About Donkey Milk


For more than 2100 years Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt was aware of the toning, moisturizing and rejuvenating qualities of the skin that the Milk of Burra provides, and of its beneficial effects on the skin: In ancient Rome, Pompey also used it to maintain its smooth skin, soft and retaining its youth. Josephine of Napoleon had the same practice. The beauty of all was in history.

In fact, Milk of Donkey contains Vitamins, Proteins and Fatty Acids that stimulate the production of Collagen in human skin. In addition, Donkey’s milk also has antioxidant properties that slow the aging of the skin. Thus, among the benefits of using these products are the increase in firmness and elasticity of the skin.

The reduction of wrinkles and skin blemishes is also promoted through the use of Tomelo CLEO products. It is very effective in reducing the symptoms associated with dermatological diseases such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczemas, greatly relieving the people who have them.

The Donkey Milk fresh used for the production of these Natural Soaps and Creams comes from Donkeys of Asinina de Miranda and its use will not only moisturize and prevent aging of the skin: besides these qualities you can verify, the use of these products will decisively contribute to help save these friendly and animal friends from the only Portuguese Autochthonous Breed designated as “Miranda’s Donkey”, an autochthonous Asinine species of the Trás-os-montes region of the Mirandese Plateau that is seriously threatened with extinction.

For all these reasons, this product is much more than a quality commercial product: it is a project that contributes actively to the preservation of Biodiversity and conservation of the Genetic Heritage, contributes to the social preservation of many uses and customs associated with the threatened species, and should therefore also be seen as a project of Eco-Social and Cultural Development.
