Lately I've been seeing Grapeseed and Almond oils in my grocery store, I've read they are great ingredients in skin care products. Would the grocery store stuff, with a label that says it's %100, be ok to use on the face and body? I've been using grocery store olive oil for a while now with no problems and it seems that buying the oils this way is MUCH cheaper!

Yes, it's O K! The cosmetics companies simply blend a concoction, with ADDITITIVES, slap on their label and sell the blend to you. By purchasing this way, you know that you have the pure item and it's much cheaper!:clap :clap

I think that it is a great idea. The grocery store has so many finds such as oils, baking soda and ACV(apple cider vinegar) at a reasonable price!

Somewhere on the net I read that castor oil should be cold-pressed, ie processed without high heat, which destroys some properties that could be the beneficial ones you're looking for. It also mentioned that cold-pressed (for castor oil) is only available in Health Food stores. For EVOO, they do sell the cold-pressed type in a regular grocery store. I'm not sure about any of the other oils though. Hopefully others here can shed light on specifics. Kathy

I too have also heard about the cold pressed. I use evoo to take off my sunscreen before I cleanse and I always make sure it says cold pressed on the label. I get my evoo at the supermarket.

Yup...I would vote yes if they are no additives in them.

Well, I have the cold pressed xtra virgin olive oil, I've been using that as both a makeup remover and a mask for a while and love it. I have heard grapeseed oil is full of antioxidants, the bottle at the grocery says %100 but it doesn't say cold-pressed anywhere on it. Almond oil is about $6.00 for a 13oz bottle- I've paid twice that for the same amount at a health food store for one that says it's for skin and hair care. I guess I'll just buy the grapeseed oil- it can't hurt me. also, I remember also reading about Walnut oil for the skin- any one else heard of that one?

Non of mine say cold pressed but that doesn't necessarily mean they weren't. I use them anyway with the same benefits.
