It has a high level of linoleic acid which makes grapeseed oil a great way to protect the skin by forming a protective barrier and also acts as an anti inflammatory. Linoleic accid treats both dryness and acne, making it an oil suitable for all skin types. Linoleic acid is beleieved to also help metabolism at the cellular level, which helps prevent aging skin.
It is also used as a treatment against varicose veins and stretch marks. It is believed that using grapeseed oil is effective because the oil contains vitamins C, E, and D, along with beta carotene from vitamin A. Along with these effective vitamins, grapeseed oil also contains of palmatic, and stearic acids, which occur in skin naturally and decrease with age.
Vitamin E works as an anti-oxidant and fights free radicals that damage our skin. Vitamin D is another ingredient that may stimulate collagen production and reduce the chances of acne.
Vitamin C is another important property that makes using grapeseed oil for skin care so effective. Vitamin C is a well known antioxidant that helps repair cell damage, and may even stimulate the body’s production of collagen which is partly responsible for skin elasticity.
