Camel Milk Soap

Pippa brought this back as a laugh when she passed through Dubai recently. Rose geranium (my favorite Floris bath soap scent!). It is a soap, but an olive oil soap, so the scent might be the best part, although it does have some beeswax in it too, so it may not be as thin and useless as most olive oil soaps.

are you planning on giving it a whirl given the olive oil ingredient?

I spent an hour on the treadmill and afterwards I really needed to use some soap. So I did use the camel milk soap and it wasn't horrible. A bit more drying than I like for washing hair, but fine everywhere else. Lovely scent.

It would be easy to use olive oil as the fat in a home made soap, and I feel a slight temptation as I never have used it in the past. On the other hand, I have tried many commercial olive oil soaps and not one of them ought to be allowed anywhere near a shave. Possibly mixed with other fats it might be worth the effort, but I have a few kilos of my own recipe to use up first.

A South African woman? I don't see how it affects the soap and its functionality. The soap's lather has the same feel as any other olive oil soap I have used - there is a marked slipperiness even when there is little foamy lather. I don't know how to describe that, but anyone who has used an olive oil soap will understand. I like the scent, and I find it works quite nicely as a bath soap. It is not a shaving soap, and nor is any other olive oil soap (unless you have joined the cult of he was not to be named).

never mind me....it doesnt affect anything at all....as an ex I just find it slightly amusing. On the soap, Ive tried to use dr bonners because of the message behind it and some of the scents, but it leaves my skin feeling slimy enough not to ever try oil soaps again

I find that any soap with a lot of olive oil is unduly difficult to lather but it has positive sides too. The skincare is excellent.

Strangely, I am enjoying this soap far more than I expected - lovely scent and the slippery Castile soap lather is tolerable.

If I was still using bar soaps in the shower, I'd be placing my order already! I'm going to make a note of this just in case I find myself buying bar soap again.

This thread made me read online about camel milk, including a Wikipedia article that discusses camel dairies, apparently a growing industry. I even found a site offering "free" camel milk (just shipping and handling charged). No, thank you...

I wonder what the "sell by" date would be on a quart of mail order camel milk. :D
