Over the last 20 years, our loyal customers have constantly surprised us with new, creative uses of Egyptian Magic. Our 100% natural balm has been used as a face moisturizer, an eye cream, a scar treatment, a hair mask, a baby cream, a shaving balm and anything else you can think of. It also works wonders on eczema, skin irritations and redness, burn and wound relief. When we say multi-purpose, we really mean it!
#1: Amazing moisturizer
People often start using Egyptian Magic to solve a skin problem such as a rash or burn or scar, and then continue using it as a skin moisturizer and as an anti-wrinkle skin care cream. We find that using it twice a day does wonders for creating soft, smooth skin.
Testimonial: “This product is a serious miracle worker. I use it almost every single day. After cleansing my face at night, I slather it all over my face and neck. By the time I wake up in the morning, my skin is happily moisturized (no matter how dry it was the night before).” – Lauren Conrad in “Ask Lauren: How do I fix dry skin?”
#2: Healing Burns
Egyptian Magic has been used to take away sting or burning sensation after minor burns including sunburn.
Testimonial: “Magic or not I have been using it on a burn I received while at work with the flat iron ( those things are hot!!). It’s almost completely healed and I’m pretty sure I won’t have a scar.” – Blogger Blush and Beyond in “A cult status beauty product”
#3: Treating Cuts and Scrapes
Our loyal fans keep an extra jar of Egyptian Magic in their first aid kit exclusively as a treatment for cuts and scrapes.
Testimonial: “My brother was diagnosed with cancer of the neck in August 2009 (…) he is now cancer free, but he has been dealing with the tumor/wound left behind. Meanwhile, he had been applying Egyptian Magic before, during and after the radiation treatments. Suffice it to say that the wound has improved dramatically and amazingly. Even his wound care specialist physician is amazed at the speed of his recovery. The difference has been the use of Egyptian Magic.” – Martin H. Columbia, SC
#4: Fading scars
Many of our customers have commented on Egyptian Magic’s “magical” ability to heal scars. Although we don’t recommend it for older scars, the cream can indeed work wonders to heal relatively recent scars and skin discolorations. Egyptian Magic is popular among many plastic surgeons, who recommend it to their patients for accelerating the healing of plastic surgery scars.
Testimonial: “Scars from insect bites and accidents and generally drier skin than usual, the cream has helped to improve the overall situation a lot!” – Blogger Rebecca Saw
#5: Eczema & Psoriasis Relief
We find that about one-third of our customers discover Egyptian Magic after looking for natural alternatives to commercial moisturizing creams as a treatment for eczema and psoriasis. Though different in nature, both of these conditions can often be treated by the twice-daily application of a moisturizing cream, according to several authorities. All-natural Egyptian Magic is an ideal choice.
Testimonial: “I am a pediatrician in private practice in New York City and Kauai. One of my patients brought in her child with a history of eczema (…) This child’s skin, weeks after using your product revealed none of its former patchy dryness or generalized “leatheriness.”” – Mark Nesselson, M.D. Pediatrician
“One day, when my eczema was getting really bad…I caved and thought, “Just get it…another balm won’t kill ya.” And so I did. It’s really a no nonsense, high quality, super effective balm that does a really job and keeping my eczema calm- in a toxin free way.” – Blogger Eighth and Wild
#6: Hair Conditioner
For many of our clients, one of the most delightful discoveries is how beneficial Egyptian Magic can be as a moisturizing hair conditioner – either on a regular basis or as a conditioning hot pack. Egyptian Magic’s all-natural ingredients will restore luster to your hair, replenish its natural oils, tame frizz and condition split ends. In an article in People Magazine actor Carlos Barnard explains he uses Egyptian Magic for hair care.
Testimonial: “I had a pretty big ‘fro going in high school,” says Carlos Bernard, 40. “My hair goes wild, curly wild.” Now he keeps it in line with hair tamer Egyptian Magic, a gift from his wife, actress Sharisse Baker-Bernard” – Actor Carlos Bernard in an interview from People Magazine
#7: Lip Balm
The natural ingredients will do wonders for your lips and give them new life.
Testimonial: “I have been using it all week as a base for my matte lipstick – it absorbs just enough to allow for good lipstick application but it still provides quite long-lasting moisture. Used as a lip balm, this pot would last into the next millennium!” – Model Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends
#8: After shave
Your skin is sensitive especially after shaving. In many cases you may have scars and/or irritation as a side effect. Use Egyptian Magic as an after-shave for a soothing effect. Egyptian Magic contains no alcohol or chemicals that might cause your skin to dry out.
Testimonial: “My face is easily irritated by shaving and if I have to shave for a few days in a row I end up with very irritated, red skin that’s prone to ingrown hairs. The Egyptian Magic has stopped all of that. (…) The next morning I wake up with perfectly calm, moisturised and glowing skin. Oh and a smear of this will heal a shaving cut really quickly and prevent any scarring if you get a bad one.” – Blog Skin Care for Men
#9: After Sun Lotion
Egyptian Magic is often used by our clients as an after sun lotion. The cream gives a soothing effect and your sunburned skin may embrace the natural ingredients.
Testimonial: “All of your summer activities will be helped by this brilliant concoction. (…) We put it on bug bites to immediately stop itching, on sunburns to soothe, on your lips to protect and moisturize.” – Actress Cameron Diaz in The Body Book
#10: Vaginal Moisturizer and Lubricant
According to many gynecologists, such as Dr. Uzzi Rees of Beverly Hills, CA, Egyptian Magic works well as a natural vaginal moisturizer and lubricant.
#11: Hand and Cuticle cream
Many fans treat their nails by using Egyptian Magic to moisturize and soften rough cuticles. Rub some Egyptian Magic on your hands and cuticles just before going to sleep to find nourished, soft and revived hands in the morning.
Testimonial: “I can’t live without Egyptian Magic. I literally just slather it on my face — it’s genius. I’ve actually been using it to repair my chapped hands after my bleaching incident” – Model Dree Hemingway in an interview with Popsugar.
#12: Makeup remover
Egyptian Magic is also used as a safe all-natural makeup remover. Apply on your eyes, and use a cotton ball to gently wipe your eyes clean. Do the same with the rest of your face. Some of our fans use a wet cloth instead of a cotton ball. The natural oils should break down the oils in your makeup. Not only is your makeup gone, your skin is moisturized and ready for bed!
#13: Eye Cream
Replace your eye cream with Egyptian Magic by dabbing a small quantity around your eyes. Some of our fans swear by it and its moisturizing properties.
Testimonial: “I have been using it as an eye cream for over a month now and have noticed a BIG reduction in my crows feet..thank you Egyptian Magic! You were my last stop before BOTOX!! Woo Hoo!” – Blogger Christie Moeller
#14: Massage Balm
Egyptian Magic’s melting texture is ideal for massages. Warm up the balm between your hands until it transforms into an oil and massage on skin. Just relax, its moisturizing ingredients will soften and nourish your skin.
#15: Tattoo Aftercare
After getting a tattoo, apply Egyptian Magic to the area to help with healing, to reduce scabbing, to soothe itching and redness.
#16: Diaper Rash
Egyptian Magic is safe to use on babies and infants. As a non-irritating and petroleum-free formula, it is found to prevent and heal diaper rash, while moisturizing and soothing the baby’s sensitive skin. However, as with any skin care product, please consult your pediatrician before use and do not apply if your baby may have an allergy to bee products.
#17: During and After Pregnancy
We’ve heard from mothers who use Egyptian Magic for stretch marks and cracked nipples. They apply the balm on breasts, belly and thighs during pregnancy to prevent stretch marks and keep their skin soft and supple.
Testimonial: “Egyptian Magic is gentle enough to use on baby and certainly a miracle on stretching skin, leaving you feeling hydrated all day or night.” – Blogger Hunter and Rose in “Pregnancy Skin & Beauty Survival Guide”
#18: Makeup Primer
Loved by Hollywood celebrities, stylists and makeup artists, Egyptian Magic is often used as a skin primer to give a unique glow and prepare skin for makeup. Many makeup artists rely on it at every Fashion Week to create a dewy and glowing make-up look. They apply the balm on the entire face or to highlight specific features such as cheekbones, eyelids or eyebrows. Some fans have also been using Egyptian Magic to set their eyebrows. You can even mix a liquid illuminator with your Egyptian Magic and use as a highlighter for a light contouring!
Testimonial: “It is absorbed well by my normal-to-dry skin and left a nice glow. This gave me the idea to use it as highlighter to create a soft strobing effect, and yes, it worked well ;)” – Blogger Finds of Beauty
#19: Hydrating Face Mask
If your skin is feeling dry, tight or dull, apply Egyptian Magic as a face mask and let the natural ingredients sink in. Apply a layer of Egyptian Magic on your skin, leave for 30 minutes and remove with a hot cloth. Your skin should wake up feeling much more nourished! Some of our fans have been using the balm as a mask while traveling, during a flight for example as the air-conditioning in the plane has a tendency to dry your skin.
#20: Cracked Heels and Elbows
Egyptian Magic can be applied to any dry area from head to toe! Discover a tip shared with us: before going to bed, rub some Egyptian Magic into heels and put on a pair of socks. You’ll wake up in the morning with nourished and restored feet!
Testimonial: “I literally feel light coming from it and it creates so much softness in my skin it literally felt like an overnight miracle. When I first used it, my elbows were as soft as when I was a teenager.” – Author Michelle Blood
Please remember that we make no medical claims for the product. However, every testimonial we put on the site is unsolicited and unedited.
Unfortunately, there are counterfeit jars of “Egyptian Magic” being sold on Amazon and eBay. We are working with both Amazon and the Chinese authorities to curtail this problem, but for now it is very widespread.
IMPORTANT – only the label of our jar is being copied. These counterfeiters make no effort to actually duplicate our product—you have no idea what is in the jar, as they use the cheapest possible ingredients to create a cream that looks something like Egyptian Magic. The color, smell and texture are all different, and we have seen numerous reports of skin problems and complaints when customers unwittingly applied counterfeit product to their skin or hair. If in doubt, DO NOT PUT IT ON YOUR SKIN! Contact us at email@example.com and we will help you identify whether it is genuine Egyptian Magic.
1.) Shrink-band: ALL legitimate jars of Egyptian Magic either have a shrink seal or are sold in a protective clamshell. Most counterfeit jars also have a shrink seal, but a jar without a shrink seal is a guaranteed problem. If you receive a loose jar that does not have a shrink seal, send it back.
2.) Molded name on the bottom: Beginning in mid-2014, we have been molding the words “Egyptian Magic Skin Cream” on the bottom of our 4-oz jars. This is a good indication that a 4-oz jar is genuine.
The short answer to this is the label. Many people are confused by this because they see minor variations on the label over time and they think it means they are looking at counterfeit jars. However, the counterfeiters duplicate our labels exactly. When we make a change to the label, they make the same change. Since the whole point of a counterfeit is to trick someone, the counterfeiters are extremely careful not to introduce changes (or mistakes) into the label that would make it easy for someone to spot a jar as a fake. As an example here are some specific label changes you might see…
1.) “Egyptian” vs. “Kamitian.” In some countries we were required to change the word “Kamitian” to “Egyptian” in the top line of the jar. We decided to change all the labels, to have a consistent label around the world. However, the counterfeiters changed right along with us, so you cannot use this as a guide. Newer jars—both genuine and counterfeit–will always say “Egyptian”.
2.) Other markings. Over time we have made other minor changes to the label, including updating copyright information, re-locating the ® symbol and so on. Again, these changes have been duplicated and cannot be used as a guide. They have no bearing on whether a jar is genuine or not.
1.) Buy from an authorized reseller. Avoid Amazon and eBay if at all possible, and make sure you have an unconditional guarantee from any online seller.
2.) Insist on buying a jar that it has an engraved Use By date and lot code information. If an engraved code is there, make sure it is not adulterated in any way.
3.) If in doubt, DO NOT PUT IT ON YOUR SKIN! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you identify whether it is genuine Egyptian Magic.
The real question is, what can’t you use it for? We’ve been making Egyptian Magic for over twenty years, and our loyal customers keep surprising us with new creative uses. Egyptian Magic is one jar that contains a face cream, an eye gel, a hair masque, burn and wound relief, a baby cream, a shaving balm and anything else you can think of! We’ve even heard from veterinarians who use it on horses after surgery. If you think you’ve got a unique use, head over to our facebook.com/EgyptianMagic or twitter.com/egyptian_magic and let everyone know about it!
Please visit our Best Uses page for a quick summary of some of the main reasons people use Egyptian Magic. (http://egyptianmagicsa.co.za/best-uses/)
See the 3 steps (http://egyptianmagicsa.co.za/best-uses/).
Because Egyptian Magic is a solidified, oil-based product, you will see the best results if you soften it by warming it up before applying it. Take a small amount and rub it in your hands until it softens and turns into oil, then gently apply to your skin. A little Egyptian Magic goes a long way. If you are applying to your hair, warm it up and then gently rub it into the ends of your hair. You can also apply it to your hair and scalp as a hair mask. Just let it sit for an hour or more, and then wash it out with shampoo. Dab it on your face to highlight your cheekbones with a natural glow, or apply under your eyes to help with dark circles and dehydrated tissue. Gently apply over wet skin after a shower or bath for all-over hydration.
Egyptian Magic is completely safe to use on babies and infants. We’ve heard from mothers who use Egyptian Magic for diaper rash, stretch marks, and cracked nipples. However, as with any skin care product, please consult your pediatrician before use.
Every day, we hear from clients who have seen incredible results using Egyptian Magic on their eczema, psoriasis and other skin ailments. Egyptian Magic is not a medicine and we make no medical claims for the product. But we encourage you to read some of the testimonials on the international website (www.egyptianmagic.com/category/testimonials/). We also offer a 100% money back guarantee so you can try Egyptian Magic risk free and see how it works for you.
There is a lot of debate about whether to use oil-based or oil-free products on acne. A popular belief is that using oil-based products on your skin causes your body to stop producing oils, and results in smooth, clear skin. The testimonials from our customers indicate that Egyptian Magic is very effective in treating acne and some acne scarring, but we do not claim that Egyptian Magic is a treatment for acne.
Egyptian Magic is made of Honey, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and Bee Propolis. Our unique process combines these six simple ingredients to create a moisturizing balm unlike any other. That’s it. No additives, preservatives, fragrances, chemicals or parabens.
We use the highest-quality, purest and most effective ingredients we can find in making Egyptian Magic. Some of the ingredients are labeled “organic” and some are truly organic even though it isn’t on their label. However, we don’t choose our ingredients because of their label. We have found that just because an ingredient has the label “organic” doesn’t mean it is safe, healthy or unprocessed. Sadly, we have found some of the lowest-quality ingredients are nevertheless labeled “organic.”
No. Because we use bee products in the product, Egyptian Magic is not vegan.
The comedogenicity of a product refers to the likelihood that it will cause acne. It is measured of a 0-5 scale. We have not tested the comedogenicity of the product, but many of our customers use it for treating acne and acne scarring, so it is safe to assume it is very low. As some background, the two principal ingredients are olive oil and beeswax. Olive oil is rated as a 2 on the scale of comedogenicity; beeswax falls between 0-2, depending upon several factors. All of the other ingredients are at 0.
Every jar of Egyptian Magic is hand crafted by our company in the United States.
We do not, and never have, tested on animals. We are a proud PETA partner. (http://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/cruelty_free_companies_company.aspx?Com_Id=3273)
Yes it is. Our manufacturing team is a part of every step of the labor intensive process in our own facilities in Texas.
Absolutely! As long as you purchased from an authorized reseller, and have your receipt, you can return your jar for a full refund. If you have any problems with your refund, please contact us at email@example.com so that we can assist you.
