4 D Acres FAQ 1

Much of what we do at 4 D Acres is answer questions. We want to let you in on what other people are asking in case you had the same question but hadn’t asked it yet.

Q. I am trying to understand the differences between the various emu oils. It looks like the more qualities you are touting, the more refined the oil is, which is a little counter-intuitive to me! Please enlighten me. My main interest is in moisturizing, though I'm certainly interested in pain relief as well.

A. The differences between our 100% Pure Emu Oil, Clear Emu Oil and Ultra Emu oil are as follows:

Our 100% Pure Emu Oil is fully refined in a food grade, inspected refinery and is a creamy white oil. The creamy whiteness is from solids that melt at skin temperature and are absorbed into the skin.

The Clear Emu Oil is the 100% Pure Emu Oil which goes through a process called winterization that removes these solids (not additional refining) thus providing an oil which is absorbed by the skin faster as no solids are present.

Ultra Emu Oil
is the 100% Pure Emu Oil which has had some anti-inflammatory inhibitors removed by a patent pending process (not additional refining) thus making it 45% more effective for pain than the 100% Pure Emu Oil or the Clear Emu Oil.  

Q. I have a question about the Emu Oil soft gel caps. I have a lot of allergies so I have to check anything I ingest extremely carefully (even more than what I put on my skin). So I need from you please a complete list of everything that is in these gel caps, including what type of capsules they are. This would solve a real problem for me if there's nothing in there that will make me sick.

A. The Emu Oil Gel Caps consist solely of Pure Emu Oil with less than .2 of 1% of Tocopherol (All Natural Vitamin E) enclosed in a Gelatin Capsule.

How Pure is Your Emu Oil?

Earlier this year the American Emu Association (AEA) reported that there have been cases where emu oil has been adulterated or cut with other ingredients and then an attempt was made to pass the resulting product off as pure Emu Oil.

"We have heard of cases where unscrupulous dealers have cut the emu oil with vegetable oil or some other oil and then tried to sell it to an unsuspecting product company." Mike Eppley, president of the AEA.

Perhaps that is the reason that the AEA has made a random purchase of emu oil from different sources, including several online stores, eBay and Amazon, and directly from farms. Eleven total samples were purchased and sent to a lab that had never analyzed emu oil before thus removing any bias that might be present from labs that regularly analyze emu oil. A fatty acid profile was done on each sample, compared to the international trade rules for emu oil and only 5 of the eleven samples were confirmed as pure emu oil, in spite of the labels indicating that they were all pure emu oil. 6 of the eleven were found to be straight corn or soybean oil and or the same blended with emu oil.

In an earlier post, we described the AEA requirements for using the AEA Certified Emu Oil Seal, as well as the emu oil grading system. Please, if you are not purchasing your emu oil from us, be sure that you are getting what you pay for. 4 D Acres prides itself in providing you with the highest quality emu oil products.

Reputable emu oil distributors should have an available fatty acid profile of their oil that can be provided to customers and this can be compared to the international trade rules.
