Donkey Milk Uses

Donkey milk is certainly nothing new. Since ancient times humans have known about donkey milk benefits. Donkey milk benefits for health, as well as donkey milk benefits for skin, are abundant!

There are many donkey milk uses and special benefits that make it worth the extra effort though.

Donkeys do not fit every farm, but if they fit yours they can provide more than you think. Their most popular use is as a livestock guardian but what if you would like to get more from your donkeys? Check out this post here What Are Donkeys Used For?  then read on about donkey milk uses today.

Donkey Milk Uses in Soap and Skin Care Products

I’m a Licensed Esthetician and I’ve used many skincare products over the years. I’ve even used a lot of high-end products costing in the hundreds while I was in esthetics school. It was part of my education to understand and know the skincare products available. Nothing has compared to skin care products made with donkey milk along with natural herbs that possess benefits for the skin such as chamomile and comfrey.

My Donkey Milk soap is amazing if I do say so myself 🙂 and I’ve received rave reviews from everyone who tried it.  Donkey Milk also makes some of the best lotions I’ve ever used. Age spots literally faded to nothing!

Donkey milk is especially effective for flaky skin, allergy-prone/sensitive skin and mature/again skin. But all can reap the benefits of donkey milk in their skincare. Just like Cleopatra did who kept approximately 700 donkeys to give her the milk she needed to bathe in it.
