Grapeseed Oil is an all-natural product, high in linoleic acid, featuring plenty of antioxidants and vitamins E and D. Derived and pressed from various varieties of Vitis Vinifera grape seeds, Grapeseed Oil is a multifunctional ingredient and can be used in food, beauty and personal care formulations.
When it comes to skincare however, Grapeseed Oil is fast becoming a commercial favourite for brand owners due to its natural and sustainable qualities and as a nutrient-rich source of vitamins and fatty acids that can aid in skin rejuvenation.
In addition, Grapeseed Oil offers brand owners the opportunity to develop clean label products – in line with today’s discerning consumer looking for a natural product positioning.
It contains a high amount of omega chain fatty acids and vitamins E and D. In topical skincare, Grapeseed Oil is ideal for use as a carrier oil, and in the development of moisturisers, anti-ageing creams and serums, it offers a natural source of intense hydration that can aid in repairing damaged skin cells.
But its impact stretches broader than just skin rejuvenation. It is also a fantastic ingredient that can target specific skin conditions, including acne, eczema and sensitive skin. This is due to its stellar antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities that challenge bacteria by penetrating deep into the skin’s pores.
Grapeseed Oil has a high proanthocyanin content, which can be useful in sun care formulations as it protects the skin from absorbing damaging UV rays. When used in the development of hair care products, it offers powerful hydration and therapeutic benefits, and is a great choice for simple and effective range expansion.
Stable and versatile, Grapeseed Oil is a great all-round addition to skin and personal care formulations that require a natural ingredient positioning – benefiting both brand owners and consumers.
