Ashley White, a 31-year-old mother of two children, has been making soap from her breast milk, a product all her family members use.
She started making the soap after she gave birth to her baby in April. Ashley took a cue from mothers after seeing them do the same thing, Sun UK reports.
Ashley, her husband, Paul, and daughters Mylee and Mia have all been using the soap and they all love how it nurtures their skin. She said:
"It was a struggle at first as Mia wouldn’t latch and my milk wasn’t coming in, but when it did I wanted to look into other ways of using my milk.
"My milk coming in was a huge relief so I expressed quite a bit and built up a stash in the freezer,” she spoke about the process."

Prior to making the soap, she said she learned breast milk is a great facial product for eczema, a condition her daughter, Mylee, suffers from.
In making the soap, she uses a microwave to melt glycerine before adding some breast milk and other important oils.
Now that she has a full stock of the soap, she is looking at starting a business with the product after receiving positive online. Whenever she launches, she is looking at selling for £3 (R63,50) or £4 (R84,50) per bar.
