Breast Milk Soap

Soap That's Made From Your Own Breast Milk: Ga Ga or Gag?

Just when we thought we'd seen it all . . . now there's a way to have your own breast milk turned into soap. Seriously! Etsy seller Tin Roof Soap Co. calls the stuff Sweet Susu Soap. Susu refers to breasts, milk, and nursing in Malaysian, and the milk is used in place of water in the special concoction. Other ingredients include olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, shea butter, and essential oils.

To have a loaf of custom soap made, you just ship a stash of your frozen breast milk (between 12-16 oz.) to the seller, and she'll whip up a one-of-a-kind batch — about 60 oz. worth for $60 — and send it back to you. "I originally made this soap to preserve the bond between baby and breast — to save one bar indefinitely for my daughter so she will have some of me with her always and as a testament to the love and life I gave to her in those early months (read: sore nipples, plugged ducts, biting, pinching, etc.)," says Tin Roof Soap's Sara James.

We're dying to know what you think of this one!
