Devonian GREEMU: The Green, Cruelty Free Alternative to Emu Oil Review

GREEMU Oil and Certificate of Analysis.

I had the privilege of trying the Devonian GREEMU Distributed By Koru Naturals for this review to use in conjunction with my own beauty regimen. This is a Schoolhouse Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

Devonian is a fairly new company to the natural health and beauty world. Their science research based approach has brought one product, GREEMU, so far to their ever expanding line of plant based beauty products. Their primary focus is to replace animal products with ingredients derived from plants.

Koru Naturals is a company that brings natural bath and beauty products from New Zealand to the United States. These natural beauty products have ingredients like: Argan Oil, Emu Oil, Blue Tansy Oil, Manuka Oil, Manuka Honey, lanolin, Rotorua Mud, Rosehip Oil, Australian Sandalwood, Sheep Placenta, Bee Venom, French Clays, Shea Butter, Tea Tree Oil, and New Zealand Flowers. They have bath, beauty, candles, diffusers, and honey products. Koru Naturals is also a distributor of Devonian GREEMU.

Emu oil is extracted from the fat tissues of the Emu, an Australian flightless bird, during processing. Emu oil was prized for a hair and skin treatment for hundreds of years by Australian Aborigines and is one of the most popular oils used in the beauty industry. It has vitamins, minerals, and the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and 6. Since it is made from animal products; however, some people would rather use something more humane for their beauty regime.


GREEMU is a green alternative made entirely of a combination of plant oils and butters that can be a humane replacement for Emu Oil. It was created by Devonian after two years of research and simulates the look, feel, color, consistency and lipid composition of Grade A emu oil. GREEMU is made up of five ingredients: Macadamia Oil, Palm Oil Certified Organic, Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Rice Bran Oil. It, like its animal counterpart, protects and nourishes skin and hair from the elements. It improves appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also reduces dry hair and split ends.

How I Used This and My Thoughts:

I was excited to get GREEMU to try out because I had heard great things about the Emu Oil and this was a healthy substitute that was cruelty free. I am not vegan or vegetarian but using beauty products that are cruelty free does matter to me. I also love to use products that are 100% natural.

The directions for using GREEMU are simple and can be added to an everyday beauty regime easily. All you need is a couple drops at a time. I rubbed it gently in a circular motion onto my face and hands. Then I used a couple more drops and applied it from root to tip in my hair massaging my scalp as well with the oil.

So, what is the consistency, look, and texture of GREEMU? It is an opaque, slightly cream colored blend of oils. The beauty oil absorbs into the skin without any icky oily residue left behind. It also doesn't have a noticeable scent. It is smooth and liquidy.

My skin loved the stuff, soaked it up, and felt immeasurably softer to the touch after I applied it. I did read the label and it says to not use it if you are allergic to plant oils. I am somewhat sensitive to things and GREEMU did not break me out in any way. I even tried it on my face and it was very gentle. I love this plant based oil, especially for my hands as they are getting calloused and worn from all the gardening I have been doing. GREEMU makes my hands less rough. I did not have any problems with it. I loved that it seemed to make my flyaway hair more manageable and my split ends disappear. A little goes a long way for hair, though. Don't overdo it or your hair will just look greasy. With just a small drop of the oil my hair seemed shinier and healthier looking.

A 4 ounce bottle of GREEMU is $10.80 which is cheaper than the same size bottle of Emu Oil (over $18). You can get a 20% off discount if you enter the GN395Z10 coupon code upon purchase of GREEMU through Koru Naturals by May 31st, 2016.
