Dremu Oil is an interesting anti-wrinkle oil produced by the Miami, Florida based company Dremu Skincare. What makes this product so “interesting?” The primary ingredient in Dremu Oil is an oil derived from the emu bird. If you’re a little rusty on your exotic animals, an emu is a large, flightless Australian bird that closely resembles an ostrich. Dremu Oil’s primary claim is that it will reverse and minimize the signs of aging. Dremu Skincare also manufacturer several additional skin care products targeted to help with other skin concerns. These products include Dremu Cashmere, which is a dedicated hand cream, and Dremu Midnight, which is meant for evening use. All products feature emu oil as a key active ingredient.
But what’s the big deal about emu oil? Some studies have shown that emu oil has potential to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for keeping skin firm and plump, and as we age our body’s natural collagen production inevitably slows. That is why many anti-wrinkle products on the market today claim to stimulate collagen production one way or another. Emu oil also appears to contain a high concentration of antioxidants such as Vitamin A and Vitamin E. These attack the free radicals that cause cell death. Emu oil consists of 70% unsaturated fatty acids and was originally used as a folk remedy for treating wounds and damaged skin.
Dremu Skincare’s signature product is their Dremu Oil anti-aging treatment. What’s in it? Dremu Oil is actually a highly concentrated serum made of 100% emu oil. Emu oil is, not surprisingly, extracted from the fat of the Australia emu. Few details are given regarding this extraction process. As a native rememdy, emu oil is famous for its ability to treat burns, insect bites and scarring. However, Dremu oil offers no real research data to prove emu oil’s potential as an anti-wrinkle treatment.

The Bottom Line
We can definitely see what the manufacturers of Dremu Oil were thinking when they decided to put this product on the market. The exotic oil seems to work wonders as an Australian folk remedy. But how well does that translate into anti-wrinkle results for you? Unfortunately, Dremu Oil doesn’t go far enough when explaining how this ancient ingredient has made the transition to the modern world. We’d like to see some product trials and comparisons. Does Dremu Oil stand up against the current crop of cutting edge, science-based peptide wrinkle treatments on the market? At those prices, we’d hope so! We would definitely want to know more about this before we cleared off a space on our bathroom shelf for it.
