Grapeseed oil (Vitus Vinifera) is yielded from the seeds of "grapes" which is an ancient, sweet, and nutritious fruit. Generally speaking, the oil is the by-product of the winemaking industry and is often used for edible and topical applications. Winemakers press grapes, and the remaining seeds are separated for producing Grapeseed oil. Grapeseed oil is mainly produced in the winegrowing regions, especially in the areas around the Mediterranean Sea.
