Breastmilk Preservation Powder sold in single or multiple packs of sachets, an inexpensive alternative to other powders on the market. You will need one sachet per client to preserve breastmilk or breastmilk substitute, and your clients only need to send 5ml breastmilk! This dust is now available from us and made in-house, using similar non-toxic ingredients to powders available on Etsy etc, in breastmilk DIY kits or from other makers. It’s always been our goal to create a community supporting other artists and this affordable and widely available powder will help you make your breastmilk jewellery less expensive for your customers.

The ingredients of our Breastmilk Preservation Powder is strictly confidential and secret. It absolutely must neither be ingested nor breathed in (wear PPE including gloves and respirator at all times and keep away from children and pets). In case of emergency all of the ingredients are found in food products apart from one, which is borax (NOT boric acid). Borax is found in food in many countries but is banned in others, it’s found in cosmetics and children’s slime. If accidentally ingested please contact emergency services or a healthcare provider immediately and inform them of the above. This is sold as a pigment, we are not required to give out ingredients.
The product is not intended for consumption or any other use other than for preserving breastmilk and breastmilk substitutes such as constituted formula, plant drinks (such as soy milk). The resulting preserved breastmilk is only intended for use in making jewellery and ornaments and again is not fit for human consumption. Please do not taste or smell the powder as the ingredients may irritate the nose and mouth. As a breastfeeding parent themself, Nikki mixes, packages and uses the powder daily using a dust mask and vinyl gloves, which are included in all of our DIY kits and more can be purchased from our Worldwide Sourcing Guides here.

Please be careful not to burn yourself when heating the milk, and keep appropriate fire extinguishing items nearby. If in doubt, contact your local fire department and always test your smoke alarms! Keep drying milk away from children, pets and curious spouses then store well once dried. Always label samples well for professional integrity, we recommend full name and unique order numbers!
Please note, these powders may occasionally leak in transit but this should not affect their use, there is more than enough powder in each sachet for 5ml milk (in fact, some customers only use half a sachet per preservation, not that we recommend this!). The single sachets are double bagged and multi-packs are triple bagged so if a small amount escapes from the packaging it should not cause problems. We have never had an issue sending these through customs as customs officials can easily see the powders are non-hazardous and not illegal. They are marked as breastmilk preservation powder on the customs information. If you have any questions please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch on our Facebook page Keepsaker Supplies (click here).
