GRAPE SEED OIL is an ecologically sound product that is made from the seeds of grapes after the wine is pressed. There is no need for hybrid or genetically engineered crops, nor does it require new farmland, crops or water to produce. Grapeseed oil has positive effects on acne. Most people equate oils with increased acne, but in many cases, the opposite can happen. Grapeseed oil helps battle acne partially due to its content of polyphenols, which have anti-inflammatory properties, and partially due to the fact that grapeseed oil helps to clean out the pores. Grapeseed oil is rich in fatty acids, which are vital and nourishing to cells and is rich in linolenic acid, which apart from being essential to skin, is also a precursor to many other important chemicals like Gamma Linolenic Acid, or GLA, which further benefits the skin. GLA helps to produce hormone-like chemicals called prostaglandins, which help to regulate and maintain healthy skin.
