Discover 10 Eye-Opening Facts about the Potent Donkey’s Milk Soap You Didn't Know About!

We often get asked the difference between our Goat’s Milk Soap Base and Donkey’s Milk Soap Base from DIY soap makers all the time. So we did some fascinating research to share with all you curious soap makers out there. 

While both donkey's milk soaps bases and goat's milk soap bases are rich in nutrients, they contain different levels of vitamins and minerals, benefiting different types of skin in different ways.

  • Rare and Exclusive: Donkey's milk is considered one of the rarest and most precious types of milk used in skincare. Its scarcity adds to its allure and exclusivity in the beauty industry.
  • Vitamin C Content: Donkey's milk soap contains higher levels of vitamin C compared to goat's milk. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps brighten the skin, even out skin tone, and promote collagen production for firmness and elasticity.
  • Mineral Content: While both milks contain essential minerals, donkey's milk soaps are particularly rich in calcium and potassium. Calcium helps maintain the skin's barrier function and supports cell renewal, while potassium helps regulate moisture balance, keeping the skin hydrated and supple.

  • Brightening and Even-Toning: The high vitamin C content in donkey's milk soap can help reduce the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone, resulting in a brighter and more radiant complexion.
  • Enhanced Moisturization: Donkey's milk contains a balanced ratio of fats and proteins, which helps to deeply moisturize the skin without feeling heavy or greasy. This makes it ideal for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin seeking intense hydration.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Donkey's milk has been found to have potent anti-inflammatory effects, making it effective in soothing irritated or sensitive skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and acne. It helps calm redness, reduce swelling, and promote overall skin comfort.

  • Vitamin E: While both milks contain vitamin E, donkey's milk typically has higher levels of this antioxidant vitamin. Vitamin E helps protect the skin from environmental damage, such as UV radiation and pollution, and promotes skin repair and regeneration for a healthier complexion.


  • Vitamin A: Donkey's milk soap also contains vitamin A, although in slightly lower levels compared to goat's milk. Vitamin A supports cell turnover, helping to unclog pores, reduce acne, and fade acne scars and blemishes for smoother and clearer skin.


  • Fat Content: Donkey's milk has a lower fat content compared to goat's milk, making it lighter and less greasy on the skin. This makes donkey's milk soap a suitable option for individuals with oilier skin types.


  • Skin Healing Properties: Donkey's milk contains lysozyme, an enzyme that has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, aiding in wound healing and preventing infections.
