Our Wheatgerm Oil is cold pressed without the use of chemical solvents. Wheatgerm Oil is rich in Vitamins A & D, and naturally occurring antioxidants including Vitamin E and Beta Carotene.
Wheatgerm Oil can be used (sparingly) to prolong the shelf life of massage oils and will discourage oxidation. Wheatgerm Oil is very nourishing for the skin, prevents moisture loss, and like other wheat products helps to soothe red, irritated and sunburnt skin.
Wheatgerm Oil is golden-brown in colour and has a distinctive smell. Due to its level of Vitamin E, which is a natural Antioxidant, it has a fairly long shelf life. The oil itself is thickish, but blended with other oils, makes rich ingredient and is a good addition to facial creams, lotions and oil blends. It can taste and smell strong, so you need to balance this within your recipe if using in facial or lip products.
