Moisturizing and cosmetic properties of emu oil: A pilot double blind study “In 1994, Dr. Alexander Zemstov conducted a "double blind" study on the properties of Emu Oil and he concluded the following properties of Emu oil: highly penetrating, emulsifier, bacteriostatic, low irritation potential, and non-comedogenic.”
· Stimulates skin immune system
Omega 3 and Your Immune System Because of the Omega 3 content in emu oil, it is said to boost the immune system in the skin. Here is an article that talks specifically about Omega 3 fatty acids with regard to immunity.
· Promotes faster healing due to rapid absorption

Further information regarding these properties can be found in this article that focuses on hair loss but actually elaborates on other benefits and qualities of emu oil, citing specific scientific research.
