Why Emu Oil Works

The Beneficial Components of Emu Oil

Emu Oil has so many uses! Why is it such a potent moisturizer? Where does it get its ability to help accelerate healing? Why does it help to lower cholesterol? In this article we are going to explore why by looking at some of the components that make up pure Emu Oil.

Below is a list of Emu Oil components that have proven to be beneficial to our health.

Linoleic Acid

A polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid which is a known anti-inflammatory and helps with skin hydration when applied topically. The anti-inflammatory properties of this essential fatty acid provides Emu Oil with the ability to ease joint pain, muscle aches and pain relief for acne. Linoleic Acid also helps Emu Oil to dry more quickly.

Oleic Acid

This monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid is often used as an emollient (moisturizer); making skin softer and more supple. A recognized benefit of consuming monounsaturated fats is the reduction of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A plays a role in a variety of body functions including vision, the immune system, skin cell health and antioxidant activity.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps make Emu Oil a healing agent.


Sapogens are proven skin softeners.

Emu Oil also contains 21 amino acids, and omega-3 and omega-7 fatty acids. All of these components help to make Emu Oil a deep penetrating, non-comedogenic moisturizer with fast healing, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This complete package makes Emu Oil an exceptional natural alternative to many conventional therapeutic and cosmetic treatments.




Male Pattern Baldness

Emu Oil for Hair Loss?

Could Emu Oil be used to Stimulate Hair Growth?

Male Pattern BaldnessMan-kind has long been struggling to find ways to conceal, stop, slow-down, and reverse balding and the thinning of hair on the head. The most common form of hair loss is male/female pattern balding. Male pattern baldness can begin when a man is in his 30s and can take the form of a receding hairline on the forehead, a gradual thinning of the crown or both. Female pattern baldness typically consists of thinning of the hair on the front 2/3s of the head and doesn’t usually begin until a woman is in her 50s or 60s. Many men embrace their balding while others have tried toupees, wigs and different forms of treatment to bring back that full head of hair from their youth.

Various treatments have become available over the years and many with mixed reviews. Could Emu Oil’s remarkable ability to penetrate the skin, moisturize, reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing of cells make it a viable treatment to stimulate hair growth? Could Emu Oil be used to reduce baldness, thicken hair or accelerate hair growth? We found some articles that suggest that Emu Oil could do just that! The evidence for these articles seems to come from a study and patent filed by a Dr. Michael Holick, MD, Ph.D. Links to these articles have been provided below.
