Description – An excellent, economical, all-purpose oil that is a good alternative to sweet almond for those with allergies or sensitivities. The majority of grapeseed on the market is chemically extracted and can be very variable in quality, so do be careful when choosing you oil. Our organic grapeseed is mechanically cold pressed for a superior oil with no risk of chemical residues. The seeds are a by-product of wine making which helps make the oil so economical. Not widely used in CP soap making as the saponification level is very variable
