Presenting our barbershop soap in Donkey Milk in the tallow version.

What is Donkey Milk?

Donkey milk was used in Ancient Egypt and Cleopatra bathed in donkey milk and her beauty was reported by many writers of that time.

A more scientific approach and skincare science now validates the use of donkey milk for skin care. Donkey milk contains a high amount of proteins, lactoglobulins, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. It also contains significant levels of vitamin C, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and vitamin B9. It has  skin nourishing properties, rich in proteins, minerals, Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids and vitamins. It also offers collagen stimulation and anti-wrinkle activity.

What are the benefits?

Skin nourishment, enhancement of skin moisturization, and protection against free radical production. Components contained in the milk are biocompatible with the human skin and easily absorbed.  Lysine contained in the milk contribute to increasing skin vitality.

Vegan formulation:

We have incorporated non-GMO Soybean Glycerides and Shea Butter Unsaponifiables to the vegan formulation.

100% vegetable alternative to Lanolin. Soybean glycerides and an unsaponifiable fraction of shea butter are combined to meet the need for a long lasting film-forming, moisturizing agent. This is in addition to Jojoba Oil and raw Shea Butter. The outcome of this change is in the post shave experience where it leaves the skin with a soft and silky feel, differentiated hydration and long lasting moisturizing agent.

Donkey Milk is not part of the composition of the vegan formulation.

Scent notes:

Bergamot, Basil, Lavender, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Oakmoss and a blend of musk over a background of soft, powdery notes. Bergaptene free Bergamot is used in the scent blend.

Does not contain coconut oil in the tallow version

    Man from Mayfair is my favorite barbershop scent. There’s something about it that makes me open it up and take a whiff at least once a day, whether I shave with it or not. The performance is top notch, which can be expected from Wholly Kaw, but this goes above and beyond, in my opinion. The lather explodes and provides all the cushion and glide you could want, and functions well at a very wide range of water added. This one’s a must-have for anyone who likes barbershop scents, or simply enjoys a superior shave soap. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

    I really enjoy this take on the barbershop scent. It’s refined, inviting and wholly satisfying. The soap base is superb and leaves my face feeling wonderful after the shave. I read some reviews saying the scent is on the weaker side. I would say it’s medium scented and does not overwhelm your cologne.

    Man from Mayfair has ruined all other barbershop scents for me. It is far superior in terms of scent, lather, and slickness. I could not recommend it enough.
