Sheep placental extract is a rich source of ‘bioactive nutrients’ including essential amino acids, placental protein, Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Nucleic Acids, Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF’s), Senescent Cell Activating Factors (SCAF’s) and antioxidants.
• Stimulates skin cell renewal by reinvigorating old cells and generating new healthy cells.
The result is a youthful appearance.
• Provides intense hydration to skin, returning firmness and suppleness whilst reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
• Reduces pigmentation and diminish the appearance of age spots, blemishes and discolouration.
• Promotes a smooth, translucent skin complexion.
• Increases skin elasticity thereby reducing the appearance of saggy skin.
• Encourages rapid healing of new scars and reduces the visibility of existing scars.
• Returns vigour to dry, aged skin ensuring younger and more radiant looking skin.
• Helps balance the skin’s natural sebum production and reduce open pores.
• Aids in regulating the menstrual cycle, easing menstrual pain and alleviating menopausal symptoms.
• Improves energy and vitality.
Q. What are amino acids?
A. Amino acids are building blocks of proteins and are needed for most bodily functions. ‘Essential’ amino acids cannot be created from other compounds in the human body, hence they must be ingested.
Q. What are Superoxide Dismutases?
A. Superoxide Dismutases (SOD) are an important antioxidant defence in nearly all cells that are exposed to oxygen as they protect the cell against superoxide toxicity. Additionally, SOD has a powerful anti-inflammatory benefit and may reduce free radical damage to skin.
Q. What is Hyaluronic Acid?
A. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is one of the major components of skin and is involved in tissue repair, plus it increases skin hydration. HA’s interaction with the cells CD44 drives collagen synthesis and ensures normal skin function. It is believed to be a key factor in fighting the appearance of ageing.
Q. What is Epidermal Growth Factor?
A. Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is found in many human tissues and essentially stimulates cell growth, proliferation and differentiation.1
Q. What do Senescent Cell Activating Factors do?
A. Senescent Cell Activating Factors (SCAFs) activate the renewal of aged cells thereby resulting in rejuvenated cells that are youthful, healthy and well hydrated.
Rebirth Australian Emu Oil is made from the fat of the native Australian bird, the emu. It has historically been
used by Aborigines for the treatment of burns, wounds, bruises, and as a pain reliever for bone, muscle,
and joint disorders.
Rebirth Australian Emu Oil contains a small percentage of emu oil (0.5-1%) to help moisturise and penetrate deeply into the skin.
Raw emu oil contain approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids. The largest 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.
Q. Is emu oil a safe ingredient in cosmetics?
A. Two studies suggest that emu oil may have anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to heal wounds. Historically it has been used by Aborigines for the relief of fevers, coughs, minor pain, arthritic joints, bruises, cuts and sores. 2, 3

Q. What is bee propolis?
A. Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from trees and flowers. In addition to working as a dental antiplaque agent, evidence from dentistry research4 suggests propolis may actively protect against forms of oral diseases due to its antimicrobial properties. 5, 6, 7, 8
Q. Why does your toothpaste contain tea tree oil?
A. Aborigines traditionally inhaled the oil from crushed tea tree leaves to treat coughs and colds. In the 1920s a scientific paper was published that outlined the extremely potent antimicrobial activity of tea tree oil. 9, 10
Q. Why does your toothpaste contain eucalyptus oil?
A. Eucalyptus oil has long been used as an antiseptic and is specifically used in dental care due to its antimicrobial properties. 11
Q. Why does your toothpaste contain peppermint?
A. Peppermint has a long tradition of medicinal use dating back thousands of years, however it is used in our mouthwash to provide the cooling sensation that follows from use. 12
