3rd Party Chemical Analysis Assures Purity
The American Emu Association created a certification program which invites oil processors to submit a 3rd party lab analysis for each batch of fully refined oil to ensure composition, purity and stability. For batch approval to be granted analysis must fall within certain pre-established guidelines including stringent specifications for moisture (water), peroxide and free fatty acids. These specifications reflect guidelines defined in the Emu Oil Guidelines and ensure the emu oil is 100% pure (uncut) and grants a level of safety for the consumer.
Processing Assures Quality of Emu Oil
This level of refining will guarantee oil with a long shelf life of 4 to 5 years; free of bacteria, hormones, toxic metals, pesticides, viruses and infections. Once approved a batch number is assigned which must be stamped or printed on each individual bottle or label which carries the AEA Certified logo. Always look for the AEA Certified Seal and batch number and be wary of impostors. You can ask me at any time for the batch analysis on oil you purchase.

Beware Fraudulent Emu Oil
In 2012 the American Emu Association decided to test Emu Oil sold online. There were 11 samples of emu oil purchased. 9 samples were American emu oil and 2 samples were Australian emu oil. The oil was purchased from emu oil retailers, and on eBay. The results were very surprising and shocking. Only 5 of the 11 samples of emu oil showed that they were pure emu oil. Read more ...
