GREEMU- A Vegan Alternative to Emu Oil

Last year I had the chance to try Emu Oil which we really enjoyed. Recently, I had the chance to review a similar product called GREEMU made by Devonian, which is also distributed by the same makers of Emu oil, Koru Naturals.
Emu oil is derived from the fat tissues of Emu's and it works great for skin conditions. But there are many out there who prefer vegan products (products not derived from animals). Devonian set out to make an equal product like Emu oil but this time from 100% plant products.

GREEMU is designed to help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used in hair to nourish dry hair and also help prevent split ends, giving hair a nice, healthy shine.

GREEMU is made up of:

  • Macadamia Seed Oil- Hydrates rough skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It also helps moisturize hair.
  • Palm Oil- Highly beneficial to skin.
  • Shea Butter- Contains Vitamin E and hydrates both skin and hair.
  • Sunflower Seed Oil- Repairs the skins barrier, reduces inflammation and hydrates dry skin.
  • Rice Bran Oil- Popular among Japenese women as it helps keep the skin wrinkle free and smooth. It also helps promote the production of collagen.

The only difference between Emu Oil and GREEMU is that GREEMU is designed to absorb much slower than Emu oil therefore you only need a few drops at a time, otherwise your skin or hair will end up greasy if you use too much.

I chose to use the oil as a daily facial moisturizer. After washing my face, I put a few drops on my hand and rubbed it in like I would use any other moisturizer. I felt that it left my skin feeling baby soft and well hydrated. I don't have too many wrinkles at this time so it was hard to say if it made a difference on the few I have during the time I used it, but I am curious to see how using it for the next few months results in my skin.

One of my daughters gets super dry hands during the winter time so we also used it on her hands. It really hydrated them and kept her hands from cracking.



You can see how red & dry her hands are before we put the oil on and within  minutes it took the redness away and they aren't nearly as dry!

I really liked how this oil made my skin feel and the difference it made on my daughters hands! This 4oz bottle will last a long time as it only takes a few drops at a time to use. The only thing I would change is the way this product is dispensed. It's hard to get just a few drops out of the pop top dispenser.

A side note, if you are allergic to plant products, it is advised not to use this oil.
