Wheat germ oil (Trititum Vulgare) is obtained by cold-pressing the germ of this seed.
It is the vegetable oil with the highest Vitamin E content; in fact, this vitamin - also called tocopherol - was isolated in 1936 by Emerson and Emerson from wheat germ oil. The high content of vitamin E gives it a great cellular antioxidant and anti-free radical power, which helps prevent premature ageing. It also acts decisively on the life of cells, increasing the number of their divisions and thus fostering longevity.
Triticum vulgare is also very rich in Vitamin B6 or pyridoxine, which is essential for healthy skin because a lack of it causes disorders such as flaking, rashes or dryness.
It also contains significant amounts of Vitamins A, D and K, fatty acids, minerals, carbohydrates and easily-assimilated proteins. Its embryonic origin is the reason why it is high in biologically active substances.
It is a very nutritious oil, so it is very suitable for mature or damaged skin, and it is also particularly useful for regenerating damaged skin due to burns, wounds, acne, scars, etc.
