Grape Seed Oil
Sourced from Areni & Getap, Vayotz Dzor Region
Being the lightest of the carrier oils, grape seed oil is an excellent moisturizer for oily and combination skin types, that is able to both mattify the skin and fade breakouts.
Armenia’s Vayotz Dzor region is known for its vast vineyards. Since the grape seeds are not used in wine preparation, they are purchased from local winemakers. To extract the purest possible oil, the seeds are cold-pressed, a process that eschews heat and is capable of preserving the delicate phytonutrients present in the grape seed.
Grape seed oil’s light fatty acid profile makes it a perfect remedy for oily skin. For acne sufferers, grape seed oil has been shown to quickly eliminate all signs of blemishes and pimples, thanks to blemish clearing omega-6. It also keeps oily skin matte while still moisturizing it, because it is able to penetrate the skin quickly. A unique application of grape seed oil is in products for people with both acne and age related concerns, because it is rich in polyphenols and vitamins that can keep the skin smooth and wrinkle-free, without risking blemishes.
More Reasons to Love Grapes
In Armenia, a host of grape varieties fuels the country’s abundant and centuries-old wine and brandy tradition. In 2010, archaeologists discovered the remains of a wine production facility in a cave complex in Areni. The remains in the cave complex date back to about 4000 BC, making it the oldest excavated winery.
These days, wine is produced in Armenia both as part of a thriving industry, and on a smaller scale by families that have a few vines. While Vayotz Dzor is considered the center of wine production, important grape cultivation also occurs in Ararat and Tavush regions, while new wine culture develops in the Armavir region as well.
