Description

Organic Wheatgerm Oil

Organic Wheatgerm Oil is well known for its healing potential when it comes to skin health. Millions of expectant mothers have routinely massaged Organic Wheatgerm Oil into their bumps to prevent the occurrence of stretch marks and to help retain skin integrity.

Fewer people are aware of its other protective capabilities, however.

Organic Wheatgerm Oil For Skincare

Organic Wheatgerm Oil is tremendously high in vitamin E content, which not only confers many benefits to our skin, but actually protects the oil itself from oxidization.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which may reduce UV damage.

Vitamin E Oil is regularly used in skincare formulations to extend shelf life and improve the antioxidant profile of skincare preparations. It does this by minimising damage.

Organic Wheatgerm Oil also contains very moisturising essential fatty acids, as well as lecithin and protein. Consequently, Organic Wheatgerm Oil is excellent for nourishing and protecting damaged, dry and mature skin.

The antioxidants in Organic Wheatgerm Oil may also help to reduce skin inflammation, dark spots, and scars, including the aforementioned stretch marks.

Organic Wheatgerm Oil Is Comedogenic

A word of warning for those who wish to use Organic Wheatgerm Oil daily on their face… DON’T!

Organic Wheatgerm Oil absorbs beautifully into our bodily skin, but the finer skin on our faces tends to struggle with the comedogenic nature of this oil. Simply put, this means that Organic Wheatgerm Oil, when used too often on our delicate facial skin, has the potential to clog pores, which can lead to breakouts and blackheads etc.

Traditional uses include:

Directions For Use

Place a small amount of Organic Wheatgerm Oil in the palm of your hand and then rub your hands together.

Once the oil is warm and fully covering the palms and fingers, gently massage the oil into your skin in slow circular motions.

Avoid regular use on facial skin, especially if you suffer from breakouts and oily skin.

Contraindications

If you have sensitive skin, or if you do a lot of sun bathing, there’s a very remote chance you may have a slight reaction to this Wild As The Wind oil.

It is always advisable to perform a patch test on the soft skin on the inside of your forearm before using carrier oils on your face.

Perform A Patch Test

Place a drop or two of Wild As The Wind oil on your inner forearm, making sure to massage it well into your skin.

A severe reaction will occur within ten minutes, but it may take 24 hours for milder intolerances to emerge.

Look for signs of Urticaria, (aka Hives), discolouration, redness, dryness, or feelings of irritation / itchiness.

If you experience none of these, you will be safe to use your Wild As The Wind oil elsewhere on your body, including your face.

Nevertheless, always avoid sensitive areas and inside your ears unless otherwise instructed by your health professional. This is especially important if you use your Wild As The Wind oil as a carrier oil for a number of Organic Essential Oils.

    This is a lovely carrier oil. I have recently started mixing blends into a roller to use on my 6 year old daughter. This oil is perfect for that, lovely and nourishing for her delicate skin. Highly recommend and I will be buying again.
