UVA Skincare is an ingredient and quality first, family owned business, focused on bringing the healthy and powerful benefits of grapeseed oil to you. We have devoted over 25 years to studying and creating the highest quality cold pressed grapeseed oil. Our premium grapeseed oil is 100% grapeseed oil, unfiltered, and unrefined. All our grapes are hand-picked, then seeds separated and pressed in Napa Valley, California.
Grapeseed oil is also a zero waste product, coming from the left-over seeds, skins and stems of the wine industry. We finish the full life cycle of the grape with our upcycled products, not letting anything go to waste.
Why Grapeseed Oil
With proven benefits in anti aging, nourishing, refining, and healing skin, grapeseed oil is a hidden gem in the cosmetic industry. It detoxifies, protects, repairs, and rejuvenates holistically. Estheticians use grapeseed oil because it’s light and absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy feeling. Plus, it’s non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores.
Grapeseed Oil is Full of Vitamins, Antioxidants, and Essential Fatty Acids
Grapeseed oil is full of vitamin E. This vitamin works to build, protect, and correct. It assists in the production of collagen and improves skin tone. It helps to fight damage from free-radicals and prevent acne breakouts. Just make sure you’re using cold pressed grapeseed oil for vitamin E to be most potent. Harsh refining and solvent extraction processes can remove vitamin E from the grapeseed oil.
Grape seeds are abundant in Polyphenols and Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPCs) – the most powerful antioxidants found in nature! Polyphenols and OPCs complement the work of vitamins. They protect and detoxify skin from free radicals and clear clogged pores. OPCs repair collagen at a cellular level and stimulate circulation. They act as an anti-inflammatory and improve skin’s strength, firmness, and elasticity.
Essential Fatty Acids
Grapeseed oil is rich in linoleic acid, an omega-6 essential fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cells. They hydrate, moisturize, and soften skin. Linoleic acid protects, strengthens, and heals cell membranes. This correcting and nourishing effect minimizes the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars. It restores tired and aging skin to a natural glow. Linoleic acid also assists in the delivery of vitamins and antioxidants.
