Milk has been used in skin care for centuries and it’s been added to soaps (especially natural soaps) for just as long. Soaps enriched with milk are creamier and gentler than those made without. It’s the naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, oils and lactic acid found in milk that add the moisturising and conditioning properties to the soap.


What are the Benefits of Camel Milk?


Cleopatra’s legendary seductive and youthful looks are claimed to be the result of her luxurious milk baths. Whether or not Cleopatra bathed in camel milk is debatable; camel milk has long been known as the “white gold” of the desert.

Camel milk is one of the most nutrient-dense of all milk. It is rich in alpha hydroxyl acids which help to dissolve the proteins that hold together dead skin cells. They don’t only dissolve these proteins but actually promote healthy cell regeneration and softening of the skin while keeping it both supple and smooth, helping to reduce fine lines.

Camel milk also has a high vitamin and mineral content, especially rich in vitamin C (3x more than cow’s milk) which is important for tissue repair, as well as 10x the amount of iron (compared to cow’s milk) and vitamin A, B2 and D, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, sodium and zinc. Additionally, camel milk naturally contains protective proteins with anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
