100% Pure Emu Oil - AEA Certified
When you apply Pure Emu Oil to your skin something will instantly tell you that this "just feels right".
Emu Oil is quickly absorbed because your skin recognizes a composition so similar to its own. Emu Oil will not clog your pores and is hypo-allergenic. As it penetrates deeply into underlying tissue it moisturizes and delivers bio-nutrients (vitamins, enzymes minerals, etc.) to support healthy new cell growth. Consider it a nutritional supplement for your skin.
What is Emu Oil?
Pure Emu Oil is the finished product from rendering and refining the fat of an Emu bird. In its concentrated form, it is an ultra-hydrating body oil, full of essential fatty acids, which promotes natural healing and rejuvenation of dry or damaged skin tissue. The benefits of Emu Oil are based on its high levels of antioxidants, collagen, elastins, and natural anti-inflammatory properties making it effective in relieving many skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne as well as minor burns, cuts, and scrapes. In its pure form, it is helpful for many skin conditions and ailments. Emu Oil can also be added to other products - lotions, creams, shampoos, etc to make them more effective.
What is Emu Oil Used For?
Emu Oil's ability to penetrate through the skin and deliver bio-nutrients to promote new cell generation, increase blood flow and drain away redness and inflammation has made it successful in treating many cases of acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions. Emu Oil is also effective on first and second-degree heat, chemical and radiation burns. It takes away the pain of the burn and reduces scarring and blistering. Most wounds and surgical incisions heal much faster with emu oil. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it a natural treatment for the pain associated with arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, shingles and even fibromyalgia. It also improves mobility. Professional athletes use emu oil in the locker room before games to loosen up tight muscles and after games to treat sports injuries.
Ingesting Emu Oil has shown to reduce joint inflammation, lower cholesterol and triglycerides and give all of the benefits of Fish Oil with its composition of Omega 3, 6 and 9 without the risks of heavy metal contamination. Emu Oil has also been shown to increase hair growth and reawaken sleeping hair follicles as well as increase strength and health of the scalp and hair shafts.

Where does Emu Oil come from?
Emu Oil is rendered from the fat of the Emu bird. Our oil comes from Emu that are raised on small family farms in the USA. The birds are primarily raised for their heart-healthy meat; the oil is a by-product. Hides, bones, and feathers are also used. When the bird is processed for its meat the layer of fat between the muscle and skin is frozen and shipped to a specialty oil rendering facility to be rendered and refined.

Why Vitamin is E added?
All oils are subject to oxidation which is a chemical reaction that produces free radicals, which in turn creates a chain reaction that damages the oils. Vitamin E is full of antioxidants which neutralize free radicals by giving up some of their own electrons. In making this sacrifice, they act as a natural "off" switch for the free radicals which terminates that chain reaction and extends the shelf-life of oils. We are using a natural Vitamin E (not synthetic), derived from Rosemary and add only .01% to the oil at the end of processing.

How Does Emu Oil Work?
The composition of Emu Oil is very similar to that of human skin. Emu Oil, unlike petroleum and many plant-based oils, does not contain phospholipids. The presence of phospholipids causes many oils to coat the skin’s surface and plug pores. This is why emu oil is so rapidly absorbed into the skin and allows your skin to breathe. Emu Oil contains abundant Omega 3 and 6, 7 and 9, which increases its ability to encapsulate and carry other compounds through the skin. That is why emu oil-enhanced products like our DuoFlex Topical Pain Cream work so well.
How to use Emu Oil?
Just apply a few drops to the desired area. Gently massage. You'll notice that it absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling. Remember, a little goes a long way; if the oil does not quickly absorb into the skin - you've applied too much. Our Emu Oil is a food-grade oil and can be ingested to support your heart, nervous and digestive systems and reduce systemic, chronic inflammation which is the root cause of many disorders and diseases. You can ingest the oil with a spoon, but most people prefer to take gel caps. Read more on the benefits of ingesting Pure Emu Oil.
How to tell it's the best Pure Emu Oil?
When you buy Emu Oil and Emu Oil Products it is important to know your source. Small U.S. farms that use sound natural and humane practices will produce the highest quality fat and studies have shown that emu raised in Northern climates produce fat with higher penetration and anti-inflammatory properties. Remember that fatty tissue is used to store excess toxins; Emu raised in sanitary conditions, without hormones, unnecessary antibiotics, chemical pesticides or herbicides provide the cleanest fat.

Further look for rendering and refining practices. The American Emu Association created a certification program where 3rd party lab analysis is used to ensure the composition, purity, and stability of the oil. Always look for the AEA Certified Seal.
