Hydrosil Turmeric Butter & Hypoallergenic Milk Salve Review
I’ve heard of human breast milk being great for skin conditions, but I’d never given donkey milk a thought until I recently heard of Hydrosil Turmeric Butter & Hypoallergenic Milk Salve.
Skinshop.co.uk has just launched this new salve which contains donkey milk and turmeric butter and it’s great for dry skin and other skin conditions.
“Hydrosil Turmeric Butter & Hypoallergenic Milk Salve brings instant relief to patches of very dry and irritated skin. It also contains cardiospermum vine extract, which has been shown in a UK trial to be as effective as steroids for calming down eczema and soothing dry itchy skin.”
We’ve been testing this skin cream alongside the Hydrosil Dry Skin Moisturising Wash and are really enjoying using them.
Both my nearly 6-year-old and 3.5-year-old have dry skin. My eldest has eczema and my middle girl just gets dry and a bit itchy. I have to carefully select the products that we use in their baths and on their skin and can confirm that this range works well on them and does not cause any irritation.
I use the moisturising naturally foaming wash on both girls and it leaves skin feeling soft and protected. I use the cream on my middle daughter — my eldest has a cream for her eczema that I will not stop using as it’s the cream that works well for her.
“Donkey milk is known as a ‘hypoallergenic milk’, and has the lowest risk of irritation due to it being the closest to human breast milk in its composition of all the milks.”
“Donkey milk is high in amino acids and antimicrobial proteins, making it beneficial for dry and eczema prone skin. It also contains more lactoferrin and lysozyme than cow’s milk so can help calm skin irritation. The vitamin C content in donkey milk is almost four times that of cow’s milk.”
Donkey milk has been used for skincare for a very long time — Cleopatra bathed daily in donkey milk to starve off dryness and keep her skin soft and it was historically used to treat babies and children with skin allergies. The spice turmeric was also widely used as a poultice to reduce inflammation from skin allergies in both Egyptian and Indian cultures. By blending turmeric into a buttery base, it can more easily be absorbed by the skin.
During the Renaissance period the first scientific studies on the skin benefits of donkey milk proved its positive effects on skin allergies and Napoleon’s sister used donkey milk for her sensitive skin.
Hydrosil Turmeric Butter & Hypoallergenic Milk Salve is a great cream for dry skin patches and adds relief and hydration very quickly. We love using both the wash and the cream and would definitely get these again.
