Hi Mylink

Thanks for your question - it's a great one!

I haven't heard of it being used for wrinkles before but the makers of it say that "Emu Oil contains deep penetrating oils that are absorbed into your skin and lock in moisture, to replace your skins lost elasticity. With age, our skin over time loses its elasticity and becomes thinner and finely wrinkled. Oil producing, (sebaceous) glands become less active, and our skin becomes drier. The number of blood vessels in your skin also decrease, and your dermis can get thinner and more fragile, so you lose your youthful glow and thus wrinkles appear. In addition, our skin replaces old cells more slowly and cells repair themselves less effectively."

I'd also love to hear from other people who have used it and whether it has worked for them. I hope they see this question and give us some input!
