EXTRACTION METHOD: Grapeseed oil is mentioned in the Old Testament and is believed to have been used for its health benefits for thousands of years. Our Grapeseed Oil is extracted from the seed of the grape and refined.
Our Grapeseed Oil contains a multitude of nutrients. Packed full of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins C, D and E and Beta Carotene, this nourishing oil is ideal for skincare.
Containing around 60% Linoleic Acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid, makes this oil good for those with oily skin. It is an excellent moisturiser but won’t block your pores, providing intense moisturisation to face and body.
This lightweight oil is rich in Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, containing more than Olive and Soya Oil, making Grapeseed perfect for those with mature skin. Antioxidants helps to fight damaging causing free radicals in the skin that cause premature aging.
Grapeseed Oil is frequently used as a base for many cosmetic skincare applications because of its super light texture and wealth of natural benefits. It is an effective emollient, absorbed by the skin very easily and at a fast pace. It will leave your skin soft, smooth and hydrated without feeling greasy.
Grapeseed Oil is a popular choice for massage as it gives a firming effect to the skin and blends well with other oils. It stays on the skin long enough to perform the massage yet absorbs deeply into the skin without leaving a residue.
Skincare: Can be used on its own as an all over body oil to deeply moisturise the skin. It can also be used as a natural cleanser and a gentle make-up remover.
Massage: Use as a base for massage or blend with your favourite essential oils for added benefits.
Haircare: Helps hydrate and condition your hair, helping to improve strength and shine. Try an intensive hair mask by combining Grapeseed with Avocado Oil (#231) and massaging a few drops into your hair and scalp. Cover with a warm towel and leave for at least 20 minutes. Shampoo as normal. Top tip – Begin to lather your shampoo before you wet it to help emulsify the oil, helping it to rinse out easier. Try to leave your hair dry naturally after a treatment to limit breakages.
Homemade: This oil can also be used to make your own skincare products like creams, lotions, balms serums and soaps. Used as a carrier oil it can be combined with essential oils for aromatherapy.

All vegetable oils and fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon).
Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil.
Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
