WHY EMU OIL
Although Emu Oil has many uses, there are two primary characteristics that make Emu Oiluseful.
- Emu Oil is a naturally powerful “transdermal carrier” which means that it penetrates the skin with great efficiency.
- Secondly, it has moisturizing and non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) properties.
Several factors allow Emu Oil to effectively penetrate the skin. Emu Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, Omega-3, 6, and 9. First, the fatty acid properties of Emu Oil are very similar to that of humans. In addition, the monounsaturated fatty acid, oleic acid is the major fatty acid found in Emu Oil. Oleic acid enhances the delivery of the other ingredients found in Original Blue-Emu®. Clinical research has shown that properly rendered Emu Oil penetrates the skin even more effectively than oleic acid by itself. The ability of emu oil to penetrate our skin so efficiently, also makes it a carrier for other effective ingredients, like aloe vera, glucosomine, and trolamine salicylate.
Fatty acids are the building blocks of fats. Some fatty acids are “essential” because we need them to live, yet we cannot manufacture our own. Of the hundreds of different fatty acids found in nature, 20 of them are common in human foods, and two are essential to human health. These two are therefore called essential fatty acids and one of them is found in the emu oil of Blue-Emu. Essential Fatty Acids stimulate metabolism, increase metabolic rate, increase oxygen uptake, increase energy production, are required for the maintenance of cell membrane fluidity and stability and for proper cell division and genetic expression.
For thousands of years the native Aborigines used the emu fat as a skin moisturizer, antiseptic and aid to soothe muscles and joints. Click here to read about how emu oil can help you achieve healthy & radiant skin!
Is Emu Oil Safe?
The incredible properties possessed by emu oil and its unsurpassed ability to penetrate the skin seem almost too good to be true. The natural question arises, “Is Emu oil safe?” The answer is “YES”. Further scientific inquiry has shown that properly rendered emu oil, so closely resembling the oil in human skin, is absolutely hypoallergenic.
