While lipid replenishment methods are still being developed by dermatological scientists, Emu Oil is already an excellent natural oil for lipid replenishment that has literally been used for centuries.
1. After cleansing the skin, apply a light amount of your favorite copper peptide product (such as CP Serum, GHK-Cu Crepey Skin Escape, or Super Cop Cream).
2. After copper peptides have penetrated, a light amount of Emu Oil-S Lipid Replenisher can be used on top as a moisturizer and penetrating agent to increase efficacy.
Additional Tips: Apply a light coating of Emu Oil to your skin or scalp. If your skin feels too oily, remove excess oil with a tissue (enough will remain on your skin to still be effective).
HOW IT'S DIFFERENT:
Would you like to find a moisturizer that works just as perfectly as your own skin oil did when you were a child? Emu Oil is a unique moisturizer that is 100% natural. Rich in essential fatty acids (from both the omega 3 and omega 6 families), it gently replenishes your skin's lipids, restoring a naturally supple and smooth look.
The added antioxidants in Dr. Loren Pickart's version (Emu Oil-S) result in a golden/orange color. It is a semi-liquid (pourable) at room temperature, but solidifies when refrigerated.
Treat your skin with an ancient Australian resource that is enhanced by modern science and Dr. Pickart's creative genius. Emu Oil comes from a small ostrich-like bird. The emu (Doromiceius novae-hollandiae) is the world's second largest bird, only second to the ostrich. Australian Aborigines discovered the benefits of Emu Oil many thousands of years ago and used its helpful properties on skin.
Skin Biology's peroxide-free emu oil is very stable. Stored at room temperature, it lasts about 3-6 months (depending on the room). If refrigerated, emu oil can last at least 1 year. Skin Biology refrigerates our Emu Oil-S before the bottle-filling process to further extend its life. However, those living in very hot weather should store their product in a refrigerator.
Today, scientific research has confirmed the beneficial effects of Emu Oil on skin. Emu Oil contains up to 70% of unsaturated fatty acids. Many oils that contain as much unsaturated fatty acids would be too easily oxidized. In fact, this is one reason why you should be very careful with oils that contain too much unsaturated fats - you do not want lipid peroxides on your skin.
However, in the case of Emu Oil, you never have need to worry. First of all, it has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acid-oleic acid. This fatty acid makes this oil very stable and resistant to oxidation. It also makes it an excellent penetration enhancer as it helps other active ingredients into the skin. It contains about 20% of linoleic acid, which is an omega 6 fatty acid required for skin integrity and 2% of omega 3 fatty acid, which naturally calms itchy skin.
Emu Oil is called nature's perfect moisturizer for a reason - it is easily absorbed, non-irritating and is perfectly compatible with your skin. In this formula, pure emu oil is further enhanced with natural antioxidants such as coenzyme Q10, mixed tocopherols and carotenoids.
Emu Oil-S Lipid Replenisher also works as a great penetrating agent to control or moderate the strength of strong products.
Apply a light amount of Emu Oil-S after applying copper peptides to increase efficacy and make the cream/serum stronger. When applied on top, it will help push down more of the copper-peptides, thus making the treatment stronger.
Apply a light amount of Emu Oil-S before applying copper-peptides to make the cream/serum milder. Basing the skin first with a light amount of Emu Oil will serve to slow down the penetration rate of the copper-peptide cream, thus making it milder.
