Wheat germ oil is a true luxury for natural cosmetics and handmade soaps. This vegetable oil, obtained from the germ of the wheat seed, is rich in a variety of beneficial nutrients for the human body. Among them are vitamin E, minerals, carbohydrates and easily assimilated proteins.

In addition, it contains small amounts of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which are essential for the health of the body. But what makes wheat germ oil so special is its antioxidant properties, thanks to the vitamin E it contains. This vitamin protects the body from free radicals, which can cause premature aging.

Our wheat germ oil is a refined vegetable oil that is extracted from the germ of the wheat seed, which only represents 2-3% of the weight of the seed. It is a natural source of vitamin E and high levels of unsaponifiable fraction, making it a powerful natural antioxidant.

Its composition in essential fatty acids favors cell regeneration and makes it an essential ingredient for skin health. In fact, it is especially rich in octacosanol, a long-chain saturated primary alcohol found in various vegetable waxes. This compound has been studied as an exercise and performance enhancing agent.

Wheat germ oil is considered the most important source of vitamin E, which is found in an amount between 300-450 mg/100 g. It also contains essential fatty acids, linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, provitamin A, vitamin F, and stearin. Its embryonic origin results in its high content of biologically active substances.

In cosmetics, wheat germ oil is a very popular ingredient due to its moisturizing properties and its ability to prevent the appearance of expression lines. It can be used to remove make-up and as a base for the preparation of moisturizing creams and lotions for the skin.

In short, wheat germ oil is a real gem for health and beauty. Its beneficial nutrients for the body, its antioxidant power and its ability to improve skin health will make it an essential ingredient for anyone looking for a healthy life and a radiant appearance.
