Packed with vitamins, essential fatty acids as well as proteins, donkey milk soap has a host of potential benefits for your skin.



Believe it or not, donkey milk soap has more vitamin C than cow’s milk does. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights environmental damage by neutralizing free radicals before they effect the skin. It also has positive effects on skin tone, where it’s known to lighten and brighten the skin.



Everybody’s skin can use a little hydrating. Keeping your skin hydrated is probably the single most important practice in your skincare routine, besides maybe sunscreen. And donkey milk soap is an excellent hydrator!


Because donkey milk has a pH level that’s very similar to that of human skin, it can help balance the production of sebum. By regulating sebum production, donkey milk soap helps keep skin hydrated (also decreasing your chances of a breakout). The glycoproteins and polyunsaturated fatty acids contained in donkey milk soap are also excellent for maintaining the skin’s moisture barrier. A healthy moisture barrier allows for your skin to heal and balance itself.



Donkey milk is known for not only reducing skin irritation but also for repairing already damaged skin tissue. The low omega 6 to omega 3 ratio is what makes this soap anti-inflammatory and the high amounts of vitamin A helps to repair skin. It also protects against bacterial infections that can cause skin inflammation.



Proteins, phospholipids and ceramides can all be found in donkey milk and it is these items that contribute to the regenerative effects of donkey milk soap. Unsaturated fatty acids also play a role by maintaining the health of cell membranes. This way, they are more easily able to regenerate and turnover the dead skin cells that build up on our skin’s surface and cause dullness, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, etc.


Moreover, in terms of those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles, the proteins in donkey milk have a tightening effect on the skin, which helps reduce their appearance. Combined with the anti-aging effects of vitamins A, C and E, donkey milk soap has a strong reputation for skin restructuring and regenerating with excellent results.



If you have skin concerns or suffer from conditions like eczema, neurodermatitis or psoriasis, the highly-moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties of donkey milk soap might help. Quality donkey milk soaps are made mostly with light and natural ingredients, so sensitive skin is protected and repaired.


Donkey milk soap is also beneficial for people with skin allergies or acne. The lactoperoxidase contained in the milk has antibacterial properties that are good for oily skin prone to acne.
