INCI name: Triticum durum
Description: Wheat is a cereal plant, cultivated extensively all over the world. The oil is derived from the germ. Our Wheatgerm oil is unrefined and is very high in vitamin E, making it a natural anti-oxidant. It is also a good source of essential fatty acids; in particular, Linoleic acid. Wheatgerm oil has a heavy texture and a distinct odour.
History / benefits: Wheatgerm promotes the formation of skin cells and improves blood circulation. It is a “true carrier oil” in that it is transdermal and will carry essential oils that are blended with it, making it a prime ingredient in muscular or skeletal pathologies as well as skin issues that are formed in the dermis. In skin care, wheatgerm oil is beneficial for mature or damaged skin.
