Spa that offers ‘breast milk’ treatments vandalized


BOULDER, Colo. — A spa in Boulder that uses breast milk for some of its skin treatments seems to be the target of at least one vandal.

Mud Facial Bar offers breast milk facials as part of its services.

“I mean, of course it’s controversial,” owner Samantha Sowa said. But she also said it’s more popular than one might think. “The breast milk is really great for acne, acne scars, eczema, sun burns, psoriasis even.”

The spa is new to Boulder. It opened in April on Broadway Street.

Earlier this month, they were shocked to see their store window vandalized. “It was just cracked right in the center … kind of ‘spidered-out’.”

Beyond that, the owners said they don’t know what happened.

They don’t have cameras so they have no suspects. And while they aren’t certain of the motive, the crack came right on a window sign advertising their breast milk facials.

“I was shocked. I had no words. I felt personally victimized by it.”

It was not only an expensive repair, but one that hit them on a personal level. “It’s a small business.  We put everything– our entire livelihood into this business.”

“We are good people.  We are not here to hurt anybody.  We are here to help everybody.”

The owners said the breast milk they use in their spa comes from a woman who is on a strict organic and vegan diet. They said their milk is screened, certified and safe to use.
