Properties and Benefits:
1. Skincare benefits
Wheat germ oil has amazing benefits for the skin and hair as it is rich in vitamin A, D as well as lecithin, minerals, protein, and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and F. Due to the high vitamin E content, the oil can be added to skincare formulations as a natural preservative to prolong the life of the end-product.
To help clean and moisturise your skin, add a teaspoon to your facial cleanser and/or moisturiser and apply direct to skin. Wheat germ oil can also be used as a massage oil. Mix 5% with other carrier oils and essential oils. Wheat germ oil is quite a thick oil so best to add with other carrier oils to get a nice feel on the skin.
2. Haircare benefits
In addition to skincare benefits, wheat germ oil has benefits for the hair as well. The oil promotes shiny, healthy-looking hair as it reduces frizzing and cuts down on static and split ends. It is known to produce wonderful results for frequently washed hair, chemically-treated hair or heat-styled hair.
- Scalp pre-treatment – massage a tablespoon of wheat germ oil into your scalp before shampooing to allow the emollient properties of the oil work its wonders.
- Deep-conditioning treatment – add some oil to conditioner, apply to your hair and let sit for about half an hour.
- Intense moisturising treatment – liberally apply wheat germ oil into your hair, cover with an old towel or shower cap and leave overnight. Wash off next day and condition as usual. If applied once a week, this treatment will help to produce healthy, soft manageable hair.
