What is Emu Oil?

handandbodylotion
The Aboriginal people of Australia have known about the healing properties of Emu oil for thousands of years. As they moved through the harsh desert environment, Emu oil was used to protect the skin from extreme dryness and to help heal burns and wounds.

It turns out that Emu oil is a natural source of anti-inflammatory agents and nutrients that have been proven to help skin heal and regenerate, like vitamins A and E, linoleic acid, and oleic acid. Emu oil has transdermal properties, meaning it is quickly absorbed through the skin to deliver these nutrients through the protective outer layers of the skin.

How is Emu oil made?

Adult Emus have a large pad of fat on their back that is harvested and refined to produce a variety of skin & body care products and cosmetics.. Our fully refined, Grade A Emu oil has been carefully refined (no harsh chemicals used), and filtered using ultra fine screens, to produce a stable, light to straw colored and nearly odorless oil. Lower quality Emu oils will be darker in color, have an odour, and may contain peroxides that will degrade the product over time.

What can it be used for?

Emu oil is useful for a huge variety of skin conditions, muscle soreness, and arthritis.

  • Hypoallergenic skin needs: For people with skin sensitivities, acne, or even those who simply want to avoid artificial chemicals, choosing skin care products can be complicated and frustrating. Emu oil is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and free of allergens, perfumes, preservatives, and other hidden chemicals often found in moisturizers and topical skin treatments.
  • A superior moisturizer: Unlike most vegetable or petroleum products, Emu oil doesn’t contain phospholipids, which bind products to the outer surface of the skin. Emu oil’s deeply penetrating properties promote more complete skin moisture.
  • Healing and anti-aging effects: Emu oil delivers a nourishing blend of vitamins and fatty acids deep into the skin to promote cell regeneration, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as scars, stretchmarks, and more. Emu oil helps wounds heal more quickly with less chance of scarring.
  • Naturally delivers soothing pain relief: Anti-inflammatory properties soothe sore muscles and joints, making Emu oil an ideal choice for massage, arthritis, and and sports medicine.
