Donkey milk soap
is the latest beauty secret
Location: Amman, Jordan
Salma Zu'bi founded the Atan soap brand
by experimenting with fresh donkey milk
after reading about its benefits
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) FOUNDER OF ATAN SOAP COMPANY, SALMA ZU'BI, SAYING:
"Why did we choose donkey milk? Donkey milk has a lot of vitamins and certain nutrients that are good for the skin. This isn't something I'm saying myself, this is known in the international community, certain studies show that it has as many benefits as breast milk."
Salma’s soap features other organic ingredients
// like olive oil,
and shea butter //
Her company is still in development
but she hopes her soap
will soon hit the shelves
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) FOUNDER OF THE ATAN SOAP COMPANY, SALMA ZU'BI, SAYING:
"After several trials, we have shown that this milk is excellent and that it leads to the results we are hoping for, such as delaying the signs of aging, helping cure some skin diseases like eczema - it doesn't cure it completely, but it helps. When we first started out, we distributed 160 bars of soap to people who would like to try it. If you use our product and it doesn't help you then it definitely won't harm you, 100 percent, because all of its ingredients are organic and it doesn't have any preservatives."
