The nutritious content of wheat is well known to the world. Experts believe that the content is mostly enclosed in the germ of the grain. Wheat germ carrier oil is extracted from wheat grain which consists of three parts – the husk, germ, and endosperm. It is the richest source of Vitamins (A, B, D, E); Proteins and Minerals. It smells heavy and dark in colour. Vitamin E as we know is a natural antioxidant and used as a preservative to increase the shelf life of the carrier oil, naturally. It has a medium absorption rate and does leave a slightly oily feel on the skin. Along with nutritious benefits, it’s a great ingredient for beauty.
