental elements. The high contents of omega 6 fatty acids are known to nourish and improve the texture of skin. Grapeseed Carrier Oil is one of the lightest carrier oils; it absorbs easily into the skin to deliver intense moisture without irritating skin, leaving an oily residue, or clogging pores, and makes it one of the most ideal oils for massage. This also makes it ideal for skin types that are oily, sensitive, and mature as well as skin afflicted with acne and eczema.
Below are some of the common benefits and uses for Grapeseed Oil:
- Relieves itchy, dry skin
- Provides a moisture barrier
