Australian emu oil is made from the fat of the native Australian bird, the emu. It has historically been used by the Aborigines for the treatment of burns, wounds, bruises, and as a pain reliever for bone, muscle, and joint disorders.
Australian Emu cream contains a small percentage of emu oil (0.5-1%) to help moisturise and penetrate deeply into the skin.
rgest component is oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. It also contains about 20% linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) and 1-2% linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid). Research suggests emu oil applied topically may have anti-inflammatory properties and promote the healing of wounds.
