Donkey milk as a natural cosmetic in history
Cleopatra’s beauty secrets

Donkey milk today is becoming very popular among natural cosmetic products for skin care and rejuvenation, but this is not a recent discovery, indeed.

As a natural skin care cosmetic, it has been known since ancient times. Take for example Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt, who bathed in milk every day. It was only donkey milk because as early as 4000 years ago, its anti-aging and beneficial cosmetic properties were known.

Cleopatra wasn’t the only one using it, also Emperor Nero’s wife used to bathe in donkey’s milk. Its effect was so powerful that when Poppea traveled, she always carried herds of donkeys to avoid giving up her rejuvenating bath. And even Napoleon’s sister, Paolina Bonaparte, was fascinated centuries later.

But what did these and many other women find in donkey milk? Definitely a natural cosmetic that rejuvenates the skin. In fact, this milk is rich in antioxidant and anti-aging substances.

In 1800, donkey milk was even used in France to cure diseases. This milk is in fact very rich in beneficial substances and is very similar to breast milk. Precisely for this reason, in history it has also been used as a nourishment for orphan newborns.
