Cleopatra is said to have bathed in camel milk, honey and rose petals. Camel Milk is an remedy dating back to ancient Egypt. For women of that time, it was a luxury used especially for baths in order to keep their skin pure and beautiful. A recipe of Camel Milk, honey and rose petals was all she relied on to give her skin a healthy glow.
The Bedouins and other nomadic tribes also use Camel Milk as a way to protect their skin from the sun as they travel through the desert right up to the present day. They also utilize it as a moisturizer for their hair as well as a traditional remedy for eye infections. Only during the past decade or two have westerners begun to tap this well of ancient knowledge.
More recently, researchers have realized the true scientific benefits of using Camel Milk in creams and moisturizers and are leveraging this insight to help consumers treat their difficult skin problems. Our dermatologists have been working in the Middle East to perfect our new Psoryan Intensive Calming Moisturizer.
Due to the various natural minerals and vitamins, Camel Milk products are having success in many countries around the world including India, Australia, the UK and Pakistan.* In Israel, Camel Milk has been used by dermatologists as an element in their courses of treatment for certain skin conditions like acne.
The ancient Bedouin saying, “water is the soul, milk is the life” may prove to be true due to the miraculous properties of camel milk.** It contains many skincare elements including elastin, vitamin C and lanolin, in addition to having natural antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.
“The natural lactic acid found in milk is a form of alpha-hydroxyl-acid (an ingredient which can be found in some of the most expensive exfoliating products in the world). This type of acid gently dissolves proteins to exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing fresh, younger looking skin underneath”. ***
