Camel Milk is Superior to Goat Milk
One of the biggest misunderstandings selling camel milk skincare products is that they are the same as goat milk skincare products and compete too much in the market.
How wrong of an assumption this is. There are major differences between goat milk and camel milk. Camel Milk is a superior product for skincare.
Keep in mind as you read that your skin absorbs everything it comes in contact with which is why it is so important to know what is in your cosmetics...
Both products contain lactose as they are made from milk but that is where the similarities stop.
Camel milk is very high in iron. In fact, it is about 10x’s higher in iron than cow’s milk and this makes it excellent for use in cosmetics because it retains your skins natural luster and youthful appearance. When your skin lacks iron, it looks pale and dull.
Camel milk has low cross reactivity to cow’s milk since it has a completely different protein structure whereas goat milk does not, although it is similar to our human milk structure.
What does this mean?
Cross reactivity is where the body thinks the two milks are one and the same so if someone is allergic to cow milk they still have about a 25% chance of having an allergic reaction to goat milk.
Camel milk has about a 3% chance of cross reactivity so for those of you who’ve always wanted to try a milk lotion but have allergies to cows milk your best bet is to try camel milk lotion to enjoy its moisturizing benefits without a reaction. Of course, there are no guarantees but your chances are greater that it will work for you.
Lastly, camel milk has been shown in studies to strengthen cellular immune response making it great for autoimmune disorders and it contains lactoferrin which has antimicrobial activity that helps kill microorganisms on the skin. Goat milk has no such thing.
The next time someone says that goat milk lotion and camel milk lotion do the same thing for your skin, you say, “Not so much, and let me tell you why...”
