3rd Party Chemical Analysis Assures Purity
The American Emu Association created a certification program that 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, the analysis must fall within specific pre-established guidelines, including stringent specifications for moisture (water), peroxide, and free fatty acids. These specifications reflect guidelines defined in the Emu Oil Guidelines, ensure the emu oil is 100% pure (uncut), and grant 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 bottle or label that carries the AEA Certified logo. Always look for the AEA Certified Seal and batch number, and be wary of impostors. You can ask me any time for the batch analysis on the 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 were Australian emu oil. The oil was purchased from emu oil retailers, Amazon and eBay. The results were shocking. Only 5 of the 11 samples of emu oil showed that they were pure emu oil. Read more ...
