Foaming Bath Milks

Foaming Bath Milks

There is a new spa product taking the bathing world by storm. It is rich and ultra-luxurious. What is this secret I am about to reveal? Bath Milks…you heard me…bath milks. Interestingly enough, this “new” and “secret” thing has been around for a hot minute. Bathing in milk is older than ‘gasp’ soap. Milk baths have been part of beauty and relaxation rituals for centuries. It is said that Cleopatra bathed in donkey’s milk and honey. Queen Elizabeth I bathed in milk to keep her skin looking youthful. Broadway star Anna Held reportedly bathed in milk every day and even scheduled photo shoots of it being delivered to her.

We’ve all heard the saying, “milk does a body good”, but surely, they meant IN your body not On your body right? Wrong…well technically yeah that is right, but milk is also good on your body too.  Milk has long been associated with hydration and beauty. We as humans find milk innately comforting. While scientific research is lacking, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence as to why milk baths are so popular.

Milk contains lactic acid which behaves like a mild alpha hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate dead skin cells leaving softer rejuvenated skin. Milk baths also replenish dry skin with extra hydration and moisture. The fats, proteins, and vitamins in milk are conditioning. Soaking in a tub of milk leaves the skin feeling silky and smooth. For sunburn or poison ivy relief it is rumored that a soak in bath milk will help decrease itching and discomfort. There are a number of studies available that suggest bathing in milk can help reduce skin irritations caused by eczema and psoriasis. As with anything, you should always consult you doctor or dermatologist first before trying something new.

What was once available only in the most exquisite and high-end spas can now be picked up in at any drug store or mall. However, just like anything else in the world of bath and skin care, ingredients matter. We spent a very long time researching and formulating our recipe for bath milk. As someone who crafts handmade soap, I wanted our bath milks to meet or exceed your expectations, and that bar is set pretty high (haha get it “bar” as in soap haha). We create natural bath milks using only top shelf ingredients from reputable distributors. Each bottle contains powdered milks with a bonus. We also add Epsom salts in our recipe to soothe tired and sore muscles. Fragrance options are endless, but currently we offer rose, chamomile, lavender, eucalyptus, oatmeal & honey, sweet orange, and jasmine. Future bath milks on the horizon will include patchouli, ylang ylang, and palo santo.

As stated above not all bath milks are created equal, or natural, and not all things are considered safe for all skin types. If skin irritation presents or persists, please discontinue use. If you have an extreme milk allergy, I would not recommend a milk bath. I do have a coconut milk recipe in the bath milk line that may be better suited for vegans. For my female customers, not all vaginas are created equally, if being submerged in warm bath water is not a good environment for your lady parts than I would suggest you avoid bath milks.

If relaxation with a touch of luxury is what you seek, I strongly suggest you give our Foaming Bath Milks a try. But if you want to walk like an Egyptian…search The Bangles on YouTube…you’re welcome!!
