Mum sells soap made from her own BREAST MILK

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

A new soap made from breast milk that claims to cure nappy rash is prov­ing pop­u­lar in China.

The soap was in­vented by a new mum who found her baby son couldn’t take breast milk.

In­stead of wast­ing it, she de­cided to make soap from it so he would still get some of the skin­care ben­e­fits.

The soaps are prov­ing pop­u­lar on China’s an­swer to eBay and Ama­zon, Taobao.

With over 500 mil­lion reg­is­tered users, Taobao has some un­usual items.

The soap ven­dor writes that her cre­ation is good for deep­cleans­ing adult skin but also helps pre­vent nappy rash on ba­bies.

She has moulded the soaps into shapes likes ted­dies, rab­bits, tor­toises and fish.

She said: “I used to pour it all down the drain, but it seemed such a waste.”

NHS stud­ies show that breast milk (taken in the usual man­ner) im­proves a baby’s chances of not de­vel­op­ing skin con­di­tions like eczema.

Ex­perts also say breast­fed ba­bies have less chance of di­ar­rhoea and vom­it­ing, fewer chest and ear in­fec­tions and less like­li­hood of be­com­ing obese.
