Cleopatra was not mistaken; the virtues of donkey milk for youthful skin were already known in her time. She bathed daily in donkey milk to preserve her legendary beauty. Poppaea, the wife of Nero, and Josephine, the wife of Napoleon, did the same.

The secret of donkey milk lies in the richness of its composition. Vitamins, minerals, trace elements contribute to its effectiveness in skincare, but these are not the only elements; others will act on the skin to maintain its youth, protect it, and purify it.


The high concentration of vitamins C and E with antioxidant properties will slow down skin aging.

Indeed, the skin undergoes multiple aggressions over time: external aggressions such as wind, cold, excess sun, or the effects of poor nutrition, alcohol, or smoking.

Faced with these elements, cells oxidize, they rust in a way, and thus encounter difficulties in renewing correctly. This leads to accelerated skin aging. Thus, antioxidants that are either ingested or applied to the skin will slow down this process of cellular oxidation.

The presence of proteins, and particularly alpha-lactalbumin*, will also contribute to the youthfulness of the skin. The benefits of this protein are numerous. Here are some of them:

  • Hydration: alpha-lactalbumin can help retain moisture in the skin and make it more hydrated and supple.

  • Antioxidant: alpha-lactalbumin can help stimulate collagen production in the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


Vitamin A and essential fatty acids (omega-3 and 6) present in donkey milk act directly on the cell membrane to strengthen it and contribute to its hydration and regeneration.

Alpha-lactalbumin can have a soothing effect and help reduce redness and irritations. It can also help regulate sebum production in the skin, reducing the appearance of pimples and enlarged pores.

The presence of lactoferrin helps purify the skin and limit the appearance of blemishes.

The lactose in donkey milk has hydrating and softening properties.

Thus, donkey milk is suitable for all skin types, including mature, dry, sensitive, oily, and blemished skin.

*Note: The term "alpha-lactalbumin" is kept untranslated as it is a specific protein name.
