Wheatgerm Oil Refined


Wheatgerm Oil, also known as Wheatgerm Carrier Oil, is obtained from the germ (or heart) of the wheat kernel. It is rich in linoleic and oleic acids, and contains a high percentage of natural Vitamin E. For this reason, it is incredibly beneficial for the skin and a preferred carrier oil for diluting essential oils.


• Due to its antioxidant and regenerative properties, Wheatgerm Oil makes an excellent ingredient for cosmetic products, and is especially beneficial for mature, damaged and pale skin with poor circulation.


• It is particularly useful for treating and soothing eczema, psoriasis and dry skin, and is further known to help prevent and heal scarring and maintain even skin tone.


• AWO's Wheatgerm Oil has been refined to create a lighter oil both in colour and odour, without affecting the essential fatty acid content. This makes it ideal for cosmetic, skin care and massage applications.


• It is also commonly used to produce hair care products, skin oils, powders, soaps and face masks.
