Grapeseed Oil

Posted on


INCI name: Vinis Vitifera

Grapeseed oil is bright green, and, as its name suggests, is extracted from grapes. It is is high in linoleic acid, and has a small amount of Vitamin E. This oil has a long shelf life.

It is used mainly in massage oils as it is tolerated well by most skin types. Use 85% as a massage oil base. Care should be taken when using it in this way, as it can discolour sheets and towels. In liquid soapmaking, it makes a pale green soap, ideal for 'green' fragrances such as cucumber.

Grapeseed is inexpensive and available in supermarkets and grocery stores.
