and out of curiosity wondered what was in it.
To my dismay I found out
" Emu Spirit’s Oil of Emu products contain the synergistic activity of all aspects of Emu oil, including its temperature sensitive Omega essential fatty acids. We control all stages of production, from farming of the Emus, to the processing and the rendering of fat into the 100% pure Oil of Emu, using our patented rendering system at our Melbourne factory"
" The farming and feeding of Emus plays a significant part in the quality of Emu oil. Our experience has shown that three year old Emus that have been through a breeding season appear to produce a more active oil than Emus processed just prior to their first breeding season as is the normal industry practice."
People actually rub the oil of this poor bird into their skin.
To me that just sounds barbaric.
And I know not being a vegetarian myself I probably shouldn't be throwing moral stones at others, but to me this just sounds so wrong.
Then I read that Cate Blanchett told Elle magazine that ,
"I also use—and I'll probably get some flack for this—emu oil. It's an Australian thing. The indigenous use it on their skin from the time they're babies. It works to protect the skin, help moisturize, and repair."
Cate Blanchett Gold. Why she uses Emu Oil
How bazaar is that?
I mean Cate is one of my favourite actresses in the world,
but how would she like being hunted for her joint oil,
so people could rub "Cate Blanchett Spirit" on their faces?-)
What do you have to say about that?
