Ilona JosikaI’m Ilona Josika, founder of Ilorion camel milk beauty products. My passion for beauty grew as a child from watching my beautiful aunt applying her make up. She had an amazing knowledge of natural beauty tricks, using cold black tea, cucumber, egg whites, honey, vinegar and several other natural beautifiers as part of her beauty regime.

Years later, when I started to use skin care and beauty products myself, I didn’t realize just how many foreign materials go into modern cosmetic products. These days you can read the contents on the label of skin care products and easily find out just what some of those strange sounding ingredients do to you. But you just about need to be a qualified chemist to understand the many additives used in most commercial skin care products. Some are so harmful they can even interfere with your hormones.

How my search for effective natural beauty products led me to camel milk

I’ve always preferred skin care products with minimal additives and no chemicals. As a mature woman I also need a beauty product that not only diminishes the appearance of fine lines and blemishes, but helps eliminate them.

So I thought about the legendary Greek and Egyptian beauties like Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti and wondered what skin care treatments they used. That research was fascinating because Cleopatra even left behind beauty scripts which were found in her crypt hundreds of years later.
Some of the ingredients used we now know were poisonous. For example, lead was included in kohl eyeliner to make it stay in place. Nevertheless, no other culture has been so serious about the concept of beatification and skin care and, although the ancient Egyptians made some mistakes, they were doing a lot of things right too.

The one thing these timeless beauties relied on was bathing in camel milk and treating their skin with camel milk poultices. That gave me the idea of sourcing and using organic camel milk to create Ilorion skin care cream.

The proven healing properties of camel milk

Today the healing effects of camel milk have been tested, analysed and reported by scientists as follows:

  • Camel milk is rich in nutrients;
  • The alpha-hydroxyl acid present in camel milk helps smooth fine lines on the skin;
  • The antimicrobial properties in camel milk act as a natural cleanser and help heal acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea;
  • Camel milk has anti-tumour properties;
  • High levels of insulin-like proteins in camel milk help reduce the effect of diabetes;
  • The anti-viral properties in camel milk help reduce liver inflammation;
  • Camel milk is rich in immunoglobulin that strengthens the immune system;
  • Camel milk protects our body from oxidative injuries;
  • The lacto-ferrin in camel milk removes free iron from the joints of arthritis sufferers;
  • The antibacterial and antiviral qualities of camel milk are known to destroy mycobacterium tuberculosis.

A natural beauty product that actually works is worth paying for

Seeing the healing goodness in camel milk, I had to ask myself why I’d use any other type of beauty cream on my largest organ, the skin. Using camel milk sourced close to where I live in Queensland, Australia and creating Ilorion camel milk beauty cream was a natural conclusion.

Yet camel milk, with all its benefits, is also expensive because of its scarcity. The yield of milk from one female camel is only five or six litres, as long as she has her baby with her. But you can’t put a price on health and wellbeing.

Those ancient beauties knew they were onto a good thing when they used and bathed in camel milk. Thanks to modern science and dermatologists we now know exactly why Camel Milk is so beneficial. That’s why camel milk is as highly prized and precious in our modern world as it was in ancient Egypt. That’s why, although Ilorion Cream may cost a bit more than cheap skin care products, it’s worth paying for.

I know you’ll love the results of using camel milk cream and the sense of wellbeing that comes from using an all-natural product. I hope you enjoy using Ilorion skin care products as much as I do.
