Maintenance Plus Lotion

Thunder Ridge Emu Products Maintenance Plus, natural and unscented, moisturizes while protecting the skin from exposure and chafing. Maintenance Plus acts as a barrier, keeping irritants away from the skin while binding moisture to the skin. A favorite among health care professionals. Maintaining hydration, skin integrity, and elasticity is essential for the prevention of dry skin, scaling and dermatitis which could lead to the formation of ulcers and pressure sores. Due to lack of circulation, keeping the skin lubricated will always be a problem for bed-bound patients, diabetics, wheelchair patients, people undergoing chemotherapy and older adults. However, the hyper-oxygenation of Essential Fatty Acids helps increase the blood flow, improving circulation and speeding up the healing process. In addition to the prevention of skin breakdown, the topical application of Thunder Ridge Maintenance Plus is an excellent way of reducing friction while preventing water loss and skin dehydration.

Thunder Ridge Emu Oil naturally contains Linolenic Acid (Omega 3), Linoleic Acid (Omega 6), and Oleic Acid (Omega 9) along with other Essential Fatty Acids. These Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) have proven beneficial in aiding the healing process. Often called the "Wonder from Down Under", the Australian Aboriginies have known for centuries that both the meat and oil of the emu possess special properties which explain its role as a traditional Aboriginal food and medicine.

Maintaining hydration, skin integrity and elasticity is essential for the prevention of dry, aging skin. The application of Emu Oil will allow the Essential Fatty Acids to penetrate the epidermal layers of the skin down to the basal layer where it enhances new cell proliferation. The hyper-oxygenation of the fatty acid esters contained in Emu Oil increase the local blood flow in the areas of application, accelerating the healing process.

A growing number of users, including professional sports teams, chiropractors, massage and physical therapists and other medical professionals, report excellent results from Emu Oil and Emu Oil basal rubs. There is clinical evidence that it contains a high level of Lenoleic Acid (Omega 6), a substance known to ease the discomfort of muscle and joint pain. In addition to the healing effects Emu Oil has on the skin and inflamed joints, it is also rich in anti-oxidants which help to slow down the aging process and in some cases actually reverses it. It's anti-bacterial, hypo-allergenic and a natural non-comedogenic. Small Wonder it's a favorite among skin care professionals!

About Thunder Ridge Emu Products
Thunder Ridge Emu Products CEO Anne Geller has raised emus since 1993 on her 30-acre ranch outside of Manassas, Virginia. Today, around 2000 emus --flightless birds native to Australia-- roam freely in large fenced pastures in the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains. Thunder Ridge is the largest emu farm in the eastern United States. Ms. Geller named the Thunder Ridge farm and her company after the low-pitched thunder sound that female emus make. The Australian aborigines' nickname for the emu is translated as "thunder chicken."

Thunder Ridge's unique all-natural feed program is a customized blend of grains and minerals. Thunder Ridge uses no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones or animal proteins. All meat and oil products from Thunder Ridge emus are completely drug-free. The American Heart Association recommends emu meat, which is low in fat and cholesterol and high in protein and iron. Top chefs and educated consumers have discovered the taste of emu meat is similar to lean beef.

Emu Oil has been used for thousands of years by Australian aborginees for its moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. It is one of the most promising ancient remedies to catch on in this millennium!
