What are the health benefits of Emu oil?
Dr. G.R. Hobday (Australia) has done ten years of clinical experimentation with the following results:

1) Eczema - reduces irritation and inflammation of the skin.

2) Keloids - reduces recent scarring and have anti-inflammatory action against the formation of keloid tissues.

3) Burns - promotes faster healing with less pain and scarring.

4) Joints - reduces pain, swelling and stiffness where joint is close to the skin surface.

5) Bruising and Muscle pain - provides significant benefit to recent bruising and muscle pain where injury is relatively superficial. Massaged, post-exercise muscle strains are reduced due to anti- inflammatory action.

6) Wounds - applied to epithelialised wounds appears to reduce scar tissue formation and anti-inflammatory action soothes a wound after surgery.

7) Insect bites - the sting and itching is greatly reduced due to the anti-inflammatory properties.

Dr. A. Zemtsov ( Assistant Professor in Dept. of Dermatology and Biochemistry at Texas Tech University's Health Science Center.) discovered the emu oil to be highly penetrating, a good emulsifier, bacteriostatic (does not promote growth of bacteria), hypoallergenic ( has a low irritating potential),and is non-comedogenic ( non-pore- clogging).

Currently many cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies are researching liposomes, which are highly penetrating and can go through the skin barrier carrying any medication with it. Emu oil is a natural occurring substance with these qualities. One gallon of Emu oil may cost $400 but compare that to one ounce of liposome costing $2000!
