Wheat germ oil bio
Wheat grows in Asia, America and Europe. He becomes 50-100cm high. It belongs to the sweet grass family (Poaceae). Wheat is one of the oldest cultivated plants in human history. Originally from Persia, wheat can now be found all over the world. Wheat germ oil is often blended with other oils, so it is advisable to pay attention to the appropriate quality and their certifications. Primavera organic wheat germ oil is made in Germany.
Wheat is rich in vitamin E and omega 6 fatty acids (about 85%).
therefore wheat germ oil is organic:
The oil protects the skin from free radicals and prevents skin damage.
Skin type: Suitable for all skin types. Particularly effective on mature and tired skin.
Application: Massage into damp skin after washing.
Virgin wheat germ oil is strong, orange-yellow in color and has a characteristic grain odor. Therefore, it is advisable to use it sparingly.
It is ideal for dry, barrier-disrupted and mature skin, because it increases the skin’s elasticity and has a slightly moisturizing effect, which is particularly valued for dry, rough skin. Wheat germ oil can give very pale skin with poor blood circulation a boost. We therefore recommend its use in face and body care products, especially in winter! Wheat germ oil penetrates the skin slowly and gives the skin a pleasant, moisturizing feeling, but without clogging the pores!
Hair care: The fatty acids, vitamins and minerals contained in wheat germ oil strengthen, protect and regenerate hair and scalp. For this reason, wheat germ oil is particularly suitable for the care of very dry hair and scalp. It wraps itself over the hair like a protective film and thus provides more body, shine and care. Wheat germ oil can regenerate the heavily stressed hair structure and visibly smooth it (especially with chemical applications such as perm, bleaching, frequent colorations, etc.), cover the hair like a protective film and the hair gets a smooth structure and immediately more shine (works like silicone, only without chemistry).
Incorporation into a hair treatment: A combination of wheat germ oil with jojoba oil, Shea butter and argan oil has a regenerating and balancing effect due to its high content of vitamin E and linoleic acid. Even when used neat, it has an extremely positive effect – a small blob distributed in the ends of the hair can work wonders, but be careful: use sparingly so that the hair does not become greasy and straggly!
