COMPOSITION

Donkey's & Co do not use parabens or other harmful products. Their Ecocert-certified Organic Donkey's Milk makes up 5% of the formulas, because specialists believe that anything over 7% leads to conservation problems. To develop these products, Donkey's & Co decided to work with a laboratory in Catalonia that ensures them of reliability and a cutting-edge Research and Development department.

PACKAGING

Donkey's & Co use low concentration of authorized preservatives. To do this, they deliberately choose packages called "Airless" for all their products. Indeed, only this packaging prevents air from entering the application bottle. The formulas are protected from oxidation and outdoor contamination, especially after opening, whereas a classic jar immediately becomes a culture broth. Thus, all Donkey's & Co products have no expiration date.

Issues with palm oil led us to buy Organic palm oil with an Ecocert and CSPO certification. Why?

We believe that palm oil (extracted from the pulp of the palm fruit) and palm kernel oil (extracted from the kernel of the palm fruit) improve the quality of soap, as they gently clean and nourish the epidermis in depth. They are indeed very rich in fatty acids, that have regenerating and moisturizing properties and in carotenoids, precursors of vitamin A, which protect and soften the skin. Palm oil, originally from Guinea, has been used in cosmetics for two centuries and contributed to the rise of Phocean soap factories. Its use is not new since it is found in jars unearthed in Egyptian tombs over 5,000 years.
 
The problem is the recent intensive monoculture of oil palm in Indonesia and Malaysia, two countries that concentrate 85% of the world production, and cause an ecological disaster: deforestation leading to disappearance of many species, pollution, reduction of biodiversity, etc. Substitute products such as coconut oil or soybean oil are not better ecologically, because these plants, less efficient, require larger cultivated areas.
Therefore, we decided to buy these products only to an Ecocert-certified Organic producer, located outside Southeast Asia and, especially as recommended by WWF and Oxfam, a RSPO (Roundtable Sustainable Palm Oil) certified producer who provides only CSPO oil (Certified Sustainable Palm Oil). Today these are the labels that guarantee a sustainable industry and rational agriculture.
In the beauty world, donkey milk is a source of youth that has been known for centuries and that is being rediscovered little by little. Donkey milk resembles the most to breast milk, which is the source of all beginnings. Nothing is more natural, universal and timeless than donkey milk.

Donkey milk was already known to ancient civilizations. In 375 BC, the Greek physician Hippocrates recommended it for all sorts of illnesses (wound healing, poisoning, joint pain). Of course, there was also Cleopatra VII, who used to bath in donkey milk. It is said that she owned a herd of 300 jennies, intended for this purpose. Moreover, the Romans used it to prepare luxury drinks and beauty products. In fact, the world’s oldest face cream was found by archaeologists in London in 2003. The state of preservation of this item -of 2,000 years- was outstanding. The marks of the cream owner’s fingers were still in the pot. Federico Nappo, a Pompeii expert in cosmetics, reminds us that “The Romans used donkey milk as a skin treatment.” Pliny the Elder, in his “Natural History” writings, described how Poppea, Nero’s wife, took donkey milk baths (63 AD). He also describes its properties: “It is believed that donkey milk makes face wrinkles disappear, smooths the skin and maintains the skin whiteness.”

Much later, Pauline, Napoleon's sister, is said to have used donkey milk as a skin care product. In the 19th and 20th century, donkey milk replaced breast milk in orphanages. In 1877, the Saint Vincent de Paul Hospital decided to set up a stable next to the dormitories to feed the children. At that time, this beverage was also distributed in some large cities of France such as Toulouse and Paris. However, years later, donkey milk had already been forgotten until a young farmer, in 1995, decided to restart its production in Ariège. Today, a small number of donkey milk producers enable us to enjoy its benefits.

PROPERTIES

But why is donkey milk so good ? First, it is very different from the milk of ruminants that have multiple stomachs; their three-day digestion time oxidizes the fatty acids and vitamins. Donkeys have a monogastric digestive system, just as humans do. Furthermore, the milk of ruminants has a very high bacterial load due to its digestion by fermentation. Donkey milk, however, has enzymes (lysozyme and lactoferrin) which are powerful anti-microbial agents. Moreover, donkey milk is very complete and very similar to breast milk.
 
It is rich in vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, E), minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc...), trace elements and essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6). It has retinol (vitamine A) which produces a lifting effect on the skin, therefore a good anti-aging treatment. Retinol helps skin healing and accelerates the production of collagen. Donkey milk hydrates the top layers of the epidermis since it is rich in essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6). Recommended for people with premature skin aging or skin problems such as eczema, acne or psoriasis.
