Discover the benefits of deer milk skincare

World-first skincare, made in New Zealand

If you're wondering whether deer milk is good for your skin, just ask Natalie Smith, marketing director of New Zealand deer milk skincare company Kōtia. She shares how Kōtia's skincare range was born from an unexpected discovery from a deer farm milker, who found that her dry, work-hardened hands became softer and younger from regular contact with deer milk.
There are many benefits to incorporating deer milk skincare into your routine. Natalie explains how scientists have analysed the unique ingredient, finding that "deer milk has the highest level of antioxidants, nutrients, and anti-inflammatory agents than any other milk used in skin care".
"Packed naturally with vitamins A, B, D, and E as well as zinc, iodine, and protein, when combined with other actives you've got a pretty potent combo to help repair and improve skin while helping prevent future damage", she says.

The skincare incorporates two unique deer milk peptide complexes. Clinical trials have highlighted the benefits of these peptide complexes on the skin, including an increase in moisture levels, a boost in elasticity, and a reduction in fine lines, pigmentation and dark circles.
The proof is also found in the positive reviews of Kōtia customers seeking solutions to their skincare concerns. They say that after using Kōtia skincare, their complexion is noticeably glowing, patches of dry skin are eradicated, and the quality of their skin has noticeably improved.
