Since I started enjoying wearing my hair in it's natural state more often, I have been on a never ending quest to find the perfect oil. I have tried everything from Argan, to Olive, to Coconut, and any other plant derived oil there is. I probably would have never guessed that my quest would end when I found an animal derived oil that worked better than all the rest combined!
InstaNatural’s Ultra Premium Emu Oil is 100% pure and fully refined, packed with powerful ingredients. Emu oil is derived from adipose tissue harvested from certain subspecies of the Australian Emu.
It is naturally rich in unsaturated fatty acids and provides unsurpassed moisturizing benefits to the skin and hair. It is composed of approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids. The largest component is oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Emu oil also contains roughly 20% linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) and 1-2% linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid); all of which help to promote healthy hair, skin, and nails.
It can be used on all skin types, and provides ultimate hydration for dry, itchy, flaky skin. It reduces appearance of scars, dark spots, stretch marks, burns and other discolorations. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe injuries, such as aching joints, sores muscles and sprains. It also helps to nourish the scalp and hair follicles to rejuvenate and replenish hair. It is nature's jack of all trades!
I have used it for everything, including a post shower skin treatment, and for hair nourishment. It is very close to the natural oils our body produces, so there is no greasy after feel and absorbs fairly quickly into the skin and hair.
I will definitely be purchasing this oil again, as it has been the most effective in promoting hair and scalp nourishment, as well as a highly effective stretch mark and eczema treatment.
The Oil is available online for $21.95. To purchase, and to learn more about all of Instanatural's products, visit Instanatural.com.
