Grape seed oil is a polyunsaturated oil rich in linoleic acid. It is obtained from the seeds of the grapes which contain around 12% of a drying oil which has excellent spreadability on the skin and penetrates quickly, leaving no oily residue.
It contains the highest amounts of linoleic acid among any oil or food source. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid which means we must consume it in our diet as our bodies don't produce it. It is necessary for many functions that maintain normal cell growth throughout our body.
