OK, so over at the Ice Elements forum I read that the IE folks have sourced a "cruelty-free" emu oil that is obtained from the emu, painlessly, while the bird is still alive. I was under the impression that Emu oil was ground/melted Emu fat, so to my way of thinking, it would have to come from a dead emu, which is why as a vegetarian I've always avoided emu oil like the plague. So, can anyone tell me what they could possibly mean at IE by "cruelty-free emu oil"???

27, sensitive/reactive/acne prone skin, dark brown hair, blue eyes, possibly the palest woman alive...

I was SOOO glad to see this post and the concern from most of you about the killing of these birds.

I have NICELY made a few comments here and there on various posts asking the posters to try jojoba oil (which Ive read is actually better anyway) instead of emu oil and I ALWAYS get ignored.

It has frustrated me greatly - I understand many people just do not care about the torture and death we place on animals solely due to our selfishness. Meat is one thing - Ive stopped eating it - but I know I cant expect others too. And I do understand even leather and its use when it is a byproduct if the animal is killed for one thing - better that the body is used for various things....

But I think many people have it in their mindsets that animals are ours to do with as we please. Within the last 10 years Ive come to believe that is JUST not true - all animals have intelligence and even emotions. And to know they suffer greatly when we experiment, mistreat, torture and kill them for our own needs saddens me greatly. Especially when we continue to use animals for our clothes (Im talking fur - when animals are greatly tortured and for one "purpose" only which lets face it isnt even a necessity) and skin care - just so we can look "better" (?????) Its just very wrong to me.

Thanks so much to those who care too.
