Read more below to find out about this great oil: what it is, how it’s grown, and how it comes to you!
Grapes are a highly nutritious fruit with culinary usage stretching back to ancient humanity. But there’s more to grapes than grape juice and wine: their seeds are an excellent source of antioxidants and also contain linoleic acid.
When applied topically, the oil from grapeseed is an excellent source of Vitamins A, C, and E. This can help revitalize the skin, reduce signs of aging, prevent acne breakouts, and even improve the health of your hair!
Cultivation & Growth
The seeds for this oil come from the same species of grapes used to make wine, and EIR sources them directly from over 200 wineries located throughout Spain. The wineries first cultivate the grapevines themselves, using traditional methods. Because the grapes go into wine, they are usually grown without the use of pesticides so that they can preserve the natural yeast which allows grapes to ferment. This is great news for anyone getting Grapeseed Oil, too, because it means they’re not adulterated with any pesticides.
The Spanish countryside is ideal for growing grapes, due to the high-quality soil, topography, and the excellent climate. After the wineries crush the grapes to make wine, the pomace (leftover grape residue following juicing) is then transported to the oil processing facility.
Harvesting & Processing
After the grape pomace has been collected at the processing facility, it goes through a number of steps before they end up with the oil. First, all impurities like stems, leaves, and miscellaneous debris must be removed. Once done, the seeds go through a cold press to extract the oils. Don’t worry about the material they removed: these go into products like natural fertilizer. Nothing goes to waste!
In this process, the pomace is placed under high pressure. This extracts the oils without the addition of heat or chemicals. This leaves it with the majority of its natural antioxidants and fatty acids intact. After this, it must be further refined before it’s bottled and shipped to our warehouse in Wisconsin.
In conclusion, Grapeseed Oil from EIR Oils is a versatile product with many benefits for your health and beauty. Its light texture and natural antioxidant properties make it a great choice for use in cosmetics, skincare, and hair care products.
