Emu Oil v Rosehip Login/Join
 
posted
Would rosehip oil be a good substitute for emu oil? Or red tea serum?
I'm a bit funny about using emu oil. I know it is a by-product of other emu products etc, and my not wanting to use it wil achieve very little .. but I still have a thing about it and any animal products. It just goes against my beliefs.
Anyone??

Thanks

Thanks Deb
I was just reading the FAQ page on skinbio and found an answer to this also.
I will definately try the squalene.

Appreciated

I have to butt in here as you really can't go past squalane -diluted 100% organic rose hip oil is a great product but used 2 drops to 3 of water so you don't get that greasy feeling, also wheatgerm oil is very light. My fave is Squalane but when funds are low I use rose hip.
Deb knows more as she has used these products longer than me.
DY also told me rose hip & wheat germ are fine.

Thanks for your input I will definately try the squalene. It's on the next list.

Doesn't rosehip oil have Vitamin C? If so, how would it affect the efficiency of the SCRPs?

The amount of vitamin C in the oil should not cause any issues.

I was using Rose hip oil before I got onto Emu oil. I have found Emu oil really good for me. Another good option is Jojoba oil.
