#IngredientSpotliht – Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil

Certified organic and natural vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil has swelled with popularity in the vegan skincare and makeup world over the past few decades.

And it’s easy to see why, too! Pressed out from the seeds of grapes, a byproduct of winemaking, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil is a fully vegan, organic and natural, non-harmful chemical substance. It’s brimming with polyunsaturated fatty acids, a chemical with more natural beauty benefits with topical application on the skin, rather than consumption.

In this month’s #IngredientSpotliht, you’ll get to learn more about 3 of certified organic and natural grape seed oil’s great (pun intended!) skin-loving natural beauty benefits!

1. It naturally color corrects uneven skin tone!


Skin discoloration, sunspots and reddened acne scars are all signs of damage that has been inflicted on the skin, but they stand no chance against certified organic and natural vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil! Certified organic and natural grape seed oil contains a potent combination of vitamin E and linoleic acid ⁠— the latter being a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid ⁠— that work in tandem to naturally heal and brighten your skin Among other oils, a 2016 study confirmed this — noting that while the power pair can’t help to completely banish wounds and scars, they can indeed help to make them less noticeable over time!

2. It naturally offers protection against the harshest environmental elements!

On its own, organic and naturally derived Vitamin E in grapeseed oil is a potent performer deserving of the spotlight. It’s a fully vegan, organic and natural antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals produced from daily exposure to the elements, particularly UV rays, and pollution, fortifying the skin barrier and its natural Plus, this naturally hypoallergenic ingredient is also listed with an SPF rating of 4 to truly protect your skin from the inside out!

3. It naturally stimulates the skin on the scalp and hair growth!


Last, but not least, we haven’t forgotten about your skin on the scalp! Grape seed oil contains high levels of linoleic acid; hair loss and dry skin on the scalp have been attributed to a lack of linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is also the reason why grape seed oil is incredibly lightweight and able to cleanse and nourish your strands without weighing them down. A study from Princeton University supports this, concluding that plant oils, such as grape seed oil, worked as natural conditioning agents for the hair. Lightweight while supplying lots of much-needed moisture to our scalp? Yes, please!
