I really love grape seed oil, its so light and penetrates quickly and smells just FRESH and CLEAN - not like chicken fat. im sorry, but I couldnt stand emu anymore - made everything smell funny, since I also use it on my neck and decollete/chest Laughing

Grape seed oil is a very nice oil; I like how quickly it absorbs into the skin. I'm glad that you found an alternative for emu oil. Very Happy

I just bought grape seed oil from Trader Joe's but I was going to use it for cooking. Can I use it on my face, too?

To get any benefits from it, it should be cold-pressed. If it is, yes, you can use it. Smile

I hope it's cold pressed. I'm pretty sure I saw something like that on the label. Woohoo!

Even if an oil is cold pressed keep in mind that edible oils are different than skin care oils as they are usually much more refined and therefore, won't have the same effects. If you really want a great oil to use on your face and body, make sure to get oils specifically for skin care.

I have been hearing raves about grapeseed oil but specifically chardonnay grapeseed oil over at Garden of Wisdom. Currently, I have too many oils but will definitely check this out later.

Remind us Monica what skin type are you? Fresh and light sounds lovely and I think the grapeseed extract in the Berry Ben is giving me a bit of a boost so I might give it a whirl.

Are they comparable oils, grapeseed and emu?
In terms of the benfits that they offer?

My skin is a little on the dry and sensitive side.

It's not really recommended for oily skin. Jojoba oil would be better for oily skin types.

[i] Smile Hi everybody - just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in - grapeseed is a fabulous antioxidant and protects all areas of the cell. It is a terrific external and internal product - infact if you take grapeseed internally, you will notice a change in your skin, hair and nails. You may see popular ads for ECGC and grapeseed contains high levels. This compound does cross the blood brain barrier and interesting research is being done on brain function and free radical damage from strokes and ECGC. Great choice!

Thank you for sharing that Amy! I don't use grapeseed oil on my skin, but I do take the extract as a supplement -- looks like I picked a good one! Very Happy

I checked, and there's no "cold-pressed" anywhere on the label. Sad

Amy is there a shelf life on grapeseed oil. I just bought a gallon and noticed when I got home it said it expired 8/06? Talk about surprise. Before I return it wonder if it's okay.

There is definitely a shelf life on "ALL" oils and products. In my experience Grapeseed oil is one that tends to go rancid fairly quickly. If the oil has already expired I would definitely take it back. Not only does rancid oil not give you the benefits your want, but it can also be bad for your skin. Unless you are using it daily as a therapist on many clients, a gallon of oil is a HUGE amount for individual use. You may want to get a smaller bottle next time so you'll be able to use it all up by the expiry date.
