Wheat Germ Oil
- Botanical Name: Triticum Vulgare
- Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
- Plant Part: Wheat
Wheat Germ "Virgin" Oil is extracted from the germ of the wheat kernel. This ultra-rich, unrefined oil is a great ingredient. It is very rich in natural vitamins A, B, D, and E, proteins and lecithin. It is an anti-oxidant that can be added to other carrier oils in order to extend their shelf life naturally. This oil leaves an oily feeling on the skin, and should be used in dilution with other carrier oils for best results. Wheat germ may be cloudy in appearance due to the presence of natural sediments found in the oil. The oil is good to use but if desired, it can be subsequently filtered to remove any sediments. Users can expect a shelf life of 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight).
