Grape Seed Vitis vinifera


Grapes (Vitis vinifera) is a species of Vitis, native to the Meditereran region of central Europe, Southwestern Asia. Humans are known to have interacted with Vitis vinifera as far back as in the Neolithic period. For thousands of years, the fruit has been harvested for both its medicinal use and nutritional value. The flesh and skins of the grapes are eaten, processed to make wine or juice, or dried to make raisins. Grape seeds are crushed and processed to make grape seed oil.

Grape seed oil is gentile on the skin, absorbs easily, and provides incredible moisture. This oil is extremely rich in beta-carotene and vitamins D, C, E. In fact, it contains 20 times the antioxidant power of vitamin E and 50 times the antioxidant power of vitamin C. The high concentration of fatty acids has been proven to be effective at reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
