Mum says she makes £82k from bizarre ventures
A mother has claimed she made six figures selling soaps made from breast milk.
Taylor Robinson uses a combination of thawed, donated, and expired milk. She then mixes the milk with various oils.
The 31-year-old makes custom orders, which see other moms ship their breast milk to her bespoke shop from around the world.
The idea came to her two years ago while breastfeeding son Leo with her friend who asked about the ingredient in a bar of soap.
The mother-of-two earned £82,000 ($100,000) and sold the soaps for £11.50 ($14) a bar, or £82 ($100) for a full batch.
According to news agency Jam Press, the health benefits of breast milk include reducing redness, oiliness, acne, sensitivity and itching.
“Reactions range from extreme disgust to outright admiration,” Robinson, of Jackson, Ohio, told NeedToKnow.online.
She added, “It’s such a beautiful part of motherhood that goes into our soaps.”
“It seems like the older and much younger generations are usually disgusted by that. But millennials and Gen-Z know how great breast milk is.”
“When my girlfriend asked me to make her one, I thought it was a bit strange at first.
“It was weird that she wanted to use my breast milk, but after reading about it I realized how amazing she is and went for it.”
Robinson started her business in 2020 with just £165 ($200). In early 2021, she decided to add the quirky beauty product to her range.
She credits the quirky ingredient for the success of her company, Leo Jude Soap Co—named after her three-year-old son.
