Egyptian Magic is a natural beauty product that has been around since 1991. Before natural beauty became mainstream, this product gained a cult like following with celebrities and natural therapists alike. Those kinds of things don't usually make much of an impact here, but what's impressive though is the sheer volume of wealthy (and yes famous) people who use it when they could afford to spend $400 on a tub of whatever the latest miracle is. What impresses me is that the same cream is loved by dermatologists and naturopaths the world over. It has been loved since 1991 and it's still loved in 2024, over 30 years since it was formulated. AND it's still made with the same 6 ingredients it was from the start.

So, what is Egyptian Magic?

It's a tub of oil based moisturising cream that has multiple uses. It is made up of 6 x 100% pure, natural ingredients.

  1. Olive Oil
  2. Beeswax
  3. Honey
  4. Bee Pollen
  5. Royal Jelly
  6. Propolis Extract

Models use it to get an extra glow on the runway. When you first apply, it is an oily application. When you first apply it to your skin, it's a thin white cream. As you rub it in, it melts in your hands and turns in to a clear oil. After 10-15 minutes, it will sink in and not be noticeable, but you will feel a little oily for several minutes after you use it, so while it's great to rub on your hands as you go to bed, doing it at work when you're about to start typing again isn't a good idea.

Who can use Egyptian Magic?

It's safe for everyone. Whether it's men, women, babies, pregnant women or kids, there's nothing that isn't natural and there are no added fragrances, so it's a unisex smell. Those with allergies to bee pollen or honey should proceed with caution to ensure they don't ingest it.

Is Egyptian Magic vegan?

No it's not. It's vegetarian, but not vegan. Egyptian Magic heavily features honey, beeswax, propolis, bee pollen and royal jelly. 5 of the 6 ingredients in the formula come from bees.

Can I use Egyptian Magic on acne prone skin?

This is a very oily balm. There is mixed information available about whether oil-free or oil-based products are more suitable for acne prone skin. One belief is that using oil-based products stops your skin from producing the oils that can be the cause of breakouts.

Egyptian Magic is not a medicated or listed skin care product for the treatment of acne but there are a lot of customer testimonials on the official EM socials talking about how effective it is on acne prone skin.

The comedogenic score of any product is the number that refers to whether the ingredient or product is likely to cause acne. While the product as a whole has not been officially tested, the scale of whether somethign is non-comedogenic falls between 0 and 5. Olive oil scores a 2. Beeswax between 0-2 and the rest of the ingredients are 0.

Where is Egyptian Magic made?

Egyptian Magic is made by hand in the USA. It will always remain a hands on, small batch business to maintain the quality and integrity of the product and the quality of the raw ingredients used.
