This base, obtained from by-products of wine production, gained its well-deserved popularity only in the 20th century. Being one of the best for oily skin care, the oil shows unique tonic and regenerative abilities. The anti-aging and firming effect, as well as the ability to be absorbed into the skin without a residue, distinguish this base against the background of other vegetable oils.
Characteristics grape seed oil
Light, delicate, fully absorbed grape seed oil is considered one of the most delicate in aromatherapy. Universal characteristics and a unique balanced composition of microelements distinguish it against the background of other bases and turn it into a universal favorite, because this oil shows itself perfectly even on oily skin.
Grape seed oil differs from other base oils in a very high content of linoleic acid. Only sunflower can be considered its competitor in fatty acid composition. The dominance of linoleic acid in the composition explains the rapid absorption of the base and its particular effectiveness on oily skin.
The oil also contains other fatty acids - stearic, oleic, arachinic, palmitic. They enhance the penetrating and restoring ability of linoleic, affect the texture and turgor of the skin.
The vitamins and minerals in this oil are contained, albeit not in such a large amount, as in more nutritious bases, but in an ideal proportion for skin absorption. The optimal amount of vitamin E, as well as the entire set of vitamins from the so-called “beauty vitamins” allows the oil to have an effective regenerative effect. It is believed that a tablespoon of grape oil can completely make up the daily requirement for vitamin E.
One of the most valuable characteristics of this base is the high content of antioxidants in the form of procyanides (inherent in cold-pressed oils and much less pronounced in refined compositions). Particular effectiveness of the antioxidant properties of grape seed oil is manifested due to the fact that all antioxidants are contained in the unsaponifiable fraction and create a kind of protective barrier with prolonged exposure on the skin.
The oil also contains natural chlorophyll, tannins, and protein, which play an important role in toning the skin and have a regenerative effect.
The composition of vitamins and minerals, tannins and a combination of fatty acids is considered a natural treasure and gives this base particularly valuable properties. It is in this combination that the components of grape oil lower cholesterol, have an anti-inflammatory effect and act as a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging effect.
