Introducing our first Donkey Milk offering in the tallow version of the soap.
What is Donkey Milk?
Donkey milk was used in Ancient Egypt and Cleopatra bathed in donkey milk and her beauty was reported by many writers of that time.
A more scientific approach and skincare science now validates the use of donkey milk for skin care. Donkey milk contains a high amount of proteins, lactoglobulins, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. It also contains significant levels of vitamin C, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and vitamin B9. It has skin nourishing properties, rich in proteins, minerals, Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids and vitamins. It also offers collagen stimulation and anti-wrinkle activity.
What are the benefits?
Skin nourishment, enhancement of skin moisturization, and protection against free radical production. Components contained in the milk are biocompatible with the human skin and easily absorbed. Lysine contained in the milk contribute to increasing skin vitality.
Updates to the Vegan formulation:
We have incorporated non-GMO Soybean Glycerides and Shea Butter Unsaponifiables to the vegan formulation.
100% vegetable alternative to Lanolin. Soybean glycerides and an unsaponifiable fraction of shea butter are combined to meet the need for a long lasting film-forming, moisturizing agent. This is in addition to Jojoba Oil and raw Shea Butter. The outcome of this change is in the post shave experience where it leaves the skin with a soft and silky feel, differentiated hydration and long lasting moisturizing agent.
Donkey Milk is not part of the composition of the vegan formulation.
