Why camel fat? Also known as Daroua, camel hump fat is an ancient healing secret that has been all but forgotten by modern man. It was used by the nomadic people of the deserts of the Middle East as a balm for a myriad of skin conditions, as well as joint aches, osteoporosis, and arthritis. The fat is densely rich with , Stearic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid, Beta Carotene (what they make retinol out of), plus vitamins A (also, retinol) E, K, B12, and Biotin. And there's triple the the amount Omega 9 than in coconut oil. To put it plainly, this is a skin's SUPERFOOD.
BUT WAIT... what about the Camels? Hear me out here... I create products that align with my earth-loving, vegan make-up choosing, against-animal cruelty values. This is exactly why I CHOSE Wild Australian Camel Fat. Camels are an invasive species in Australia, having been brought in by the British empire in the 19th century, their populations EXPLODED with no natural predators. Over time, they have wrestled other endemic species out of their habitats with their voracious appetites and large herd sizes. Fast-forward to present day, camels are being culled by the THOUSANDS to control their populations (see link here: https://pestsmart.org.au/toolkits/feral-camels/) . There are some people trying to use what must be harvested, trying to commercialize the control methods so that the camel lives are not wasted for naught and balance can be restored humanely. THIS is where this camel fat comes from. In a world where going green means being vegan or vegetarian, there is a step further in becoming PESTitarian, and using our power of consumption to balance the scales.
