If you are still wondering as to why are we only using raw milk in the skin care routine? It is because raw milk contains skin friendly enzymes. The moment it is heated, those skin friendly enzymes are destroyed, which in turn alters the fat and protein structure. Pasteurization therefore, is recommended only for oral consumption as it aids in digestion. So, make sure to opt for raw milk only while using for the skin care routine.
