The Ultimate Guide to Using Grapeseed Oil for Your Skin

The Ultimate Guide to Using Grapeseed Oil for Your Skin

In the world of skincare, there's always a fancy new ingredient or product making headlines for promising to revolutionize our beauty routines. However, it's often the lesser-known, natural ingredients that truly hold the key to healthier, radiant skin. One such hidden gem is grapeseed oil.

Derived from the tiny seeds of grapes, this powerhouse ingredient has been quietly making waves in the skincare community thanks to its unique properties and considerable benefits. From being packed with antioxidants to its ability to balance oil production, grapeseed oil offers a multitude of benefits that cater to all skin types.

But how do you use it? What should you look for when buying it? And how does it fit into your current skincare routine?

Whether you're a skincare newbie or a seasoned pro looking to elevate your beauty ritual, grapeseed oil might just be the missing piece in your skincare puzzle.


Cold-pressed organic grapeseed oil is touted as one of the best oils for skincare due to its numerous benefits. These range from hydrating the skin, reducing dryness, fighting acne, defending against sun damage, evening out skin tone, and supporting overall skin health. Grapeseed oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, antioxidants, and linoleic acid, all of which contribute to its skin-enhancing qualities.

Why is cold-pressed organic grapeseed oil particularly beneficial? The answer lies in how it's processed. Cold-pressed extraction method involves pressing the grape seeds without using heat, thereby preserving the oil's natural properties and nutrients. This method ensures that the oil retains its antioxidant-rich qualities, which can be diminished when heat is applied during extraction.

On the other hand, some grapeseed oils are extracted using hexane, a solvent that assists in the extraction process. However, hexane is a chemical that can leave residues in the oil, potentially causing harm to the skin and overall health. Therefore, cold-pressed organic grapeseed oil, which is free from such chemical residues, is considered better for your skin.

Organic cold-pressed grapeseed oil is an excellent ingredient for skincare products for several reasons:

Rich in Antioxidants: Grapeseed oil is full of antioxidants, including vitamin E and flavonoids, which help protect the skin from harmful free radicals and environmental stressors.

Moisturizing: It's high in omega-6 fatty acids, which are known for their moisturizing properties. This makes it excellent for hydrating the skin and locking in moisture.

Non-Comedogenic: Grapeseed oil has a low comedogenic rating, meaning it's less likely to clog pores compared to other oils. This makes it suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin.

Balancing: High in linoleic acid, grapeseed oil can help balance sebum (skin oil) production, which can be particularly beneficial for those with oily skin.

Absorbs Easily: Grapeseed oil is lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue, making it perfect for a cleanser or hydrator.

Impressive, isn’t it? These benefits apply specifically to cold-pressed and organic grapeseed oil. Cold-pressing ensures that the oil retains all its natural nutrients, as no heat is used during extraction. Being organic means it's free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

The cold-pressed organic grapeseed oil Core Ritual™ uses in our products offer superior benefits due to the NatureFRESH Cold Press™ process which results in ultra-pure oils that maintain the integrity of their optimal antioxidant and nutritional properties.


Mass produced grapeseed oils use high heat, strong chemicals, and harsh solvents in the extraction process, leading to low-quality oils with little to no benefits. When these same oils are cold pressed in small batches without the use of high heat, chemicals, or solvents, the oils result in more health and beauty benefits and much less waste.

Discovering the best means of extracting these oil lipids from seed fiber is what led to the development of the trademarked NatureFRESH Cold Press process used to produce our ingredients. This gentle, all-natural extraction method yields pure ultra-virgin seed oils that maintain the integrity of each seed’s individual benefits.

This means that when you incorporate Core Ritual's products like Cleanse™ and Hydrate™, which include cold-pressed organic grapeseed oil as a part of our Core Ritual Signature Oil Blend, you can rest assured that you're leveraging the full potential of its benefits, thereby optimizing its effectiveness.


Core Ritual’s Signature Oil Blend combines organic grapeseed oil, organic sunflower seed oil, cranberry seed oil, and broccoli seed oil to support healthy aging, restore damaged skin, and nurture all skin types. These ingredients are truly better together.

Organic grapeseed oil is high in vitamin E, which helps promote the reduction of visible UV damage, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. The high vitamin A and vitamin E content of organic sunflower seed oil helps to even skin tone and reveal a more youthful glow, while its excellent emollient properties nourish even the most sensitive skin. Cranberry seed oil fights inflammation, calms, and moisturizes skin making it an ideal ingredient for faces of all ages. Broccoli seed oil is intensely hydrating while helping to accelerate skin restoration and faster collagen deposition, leaving your skin brighter, smoother, and more supple.

In addition to being expertly formulated by doctors to maximize product efficacy, all of Core Ritual’s seeds are sustainably sourced, fully traceable, and third party tested for microbiological contaminants, heavy metals, water activity, and pesticides.

All while optimizing your skin’s own moisture barrier and helping to diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Hydrate is a lightweight face moisturizer that helps visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
