Ethically Run

At DromeDairy Body + Skin we really care about our camels and the nature we live in. That’s why we make sure the farming we do is sustainable, ethical and that our products are 100% recyclable.

Our Mission

Australia has the largest and healthiest wild dromedary population in the world! Yet, the government spends millions to cull these beautiful animals. Our mission is to save Australia’s camels, build up a valuable industry and help people to feel good in their skin – all at the same time.

Happy Camels

Our camels come from Australia’s outback and are tamed and trained on our farm in the Perth Hills. We only use gentle, trust-based training techniques, minimising the stress on the animals and making sure herd structures are maintained.

Unlike in other dairies, the camel calves are not separated from their mums after birth. They stay with their mums, ensuring they get all the milk they need and maintain a strong bond throughout.

How it all Began

 

DromeDairy started with the dream of founder Dr. Max Bergmann to run his own farm. Diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a disease that has left Max almost fully blind, this dream seemed impossible to many, but not to Max. He had already mastered a lot of challenges in his life, competing in the Paralympics twice and completing a PhD in Agricultural Science, now he was ready for the next adventure.

It all began with three young camels from the wild, Elke, Petra and Rita (named after the beloved neighbours of his parents in Germany). Max quickly fell in love with the intelligent, kind and sometimes a bit stubborn nature of his camels and soon expanded his little camel family.

When milking his camel ladies, Max noticed how soft his rough worker’s hands became when the milk got onto his hands. He did some research and quickly realised that camel milk was more effective than any other natural skin care ingredient. This was the start of DromeDairy Body+Skin.

Camel Milk Skin Care – Magic for your Skin?

Max developed his first camel milk lotion, containing only 100% natural ingredients – the effects were amazing! Not only did it absorb immediately, the skin felt soft and moisturized in an instant. Having read about the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, Max went on to try the lotion on his guide dog Forest, who suffered from itchy skin caused by allergies. He noticed an immediate improvement and after a week the red, itchy and inflamed skin was back to normal.

The lotion became a relief for many. Max’s father-in-law who suffers from severe eczema had tried a lot of lotions and cremes before – nothing seemed to work…until he tried the camel milk lotion! The unbearable itchiness was gone, the skin felt soft again and the inflammation settled down further and further.

Max’s son Tim, only 7 months old, often had dry, inflamed skin behind his ears as well as nappy rash. Max’s wife, Ronja, applied the lotion only once – the skin was so much softer, and the nappy rash was gone! After a week of using the lotion once a day, Tim never had to deal with dry skin behind his ears again.

Max told friends and family about the amazing effects of camel milk on skin + body and it seemed like everyone had to deal with some sort of skin problem – dry, itchy or red skin/scalp, acne, eczema…the list went on. Max realised that camel milk could be a great help for a lot more people.

So, he spent the next 18 months researching the best ways to turn camel milk into skin care products, using especially gentle techniques to maintain all the goodness of the milk, while having a long lasting, safe and luxurious product. The result: The DromeDairy Body + Skin Feel Good Collection!
