Local Natural "Farmacy" Product Featured in National Dermatology Newsmagazine

All natural emu oil, Maryland's newest farm commodity, is attracting national attention from sun worshippers and the dermatologists commissioned to keep them looking young.

Outback Medic Survival Gear for Skin (R) emu oil products were recently featured in the new products section of Dermatology Times (R) the leading newsmagazine for dermatologists. Outback Medic is the emu oil division of the Southern Cross Ranch of Berlin which is owned by local dental health care providers, Dr. Michael and Alexandra Hall RDH.

A staple of ancient Aboriginal Australian medicine derived from the flightless six foot tall emu bird, emu oil is recognized by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Registry as an active substance.

This unique natural substance is the subject of patents and scientific research seldom seen in dermatological circles. Dr. Michael Holick of Boston University was awarded an international patent WO 96/34596 titled, 'Use of Emu Oil For Stimulating Skin and Hair Growth' in which Dr. Holick lists the use of topical emu oil " to treat skin wrinkles and rejuvenate aged and photo-damaged skin. It has been discovered that emu oil can be topically applied to stimulate melanogenesis ( pigment forming cells important in the tanning process) in the skin".

This uniquely penetrating blend of beneficial Omega 3,6, and 9 essential fatty acids is also the focus of scientific study by Dr. Robert Nicolosi and associates of University of Massachusetts who documented the transdermal delivery and biologic activity of emu oil in normalizing skin, exciting news to anti-aging beauty and dermatological circles.

Dermatologist Esta Kronberg recommends topical application of emu oil for a variety of skin ailments, "I give it to the worst patients with extremely severe problems such as burns, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema and I've been extremely pleased with the results. It brings immediate relief to a lot of individuals, and as a result, I have alot of happy patients."
