skin treatment which enables the emollients to penetrate the skin's
surface and have greater impact without greasy residue, a boon for
the cosmetics industry. Similarly, it is more active than water based
creams which do not penetrate the skin barrier.

acid in emu oil has anti-inflammatory properties that will substantially
reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoporosis).
Testing - Karen Davis (medical technologist and
biochemist) researched for Outback Emuzing Ranch in British Columbia
in Canada, 1995 from internet http://www.ark.com/emuzing/emuoil.html
Emu oil has
been tested for the following bacteria and found no growth nor indeed
presence in the fat; anaerobic bacteria, fungus, salmonella, shigella,
staphylococcus, streptococcus, E coli.
It can be concludede
that emu oil does not promote the growth of bacteria.
