What is cold pressed oil?
Cold pressed refers to the manufacturing process used to extract the oil from the grape seed. At no stage during the pressing process:
- are the seeds heated (that can damage the natural goodness of the oil in the seed),
- are solvents like hexane(which may trigger cancer) used to extract the oil from the seed.
This result is an Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Grape Seed Oil.
What are the benefits of cold pressed oils?
Grape seed oil is high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. It is also high in anti-oxidants. The oil is excellent for cooking and has a burning point of between 260 and 290 degrees celcius. Grape Seed oil is high in Vitamin E and is therefore also widely used in the beauty and massage industries. Natural oils naturally absorb UV rays and are therefore also widely used in sunscreen lotions.
