Grapeseed Oil (Vitis Vinifera)
Produced from the seeds of grapes
This oil also contains vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E, that are good for both your hair and your nails. Naturally, by massaging the oil into your skin, you increase blood flow and help your skin to stay hydrated. Grape Seed Oil can also be used in place of olive oil for those who have allergies.
It has been shown that grape seed oil is effective in treating various skin conditions such as dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, warts, acne and more. Grape seed oil is a good source of essential fatty acids, and that is why it can be effective in relieving the symptoms of dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis. In fact, studies show that it is more effective than mineral oil and vegetable oils at relieving eczema symptoms. Grape seed oil’s anti-inflammatory properties also help reduce acne and other skin inflammations. It contains linoleic acid, which is a type of fatty acid that is readily absorbed by the skin. Grape seed oil will help your skin remain hydrated and improve the skin’s elasticity.
