Grape Seeds: A Truly Green Choice

We are often asked, "How did you ever decide to launch a skin care line centered around a single ingredient?"

The answer comes down to 3 basic principles that define truly GREEN choices:
recycling, health benefits and local resources

The Grapeseed Company's bath & body products feature the finest quality expeller-pressed grape seed oil, a natural byproduct of the wine making process. Grape seeds are normally thrown away by wine makers after they crush grapes to make wine. Our red grape seeds are recycled from the wineries, then pressed into an oil to create skin care products.

This ecologically sound oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and resveratrol. Grape seeds help fight free radical damage, the signs of aging, and heal skin exposed to natural elements. Grape seeds are rich in polyphenols, which have been linked to cancer prevention and anti-aging treatments in medical research. Applied topically, grape seed oil is known for its light, nutrient rich composition; an ideal choice for all skin types.

Santa Barbara, California is our home base, business, creative inspiration, love & life. Santa Barbara inspired The Grapeseed Co.'s innovative bath, body and skin care lines using resources grown in our own local wine region. By using locally based ingredients, we are saving on carbon emissions from transport, supporting local growers and producing a unique, earth friendly product to feed your skin.

Deeply rooted in eco-friendly choices, The Grapeseed Co. was founded on the desire to create natural bath, body and skin care using local resources. We make green choices in every aspect of business, from ingredient selection, to formulation, manufacturing and operations.
