Emu oil has been shown to increase epidermal proliferation of the skin and stimulate hair follicles. A study was conducted by Michael Holick, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medicine, Physiology, and Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine involving processed emu oil. It quickly became a topic of conversation in medical and other journals, because of his astounding results.
Dr. Holick and his associates were interested in factors that stimulated and inhibited hair and skin growth. They applied corn oil and emu oil to the skin of two groups of mice over a two week period. 24 hours before the end of the study the mice were given an injection of a label to monitor how quickly their DNA was multiplying. Skin was analyzed and they found that the mice that had received the emu oil had a 20% increase in DNA synthesis. This means that there was a 20% increase in proliferation activity, compared to the group that had corn oil applied.
The Boston University group also looked at hair follicles and skin thickness. They saw hair follicles that were much more robust and skin thickness that was amazingly increased. This suggested that emu oil stimulated skin and hair growth in these mice. In addition, they discovered that over 80% of hair follicles that had been asleep were woken up, and began growing hair.
The hair follicle goes through a cycle where there is a resting stage and an active stage in which hair grows. They found that there was an enhancement in the growth activity of the hair follicles and very good scientific evidence that they were stimulating skin growth.
...........what an astounding oil!
