Grapeseed oil benefits on your skin

The grape is one of the oldest and most cultivated fruits. It was belatedly established in France, around 600 years before J.C., when the current Marseille was created. In France, grapes were exclusively cultivated to produce wine. It was not until the 16th century that other uses were attributed to it. It was Francois the first who brought the table grapes to Fontainebleau.

The use of organic grapes, a powerful natural antioxidant in cosmetology, dates back at least to the 17th century, to the court of Louis XIV, where it was fashionable to apply aged wine to the face to give the complexion a glow. Similarly, its lightening action was well known to French winegrowers. Nowadays, this small round grain covered with bloom is used in vinotherapy.

The consumption of grape seed oil is very recent and was first carried out chemically. It is still rare to find a grape seed oil obtained by cold pressing.

 It is the star component of beauty products: anti-wrinkle, moisturizing, revitalizing, softening, exfoliating, the qualities of organic grapes are numerous.

Wine therapy

You knew the benefits of a glass of wine a day, but we didn't suspect all the riches contained in a tiny organic grape seed.

His secret?

It contains polyphenols, these molecules, rich in vitamin E, which have the power to strengthen the natural protection of the epidermis and effectively fight against free radicals, 80% of which are responsible for aging

Physical and cosmetological properties

The organic grape, king fruit, is rich in directly assimilable sugars, as well as vitamins (C, A, B1, B2, B5, B6, B9, E, PP, P), mineral salts, acids and trace elements: phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, chlorine, silica, manganese, iron, iodine, zinc and copper. This richness makes it one of the best energy foods that nature has to offer.

The pulp that contains organic grape water is therefore very rich in trace elements. It is soothing and moisturizing.

Grapeseed oil benefits and properties

Seeds, rich in polyphenols, powerful antioxidants, lead the way ahead of vitamins to help fight against aging.

Polyphenols:

  1. promote the synthesis of collagen and elastin (to act on the firmness of the skin)
  2. stimulate microcirculation (for the beauty of the complexion)
  3. preserve the hydration of the epidermis (for comfort and radiance)
  4. Softening
  5. Exfoliating
  6. Refreshing
  7. Antiradical
  8. Antioxidant (which makes it an ally in the fight against aging)
  9. Regeneratin
  10. Nourishing, rich in OPC (which protects against the toxic effects of UV rays)

Grape seed is also recommended to treat problems of heavy aching legs and varicosities.

The organic grape juice extract used in cosmetology contains a significant amount of tannins, vitamins and fruit acids that give it gentle, lightening and protective exfoliating actions.

Vinolevure, extracted from wine yeast, is both soothing and healing, and strengthens the defences of our skin.

Finally, regardless of its nutritional qualities, organic grapes are now used by some french therapists for massages with organic grape oil.

Uval Cure

Uval cure (from the Latin UVA, grape) was extraordinarily popular in Switzerland, Germany and Italy during the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Between 1840 and 1935, it enjoyed its glory days. In Paris, Gare Saint-Lazare went so far as to be transformed into a uvale station, where every day, travellers and the curious consumed the juice of about five tons of grapes. The Academy of Medicine even granted him its blessing in 1933.

It was in Moissac, in the 1930s, that the first uvale spa was opened to people taking the waters who came to enjoy the benefits of the chasselas, in the same way as the spa treatments. The city was the only one with a "uvarium", where people came to consume organic grapes as a cure, to get back in shape and protect themselves from cardiovascular diseases.

Known for its fine skin and balanced sugar content, chasselas was one of the grape varieties recommended during the cure. Today, the benefits of uval cure are widely recognized. 1 to 2 kg of organic grapes daily for a few days and the body, cleansed and purified, finds a dazzling shape.

Those who have declared a real war on their cellulite can follow the uval cure in the fall: organic grapes and only organic grapes at every meal for 3 to 6 days to purify the skin, brighten the complexion and purify the body. This cure has a cleansing action on the skin, deep drainage of the kidneys and liver, intestinal relief, detoxification, purification and re-mineralization of the body.

A survey conducted in 1990 by the association Terre Vivante among 500 people revealed that organic grape cure appears to be a unique way to regenerate our organisms permanently attacked by stress and thousands of pollutants. "Super form", "Extraordinary energy", "Dynamism", "Euphoria", "Well-being", these words often come back in the pen of those who have recounted their impressions. 90% of the participants who complained of fatigue before the treatment, noticed an improvement in their condition, often striking.

Grapeseed oil benefits in a massage

I like to use it very much for massage on the whole body, because its texture is very light. As it is absorbed very quickly, it does not leave an oily residue on the skin. The amount of oil to use depends on your skin type to massage. You may need to use a larger amount if you are working on dry skin...

Thus grapeseed oil benefits are:

  1. moisturizes the skin
  2. helps to relieve tensions
  3. retightens skin
  4. makes the scars disappear

Grapeseed oil benefits in this case do not only apply to the skin, it can also be used for the treatment of your hair, for example. For the treatment of dry and/or damaged hair, the oil is very effective in making it softer and shinier.

If you too want radiant, soft-touch skin, in a word "peach skin", grape seed oil 100% natural and safe for your skin and your health is without a doubt the product you need.

Palace of the vines

Let yourself be tempted by this very original cure at Sources de Caudalie, a seasonal cure on the program only during the harvest period, from September to the end of October. A care drunkenness to make your head spin!

A Divine Journey through the Vines, Vinesime

Inspired by the ancestral Thai care "les tampons de Siam", this new draining and relaxing Vinesime care blends manual techniques completed by movements carried out with hot bundles of grape marc and grape seeds. A getaway in the heart of the French vineyards for a relaxation of body and mind. The treatment improves blood and lymphatic circulation, stimulates metabolism and provides unparalleled relaxation to relieve tension, muscle stiffness, aches and pains, and headaches, back and stomach pains. It is ideal for removing toxins, stimulating digestion, providing better sleep and boosting energy.

The bundles filled with vine marc and grape seeds are soaked in Sensual Voluptuous Vinesime oil and heated with steam. Applied to the skin by pressure, percussion, they roll over the body to untie tensions and diffuse the natural scents of the vine. Customers are immediately transported to the heart of an authentic getaway in Burgundy. The diffusion of heat allows intense relaxation and promotes the penetration of the anti-ageing active ingredients naturally contained in the grape.

The work begins on the back side with the legs and goes on to the back. This is followed by work on the front face on the legs, stomach, arms and neckline and ends with the face and scalp. The treatment ends with an awakening phase of the body.
