I went to my health food store today and found both. I was suprised by the price of the Emu oil. I purchased a small bottle of each.

I'm not sure. I believe the Jojoba Oil's brand was something like "Now." I will check and and then post.

Cool...Thanx Peter. Thus far I've only been able to find one brand of emu oil, and several other brands of Jojoba. I wonder what the differences between them would be if they were all 100% pure. :think:

There's this chart here:

And it gives Jojoba a rating of 2. But I know of many who use it and it's totally cool.

Plus, you can't always trust these charts, because they don't take into account the nature and origin of the product. For example, many say that coconut oil is very comedogenic, but not in it's extra-virgin form. I slew CO all over my face, and it feels amazing in the morning!
