What Is Emu Oil and How It Benefits Your Skin
While shopping your skincare you may come across ingredients that you are totally unaware of. Many claim these ingredients improve the quality of your skin and contain anti-aging properties. Emu oil is commonly found in different face and body lotions, but what exactly does it do? Here we'll dive into exactly what Emu oil is and how it benefits your skin and relieves aches and pains.
What is Emu Oil?
Emu oil is collected from fat deposits of the emu bird, which is native to Australia. Once the fat is collected they pass through a filtration process to rid the oil of any bacteria, leaving behind helpful fatty acids. This oil has been used for thousands of years in Australian Aborigine culture and has since become a skin-protecting serum in many cultures.
Benefits of Emu Oil

The Omega in Emu oils are included for their potential to block inflammatory cytokines and prostaglandins. Collagen production may be improved, leaving skin more elastic and eliminating wrinkles at the molecular level. Emu oil is also known to:
