Our Story of Camel Milk
Camel Milk is one of our unique and signature ingredients. We chose to base our soaps and creams around this ingredient because its benefits in skincare have been known for thousands of years
Camel milk is rich in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and the superstar ingredient, Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHA. The combination of these is extremely beneficial to the skin providing moisturising, soothing, plumping, and lightening qualities. When Camel Milk is combined with other ingredients such as Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Beeswax and essential oils, these benefits are further enriched and enhanced.
What about the camels?
Camels are an important part of Emirati culture that dates back to its roots. In the past, camels were said to be God’s gifts to the Bedouin, as these animals often made life in the desert possible, providing everything from transportation to clothes, nutrition and skincare.
All our camel milk is sourced from a local UAE dairy that has over 1,800 camels. This dairy farm is fully ISO 22000:2018 certified and operates to a set of core values similar to The Camel Soap Factory. More importantly, the camels there are not treated as livestock but are positively pampered and treated as revered creatures.
Did you know
that in the UAE there are annual festivals around all-things camel related – and even a competition to crown The Most Beautiful Camel of the Year
Given that the UAE is the natural desert habitat of the camel, it means they can freely roam outside all year round and don’t need to be penned except at milking time.
