Wheatgerm Oil is a nutritiously packed vegetable oil that is believed to have many health benefits. It contains in particular oleic and linoleic acids which are soothing for the skin.
Wheatgerm oil is derived from wheat germ, which is considered the "heart" of wheat since it's found at the center of the wheat berry. It feeds the wheat plant with nutrients to help it germinate and grow. Wheat germ is the most nutritious component of the wheat kernel and contains 23 different nutrients, including protein, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium. The oil is also nutrient-packed, which makes it particularly well-suited to moisturizing and soothing your skin.

When applied to your skin, wheat-germ oil delivers a healthy infusion of vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids. These nutrients therefore, will help moisturise and heal dry or cracked skin.
