List of Grape varieties

This list of grape varieties includes cultivated grapes, For a complete list of all grape species, including those unimportant to agriculture

Rapeseed oil and coconut oil are used together in the creation of our soap base. The oils are heated with sodium hydroxide and water, which results in a process known as saponification.

Soap making developed gradually in history, it has remained largely based around the same process: boiling oils and fats with an alkali to produce soap and glycerine. Historically, the fats used were mostly beef or sheep tallow, with olive oil, palm and coconut joining the list later.

Mabrooka never used animal oils, of course, and in 2007, we felt that it was time for us to re-invent the vegetable soap base and make it palm oil-free. We worked with a leading UK soap-base manufacturer and developed a sunflower, rapeseed and coconut oil-base. We've now settled on a formula with just rapeseed and coconut oil, as we feel this gives our soap the properties we want.

The oils are heated with sodium hydroxide and water, which results in a process known as saponification. The soap can then be separated from the mixture using salt, and dried to give the solid base that is used in production.

Did you know?

that when it comes to grapeseed oil, quality matters? While both cold-pressed and expeller-pressed options exist, the cold-pressed version boasts superior quality. However, there's a trade-off! Because cold-pressed grapeseed oil is minimally processed, it has a shorter shelf life. To maximize freshness, buy it in small quantities and store it in a tightly sealed bottle in the fridge, away from heat and light. With proper storage, your cold-pressed grapeseed oil can last up to a year!

Where does Mabrooka source grape seed oil ?

For natural, organic mabrooka skincare, we source for grape seed oil is from a vendor that specializes in cold-pressed, organic grapeseed oil. Here's why:

  • Cold-pressed method: This method uses pressure to extract the oil from the seeds without heat. This preserves the natural nutrients and beneficial properties of the oil, making it ideal for skincare.
  • Organic certification: for oil that is certified organic. This ensures the grapes used weren't treated with pesticides or herbicides, minimizing the risk of irritation on your skin.
