Emu Oil for Hair Growth Treatment
Emu oil is oil derived from adipose tissue harvested from certain subspecies of the emu, Dromaius novaehollandiae, a flightless bird indigenous to Australia.
Unadulterated emu oil can vary widely in colour and viscosity, but, assuming the emu has enjoyed a natural diet, is generally a yellow liquid.It is composed of approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids. The largest component is oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Emu oil also contains roughly 20% linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) and 1-2% linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid).
Types of emu oil
Emu oil has a wide variety of uses and can be applied in different ways depending on the condition or treatment. Both types of emu oil we offer are AEA Certified Fully Refined, and suitable for use anywhere on the body. However, depending on the desired outcome, the type of emu oil you use may be important.
The emu is a flightless bird that resembles a small ostrich. Emu oil is taken from the fat of this bird during processing. It is used to make medicine.
