Why Camel Wool?
For hundreds of years camel wool products have been used in Middle East, parts of Asia and Africa for protection, support and therapeutic purposes. Recent scientific studies, (some of which can be found in the Research section of our website www.camelcompany.ca )have shown the amazing benefits of camel
wool products. Camel wool is natural, healthy and eco-friendly. Wool fibres are not straight but are bent forming crimps. The mechanical action of wool fibres on the skin has a micro-massaging effect which affects the blood supply to this organ. The springiness, resiliency, elasticity, thermal insulation properties and low thermal conductivity make camel wool very favorable for therapeutic use. Camel wool products are breathable so exchanging air of the body part with its surroundings. Our products also have thermostatic properties which protect and insulate in cold conditions as well as keep cool in warm temperatures. In the textile industry camel wool is considered to be a luxury fibre and for many years camel wool has been used in the manufacturing of high quality clothing, blankets, quilts etc
Why Camel Milk Soaps and Creams?
For thousands of years, the Bedouin have known of the healing powers of camel milk. Recent scientific research in Europe and the Middle East have proven its medicinal properties and confirmed its healing benefits(see Research section of our website). Camel milk has also been found to have wonderful cosmetic benefits. Camel milk contains vital immune properties and is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids for softening the skin, keeping it supple, smooth and preventing wrinkles.
Camel milk is saturated with proteins; it is rich in Vitamin C (3 times more than cow's milk) which is important in tissue repair, Vitamin A, B1, B2, B12 and Iron. Natural anti-bacterial agents help protect and maintain healthy skin. Our Camel Heal unique soap range not only keeps your skin beautiful but also can be used to treat skin disorders such as Acne, Psoriasis and Eczema.
Each bar of our Camel Milk Soap contains a minimum of 25% Camel milk and use only the finest olive oil and pure essential oils. The soaps contain : No sulphates, No parabens, No artificial colours, No artificial fragrances and No petrochemicals.
Why Camel Wool Quilts and Blankets?
Our 100% camel wool quilts/blankets are healthy, comfortable, thermo-regulating and hypo-allergenic. Camel wool maintains constant humidity: It absorbs moisture when humidity is high and releases it when the air is dry. This promotes a good night’s sleep, particularly for restless kids and babies. A deep, comfortable night’s sleep is vital for our physical and mental well-being.
How Do I Take Care of My Camel Heal Wool Product?
Hand wash with mild detergent and lay flat to dry
Are The Camels Killed Or Hurt In Obtaining The Wool?
No. Camel hair is collected from the two-humped Bactrian camel naturally, during moulting season where the hair falls off from the body of the camel. The hair is then collected and put through a cleansing process, to make it suitable to be spun into yarn.
What Do The Experts Say?
(a) Acupuncturist and Ayurvedic physicians recommend that you wear a kidney warmer such as the Camel Heal waist band during cold weather to enhance the immune system.
(b) Dr Chauncy Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at the world-renowed Palm Beach Cardiosvascular Clinic who also lectures nationally and internationally on preventive cardiology, cardiological healthcare of the elderly and healing says “…most people think that arthritis just causes pain and stiffness in the joints, in fact the inflammation that comes with arthritis…is a major contributor to heart disease.
(c) A complete study of effects of wool in physiotherapy was done(‘Physical Therapy Perspective in the 21st century’ by Krzysztof Gieremek and Wojciech Ciesla), and it is summed up by the following:
“… the presented thermal, mechanical and ergonomic advantages of wool and specialist wool fabrics provide a large body of evidence to confirm that properties of wool products facilitate treatment of numerous diseases and can thus be successfully used for medical care and rehabilitations.”
“…doctors and physiotherapist’s recommendations regarding the use of body warmers should be considered highly advisable from a medical point of view.”
