Grape Seed Oil: The Natural Dirt Assassin!
Pressed from the seeds of grapes, this oil can be found in quite an abundant quantity due in part, to it being a by-product of winemaking. High in Omega-6 fatty acids- Linoleic acid [almost 70%!] and Omega-3 fatty acids- Oleic acid [around %16] and low in saturated fats, this oil is an excellent natural moisturizer & cleanser for the skin. It won't strip the skin of its natural oils, but it will gently remove dirt, oil, and excess sebum :) Since it also contains Vitamin E, the skin's overall health and hydration barrier are improved as well! High in antioxidants, grape seed oil is a great natural alternative that deserves a second look! Want to give this awesome natural ingredient a try on your skin to see what it can do?

Grape Seed Cleansing Oil
I absolutely LOVE this easy-to-use, powerful, natural cleansing oil from Michael Todd. Being a fan of Michael Todd, I admit to being partial to the brand but I do think this might be one of their best products I've given a try thus far! :0 It works well for any skin type- even those with super sensitive or acne-prone skin, like myself! Contains NO Parabens, Sulfates, artificial dyes, synthetic fragrance, Phthalates, water or cheap filler, triclosan, or mineral oil its truly formulated with care :)
This fantastic cleansing oil blend does contain a 67% pure Grape seed oil content, Sunflower oil, Rosemary leaf extract, organic Orange & Lemongrass oils that have high concentrations of Vitamins A,C, D, E, & Beta Carotene. That means that the powerful blend provides essential fatty acids & antioxidants that soothe, hydrate, and balance skin health- without stripping it of its natural oils or leaving a greasy, yucky residue! Simply take 2-3 pumps into your palm and then rub with gentle circular motions into your entire dry, non-cleansed face; then remove with a dry or lukewarm damp washcloth/towel and pat dry.
