The Benefits of Using Organic Donkey Milk Products on The Skin

Everybody knows that eating organically is proven to be better for both our bodies, and the environment… this can be applied to our skincare as well! The skin is the body’s largest organ and absorbs almost everything that is applied onto its surface. Applying harsh chemicals that are hidden in some skincare products can speed up the ageing process and unknowingly exposing us to a wide range of unnecessary chemicals, which eventually make their way into our bloodstream. Organic based ingredients have dense nutrient profiles that deliver essential vitamins, antioxidants and minerals directly to the skin’s surface, without harming our complexion or wellbeing.  



Organic skincare contains organically grown ingredients, meaning they are free from any pesticides and other synthetic chemicals that can wreak havoc on our skin. Organic products are deemed to be “more beneficial for the skin”, as they have a higher content of active antioxidants and vitamins, which combat free radicals that can build up on the skin and cause unwanted breakouts and premature ageing.


Organic products have been used throughout history to form ancient skincare remedies that achieve (and maintain) flawless complexions! Ancient Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra, was renowned for bathing in the milk of seven hundred donkeys to preserve her youthful complexion, as it contained a natural lactic acid that served as an organic exfoliant which supposedly “lurked a magic which would dispel all blights from your beauty.” We now know donkey milk contains essential fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamins A, B, C, D, and E - which work together to blur wrinkles, regenerate damaged skin and rejuvenate your complexion…So, lather up!



Just like our bodies, our skin needs nutrients to thrive. Knowing what nutrients your skin needs will ensure it stays hydrated and nourished all year… The three main nutrients our skin requires are:

  • Vitamins
  • Antioxidants
  • Fatty Acids

Donkey milk contains a high retinol content that stimulates the skins production of collagen - the nutrient that maintains the skin’s elasticity and hydration and keeps us looking young! Vitamins act as “cell communicators” that attach to the skin cells and assist them in functioning like younger versions of themselves. They also facilitate the increase of skin cell turnover, which is the key to achieving glowing, youthful and radiant skin.

Donkey milk is celebrated for its high levels of active antioxidants that serve as “skin vigilantes”, protecting the skin from free radicals that can accumulate on the skin as harmful products of environmental pollution, UV rays or toxins. Antioxidants ‘neutralise’ unstable free radicals, which helps break a chain reaction that can affect other molecules in the cell and other cells in the body, minimising the frequency of breakouts and slowing down the ageing process.

Fatty acids such as, omega-3s and omega-6s act as “skin care powerhouses”. They provide the building blocks of healthy cell membranes, which are essential in producing and protecting the skin's natural oil barrier, and critical in keeping skin hydrated, and youthful! Donkey milk is known for its richness in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants - which provide anti-inflammatory and healing properties, to soften smooth and protect your skin.



Donkey milk has been used throughout history as an organic (and effective!) skincare remedy that minimises breakouts, softens the skin and reduces the effects of ageing. It contains a dense nutrient profile of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and Vitamins A, B, C, D and E that work together to ensure your skin is happy and healthy!
