Oil from grape seeds

The grape seed oil contained in our products is extracted from the fruit grown in our vineyard. Grape seeds are one of the by-products of winemaking. As we did not want to waste their beneficial properties, we decided to press them for oil. Depending on the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, vegetable oils can be divided into three categories: drying, semi-drying and non-drying. Grape seed oil contains large quantities of unsaturated fatty acids (e.g. linoleic acid, oleic acid) and saturated fatty acids (palmitic acid and stearic acid).

Grape seed oil is a drying oil. This group of oils is characterised by their lightweight texture; this means that the grape seed oil does not leave a greasy film on the skin. Therefore, it is ideal for oily and problematic skin. It is highly compatible with the natural sebum secreted by the skin and is not comedogenic.

Grape seed oil has primarily anti-ageing and nourishing properties. It contains linoleic acid, resveratrol, flavonoids and vitamin E that produce an anti-oxidant effect. Flavonoids are one of the most powerful antioxidants; they help neutralise free radicals and regenerate the deeper layers of the skin.

Grape seed oil is also a rich source of vitamin E – “the vitamin of youth”, which is a natural antioxidant. It helps eliminate free radicals and naturally inhibits the ageing processes. Therefore, it is the perfect ingredient for mature skin.
Grape seed oil contains vitamins A, E, K and D, which reinforce the skin’s lipid barrier and facilitate its regeneration. They strengthen blood vessels, make them more flexible and prevent them from breaking and transforming into spider veins.

Grape seed oil is completely absorbed by the skin and does not leave a greasy film. It soothes, calms and regenerates the epidermis. It alleviates inflammation and irritation. Since its composition resembles the lipid structure, it reinforces the skin’s natural protective barrier. Research has shown that it helps minimise the appearance of scars and combat acne.
Cosmetic products containing grape seed oil improve the skin’s firmness and elasticity and prevent the formation of comedones. It leaves the skin feeling moisturised, pleasantly soft and smooth to the touch, deeply hydrates, neutralises dark circles under the eyes, exhibits anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and removes toxins.
