Grape seed oil Grape seed oil (and olive oil) has a vast library of research behind it. The dominant component is linoleic acid which makes up a whopping 78%. There are also antioxidants in the form of polyphenols. The thing that has put grape seed oil in the anti-aging hall of fame is resveratrol, which is a phytoalexin, a defense mechanism produced by several plants (it is in peanut skins) to fend off attacking bacteria. There is documented proof of its cancer-fighting and anti-aging properties. The problem is that the proof has been entirely substantiated in a petri dish or on worms, fruit flies and small animals.
Olive oil Everyone knows that olive oil is good for you and is one of the main reasons for the low incidence of heart disease of people who live on a Mediterranean diet. The thing that makes olive oil such as powerful antioxidant is hydroxytyrosol (a stable form of polyphenol). Measured as ORAC, its antioxidant capacity is said to be 40,000 umolTE/g, twice as much as CoQ10 and ten times that of green tea. One of the most olive oil rich cosmetic lines that I have come across is Terralina. All the products in the line have olive oil in just about all its forms and are as about as organic as it gets.
Rosehip oil Rosehips have been laboring for years under the weight of misinformation. It was thought that they were a source of vitamin E and a form of retin A. This turned out to be a red herring and rosehip seed oil is in actual fact high in (fatty) linoleic and linolenic acids (in all about 77% fatty acids) as well as Vitamin C, all of which are essential for the health of the hair and skin. Flavonoids, a ketonic compound (namely 3-pentenpropyl-kentoe) and trans-rhodanic acids have been detected. My husband has been using pure rosehip oil as an aftershave lotion and he reports that razor burn is a thing of the past.
