Donkey Milk; What is it and What is it Used For?

Donkey Milk; What is it and What is it Used For?

Donkey milk is a natural milk that is extracted and used cosmetically to renew the skins appearance. Donkey milk has been used throughout history, as it contains moisturising and antioxidant properties to protect the skin, face, and hair. So, what makes donkey milk so beneficial?

 Donkey milk acts as a powerful moisturiser, cleanser, and softener for the skin. With consistent use, it cleanses, softens and smooths, making it an essential beauty product. Donkey milk is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin D and amino acids that maintain the retention of moisture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and hydrating the skin. Source: The nutritional ingredients and antioxidant activity of donkey milk and donkey milk powder. Food Science and Biotechnology.

However, donkey milk is celebrated especially for its high retinol content. Retinol is a form of vitamin A that stimulates the increase of collagen production and regeneration of blood vessels near the surface of the skin. In turn, retinol improves skin discolouration and leaves the skin feeling plump and hydrated.


Donkey milk contains important antioxidants that ensure the skin is protected against ageing processes. Environmental factors, such as pollution and UV rays from the sun can speed up the ageing process and damaging healthy skin cells. Antioxidants, such as vitamin C, that are found in donkey milk products protect the skin from such damage. Certified dermatologist Dr Lian Mack explains; "Antioxidants protect your skin from and help reduce pigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles."


As you age, the skin naturally decreases collagen production, which can cause dryness in the skin that leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. As such, the appearance of fine lines can be minimised by stimulating collagen production. Donkey milk facilitates collagen production as it contains a high retinol content, giving it anti-ageing properties. Donkey milk not only has anti-ageing properties, it also contains essential fatty acids that are effective in soothing minor skin abrasions. 


Donkey milk has anti-inflammatory qualities that are effective in treating inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne. Donkey milk contains lactic acid that acts as a natural exfoliant that speeds up the generation of new skin cells by stimulating cell renewal. Lactic acid is extremely effective in treating acne-prone skin, renowned dermatologist Dr. Orit Markowitz states; “The great thing about donkey milk is that even though it works for all skin types, it's especially beneficial for those with acne-prone skin because of the high content of lactic acid." The essential fatty acids found in donkey milk can help regulating oil production in those with acne prone skin.

Donkey milk is an essential component of cosmetic routines that has been used throughout history. It contains essential amino acids, vitamins and antioxidants that facilitate anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. Click here to shop our full range of donkey milk products.
