Five good reasons to use donkey milk cosmetics
Posted by Myriam Dereix on
Nicknamed "the white gold of cosmetics" for its rarity, donkey's milk has been known since antiquity for its beneficial properties for all skin types and more particularly for sensitive and dry skin.
1. Moisturising and nourishing
Donkey milk is the closest to mother's milk, it is low in fat and rich in vitamins A, B2, C and E. Whether it is used in the form of milk, balm, cream, cold soap, foaming gel or shampoo, it helps the cells of your skin and hair to regenerate.
The composition of donkey milk prepares your skin for external aggressions and minimizes the risk of allergies for all skin types, even the driest and most sensitive (like your baby's).
It naturally contains proteins, glycoproteins, oxidoreductases as well as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial minerals. It ensures a healthy skin and reinforces the natural hydrolipidic film of all skin types.
The vitamins E and C contained in the balms, body creams and other care products based on donkey milk soften the skin and help to regenerate and revitalize the epidermis. Goodbye dead skin, your skin is like new.
These same anti-oxidant vitamins reduce the risk of pathologies as they protect your skin from free radicals, those unstable fragments of molecules seeking to bind to other atoms and causing toxic chain reactions in our bodies.
4. Soothing and restorative
In addition to soothing regular irritation and itching, or even skin problems (eczema, psoriasis...) and skin imperfections (acne, redness...), donkey milk, when used frequently, regulates the PH of your skin, fights against its abnormal dryness and repairs it durably. This is what we call "slow cosmetics".
5. An excellent anti-wrinkle treatment
We have known this since Cleopatra, who used to take daily donkey milk baths (700 donkeys per bath, to be precise!), donkey milk slows down the ageing of the skin thanks to its tensor effect and visibly smoothes it thanks to its composition based on linoleic acid, essential fatty acids, omega 3 and phospholipids.
Vitamin C also has the particularity of reconstituting collagen and promoting the healing of the skin, thus fighting against skin aging.
