Grapeseed Oil | Carrier
- GREAT FOR SKIN AND HAIR
A by-product of winemaking, grapeseed oil is seen as a healthier vegetable oil alternative commonly used to promote healthy skin and hair.
High in vitamin E, omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid, using grapeseed oil as a carrier oil for the skin is a fantastic option due to its advanced levels of moisture and absorbability.
Grapeseed is a particularly sound choice for skin types that do not absorb oils well, as it does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin. It also contains naturally non-allergenic properties.
