Ever heard of emu oil? Many say it can help erase the appearance of eye puffiness,  fine lines and bothersome crow’s feet. But are the benefits of this bird-derived product just a bunch of baloney? I decided to investigate emu oil further, and here’s what I found:

Emu Oil for Smoother Skin

Emu oil is natural oil derived from the fat of the emu, a flightless bird indigenous to Australia. Sounds kind of strange, doesn’t it? It has been used by native Australians for hundreds of years as a folk remedy to soothe minor skin irritations.

Why slather it on your skin?

Emu oil is rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are necessary for the formation and maintenance of cell membranes — including those of skin cells, which are continuously formed and replaced by the body every 21 days. Emu oil contains vitamin E, which is a natural antioxidant that’s also full of soothing, moisturizing properties.

Emu oil is said to offer nourishing, softening and moisturizing benefits for smoother, healthy-looking skin.

How to add it to your beauty routine

This non-greasy, 100% pure emu oil can be applied directly to the skin and absorbs quickly to provide soothing moisture and nourishment. Use on face, neck, hands, feet or wherever your skin could use a little extra TLC.
