De La Cruz Grapeseed Oil is expeller-pressed from the tiny seeds of Grapes, often the same ones used to make wine. We’ll toast to that!
Grapeseed oil is a nourishing emollient high in linoleic acid and oleic essential fatty acids that help to build the skin’s natural oil barrier, for hydrated and supple skin.
It’s a thin and light oil that absorbs quickly into the skin, hair or scalp and makes a great base under makeup.
It’s a good choice for sensitive skin as it doesn’t clog pores. It is also ideal for moisturizing and conditioning dry hair as it won’t leave your hair greasy.

Grapeseed Oil is a light oil so won't weight your hair down. Apply the oil in your hair and leave it in for ten minutes, then rinse it out with cold water for an easy deep-conditioning treatment.
Absorbs nicely into the skin and also improves the delivery of essential oils such as Peppermint, Lavender, Tea Tree or Orange. Consult an essential oil guide for dilution ratios.
Vitis vinifera (Grapeseed) oil from Spain, Tocopherols (Natural Vitamin E).
We recommend you store the product at room temperature, with the cap tightly closed. Avoid direct sunlight and heat sources. These measures will help extend the quality of the oil.
Although we don't put an expiration date on most of our carrier oils, they typically remain usable for topical use for at least 2-3 years after bottling, unless stated otherwise. See our storage recommendations to maximize quality of the oil.
Carrier oils may become rancid gradually as time goes on. The time frame for rancidity can vary depending on the type of oil and storage conditions, especially temperature and light. Our Grapeseed oil contains a small amount of a preservative (natural vitamin E) to help retard oxidation. If the oil develops an unpleasant odor, discard and do not use.
The Grape seeds get crushed using a special hammer grinder. The crushed product is then conveyed to the expeller-press, a mechanical press that cause the crude oil to run. This method of extraction is a greener and more traditional way of making oil because it doesn't use any chemical additives (solvents), meaning no chemical residue.
Tocopherol is a small natural molecule and is the major form of vitamin E. We add a small amount of natural vitamin E to the oil just prior to bottling because it helps slow down oxidation and rancidity of the oil.
We do not recommend you heat carrier oils unless it's necessary for specific applications. The oxidation or rancidity of the carrier oil will speed up due to high temperature.
Although some of our carrier oils are food grade and fit for human consumption, they are intended for cosmetic use on skin, hair or nails. They therefore do not have nutrition facts on the labels and may not have an expiration date. We recommend you do not ingest the oils or cook with them.
When carrier oils remain open without the cap, oxidation will occur more quickly.
Yes. Although our oils are intended for cosmetic uses on skin, hair or nails, some of our oils are fit for human consumption and thus require a refining process to remove impurities such as free-fatty acids, gums, waxes and other metal ions. These impurities affect the quality of the oil.
Keep out of reach of children. For external use only. Do not use if plastic seal around cap is missing or broken.
