Wearing Milk rather than drinking it, in the form of taking milk bath, what better can we get out of Science and technology!!!


We have been hearing from our mothers since our early infancy, the usefulness and advantages of drinking milk. But we never bothered to have it just because many of us don't like it. Anyhow, the technology has benefited us in the way by providing us the alternative to extract milk's advantages without actually drinking it. We can wear milk in the form of milk fabrics and it itself makes us feel better. Milk protein fabric is made out of skimmed milk. This Fabric contains around fifteen types of amino acid extracts that helps in the nourishment of the skin and makes it healthier. Milk Protein fabric is an ideal blend of nature, science and technology that has benefits of natural as well as synthetic fibre. It has a glossy appearance as of Mulberry silk.

It can either be naturally spun alone or blended with cashmere, silk, spun silk, cotton, wool, ramie and other fibers to make fabrics. The fabric helps in keeping away allergies and wrinkles. It is bloated and fragile in nature with restrained moulds which makes it soft and subtle. It helps to absorb moisture since it is hygroscopic and has vertical fibres with regular conduits providing ample space for the moisture to pass from fibre to fibre. It is an environment friendly product minus harmful chemicals and runoffs. This fiber is regarded as a naturally healthy fibre by association of milk; however, for valid certification International Ecological Textile Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Authentication approved it in April, 2004.

Chemical Process

During the First World War, when the Germans were looking out for some newer sources of fabric, it was then when they discovered milk's potential for cloth. They observed that when milk dries out it makes a hard film. There's a possibility for fibers out of that. After skimming the milk, it is curdled and the proteins are alienated and intensified into a glutinous solution. That solution is forced through a duct and is then toughened into hard fiber that can be spun around a reel. 100 pounds of skimmed milk is required to make 3 pounds of milk fibre. This is the reason considered for its low popularity.

The elements of the fibre include casein proteins, which are extracted from the milk itself. It is feigned by spiraling protein solution through bio-engineering procedure. This liquid is apt for soggy spinning procedure in the course of which the ultimate imminent textile is prepared. Whilst spinning, a solution is used by producers and micro-zinc ion is implanted in the fibre to make it bacteriostatic and strong.
