The emu mainly known for the exploitation of its skin, which is made of leather. Emu fat is also used to make oil which is used for therapeutic purposes for the treatment of skin problems. This oil is naturally rich and balanced in essential omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids. Its delicate meat is also highly prized for its low-fat content (2-5%) and its high protein and potassium content.
Emu oil was originally used by Australian aborigines and is now marketed for use for many conditions.
- Hydrates dry skins: Emu oil contains natural antioxidants that slow down the effects of aging. Close to human sebum, it is one of the most effective oils for hydration of the skin. It is recommended for people who have dry or very dry skin or who want to protect their skin from climatic conditions.
- Relieves irritation of the skin: Emu oil quickly absorbed by the skin is hypoallergenic and relieves people who suffer from psoriasis and eczema. It also has natural healing properties that can decrease the occurrence of scars related to e.g. stretch marks or burns.
After being applied to the skin, this odorless, non- irritating product moistens and conditions the texture of the skin, leaving it none greasy and smooth. The benefits of emu oil are long lasting, even after repetitive washing of the skin.
- A dietary supplement rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6: Emu oil is also used as food supplements. Its health benefits are multiple in the sense that healthy food and balanced nutrition strengthen the immune system and keep the body healthy, including the skin.
The emu is currently widely distributed throughout Australia and its populations are considered fairly stable (by the mid-1980s, its populations were estimated at 625,000-725,000 birds).
How is it made?
The emu fat is removed from the bird, cleaned and refrigerated after being retrieved from the emu’s remains. There are a lot of methods used to extract the emu oil but they usually require heating the fat. The resultant oil is then cleaned and filtered and refined several times to remove impurities.
*It’s important to note that being on this list doesn’t promise that it will work for your skin type.* Our skin will decide which oil it likes the most and remember that skin takes two weeks to turn over so anything that pops up between week 1-2 was probably already going to happen.
Like other substances that are high in fat, carrier oils have a limited shelf life. Meaning that eventually they will go bad. It’s important to store oils in their original air-tight containers in a cool, dark place, such as the pantry, to maximize shelf life.
