Have you guys heard of camel’s milk? Now, have you heard of using camel’s milk in your daily skin routine? I thought such luxuries were just for sheikhs of the Middle East, but because of Skinue, us “normal” folk are able to get a taste of such a foreign delicacy. Skinue was founded by Penelope Shihab who has a background in medical biotechnology. She is the CEO and founder of the only biotechnology firm in the Middle East and North African region. When I first read this, she already had my female alarm bells ringing. Girl power to the max!
The key ingredient in the Skinue skincare is camel’s milk or camel whey which is not near the bottom of the ingredient list, but at the top of it! The camel’s milk comes from the Royal Camels in Dubai and are maintained by the Royal Family of the United Arab Emirates (they look absolutely adorable!) and is also used in drinks, chocolates and cheeses! What makes camel’s milk so special is that the whey proteins it contains are actually antibacterial as well as being hydrating. As you can guess, Skinue products are paraben-free and designed for all ages and skin types.
