Having sensitive skin can be heartbreaking, especially since you have few options when it comes to skincare products. However, donkey milk soap is known to renew and repair the skin, which is great for all skin. Therefore, missing out on the hydrating properties of donkey milk soap could be unfortunate. We have listed the best donkey milk soaps and what makes them suitable for your skin.

The Best Donkey Milk Soaps

1) Grisi Leche de Burra, Donkey's Milk Soap

My hands and skin were soft within the first few uses of this soap. The bar is infused with shea butter and beeswax, guaranteed to moisturize the skin and give it a youthful appearance. Additionally, this soap is perfect for use all over the body and face if you have dry skin. I like to buy skincare products with natural ingredients, and this was the perfect bar of soap.

The soap is also rich in milk protein, so it's perfect for all skin types since milk proteins moisturize and help to restore damaged or sensitive skin. For example, I get flaky skin, especially when walking in the sun. This soap restores balance to my skin, and I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars.

Next, donkey milk is rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, and E, enabling skin cells to regenerate faster. Additionally, this donkey milk soap can benefit even people with normal skin. I have introduced my children and the whole family to this soap, and there has not been a single reaction.

However, I did experience a rash the first time I used this soap. But it cleared up on its own after a few days. Other than that, it's been smooth sailing ever since. However, I recommend that anyone do a patch test before using it to ensure they don't react.

Of course, donkey milk is perfect for mild acne and acne marks. If you have teenagers suffering from acne, then this is the soap for them. Additionally, anyone with acne knows that the scarring is a nightmare. This soap promotes your skin's natural barrier and lessens the appearance of scars.

I had a little acne scarring and started using this soap bar. I saw results in 2 weeks of regular use, twice a day. The soap lathers well for a mildly scented soap and doesn't leave any sticky residue on your skin. After using this soap, your skin will feel clean but not dry, which is a plus considering I expected it to be drying.

I was also surprised by how it softens the skin and leaves a lasting moisturizing feeling. However, the best part about this splendid soap bar is that you can use it to wash your hair. It is the perfect all-around soap for my young ones. I don't have to use different products on their hair and body. One natural bar of soap is all it takes.

The soap has coconut oil and olive oil extracts that can soothe any redness from drying skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. In addition, the moisture that the donkey milk re-introduces to the skin is very refreshing. This is an excellent all-around product.

Everyone loves a traditional, handmade bar of soap. Therefore, I was excited to try this all-natural and all-around soap bar. I was hooked on this soap bar after noticing some blackheads gone after 2 weeks of daily usage. The soap is enriched with vegetable oils to keep your skin soft, fresh, and plump.

For problematic skin like psoriasis and eczema, this soap is very soothing and reduces inflammation. Additionally, this soap has no chemical additives or perfumes, making the ingredients suitable for any skin type. Finally, if your skin dries out quickly, I found that applying a good moisturizer keeps your skin supple immediately after taking a shower with this soap.

Of course, it is safe to use on the hair. However, I noticed that if you don't rinse the soap thoroughly, it can dry your scalp and cause dandruff. However, the dandruff didn't last long and cleared up after I washed it with my regular shampoo. So that's a non-issue if you rinse well.

Lastly, the soap stings the eyes. Therefore, if you use it on small children, it is best to avoid their heads to prevent stinging. Other than that, this soap is awesome, and I will consider buying it again.


  • Balances skin moisture
  • Good for sunspots
  • Soothing
  • Cleans the skin well


  • Stings the eyes

I ordered this bar of soap after a friend recommended it to me. Safe to say this was a good recommendation. Infused with vegetable glycerin, this soap made my skin feel smooth with the first use. I must commend that the bar is attached to a loofah that leaves your skin feeling exfoliated and clean.

Image source:

If you are worried about the loofah being too abrasive, let me address your concerns by saying it is not abrasive. It softens with moisture. Therefore, you will have the best loofah within the first two uses. Did I mention the loofah is made from natural gourd fibers that gently exfoliate the dead skin on my heels and elbows?

Of course, the soap is safe to use on the face, hair, and body without getting a bad reaction. However, I did notice how moisturized my skin felt. I realized this soap also has pH-balancing properties for smoother skin. Furthermore, it has no parabens or harmful ingredients commonly found in some soaps.

The soap is lightly scented. However, the brand doesn't use any fragrances. The mild and refreshing smell is due to added essential oils in the donkey milk. Essential oils are vital in moisturizing and keeping the bar of soap fresh. It's worth mentioning that this soap cleared some bumps on my skin and was beneficial for my keratosis pilaris.


  • No harmful ingredients
  • Handcrafted
  • Lathers well
  • Convenient
  • Moisturizing


  • It doesn't last long

If you have skin prone to sunspots, this is the soap for you. My husband has very fair skin, which makes him susceptible to sunburn and sunspots. When he used this soap, it magically faded all the sunspots and made the sunburn less irritated. Of course, even with sunscreen, the summers get very hot.

Image source:

After a long day, he likes a good lather with this soap since it leaves his skin feeling moisturized. Of course, this isn't a far fetch because the soap contains olive oil to moisturize the skin and coconut oil to soothe irritated skin.

These two ingredients are a powerhouse, especially when it comes to sensitive skin. It is worth mentioning that donkey milk soap mixed with other plants (plants with deep roots like neem) oils is also beneficial for the skin.

It also has cotton-seed oil, an excellent anti-inflammatory for acne and eczema. Of course, it is also the perfect hand-washing soap, especially if you do household chores. It has saved my hands from drying up or flaking. After using it, I go in with a moisturizer for more suppleness. This is a very nice bar of soap; I'd recommend it to anyone.


  • Moisturizing
  • No harmful ingredients
  • Long-lasting
  • Not scented
  • Good for sensitive skin


  • The rough cut of the soap can take a lot of work to get around.

Factors to Consider Before Buying Donkey Milk Soap

Below are a few things you should consider before diving in to buy donkey milk soap. I went through a trial phase before I got the soap that worked for me. Here are some factors to consider:

a) Skin Type

Problematic skin with eczema

Image source:

Most people searching for donkey milk soaps usually have sensitive skin. However, everyone can use donkey milk soap. Remember that people with sensitive skin and conditions like eczema and psoriasis benefit most from donkey milk soaps. The all-natural formulation of donkey milk soap is perfect for calming down irritated skin.

Of course, donkey milk soap is perfect for all skin types. However, before trying it on sensitive or normal skin, do a patch test to ensure you aren’t allergic or reactive. If you have skin conditions like rosacea, you should do the patch test when you don’t have an active flare-up.

b) Ingredients

Donkey milk ingredients

Image source:

Ingredients are important, especially if you want to avoid the chemicals commonly found in industrially manufactured soaps. Donkey milk soaps are made with different ingredients, depending on the brand. However, the soap should always have the main ingredient listed as donkey milk.

Most brands give you a breakdown of the ingredients. While some donkey milk soaps are made with all-natural ingredients like olive oil and other essential oils, some have chemicals. Additionally, you might be sensitive to ingredients such as palm seed oil.

Therefore, checking out the ingredients is recommended. I have found that a combination of donkey milk and olive oil is the best for my skin.

c) How Long does the Soap Lasts

Long-lasting soap

Image source:

Before buying donkey milk soap, ensure you know how long the soap will last. Perhaps you should also note that any donkey milk product must be used when it’s fresh. Otherwise, the efficacy is reduced. To get the full benefits of this soap, like cell regeneration, exfoliation, and suppleness, it’s recommended to use the freshest batch you can find.

Donkey milk soap generally lasts between 1 and 2 weeks. However, if you push it, it can last 3 weeks of irregular use. Therefore, consider that before buying this soap.

d) How the Donkey Milk was Sourced

Sourcing of donkey milk

Image source:

Donkeys are smart and affectionate animals. That being said, a mother donkey can only produce milk when her baby is around. Therefore, consider the well-being of the donkeys before using a product. Most donkey milk businesses source their milk ethically and without harming animals since donkeys only produce a liter of milk daily. Unfortunately, this makes donkey milk products a scarce commodity since they cannot be batch produced ethically.

Also, donkey milk is unsuitable for vegetarians because it contains animal proteins. Other ingredients like olive oil, palm seed, and coconut oil are not animal-based. You also have to ensure that the donkey was kept in humane conditions and given the best feed, and snacks like mangoes.

e) Budget


Image source:

Donkey milk products are on the higher side. As I stated earlier, donkey milk products cannot be mass-produced. The more scarce they are, the higher the price tag. Since donkey milk soap is expensive, some people might not be able to afford it every 2-3 weeks. Therefore, consider this before buying the soap.

Donkey milk soap costs upwards of $6 for a few ounces minus shipping. However, despite the hefty price tag, the benefits are unmatched. Donkey milk is an excellent source of healing properties thanks to its nutritional value, high immunogenic power, and palatability.

Frequently Asked Questions About Organic Donkey Milk Soap

i) Is donkey milk soap good?

Yes. It is. Donkey milk soap is high in phospholipids and vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. These properties make it perfect for cell regeneration, exfoliation, and anti-inflammatory.

ii) Does donkey milk lighten the skin?

No, it doesn’t. However, promoting cell regeneration and protecting the skin’s moisture barrier restores the skin’s natural glow and brightness.

iii) Which breed of donkey milk is best?

The Ragusano breed of the donkey has large milk production. The milk itself is also high in nutritional quality.

iv) Are there side effects of using donkey milk?

Generally, there aren’t. However, donkey milk should be out of the question if you are lactose intolerant, even if your symptoms are not serious.

The Bottom Line

The price tag of donkey milk products is higher than normal products. However, it is well worth the price, and the benefits you get in return are numerous. Donkey milk soap is generally suitable for all skin types. It checks all the pit stops so far as skin rejuvenation goes.
