Michael sometimes you like your Emu oil and sometimes you don't believe anything helps the skin.
But to quote you from 2011
"We "discovered" a copper polypeptide product that has real science behind it for wound-healing (lots of information on the web). These are commonly used after hair transplant. The one we are using is "iS:" "innovative skin care" product "super serum." This has the right copper peptide formula, the right vitamin-C and safe skin lighteners. It's working great.
I'm not a big fan of applying skin lotions unless needed. This one is fulfilling my greatest expectations. My patient's skin will be perfect. But we need to use it throughout the entire procedure. Thank you Dr.C! "
I guess some lotions and potions do still work on skin or this week nothing helps?
P.S. tee tree oil or moisturizing skin will not super speed healing process on cellular level, but as you state yourself, "lubricating" factor does assist in shedding and minimizing the scabs. Most people just don't want to walk around with visible scabs for weeks, so Emu oil can help.
