Reasons and substantiation of the above claims.

Crocodile oil has the same composition as human skin oil. It only differs with regard to the percentages of the ingredients present. Crocodile oil contains saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. The unsaturated or good fatty acids namely omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 oils are responsible for the above mentioned effects. Omega 6 oils are very efficient for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in children. Crocodile oil contains about 20% omega 6 oil. Research also proved that omega 9 oil promotes fast wound closure and that a mixture of omega 6 and 9 oils are antibacterial and anti-fungal and will thus be excellent for the treatment of septic wounds. It regulates cell membrane function and modulates trans-epidermal water loss. It helps with the formation of compounds that counteracts inflammation reactions of the skin. It improves movement through and integrity of the cell membrane and also improves integrity of the membranes. It regulates water loss of the skin and protects the skin against injury and infection (antibacterial). Japanese researchers showed that omega 3 and 6 oils counteract UV induced hyper-pigmentation of the skin. They also mentioned in their introduction that it was proven previously that omega 6 oil counteract hyper-pigmentation, Crocodile oil also contains omega 7 oil (palmitoleic acid), which is similar to the contents of sebum and also has antibacterial properties. Chinese researchers found that cream containing oil very high in omega 7 counteract spots, skin discolorations and hyper-pigmentation. They found that large pigmented spots of postmenopausal women disappeared completely.

From this literature derived data it is clear that crocodile oil which is rich in omega 6, 7 and 9 oils can be used for the treatment or alleviation of the above mentioned ailments.

Crocodile meat has a delicate flavour and its taste can often be covered by the use of strong marinades.

 

    • Crocodile meat is low in fat and high in protein.
    • The choicest cuts of meat are the back-strap and tail fillet.
