Grapeseed cosmetic properties
Grapeseed are small seeds that we can find in grape berries (usually in every grape we find about 4 seeds), which are rich in oil and polyphenols, with an high antioxidant power, and for this reason they are very appreciated in the cooking and in cosmetics.
From a nutritional standpoint, the grape seed oil contains linoleic acid, which helps to decrease the levels of bad cholesterol from the blood, protecting the cardiovascular system.
In cosmetics it is used in antioxidant products for skin and hair as it fights skin ageing and the formation of free radicals. In particular, grapeseed extracts are ideal:
– to prevent wrinkles in mature skin;
– to firm and tone the skin and tissues, because they encourage cell cohesion;
– to moisturize dry skin;
– to fight the characteristic lucidity in the areas of the forehead, nose and chin of oily skin;
– to strengthen the hair fiber of fine and dry hair.
