The Greatness of Grape Seed Oil
Cell proliferator. Hydrator. Collagen booster. Elasticity enhancer. Free radical fighter. This natural nourisher is loaded with beneficial fatty acids and flavonoids that make it a staunch ally for an overall healthier, smoother, more lustrous complexion. As a bonus, grape seed oil is non-comedogenic, pore-refining, and enhances dermal penetration making it an excellent carrier for delivering additional transformative ingredients into the skin.
For A Healthy Skin Barrier
Essential fatty acids are the building blocks for cell membranes. Grape seed oil is loaded with essential fatty acids including linoleic, which is a contributor to the formation of ceramides, essential elements in preventing transepidermal water loss. It’s one of the ingredients that make our Cleansing Milk perfect for supporting a nourished, healthy complexion.
For Lifting Fine LInes
High levels of the flavonoids oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) protect and replenish collagen and elastin by bonding with proteins and blocking elastase (the enzyme that breaks down protein). The vitamin C and A in grape seed oil are collagen stimulators as well. The high-performance formulation in Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream gets a lift from grape seed oil.
For Brightening Dark Circles
The thinner skin of the eye area gets a serious boost from brightening vitamin C, skin plumping vitamin A, vascular strengthening proanthocyanidins which increase circulation. It’s one of the key ingredients in our Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream.
For Reducing Acne Blemishes
Non-comedogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and mildly astringent, grape seed oil is a good choice for acne-prone skin. It helps clear and refine pores to keep impactions and pimples from forming. While it is an oil, it leaves no oily residue. Find it in our award-winning, acne-fighter Mandelic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser.
For Guarding Against UV Damage
Grape seed oil is rich in antioxidant vitamins C and E, both extremely potent defenders against the damaging effects of UV exposure. Additionally, vitamin C is naturally brightening and vitamin E aids in healing. Marine Skin Nourishing Cream combines grape seed oil with bioactive marine minerals and proteins in a richly reparative formula.
For Calming Redness
Anti-inflammatory properties, plus an ability to improve vascular health by triggering the release of endothelial growth factor makes grape seed oil perfect for sensitive skin and for keeping redness and rosacea soothed. Our Allantoin Sedating and Hydrating Lotion pairs grape seed oil with the comfrey-derived soother allantoin for ultra-calming moisture.
