Grapeseed oil is suitable for all skin types. Its virtual lack of aroma makes it an ideal base for essential oils. Extremely soothing and an excellent emollient, it is ideal for skins that do not absorb oils easily, as it is finer even than sweet almond, and therefore absorbs more quickly, leaving the skin feeling satiny soft. It does not aggravate acne and is purported to have regenerative and restructuring virtues due to its essential fatty acid content, which is important for skin and cell membranes. Its slightly astringent nature may also help tone the skin.
