French Donkey Milk Soap

Our Lait d'Anesse soap is made with all-natural donkey milk. While donkey milk may sound like an unlikely ingredient for skincare products, it is the milk that Cleopatra bathed in to maintain her beauty. Donkey’s milk has been synonymous with youth and eternal beauty since ancient times with it's skin softening and moisturising properties. 

Our Lait d'Anesse soap is the skin care choice ideal for many reasons:

• It Is Fragrance Free And Gentle
Our Lait d'Anesse soap is ideal for all skin types - including babies, children, and anyone with extremely sensitive skin. While all of our handmade French soaps are chemical-free, we realize that some essential oils may still irritate individuals with sensitive skin - making this soap an ideal selection.

• Anti-Aging Properties
One of the many reasons Cleopatra turned to Lait d'Anesse soap is because of its anti-aging properties. This includes its ability to soften, smooth, tone, and moisturise. It is also full of essential vitamins that your skin requires to remain young and healthy. It also helps to slow and reverse fine lines cause by aging or repetitive movements such as smiling.

• Relieves Skin Conditions
Donkey's milk is very high in fatty acids and vitamins and contains anti-bacterial proteins and anti-allergens. It is reputed to alleviate skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, as well as asthma and bronchitis.

• Vitamin Rich
Donkey milk has nearly four times the amount of vitamin C that is found in cow's milk, and is incredibly tolerable. It is also full of vitamins, proteins, minerals and essential fatty acids, making it an ideal tonic for skincare. 

• Allergy Friendly
Donkey milk is vitamin-rich and contains anti-bacterial proteins and anti-allergens — substances that regulate the immune system, countering allergic reactions.
