Camel milk has been treasured for thousands of years for its benefits to hair and skin health and beauty. Cleopatra is renowned for bathing in camel milk. When camel milk is analysed to identify its constituent ingredients, this legendary reputation for skin health and beauty makes absolute sense.

Since Summer Land’s inception, we have discovered some amazing things about camel milk.

All animal milks have an interesting composition profile filled with fatty acids, proteins, vitamins and minerals; however camel milk happens to be the closest in composition and size to human breast milk.[1]

Camel’s Milk Unique Composition Makes Perfect Sense

The unique composition of camel milk makes perfect sense to be a leading skincare ingredient and now is gaining momentum for its use in natural skincare along with its ability to heal and balance the skin, leaving it noticeably radiant, softer and supple.

Camel milk has a unique fatty acid and alpha hydroxyl acid composition.[2] Fatty acids are essentially what keeps you skin radiant and supple and usually have superior moisturising and antioxidant qualities.

Oleic Acid, one of the fatty acids found in camel’s milk in higher concentrations[3] is an Omega 9 non-essential fatty acid, which has known moisturising qualities and potent antioxidant properties that help slow down aging and prevent premature wrinkles and fine lines. Oleic Acid contains compounds that strengthen the integrity of cell membranes and fosters the repair of damaged cells[4], which could play a role in treating skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. It is also anti-inflammatory and boosts the local skin immune system and promotes the production of white blood cells. The antioxidant properties of Oleic Acid help neutralize the action of harmful free radicals and reduce oxidative damage to the skin.

Another unique fatty acid found in camel milk is palmitic acid, which is also one of the most prevalent fatty acids in the human body. As skin ages, palmitic acid levels can drop. Palmitic acid is readily absorbed into the skin cell membranes and in this way, is a potent anti-aging fatty acid. Research has suggested that palmitic acid can assist in cell rejuvenation that helps heal skin[5].

AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) have been used in skincare since the early nineties with new discoveries around what they do and how they behave on skin. We now know so much more about AHAs which happen to be naturally forming in camel’s milk[6]. AHAs improve the skin's texture and assist in normalising skin function through gentle exfoliation. AHAs dissolve the tiny ionic bonds that hold the stratum corneum skin cells together, helping to remove the dead skin that are on the surface. If your skin is looking a little dull or is looking more lined or dryer than normal, this is a good indicator that you have a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. After some gentle exfoliation the skin reflects light and radiance, making it look smoother and more vital.

AHAs are also anti-aging and help to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, which is one of the foundations of the skin’s structure that gives skin its youthful and firm appearance. This production of collagen helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and has a firming action on the skin. AHAs also are used in professional skin treatments and homecare products to reduce hyper-pigmentation, dark patches or spots on the skin and treat acne. AHA’s are very effective when treating most skin conditions as they assist with the skin functioning in a way that is healthy and balanced.

Your skin is a thriving ecosystem reflecting your health and vitality and is home to billions of living organisms. Camel milk is bursting with wonderful constituents that your skin biome loves. It is the perfect superfood for your skin which helps to restore the skin biome and therefore improve the overall texture and appearance of your skin.

  • I have tried camel milk in Oman and am very interested as to where and what products I can obtain here in Adelaide. It truly is amazing and I just cannot understand more people here in Australia do not want to do what you are doing.
    I was down at Robe over Christmas, but the weather was too awful to come and see you.
    My great great uncle Thomas Elder was the person who first bought camels into Australia in the mid eighteen hundreds. He brought them in with their Afghan handlers to help open up Australia’s centre. Regards Sue Russell
