Grape seed oil is very rich in omega-6 linoleic acid (almost 70 percent), which determines the cosmetic properties of this product. Mono-unsaturated omega-9 and palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, omega-3 and arachic acid are also present in the oil in small amounts. High antioxidant activity is largely determined by vitamins E, C and A, flavonoids, proanthocyanidin and resveratrol. Due to the presence of these components, grape seed oil is twenty times more effective than Vitamin C in the fight against free radicals that are dangerous to the body. Grape oil is different from most other high content of such a vitamin as E (a tablespoon is enough to meet the daily needs of the body). The antioxidant contained resveratrol, which has a pronounced anti-thrombotic, anti-inflammatory, antitumor and anti-sclerotic effect, is similar in biological function and structure to estradiol, a female hormone. Resveratrol strengthens the walls of blood vessels and capillaries, helps to normalize the balance of hormones, improves microcirculation of the lymph and blood, improves liver function, prevents obesity, reduces the risk of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's, regulates the function of the sebaceous glands, and also stimulates collagen production. The oil is also rich in chlorophyll (it causes a green hue). Chlorophyll, which has a bactericidal property, has a tonic effect, activates the healing process of skin and mucous tissues, prevents the formation of stones in the bladder and kidneys, prevents the occurrence of atherosclerosis, improves the functioning of the respiratory organs, digestive and endocrine systems.
