Camel milk is one of 2020’s trending ingredients for skincare.
Camel milk contains a balanced blend of skin-repairing nutrients like proteins, natural alpha-hydroxy acids, and beauty vitamins like C & D. Topically, it is said to help to moisturize, nourish, and restore sensitive skin. There are claims that it even reduces unpleasant sunspots and acne marks. Camel milk, not unlike other types of milk, is loaded with lactic acid, an AHA that can slough away dead skin cells. It can also help increase the skin’s production of ceramides, assisting with moisture retention and a brighter, more even skin tone. There are also unverified claims of camel milk assisting with collagen production and protecting the skin from free radicals and other forms of oxidative stress.
We recently came across Elina Organic’s Sahara Soufflé, an organic, cruelty-free & handmade hydrating face mask that features real camel milk. It is massaged over wet skin and left on for about 10 minutes. It feels nice and moisturizing, but we’ll have to wait to report on the long-term effects, if any.
