Emu oil is a food by-product coming from the fat of the emu. The use of emu oil dates back 40 000 years to when the Australian Aborigines first used it to relieve minor aches and pains and to hasten wound healing.
Today emu oil is used for a multitude of reasons and is widely accepted as a useful natural product with many health benefits. It contains natural anti-inflammatory properties that will soothe irritated eczema skin. It is also able to penetrate deep into the dermis of the skin thus enabling deep moisturisation. Unlike many oils emu oil will not clog the pores of the skin.
Emu oil contained in Calendulis Plus Cream and Grahams Bath Oil is the most penetrative oil known to man. It is therefore very effective in treating dry skin. Emu Oil penetrates deeply to provide long lasting moisture. It also provides a protective coating to the skin adding extra protection from external irritants.
It is important to note that the Calendulis Plus Cream only contains a small amount of emu oil and is therefore not a moisturiser in itself. For the best effects I recommend Calendulis Plus Cream and Grahams Bath Oil be used in conjunction.
