Emu oil
i forgot to ask about emu oil as well. I used it on my feet and within about two or three weeks could see a major difference (cracked heels)...what do you have to say about it? is it effective for stretch marks and wrinkles?

Hi Keks, thank you for the question.

Emu oil has excellent moisturizing properties and there is some evidence that it may stimulate cell turnover. My belief is that it will not have a dramatic impact on wrinkles and stretch marks but it is worth a try.
