Our donkey milk soaps are made in Provence in a totally traditional way. The country of essential oils, perfumes, lavender, clays and olive oil is indeed the world reference for soap manufacturing. The first known Marseille soap maker appeared in 1371; his name was Crescas Davin. Today, after the intensive use of synthetic surfactants used in liquid soaps, there is a renewed interest in traditional bar soap and natural products. Our donkey’s milk soaps are the result of this culture and this story. We have carefully developed eight natural soaps using organic donkey’s milk.
COMPOSITION: Soaps are vegetable based and no animal fat is used. This common basis is Ecocert-certified organic. It consists of palm oil (extracted from the pulp of the palm fruit) palm kernel oil (extracted from the almond kernel of the palm fruit) from sustainable plantations in Colombia, and organic glycerin as a moisturizing source. This is a product that does not participate in the deforestation of primary forest in Indonesia (see details in “Donkeys and Co.”). This base is very soft to the skin. We add our Ecocert-certified Organic donkey’s milk produced in France, and then, depending on the soap, we add other oils and essential oils. 99% of the composition is natural and 83% organic. Our soaps are hand-crafted, paraben free, nor EDTA. Of course, our soaps are not tested on animals. With their low water content, they last four times longer than ordinary soaps.
BENEFITS: Our donkey’s milk soaps do not dry the skin; on the contrary, they moisturize the upper layers of the epidermis. They give you all the benefits of donkey’s milk, in particular the retinol and its tightening effect. They are used for both body and face. Do not forget that the basis for any cosmetic care is a good daily cleaning of the skin.
This unique brand of soaps and cosmetics made from donkey’s milk, was created out of the desire, of someone who loves a job well done, to develop an original line of sophisticated products made with donkey’s milk. Christophe Gauquelin, a lover of the sea and of nature, began his professional life as a captain in the merchant marine. When he was 30 years old, another challenge caught up with him to be closer to people and nature. He spent 10 years on a sailboat sailing the seas. Every port of call made him increasingly aware of the fragility of our planet, but travelling from one continent to another also gave him a passion for fragrances. Once back in Europe, he worked for a Swiss cosmetics company in Barcelona for more than five years, and he came in contact with the white gold that is donkey’s milk.
