If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Australian brands, it’s that they understand quality skincare. So you can imagine my excitement when Emu Tracks sent their Pure Emu Oil to me to test it out.
What exactly is emu oil? Well, let’s start with the bird itself.
An emu, not to be mistaken for an ostrich, is a flightless bird native to Australia. Emu oil is a collection of deposits below the skin of an emu that mostly contains fat. The fat is then filtered and processed in various ways until it becomes pure oil. The yellow oil is said to have a plethora of benefits, making it a popular go-to for many.
This leads us to the whole leading specialist manufacturing company Emu Tracks. Founded in 1996, Emu Tracks set out to build a product that was 100% natural, safe, and beneficial for all skin types, especially dry, irritated and sensitive skin. It started as a local business in Adelaide, South Australia’s coastal capital. It has successfully grown by expansion in the European, Singapore, and Hong Kong markets.

What I love about the website is that it’s categorized by conditions. Emu Tracks products are beneficial for; arthritis, eczema/psoriasis, muscle & joint pain, digestive disorders, scalp & hair loss, pregnancy & baby care, and skin nutrition.
Even better are the properties targeting your skin and health. Listed below are some of the many benefits of emu oil;
- include Omega 3, 6, 7 & 9
- vitamins A, D, E, F & K2
- no oil residue
- regeneration of skin tissue
- provides relief from arthritis, aches, and pains,
- REDUCES ITCHING
- reduction in scarring
- increases the healing process
Their product line is quite extensive and includes oils, capsules, balms, and lotions, liniment, and a men’s 3 in 1 body line.
After applying the oil to my hands, I was pleasantly surprised. It was lightweight, odorless, and left my hands with NO RESIDUE OR STICKINESS. This is crucial for me because most oils are so slippery, and stain my clothes, handbags, and anything I touch. So I highly approve of this oil.
Over fifteen years ago Emu Tracks’ mission was to create products that heal. To this day, it continues to thrive and be the leader in emu oil products.
