Frequently Asked Questions
Is Wheat Germ oil gluten free?
  • Wheat Germ oil is gluten free. For those with gluten sensitivities and allergies, Wheat Germ oil is safe for topical use and consumption. It has a nutty flavor and is used as an ingredient in cooking often. However, for those with sensitive skin or with skin that is easily irritated, it is recommended to perform a skin patch test of Wheat Germ oil on the inner arm for 24 hours before using over a larger portion of the body. If redness, itchiness or irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Where to buy Wheat Germ oil?
  • Edens Garden has an excellent Wheat Germ oil that is unrefined and cold pressed from the wheat kernel and loaded with antioxidant activity. It has a light yellow color and is extracted from wheat germ and made by the cold pressed extraction method. It can be used in skincare and body care products as well as blended with essential oils for spot treatments to reduce inflammation, dry skin and redness. It can also be used on the scalp to improve hair thickness and hair growth.
Can I use Wheat Germ oil on my face?
  • Wheat Germ oil is regenerative for mature and dry skin as an enriching emollient by sealing moisture into the skin. It has an orange hue and as a more viscous oil, does not readily absorb into the skin. Because of this, we recommend blending it into other carrier oils that have a thinner consistency. You can blend the carrier oils with any floral essential oil for the face such as Rose or Lavender. Try using it blended into a massage oil and rub it in at night. Once absorbed, it will work its magic and leave your face feeling superbly nourished.
Can Wheat Germ oil be taken orally?
  • Wheat Germ is often taken orally and added to smoothies, cereals and other food items. It is especially rich in Vitamin E and also contains Vitamin B (potassium) to regulate blood pressure, as well as triglycerides beneficial for the heart. Its other nutrients including folate, magnesium and zinc can support the immune system, improve hair growth, and bolster healthy skin as well as overall metabolic function. If you decide to use it added into foods, the general recommendation is to ingest a tablespoon per day.
Does Wheat Germ oil clog pores?
  • A comedogenic ingredient is a substance that has a high likelihood of clogging pores which can lead to acne, blemishes and blackheads. The comedogenic rating of Wheat Germ oil is 5 out of 5 (5 being the most severe clogging). Conclusively, this means that Wheat Germ oil will clog most people's pores due to the fact that it is thick and viscous. It is an ingredient recommended solely for spot treatments of very dry and damaged skin. For those whose skin is easily irritated due to sensitive skin or oily skin, it is recommended to patch test Wheat Germ oil on the inner arm for 24 hours before using over a larger portion of the body. If redness, itchiness or irritation occurs, discontinue use.
