Dry skin is caused when your skin loses too much water and sebum (skin oil) and becomes dehydrated. Dry skin is the result of the impaired skin barrier and lacking the essential healthy fats in the top layer of the skin. This condition may worsen from mild roughness to flaking or even cracking.
Dry skin is common and can cause with or without underlying disease. Daily causes include a dry environment, inadequate hydration, stripping cleansers, hot baths, and rubbing/tugging the skin. Natural ingredients help intensely hydrate skin and relieve dryness. Emu oil and Aloe vera are considered potent natural moisturizing agents that deliver soft, supple, and soothed skin.
Emu Oil: The nutritional profile contains fatty acids (oleic, palmitic, and linoleic acid, including omega 6 and 9), antioxidants, and vitamins A, D, E, and K2. This nourishing oil acts as a sealant and locks in moisture to reduce water loss. It also penetrates the top layers of the skin, replenishes lipids, and helps strengthens the barrier. Moreover, naturally anti-inflammatory emu oil helps soothe skin and prevents irritations that worsen dry skin conditions. With antioxidant protection, emu oil also helps neutralize free radical damage from UV, pollutants, and aging.
Aloe Vera: With water, amino acids, vitamins, sterols, and enzymes, aloe vera is known for skin hydration, soothing, and clarity. Its moisturizing effect helps decrease dry and itchy skin, while its anti-inflammatory activity reduces redness and soothes sunburns. Aloe vera also helps speed up wound healing and fade scarring.
Sadly, dry skin never sees long-term benefits without commitment. But well-formulated moisturizers often respond positively, increasing skin hydration and elasticity. Our Emu Dry Skin & Eczema Crème is enriched with fatty acid-rich emu oil and moisture-dense aloe vera to help hydrate, trap moisture, and repair skin barrier function. Effective against mild to moderate or extremely dry skin (xerosis), instantly leaving skin soft, supple, and soothing. But consistency, in the morning and the evening, is the key to healthy, moisturized skin.
