Of the many things that Egyptians left behind in the form of cultural heritage and the art of daily life, was their reliance on natural ingredients to maintain their beauty. For blemish-free and healthy skin, it is believed that Cleopatra, who was an Egyptian Goddess of beauty, used donkey milk in her everyday skincare routine. She has been remembered for thousands of years for her magnificent beauty and wit, and her physical appearance sufficiently complemented who she was. 

It is an ancient belief that Cleopatra, known as the most beautiful Egyptian queen, had 700 female donkeys, which provided her with donkey milk. This was the secret ingredient that Cleopatra used everyday in her bath and the reason for her glowing and youthful skin.

Organiko products are an amalgamation of this secret ingredient used by Cleopatra, combined with Ayurvedic recipes that are proven to be beneficial for the skin. 

Cleopatra’s Egyptian beauty was synonymous with her bravery, courage and confidence. Through our products, we wish to encourage every woman to embrace themselves for who they are, and manifest their inner beauty, combined with the radiance of beautiful skin, to set an example for many others to follow.

Donkey milk used by Cleopatra is believed to have calming qualities which help balance the pH level of the skin, along with providing proper hydration. 

There are many other ingredients that Cleopatra used, and so did other women- known for their Egyptian beauty. At Organiko, we use licorice, tea tree oil, honey, cinnamon, hibiscus and pomegranate along with donkey milk to make soaps suited for Indian skin. They help get rid of dust and grime, and leave the skin feel naturally healthy and toxin-free. Here are few of them:

  1. Donkey milk: The Queen of Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra, was regarded as one of the most beautiful Egyptian women. To preserve the beauty of her skin, she took baths in donkey milk daily. Besides, Hippocrates, the father of medicine, prescribed donkey milk for diseases, and also for treating fever, wounds, etc. Donkey milk has four times the amount of Vitamin C than cow’s milk. So, it’s no secret that donkey milk benefits is a powerhouse of nutrients for both skin and body. Donkey milk is known as a natural elixir for the skin. It is rich in vitamin E, amino acids, vitamins A, B1, B6, C, E, Omega 3, and 6. If used consistently, donkey milk acts as a cleanser and moisturizer for the skin. With its healing and rejuvenating qualities, donkey milk is becoming a key ingredient for skincare. 
  2. Milk and honey: Cleopatra often mixed honey in donkey milk to make a body wash and face cleanser. Honey is said to have exfoliating qualities which rid the skin of its impurities. At Organiko, we have Donkey Milk and honey soaps which nourish the skin without taking off the layer of nourishment. This is a refreshing combination to maintain skin texture and natural glow. Honey also protects skin from blemishes, acne and pimples and nourishes skin pores deeply.

One can only imagine how the products at Organiko containing donkey milk with other ingredients will help to sooth and nourish skin, in a manner similar to that used by beautiful Egyptian women.
