It's quite interesting to
look back in history and to read that the beautiful queen of Egypt
bathed in fermented milk and that her skin was so beautiful that we
still talk about it.
We learn from history for
the present and the future. If rich people can afford something that
others cannot then it's not much help for someone who has only a
little pocket money.
With fermented milk every one can afford a beauty treatment for the
skin which is much, much cheaper than a commercial skin product,
where advertising and packaging is the highest part of the price you
pay. The product itself costs, in most cases, only a very small
percentage of the retail price.
