Grapeseed Oil

(Vitis vinifera)

Archeology has proven that the vine originated as much as 130 million years ago, while the oldest fermented beverage from it dates from around 7000 BC and is from China. Wine was made around 6000 BC in the Caucasus, and clusters and jugs of wine are also present on hieroglyphs in Egyptian tombs dating back to 5000 BC.

In the process of making wine, an average of 7-8 liters of wine is obtained per 10 kilograms of fruit. What is left is by no means to be thrown away. It can be used to make brandy, it can be used to make compost to enrich the soil, or as fodder, food coloring (using the skin of the fruit), wine vinegar, but the most valuable in those leftovers are the seeds from which oil is obtained by squeezing. Grapeseed oil is very rich in antioxidants – polyphenols and flavonoids that neutralize the action of free radicals, which are the biggest culprits for skin aging. Vitamins, especially vitamin E, as well as essential fatty acids, rejuvenate the skin, stimulate collagen production and prevent wrinkles. It is also ideal for foot care: it will not only soften the skin and prevent it from cracking, but it will also help to neutralize the small capillaries that often appear between the heel and the ankle.
