Introducing Wholly Kaw's first Donkey Milk offering in the tallow version of the soap.
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. 

Top notes: Aromatic fougere, enhanced sparkling citrus notes, nuances of geranium, lavender, and mint supported by sensual patchouli, tonka beans and coumarin Lavender, Bergamot, Neroli, Petitgrain

Middle notes: Oakmoss, Cedarwood, Tonka Bean, Ambergris*
Base notes: Guaiacwood, Agarwood, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Labdanum and Musk

*synthetic version of ambergris is used.

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.

Made with high quality ingredients including donkey milk, castor oil, kokum butter, cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, soybean glycerides, shea butter unsaponifiables for added post shave benefits. Please refer the ingredients for more information.

Result: produce a cushiony and protective lather with glide and consistency. Provides glide and cushion for more than one pass – With the Grain (WTG), Across the Grain (XTG) and Against the Grain (ATG). Works well with or without a pre-shave preparation.

It’s a soft soap and less chalky and can be mashed into a cup or a shaving mug for loading of the brush. The soap is slick and the enables the razor to glide on your face or other shaving area. The cushiony lather provides protection for the skin from the sharp blade or razor while shaving. It can be lathered using palm, bowl or face lather after loading the brush.

It comes in a 6 oz plastic jar containing 4 oz of shaving soap leaving enough room in the jar for easy loading of the brush.

A really excellent soap with great performance.The fragrance is decent,not so present as at the Fougere Bouquet. The sliding characteristics are similar from the new Glissant Formel from B&M,the answer is spectacularly! The scent, however, didn't wow me on this one. It's powdery and warm with a bit of incense. It's clean and pleasant but not such a beautiful fragrance as the Fougere Bouquet.

I was really looking forward to this "Donkey Milk" and tallow soap. It was my first Wholly Kaw soap, performance was great, I don't think it's worth the premium price over a regular good tallow soap but it provides a good shave.The scent was not to my liking and I know that's subjective, but Monaco Royale smells like a generic laundry or bath soap. The scent knocks off a couple stars.

This soap is worth the little extra money. Donkey milk does make a difference in slickness and post shave feel. I would put this easily in my top 3 lathers - I am very happy to have it, and I will get the matching toner at some point as well.

Wholly Kaw – Monaco Royale – Donkey Milk & Tallow Shaving Soap, 4oz Jar” is another excellent Wholly Kaw offering. I lent this to a co-worker and have not gotten it back for 2 weeks. Need I say more? I ordered the aftershave toner to match the scent.
