Deer milk is the latest new ingredient to capture our attention. It’s the most nourishing milk of the bunch and offers a plethora of goodness for our skin.
Deer milk is scientifically proven to contain the highest levels of antioxidants, nutrients and anti-inflammatory agents than any other milk. You’ll find a lot of key vitamins in deer milk, such as vitamin A (AKA retinol), which provides regenerative properties to keep skin firm and healthy. And, for anyone who worries that natural ingredients can’t outperform those concocted in a lab, you’ll be happy to hear that the vitamin A found in deer milk is actually more effectively absorbed by the skin than synthetic vitamin A.
Other vitamins found in deer milk include vitamin B to improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture, vitamin D to boost skin cell growth and repair, and vitamin E to protect and prevent against premature skin ageing.
Additionally, deer milk is rich in minerals such as zinc, selenium, calcium, potassium and phosphorous, which help support skin health by encouraging skin cell repair and collagen production, as well as protecting skin against environmental stress.
Compared with other milks, deer milk outperforms them in many categories. It has the highest total fat and protein content than any other animal milk (read: it’s insanely nourishing), and more calcium, phosphorus and zinc than cow, sheep and goat milk.
Not bad for a natural ingredient!
