1. Moisturizing Properties
Emu Oil is an occlusive moisturizer, meaning it locks moisture into the skin’s barrier and prevents water loss. Its small particle size penetrates deep into the skin and can also enhance other skincare products’ penetration when applied in combination with them. It also has a positive effect on collagen production.
Preventing inflammation is just one of the health benefits of Emu Oil as it inhibits pro-inflammatory messenger molecules in the body. Its high concentration of omega-3 aids in inhibiting inflammatory pathways from producing inflammatory compounds. This can be beneficial for digestive health and skin health as well.
3. Nutrient Rich
Emu Oil is packed with fatty acids, like oleic acid, palmitic acid and linoleic acid. It also contains vitamin A and E as well, necessary for your body’s defenses and cell membranes.
4. Other Uses
Emu Oil has been known to repel bugs due to its terpenes. It can also be helpful to reduce the swelling and irritation of bug bites as well. It may also be effective for healing cuts, burns or bruises.
If you’re looking for a moisturizer with a bit more to offer, purchase TLC’s Infinity Oil or Infinity Stick for your lips. Both are formulated with high-quality Emu Oil to nourish and heal the skin.
