It's the perfect gift for any occasion: breast milk soap.
Hand soap made from breast milk is becoming a stylish luxury product in China. The craze can be traced back to a woman named Qi in Wuhan, which is in central China. As a new mother, she produced more milk than her baby could consume. So she stocked up 10 liters of it, bought a soap making kit off the internet, and produced a line of fancy soaps under the brand Ena's Soap. The Daily Mail reports:
There are currently close to 1,000 online outlets in China selling either breast milk soaps or soap-making kits.
Many of the breast milk soaps are shaped into flowers, hearts and Hello Kitty.
Ms Qi says that the soaps not only mark the first time a woman becomes a mother but is also a nice gift for friends.
A recipient of the gift, named only as Ms Ding, said: 'This is the most unique gift I've ever seen'.
