Cosmeceuticals are the combination of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and include products such as anti-dandruff shampoos, moisturizers, acne creams, anti-aging creams and more.
Camel milk is a perfect component for these products. The immunoglobulins in camel milk have powerful antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. This makes the milk an excellent choice for developing creams and lotions for the treatment of acne and psoriasis. The therapeutic properties of the antibodies in the milk are able to reduce inflammation as well as repair scar tissue from acne. It reduces “on site” inflammation to acne pimples and restores the skin to a healthy appearance.
The cosmetic advantages from the milk come from the minerals and electrolytes which can slow down the aging process, fight free radical damage to the skin, and stabilize the skin’s RNA and DNA. Because camel milk antibodies act as carrying agents they are able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin for ultimate benefits.
The lactose in the milk acts as a skin conditioner by retaining the moisture. The high level of vitamin C found in camel milk offers antioxidant and tissue repair properties. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen which adds firmness and suppleness to the skin.
Billions of dollars are spent annually on cosmetics. Camel milk is beginning to be recognized worldwide and many pharmaceutical companies are developing new lines of cosmeceuticals based on the amazing properties found not only in camel milk but camel urine as well.
