Wheatgerm Oil

Wheatgerm oil is extracted from the nutrient rich germ which is a by–product of the flour milling process. The germ contains around 10% oil which, in its crude form, is dark amber in appearance with a wholesome nutty odour.

Suitability

The oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E and other Tocopherols which, when combined with its high content of Omega 6 Essential Fatty acids, makes it an ideal product for dietary nutrition.

The oil has excellent emollience and skin feel with a relatively low odour.

It is best to use wheatgerm in a blend with another oil at around 10%. The high Vitamin E content will also act as a natural preservative in any blend you create.
