The benefits of grape seed oil for your hair and skin

grape seed oil benefits

Good news!

Not only does the humble grape give us wonderful options for eating and drinking, it is also great for our skin and hair. 

Grape seed oil contains linoleic acid which is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that strengthens the cell membranes and improves overall quality of your skin. Linoleic acid is also beneficial for skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis and eczema as it can soothes and nourish the skin helping it repair.

The flavonoid oligomeric procyanidin found in grape seed oil is an incredible strong anti oxidant, about 20 times stronger than other anti oxidants like vitamin C and E. This compound can also provide protection against cellular and tissue damage caused by free radicals. 

Procyanidins also bond with collagen, the most abundant protein in the body and a key compound of skin, hair and body tissues. Grape seed oil contains high levels of vitamin E, which is a fat soluble antioxidant. It aids in preventing any cell membrane related injuries.              

Proanthocyanidins, very potent antioxidants are also present in grape seed oil and help in diminishing the sun's damaging effects.               

The report, published in the winter 2003 issue of Journal of Medicinal Food, states that grape seed extract can protect the body from sun damage. Grape seed oil is easily absorbed by the body, and it can be used for reducing age spots (yay), sun burn, wrinkles (another yay) and stretch marks. 
The oil is very light and feels fabulous used on and around your eyes as a moisturiser, it is ideal if you don't have any store bought personal care products that you usually use and need a quick fix.

Another one of the mighty grape's hidden health benefits is resveratrol, a compound primarily found in the skin and seeds. It's benefits include neuroprotective capabilities.  
Next time you toast to your good health, you might like to spare a thought for the wonderful grape seed and all the wonders it can offer your body. 

Cheers, to the wonders of grape seed oil!

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
