Wheatgerm oil (Triticum vulgare)
A rich, orange-brown colour oil, invaluable to any blend. It is anti-oxidant and, therefore, prevents the oil from becoming rancid. An ideal preservative.
It contains protein, minerals, vitamins and is particularly renowned for its vitamin E content.
Its nourishing properties are useful to combat prematurely ageing skin, eczema and psoriasis. It also helps to prevent stretchmarks.
It is usually added up to 10 per cent in a blend.
