BENEFITS OF PURE EMU OIL BY WILLOW SPRINGS
Emu oil has been valued for thousands of years by Australian Aborigines for its renowned healing, moisturizing and pain relieving powers. The Aborigines introduced Emu Oil to the first Europeans as a natural sunscreen and skin moisturizer. The use of Emu Oil was among many natural remedies adopted by settlers from the original inhabitants of Australia. Learn more about the benefits of emu oil and the benefits of emu oil on your face.
Emu oil is rendered and refined from a thick layer of emu fat found on the back of mature emu, which yields 6 – 7 litres of unsaturated, non-toxic, highly penetrating pure Emu oil. Modern research studies verify emu oil has unique beneficial and therapeutic properties.
Pure Emu oil contains:
- Linoleic acid, which may ease joint pain and muscle aches
- Oleic acid, an established anti-wrinkle agent, skin cell regenerator
- Vitamin E, a major antioxidant and healing agent
- Sapogens, proven skin softeners
- Vitamin A, an established skin repairer and antioxidant
Emu Oil provides gentle and effective daily skin care
Pure Emu oil helps restore, safeguard and maintain the appearance and feel of healthy skin – due to its naturally-occurring skin softeners and antioxidants, as well as its non-comedogenic (i.e. does not clog pores) and hypoallergenic qualities. It has shown to be the most rapid and penetrating oil into the skin, making it a superior carrier for any added therapeutic ingredients or moisturizers. Fast-absorbing and leaving no oily film, Emu oil continues to provide long-lasting benefits – even after repeated washings.
