Cleopatra was definitely on to something when she chose to bathe in ass’s milk. The fat content of milk is what makes this soap super soft and moisturising. Products on your skin for a certain length of time will begin to be absorbed firstly through your epidermis and ultimately into your bloodstream. The fat molecules of the milk can be absorbed into your outer layers of skin feeding the cells with a host of vitamins and minerals and reputedly (according to Cleopatra anyway) hold back the ageing process.
Although a pricier option than cows’ milk, goats’ milk appeals to those who suffer with lactose intolerances.
