Grapeseed Oil is cold pressed from Vitis vinefera vines. Grapeseed Oil started out as a by-product of the wine industry and is considered to be a more 'green' approach due to the elimination of wasted materials, by using the seeds, for oil, rather than discarding them. With one of the highest levels of linoleic acid, and virutally no odor, or taste, it is popular for in cooking.
Grapeseed Oil is one of the most popular oils in massage therapy where it offers good slippage, and full absorption. Those very properties make it a great choice for oily skin types, or to balance the richer, slow to absorb, oils. The low price point will also help to offset the cost of valuable oils blends, where it reduces the greasy feel of heavier oils.
