What are the benefits and disantvages with grapeseed oil?

I know nothing about it, except that it is healthy to eat....

They sell it at the ethnic stores, so I am curious.

Right here, silly!
Unfortunately, it's not the best soaping oil to use because of it's high amount of linoleic acid, which makes it very susceptible to causing DOS. It makes for a great as a massage oil, though.

I too, like this light oil in lotions. IL is right though, soap made with too much of this oil is prone to DOS.
