Emu Oil For Eczema
By Evelyn Lim

The latest skin care product for eczema appears to be derived from emu oil. Emu oil for eczema is becoming extremely popular as it has many properties that are suitable for the skin disorder. Emu oil can come as a topical lotion or oil for application to your skin. It also comes in capsules, shampoo and also as a soap alternative for bathing.

Emu oil is made from the fat of a bird called emu, a native bird of Australia. Australian aborigines had been harnessing the medicinal properties of emu oil for different purposes, for more than forty thousand years. However, its healing properties were only recently made known. These properties have been found to be most suitable for those with skin disorders such as eczema and for those with hair loss.

Eczema is a skin disease, characteristic with reddened rashes, irritation and itching. It is generally found that people with eczema are deficient in unsaturated fatty acids in their bodies. The structural profile of emu oil shows that it contains 70 % unsaturated fatty acids, of which 20% is linoleic fatty acid, a proven skin nourishment. This makes emu oil for eczema effective as it provides the missing ingredients for good and healthy skin. At the same time, you can also complement practical applications of emu oil with oral consumption to boost your fatty acid levels.

In addition, emu oil has many other significant properties. Emu oil is potentially bacteriostatic, which help to relieve the irritancy in the eczema symptoms. The triglyceride nature of the emu oil resembles the structural profile of the human skin, making it easier for effective skin penetration.

The anti-clogging nature of emu oil helps the skin to soak up the nutrients effectively. It adds plenty of nourishment to the skin and helps the skin maintain luster. The hypoallergenic nature and phospholipid absence makes it suitable for topical application in all types of skin.

However, before you start to order emu oil products, be extremely careful. It has been found that not all emu oil for eczema works! It appears that only certified emu oil products can deliver the medicinal results. The oil must be obtained from specially nurtured emu, free from diseases and also from 3 to 4 year old Emu birds. Strict standards in the extraction process have also to be adhered to.

It will be interesting to read of more studies done on the properties and healing benefits of emu oil. Reportedly, so far, emu oil has been shown to be effective for all types of eczema such as atopic eczema, allergic contact eczema, irritant contact eczema, infantile seborrhoeic eczema, adult seborrhoeic eczema, varicose eczema, and discoid eczema.

Evelyn Lim has been suffering from eczema for several years. Her recent flare-up led to her starting a site to report on her research and findings on natural eczema treatments. Read about her journey to getting beautiful skin here at http://www.eczemaskintreatment.com
