Grapeseed oil has great benefits for hair growth and texture, as well as many skin benefits! We'll explain how you can make the most of grapeseed oil in your beauty routine.

A byproduct of the winemaking industry, grapeseed oil is extracted from grape seeds. The production of grapeseed oil is fairly sustainable, as there are no known negative impacts on the environment, and the use of the grape seed waste is a win-win for business owners and the environment alike. Just make sure to buy organic grapeseed oil so as not to contribute to the environmental degradation caused by synthetic fertilizers and pesticides in the wine-making process. 

Grapeseed oil is high in omega-chain fatty acids and vitamin E. It has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Due to its nutrient density, grapeseed oil has many benefits for hair and skin! You can use pure organic grapeseed oil, or opt for hair and skin products with grapeseed oil as the main ingredient.

Research shows that grapeseed oil may be able to stimulate hair growth in several ways. Grapeseed oil studies show that it may keep hair from thinning. The high levels of vitamin E in grapeseed oil may also protect hair from UV rays, and breakage, as well as maintain hair protein levels which keep the hair and scalp strong, preventing fall-out.

Grapeseed oil is hydrating for hair due to its high amount of the fatty acid linoleic acid. Linoleic acid can help moisturize hair, making hair soft and smooth. Still, grapeseed oil is lightweight and has little fragrance, so it does not weigh down hair or make it greasy. On the contrary, it adds shine! This is one of the most popular reasons some people prefer grapeseed oil over olive oil for hair

Grapeseed oil also has antioxidants which can even out skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation. Grapeseed oil is ideal for all different skin types as it may help those with oily skin due to its lightweight nature, and also naturally soothes dry skin

Grapeseed oil can be used in both acne prevention and in dealing with acne breakouts and scars. Because of cell regeneration and anti-inflammatory properties, grapeseed oil is perfect for blemishes such as blackheads, whiteheads and cysts. Grapeseed oil is also effective at reducing scarring due to its high amounts of vitamin E and linoleic acid. When used consistently, grape seed oil helps keep skin clear by evening out skin tone as well as balancing oil production.
