Grape seed oil is pressed from the seeds of grapes, and is thus an abundant by-product of winemaking. Grape seed oil is a preferred cosmetic ingredient for controlling moisture of the skin. Light and thin, grape seed oil leaves a glossy film over skin when used as a carrier oil for essential oils in aromatherapy. It contains more linoleic acid than many other carrier oils. Grape seed oil is also used as a lubricant for shaving and as a growth and strengthening treatment for hair.
