Grape seed oil is very good to use as a natural skin care. It feeds and softens the skin, and it even can improve the skin. This oil is extracted from grape seeds and is a extra product of the wine making industry. It is dry oil, which means that is leaves no greasy residue on the skin, but is well absorbed by your skin. A nice benefit of grape seed oil is that it is relatively cheap; it can even be found in many supermarkets!

Grape seed oil is bright, light green in color and almost odorless. Because it is nearly odorless and a so-called dry oil, it is very suitable to be used as a versatile beauty product.
