From Cleopatra bathing in it to Bedouin cultures harnessing its medicinal powers, camel milk has been around for thousands of years and recently grew in popularity around the world. As science examines the matter further, it comes to affirm what is common knowledge in the Bedouin tradition: camel milk has extraordinary potential for medical application, and if utilized correctly, for the wellness-beauty industry as well. As the Bedouin story tells, the realization of its powers came out of necessity, when Bedouin mothers decided to use camel milk for their sick babies suffering from long and tiring desert journeys. The results were healthier, stronger and more energetic children.
- Due to its unique composition, camel milk is well tolerated by people who suffer from food allergies and dairy sensitivities. The absence of regular milk proteins eliminates lactose intolerance issues, offering a great alternative to cow’s milk that’s rich in vitamin c and iron.
- In scientific research, the milk is an intriguing topic that holds promise for diabetes and autoimmune patients, treating autism and even cancer. As the Journal of Cancer Science & Treatment states: “Camel’s milk and urine are among such natural products enriched with molecules that are safe to humans and endowed with profound anti-cancer properties”
- One of the more dominant applications for camel milk is its use for producing health and cosmetic products that rejuvenate the skin, attacking significant problems such as acne and severe skin conditions like psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, orticaria and more. The lactic acid inside the milk helps the skin recover from skin marks, stretch marks, various rashes and mosquito bites.
Inside the city of Rahat, a unique business was born when a Bedouin family realized the opportunity of using camel milk to produce potent health and cosmetic products. The company “Camel Beauty” has a line of products for skin rejuvenation and improvement offering creams and soaps made of 20% active ingredient, providing the highest concentration possible and approved by the Israeli health department. The company has established itself in the market and brings the cosmetic world a fresh take on health and wellness.

Leading his culture in the direction of progress, he invites people to come to Rahat and experience a community living in harmony and demonstrating the possibilities of the land.
