Ostrich oil comes from the fat of the ostrich. This biggest flightless bird in the world, the Ostrich, has been a valuable source of food and other purposes for thousands of years for many native tribes. For centuries ostrich oil has been used by Egyptian, Roman and African cultures for the relief of dry skin, burns, lesions, eczema, sunburn and even dry hair.
It is a great source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 which contain vital fatty acids for the growth of new skin cells and is naturally rich in vitamins well known for skin rejuvenating. Because of the fact that domesticated ostriches are being fed with an all- natural diet without any animal by-products, the natural oil is fantastic for your skin. It penetrates into the skin and provides a moisture layer without clogging skin pores and leaves your skin without feeling greasy.
It can be combined with a variety of essential oils to sooth aches and pains.
