Study || Grapeseed Oil and Removal of Sun-Induced Hyperpigmentation?
Nevertheless, I stumbled upon this interesting study (while researching grapeseed oil) that demonstrated lightening effects on UV-induced hyperpigmentation (i.e., a tan) after topical application of linoleic acid. Since grapeseed oil contains a large amount of linoleic acid, it makes you wonder if it would have that effect? Maybe you can do your own personal experiment or research.
