Question: I have very sensitive skin and try to use only all natural products. A clerk at my local health food store mentioned something to me about Dremu Oil to fight the signs of aging. What is it and where can I get it?
Answer: Dremu Oil is made by Dremu Skincare, a Miami based company. It is made entirely from animal based oil extracted from the emu, an ostrich-like bird native to Australia. It is not clear whether the emus are harvested of the oil like wool from a sheep, or whether the extract is taken from the meat after they are killed. They claim to be humane and raise the birds on free-range farms.
Emu oil is said to have moisturizing effects and to reduce wrinkles without clogging pores by penetrating immediately and deeply. It also may calm the skin, diminish fine lines, and encourage healing, which may be beneficial for those with other skin problems like acne. You use 2-4 drops and spread them evenly in the areas you want to improve. Clinical research is sited that supports Dremu Oil as hypo-allergenic and non-irritating. It contains no other ingredients like preservatives, perfumes, or stabilizers.
Clinical studies show that emu oil regenerates collagen so you should see effects within 4-6 months if you apply it 2-3 times a day. They also claim that it helps stretch marks, age spots, burns, psoriasis, hair loss, eczema and so on. If you look in the extensive FAQ section on the Dremu website, you will find numerous researchers, experts, studies, and health care practitioners providing positive results or reviews of emu oil. Dremu offers a 30-day money back guarantee and also provides testimonials and press reviews supporting the product.
If you do shop for an anti-wrinkle product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively promote long-term improvements on the appearance of wrinkles and an overall healthy complexion. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
