Common Uses of Wheatgerm Carrier Oil

Wheatgerm oil is great for all skin types because it helps nourish and protect without causing irritation or breakouts. Its hydrating properties make it perfect for dry or mature skin that needs an extra boost of moisture. It also helps reduce inflammation, making it great for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin who need to soothe irritated areas without clogging pores.

Additionally, its antioxidant content helps strengthen your skin’s defenses against environmental pollutants that can cause premature aging over time. The high levels of Vitamin E can help stop any aromatherapy oil blends from going rancid.
Moreover, wheatgerm oil contains vitamin A which helps reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging by stimulating collagen production in the skin. Plus, its antioxidant content helps fight free radicals that contribute to wrinkles and dullness in the complexion over time.

All these qualities combined make wheatgerm oil an excellent choice if you’re looking to give your skincare routine an extra boost of nutrition and protection.

Precautions when using Wheatgerm Carrier Oil

None recorded and as with all carrier oils (except St Johns Wort), safe to use during pregnancy. As with all nut based carrier oils, always use with caution on people with nut allergies.
