How Does EmuaidMAX Differ From Emuaid?

by Carly Neubert, BA, NC on May 22, 2024

If you’ve been around for a while, you may have seen a few of our blog posts highlighting Emuaid. In 2017 we gave you “What You Need To Know About Emuaid”, a rundown of the benefits of Emuaid and EmuaidMAX. Then in 2020, we dug a little deeper and focused on “Skin Conditions & Emuaid”. So, why another blog? Well, this time around, we’ll be highlighting the benefits of EmuaidMAX First Aid Ointment and how it differs from Emuaid’s regular strength formula. This maximum-strength cream packs high concentrations of healing ingredients to bring you high-quality relief. The uses for EmuaidMAX seem endless! Stick around to find out the ‘why’ behind EmuaidMAX and read what Healthy Habits Living customers are saying in their reviews about this fantastic remedy!

The Impressive Highlight Reel of EmuaidMAX 

EmuaidMax offers “topical symptomatic relief for resistant skin conditions: Severe Boils, Hemorrhoids, Eczema, Cold Sores, Fungal Infections, Poison Ivy, Psoriasis, Oak & Sumac and other itchy, painful conditions.” It’s understandable if you feel a bit skeptical that one cream can offer relief for such an extensive list of conditions. During a walk through of your local drugstore, you’re likely to see aisle upon aisle of creams specializing in one condition or another; and as a result you end up with a cart full of ‘maybes’ in hopes of mitigating whatever you’re experiencing, perhaps not even knowing what exactly your condition is. What makes EmuaidMAX bold enough to list such a wide variety of conditions? Chronic skin issues can share symptoms such as pain, infection, itching, swelling, dryness and redness. If these don’t heal properly, the risk of infection increases. Targeting just one condition or one symptom can be fruitless, and in turn, outbreaks can be caused by uncontrollable scratching & subsequent worsening of the inflammation. This can often lead to the skin cream roulette, trying to get ahead of the next flare-up or symptom. The properties of EMUAIDMAX are applicable across a wide range of symptoms and can therefore provide relief for a wide range of conditions. The ingredients are both simple and powerful, allowing for immense versatility. 

Unique Ingredients

EmuaidMAX First Aid Ointment is Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fungal, Non-Steroidal & Chemical-Free. This means you don’t have to worry about harmful side effects. In fact, there are no contraindications or side effects reported at all! Remarked as having “nature’s most effective anti-bacterial & anti-fungal ingredients”, most users report noticing a difference and/or visible results in as little as 24 hours. EmuaidMAX quickly kills bacteria and fungus and soothes irritation, making it an all-in-one salve. EmuaidMAX works with your body’s own regenerative mechanisms to provide relief and lasting healing. The stars of EmuaidMAX’s ingredients include: Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree), Argentum Metallicum (Colloidal Silver), and Emu Oil. Emuaid's powerful trio deeply penetrates the skin, thanks to EMUTANEOUS, a cutting-edge transdermal technology engineered to enhance the absorption of its beneficial ingredients beneath the surface.

Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree)

Tea tree oil has strengths as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory oil. Its antimicrobial nature has been seen to kill numerous microorganisms. Specific benefits have been noticed in treating acne. Tea tree has been able to match the strength of benzoyl peroxide (commonly found in acne creams), but does not have the harsh side effects. Contemporary data shows that the “broad-spectrum activity of [Tea Tree Oil] includes antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiprotozoal activities”. This means that beyond treating the symptoms, tea tree oil is able to kill off the problematic bacteria, fungus, etc.

Argentum Metallicum (Colloidal Silver)

The active ingredient in EmuaidMAX First Aid Ointment is Argentum Metallicum, also known as – Colloidal Silver. It is antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral which adds to the power of Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil), and is often seen as an alternative to prescription antibiotics. Unlike these antibiotics, Colloidal Silver doesn’t create resistance or immunity to the organisms that are killed/affected by its use. This is key for those stubborn skin conditions that don’t seem to want to quit.  Colloidal silver has been used as an antiseptic as far back as Hippocrates in 400 BC.  Before the 1940s, colloidal silver was commonly prescribed for topical and internal infections.  With the advent of penicillin and other antibiotics, colloidal silver was soon replaced.  It is still used in breathing tubes, medical bandages, and burn treatment.  

Emu Oil 

Beyond its individual benefits, emu oil acts as a vehicle – carrying the benefits of colloidal silver and tea tree directly to the cells. This allows those healing properties and energies to be used at a level that will allow for healing rather than just sitting on top of the skin. Emu oil’s structure as an unsaturated fatty acid is very similar to human skin which allows the oil to be absorbed and utilized quickly allowing it to be much more effective. The oil acts as a sort of “food” source to nourish damaged skin cells. This is another benefit of EmuaidMAX: this first aid ointment will not leave your skin dry as it heals, you will be able to feel and see a healthy difference while the product goes to work on the skin cells. 

What’s the MAX difference?

Simply put, “EmuaidMAX First Aid Ointment provides Maximum Strength rapid relief for people suffering from the most resistant difficult-to-treat skin conditions.” EmuaidMAX was created to deliver relief from the first use, working faster and more intensively than regular-strength Emuaid. The ingredients are high quality, natural, medical grade ingredients. The concentrations of which are the highest made available without a prescription. EmuaidMAX is there to take on the most stubborn of skin problems. Even with its potency, EmuaidMAX is FDA-registered and safe enough to use on the entire family, even infants!

- Mary T. 

“I have used Emuaid on skin surgery on 2 different episodes. It has a wonderful 'salve' effect and calms down either soreness or itching. It is a godsend. It beats more powerful items which inflame the skin like Lidocaine. Very glad I found it!”

- Joan G.“My husband is the one who used this for hydroadenitis supprative. The lesion had been large, puffy and very painful. With the first use, he said the pain was gone. Within a few hours the puffiness was decreased. The lesion has for all intents and purposes dried up. This is an exceptional product that did what was said it would do. He is extremely pleased and very happy to find something that helps when these lesions come, as they frequently do. Thank you!!!!”

- Dr Sharri Singer, DD

“I have had a problem with atopic dermatitis on my left knee since having knee replacement surgery several years ago. The stitches did not dissolve, and caused inflammation, swelling, and itching. My dermatologist prescribed several cortisteroid creams and ointments. They helped some, but the problem persisted. I tried some over the counter ointments, with a little more success, but it still didn't go away I found EmuaidMAX after a search online and decided to give it a try. My skin began to improve slowly. With continued use for about 3 months, my knee is almost healed. I am so happy I found this product.”

- Jacquelyn S. 

“I will not bother with any other ointment for poison ivy ever again! It is great for all skin conditions. Do not hesitate to spend the money. I have wasted a lot of money on products that do not work. This WORKS!”

- Francie Z.

“This is absolutely the most amazing product! My husband has many medical issues but toe fungus is the smallest but most stubborn! We have tried for years to control it without any luck. Within 3 days applying 3 times a day. I was able to cut away at least 1/2 of his nail!!!! I worked in pharmacy for 20 years and I know that nothing really works on nail fungus. But this product goes thru the nail bed!!! And we were able to cut away that awful thick ugly nail! Underneath was some beautiful pink skin. I bought a small jar to start because I had convinced myself it would not work. But, needless to say I have already purchased a large jar! We will never be without this product.”

- Jo R.
