“Emu Oil is gentle for all skin types, non-toxic & natural, non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) and hypo-allergenic (non-irritating) so its great for people with sensitive skin and allergies. Emu Oil is effective in its anti-inflammatory properties, and has been found to give a similar effect as prescriptions medication. When I had my toiletry business, I had a couple of customers with severe skin irritations and I would make this for them. Emu can be costly, but the benefits out weight the cost factor.”
