Anti-Aging Treatments for the Skin
If there is one common theme in women’s beauty concerns it’s the desire to keep
looking young. In the U.S. alone, women spend billions of dollars each year to fight the effects of aging and reduce the wrinkles
that form in the skin. Most of the products on the market today are the kinds of snake-oil potions that cost a lot and promise big
results, but do very little.
However, there are some products that have been developed that do work. Many of
these become known due to celebrity endorsements and ultimately on their own success. You’ve seen some of them on national
television, in magazines, and newspaper ads. But what are they? And what does it cost to use the same things that your favorite
We’ve done some research and have found the following information for you about
three of the most talked-about skin care products on the market today.
The Dremu Company makes a wide variety of products, most of which feature as a
key ingredient their own formulation of oil derived from the emu – including the namesake product, Dremu Oil. The company boasts
a triple refining process to produce the purest emu oil formula available. The product has been seen on Oprah, and has been
featured in magazines such as Vogue, Allure and Harper’s Bazaar.
Dremu Oil is marketed as an alternative to expensive and dangerous Botox
treatments, and touts such claims as:
• Reduces wrinkles without needles
• Light, odorless non pore clogging
• World's most effective moisturizer
• Penetrates deeply to reduce wrinkles
• Absorbs immediately
• Calms redness
• Plumps up fine lines
• Hastens healing
• Soothes roughness
• Re-hydrates dry, chapped, skin
The Dremu Oil itself is rather expensive, ranging in price from $58-$70 (U.S.) dollars per ounce, depending on the amount you
purchase. However, the company offers a wide variety of lotions, creams and products containing the oil with more modest prices.
$20-$40 (U.S.) dollars.
It should be noted that our research revealed Dremu Oil’s claims to be largely anecdotal or based on research by the manufacturer.
Independent review sources rated Dremu Oil as less-effective than other Emu Oil products, but Consumer Health Digest does rank
Dremu Oil in the Top 25 anti-wrinkle products on the market. (CHD hosts a dynamic listing that ranks new products as they are
released based on their own, independent testing.) That being stated, there are a number of testimonials from professional
estheticians who claim Dremu Oil is a must have product for ridding the skin of wrinkles.
