Grapeseed oil, one of the cleansing oils in the Dermadeli Complete Meal Cleanser, is often used in the kitchen and touted for its healthful benefits. Rich in beta-carotene, vitamins D, C, E and the essestial fatty acids palmitic, stearic and linoleic, it is easy to see why it is not only a favorite of nutritionists, also of those in the cosmetic industry. This oil is light on the skin and easily absorbed – hence all the nutrients sink into the dermis. The fatty acids in grapeseed oil have been studied extensively in trials as an anti-wrinkle agent. They are also helpful in reducing scars. Next time you are cooking, reach for the grapeseed oil that (hopefully) is in your cupboard. Don’t be afraid to smooth it on your skin. Hey, it’s simply multi-tasking in the kitchen. 🙂

If I wanted to add a pure oil to my face would you suggest olive or grape seed? Also, does the oil clog the pores and cause break outs? I have heard mixed info on this?
Good question! Oil is an amazing thing. Although we instinctively think it will make the skin situation worse, done correctly, it will make it better! Whether you use olive or grape seed is up to you. They have the same skin improving qualities, although grape seed has more antioxidants. As for clogging your pores, the oil cleansing method for the face is widely accepted now. A combination of oils works best. My best suggestion is to use the Dermadeli’s Complete Meal Cleanser – it was formulated just for this purpose. It has a beautiful mixture of cleansing and nourishing oils as well as oatmeal for hydration and sugar as a gentle glycol. Give it a try!
