My first introduction to the benefits of wheatgerm as a skin treatment were following a TV programme with David Bellamy (many years ago now!) telling audiences how he filled a sock with wheatgerm/oatmeal and hung it over the tap while running a bath for his son who suffered from eczema. Since then I have investigated the uses of this vitamin and mineral packed ingredient and often suggest it as the soap of choice for people with such skin conditions. One of the major components is vitamin E which, as a powerful antioxidant, helps to mop up free radicals which develop particularly following exposure to UV radiation.
This soap contains a man-made perfume to enhance the bathing experience but bespoke soaps can be made in bulk omitting the perfume if you are looking for something more functional. If you have gluten allergies this may not suit your skin type.
