How to Buy the Best Emu Oil
Many people are now becoming aware of the health benefits of emu oil. It’s use originated from the Aborigines in Australia hundreds of years ago. Did you know that emu oil is almost identical to the fatty acid makeup of your skin? This makes it one of the few natural skin products that actually nourishes and heals your skin.
Due to the increasing popularity of this healthy oil, more and more people are looking for the best emu oil to buy. So how do you choose the best emu oil? What about quality and purity? How do you know you’re getting the highest quality emu oil for your skin? Since you’re most likely using emu oil as a topical preparation for your skin, using a good quality product is very important. There are 3 main criteria for choosing the best emu oil:
1) Are you getting 100% pure, Fully-Refined emu oil?
2) Do you want emu oil from an organic farm – raised without antibiotics, steroids, and hormones? How do you know your emu oil is from an organic farm?
3) If you buy emu mixed into cosmetics, such as soaps and shampoos, how much actual emu oil are you getting in your products?
1. Always buy 100% pure, Fully-Refined emu oil!
Research studies have proven the effectiveness of 100% pure, Fully-Refined emu oil. Emu oils of lesser quality cannot guarantee the same effectiveness or quality. 100% pure, Fully-Refined emu oil assures you that the oil is free of bacteria, toxic metals, and other contaminants.
One organization that provides a certification program for 100% pure refined emu oil is the American Emu Association. It’s one of the largest organizations that provides leadership and guidelines for emu farming in North America. Members of this non-profit trade association practise humane and environmentally-friendly farming.
AEA-Certified emu oil is 100% pure, Fully-Refined Emu Oil that:
– Hasn’t been mixed with other refined oils
– Has been tested and certified by the American Oil Chemist Society (AOCS)
The American Oil Chemist Society (AOCS) provides strict guidelines, rules and regulations for an oil to be classified as Fully-refined. A sample of each emu oil batch is held for further testing – should it’s purity be questioned.
Emu oil with the ranking of “Fully-Refined” is deemed appropriate for cosmetic, pharmaceutical and/or dietary supplement use. Fully-Refined emu oil has been processed at high temperatures to remove any contaminants. The AEA has researched the effects of high temperatures and found there was no damaging effects to the emu oil itself. Emu oil certified by the AEA is considered to be the highest quality for personal use.
2. Is your emu oil from a farm that practices humane and environmentally friendly farming?
How do you know if the emu oil you’re using was from emu raised on steroids, antibiotics or growth hormones?
One benefit of using AEA-certified emu oil is that all of its members practise safe and humane emu farming. They don’t use steroids or antibiotics on their emu and they believe in organic farming practises.
3. How much emu oil are you getting in emu soaps, emu shampoos and other cosmetics?
Many companies now offer emu oil in different preparations, such as emu oil shampoos, skin lotions, etc. One important thing to look for is the actual amount of emu oil in your product. A general rule of thumb is the higher up the ingredient is listed on the ingredient list – the higher amount of that ingredient mixed into the total product. If you buy emu oil soap and you see that emu oil is listed at the very end of the ingredient list, this tells you that you’re probably not getting too much emu oil in it.
Even better if the product lists the actual amount of emu oil in your cosmetic product. . . but this is rare. Again, it’s “Buyer Beware” – always look at the ingredient labels to see exactly what your getting. . . or not getting. FAQ to Buying Emu Oils
1. Is there a difference between white emu oil and yellow emu oil?
The color differences in oil is most likely due to the diet of the emu. Research has shown there is no difference between different colors of emu oil for its intended effect.
2. Is Australian emu oil better than American emu oil?
Some people that sell Australian emu oil will try to convince you that Australian emu oil is a better product than American emu oil. Nothing could be further from the truth. The American Emu Association compared the fatty acid components of emu oils from 9 different countries, including USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia – They found no significant difference in quality.
3. How much should you pay for Fully Refined emu oil?
The cost of emu oil will vary with the amount you’re buying. You can get small 1 ounce bottles, up to large 1 liter jugs. My research found that the average cost of emu oil works out to about $5 – $10 per ounce. Buying larger quantities will usually get you a cheaper price per ounce since you’re buying in bulk.
4. Can you get a money-back guarantee when buying emu oil?
Some producers of emu oil may offer you a money back guarantee. This tells you that the emu farmer stands behind the purity of his/her product and is willing to offer you a refund if you’re not pleased with it. Most AEA-certified emu oil comes with a money-back guarantee.
5. Should you only buy AEA-certified emu oil?
This is your own decision. There are many emu farms that produce excellent products and are not members of the American Emu Association. The benefit of AEA-certified emu oil is that each batch is tested for purity – and a sample is held for analysis if there’s a question about its purity. You may not get this with non-certified emu oils.
6. Where can you get AEA-certified emu oil?
The American Emu Association has a great list of emu farmers that are members of the AEA and adhere to the strict guidelines and regulations set out for membership within this organization. Try doing a search on google. com for “AEA-certified emu oil” for more results.
