What Makes Shea Butter So Special?

Shea butter works great on the skin, you can feel it as soon as you apply it!

Shea butter gives the skin a lot of moisture and elasticity after use and also has wound-healing properties.

  • Vitamin E (tocopherol): ensures elastic and young skin. Vitamin E is also one of the antioxidants and protects the skin from free radicals.
  • Beta-carotene: The precursor to vitamin A also has a cell-protecting effect and thus counteracts skin aging.
  • Allantoin: has anti-inflammatory properties, soothes irritated skin and stimulates skin cell renewal.
  • Unsaturated fatty acids, including linolenic acid: have an anti-inflammatory effect

Shea butter has a high content of unsaponifiable fats, which are not water-soluble. As a result, a light, protective film of fat forms on the skin, which remains on the skin longer than with other vegetable fats or oils.

What makes donkey milk so special?

Donkey milk has been a symbol of beauty, skin care and valuable cosmetics for humans for thousands of years.

Today, donkey milk is mainly used for allergies and skin diseases: allergy sufferers are said to drink the milk, pure donkey milk is also a cosmetic in which Cleopatra, Empress Elisabeth and Joséphine Bonaparte are said to have bathed.

Donkey milk is a good alternative for babies and toddlers with a cow's milk allergy. Due to its composition, it can replace 99% of mother's milk!

The milk is comparatively expensive (which is why full baths in it are rare), because the donkeys produce little milk and this hardly plays a role in Europe, and it also curdles very quickly. As with other types of milk, products such as butter can be made from it.

Donkey milk soap is also becoming increasingly popular for skin care. It gives off a rich, creamy lather.

Donkey milk is still used today for skin treatments. However, as a cosmetic product, donkey milk is so expensive that it is no longer normally used for skin baths. There are two reasons why donkey milk is so valuable: on the one hand, female donkeys give very little milk, and on the other hand, there are hardly any donkeys left in Europe because their importance as livestock and pack animals is no longer relevant.
