Emu oil is made up of two parts, a liquid fraction, olein, and a more solid fraction, stearin. Optimum results are achieved when used together. Emu oil is a combination of fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes.
Ristia's emu oil has been professionally formulated without harsh or unnecessary additives to ensure that every ingredient has a direct affect on the skin's cells.It is fast becoming one of our most popular products for the treatment of Essential Fatty Acid Deficient skin, along with skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne and general aging.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) are an essential part of our Epidermal Skin Barrier Defence System, as our body cannot synthesize EFA's. Therefore 100% of EFA's needed for skin health needs to come from internal consumption and external application. When your skin is defficent in EFA's it will lead to an impaired epidermal barrier and Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL) causing the skin to be more pron to Pre-mature aging and pigmentation as well as problems like Eczema, Acne, Rosacea, Psoriasis.
Ristia's Emu oil helps introduce much needed EFA's naturally and without any side effects to your skin to assist in helping the skin repair and heal itself and restoring optimum function and skin health.
