The cosmetics market is an extremely competitive one, where new products are regularly provided. However, there are some traditional products that are still little known to the general public. This is particularly true of donkey’s milk soaps, whose benefits were already known to the great Cleopatra. Today, specialists agree that donkey’s milk soaps are precious in more ways than one, and are worthy skin care products. What are their specific characteristics? How should they be used? Where can you find them? These are just some of the questions we’ll be tackling in this article on the subject.
What are the special features of donkey milk soaps ?
Buttermilk soap has its own special characteristics, which we’ll explain below :
Donkey milk is a rare product
Asses’ milk is a very rare product in its natural state. Indeed, to return to Cleopatra, legend has it that for her to be able to take a bath in donkey’s milk, 700 donkeys had to be milked every day. We can deduce from this that either the Queen of Egypt had a large bathtub, or that the milk production of each animal was very limited… At the dawn of our current knowledge, we can claim that a donkey only produces 8 litres of milk a day, whereas a dairy cow produces ten times more. This has an impact on the price of this very special milk, nicknamed ‘white gold’ because of its rarity.
Donkey milk soap : natural benefits thanks to its composition
- Donkey soap naturally possesses attributes that make it an excellent moisturiser for the skin. It contains trace elements and minerals such as iron, potassium, magnesium, etc. which intensely nourish the skin and leave it soft.
- Donkey’s milk soap contributes to cell regeneration: in fact, it is extremely rich in omega 3 and 6, which promote cell regeneration.
- Donkey’s milk soap has antioxidant properties that actively combat skin ageing and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Donkey’s milk soaps used for the body add firmness to the skin.
- The soap is packed with vitamins contained in the milk. These include vitamins A, B2, B6, C, D and E, which add radiance and well-being to the skin.
Donkey milk soaps are varied
Donkey’s milk soaps can be used for a wide range of purposes. For example, they can be used to exfoliate, cleanse, moisturise and comfort the skin. These noble products can also be used in a more unexpected way, as they can be used to wash your hair. This practical use also means you can carry your solid shampoo in a travel kit, without the risk of the liquid spilling inside.
Their variety is also based on the aromatic combinations that soap producers provide. Shea butter, olive oil and coconut oil are added to enhance their effectiveness. Various fragrances are used, such as orange blossom or different fruits.
How do I get donkey milk soap ?
There are several ways to buy donkey milk soap :
From local producers
Some donkey milk producers provide cosmetic products alongside their food products. By buying from these producers, you can be sure of obtaining the product at source. This generally guarantees you a limited, high-quality production with a high milk content that respects the animals. What’s more, the price is advantageous because there is no middleman involved.
On the markets
In the provinces, it is not uncommon to come across soap merchants providing donkey milk products. Sometimes it’s even the producers themselves who try to promote their products. However, you need to be vigilant and make sure that the products really contain donkey’s milk and healthy products, as scams are common.
On the Internet
Nowadays, the Internet offers the advantage of not having to go anywhere, so it’s easy to find brands that provide donkey’s milk soaps. This is very practical and gives you a wide choice. However, we would advise you to check the donkey’s milk content and choose soaps with labels that guarantee the quality of the product and its origins.
