Description Label Info

Emu Oil for Skin is a biological healing oil supplemented with anti-oxidants normally found in, but not derived from, human blood (such as leutin, lycopene, tocotrienols and tocopherols) to help reduce inflammation.

While lipid replenishment methods are still being developed by dermatological scientists, emu oil is already a very good natural oil for lipid replenishment. It comes from small ostrich-like bird, the emu.

Australian aborigines discovered the benefits of Emu Oil many thousands of years ago and used its helpful properties on damaged and sunburned skin. In more recent work, a study at Texas Tech reported that topically-applied Emu Oil reduces burn pain as effectively as when compared to 600 milligrams of Ibuprofen taken 3 times daily.

Skin researchers at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston reported that Emu Oil at up to 100 % concentration in lotions to be nonallergenic, non-comedogenic, have low irritation potential, and are bacteriostatic. While scientific studies on Emu Oil are just beginning, Emu Oil has been traditionally used help alleviate discomfort of arthritis, shingles, eczema, psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions.

Traditional skin moisturizers are formulated from a variety of low-cost oils and water-soluble chemicals (i.e. Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium PCA) that wet and loosen the skin's layer of outer protective proteins and also cover the skin with fats that impede water loss. This provides a brief moisturization of your skin but degrades the skin's protective properties against bacteria and viruses. Such moisturizing creams are a mixture of oil and water plus emulsifiers, stabilizers, preservatives and other chemicals. There is little evidence that such creams have any beneficial effect on skin.

Skin Biology has developed three skin moisturizers composed of biological oils to aid with skin moisturization but without causing skin damage. These are Emu Oil-S for Skin, Pure Squalane, and Calypso's Oil. Emu Oil-S for Skin is very similar in composition to human skin oils and acts to replenish skin lipids. Squalane/Squalene are the major lipids in human skin but decline from about 15% of fats in the skin to 5% by age 55. This decline is a key factor in a drier skin skin as we age. Calypso's Oil is a more protective oil originally designed for persons with eczema and composed of octyl palmitate, sesame oil, and sweet almond oil.

The supplements used in Emu Oil-S are Ubiquinone which helps skin energy metabolism, 7-keto DHEA which helps endogenous lipid synthesis in the skin, mixed natural tocotrienols and natural Vitamin E which are powerful anti-oxidants.
