Let's be honest, sometimes ingredients in skincare products seem so out there, they just can't be real. But in the case of this growing skincare trend, you better believe it's real! Donkey milk is a vitamin-packed product making its way through the Korean skincare world. Here's everything you need to know about the bizarre ingredient!

The Ingredient: Donkey milk

Quick take: regenerates skin, smoothes out wrinkles, moisturizes skin

Claims to fame: Milk-infused beauty products aren't really anything new. We've already seen goat and coconut milk beauty products, which work wonders skin concerns ranging from eczema to acne. When it comes to donkey milk, the benefits are just as vast. "The [donkey] milk is packed with proteins, phospholipids, ceramides, vitamins, and minerals," explains Alicia Yoon, founder of Asian skincare hub Peach & Lily. As any true beauty lover already knows, proteins are building blocks of great skin, hair, and nails, whereas phospholipds are fatty acids essential to the skin barrier, and ceramides are a key component in repairing damaged skin.
