1. Etsy Breastmilk diy preservation kit, cornstarch powder scam.
Hi Mummies. We have received many mothers’ request to rectify their diy breastmilk jewellery that they made less than 1 year ago as it is turning brown with many bubbles in it.

As they no longer producing breastmilk. There is really nothing much we can do until one customer kept the preserve breastmilk powder and see if we can use it to make a keepsake for her. We attempted to work with the breastmilk powder that she “preserved” to see if we can create something for the mummy. We rehydrate the powder and observe it under a microscope and we found out there are no breastmilk protein remains at all.

Upon understanding the making method. It is basically mixing your breastmilk with cornstarch and cooking it over a stove until powder remains. Basically you will cook, destroy and evaporate all the breastmilk that you added to the cornstarch. Leaving behind only cornstarch to make your precious keepsake by mixing it with resin.

Cornstarch when kept dry will remain white indefinitely. But due to Singapore’s humidity. The cornstarch being encased in resin will still discolour after some time.

We don’t understand why such unethical makers exist. It’s basically a scam to make mothers wear cornstarch believing it’s their own breastmilk jewellery. We deeply condemned such behaviour and hope that this will help to warn mummies and their friends to avoid any “breastmilk preservation kit that involves powder”.

Please share this with your friends to protect them from this latest scam.

2. 满月金 FULL MONTH GOLD & 百日金 100 DAYS GOLD
Back in ancient China when the mortality rate of babies was high, it is considered good luck for parents when a baby reaches their full month or 100days. In many cultures, gold is traditionally known to symbolize, good luck, prosperity and even used to ward off evil; due to it's everlasting properties. It is customary for parents, friends and relatives to gift gold to bless the baby with everlasting health and a prosperous future.
Infused with mum's own breastmilk, our Full Month Gold & 100 Days Gold Collection marries all the well wishes with the love of a mother, making it the most meaningful Full Month Gold only available at Keepsake by Ryo.
Also did you know Keepsake by Ryo is the first Breastmilk Jewellery maker that uses solid gold and real diamonds? Gold is an inert element, hence by nature it does not react (tarnish) to any other elements in the periodic table giving it a huge advantage over other jewellery making materials such as silver and stainless steel. It is industry recognized for its ability to resist tarnish and is widely used for purpose like engagement rings, wedding bands and etc. Singapore having an extremely humid climate, only solid gold can last the test of time.

4. Fake Breast milk?
Can you tell the difference between the 2 charms? Thanks to our Chemist, we found that some makers use coloured dyes instead of real breastmilk to pass off as preserved breastmilk. As a mother, I can only imagine the pain if I found that my precious breastmilk jewellery made so many years ago is nothing but a scam. By then, I will no longer have any breastmilk left to make it from ethical sources.
At Keepsake by Ryo, we engaged a chemist to formulate a proprietary breastmilk preservation method so that your breastmilk keepsake will not rot and decay over time. We are the first to do it and our secret method has never been leaked. Since our innovation, many other keepsake makers claim to be able to do so in the matter of days. If you have tried to DIY your own breastmilk keepsake at home, you would have found that signs of decay will show in a couple of weeks or months. 

To authenticate our products, we conducted workshops so that mothers can make their own keepsake and visually see that only your own breastmilk is used in the making of your keepsake.

7. Own, Unique Breastmilk Preservation Techniques
Did you know Keepsake By Ryo actually engaged a chemist to create a breastmilk preservation technique unique only to us? This is to ensure that your product will not turn yellow or black due to decay and your precious keepsake will last the test of time. This technique ensures that your jewellery will become a stable chemical compound. Thanks to this technique, we are able to use both fresh and expired breastmilk.

Beware of keepsake DIY kits, that uses paraffin wax or poor quality resin in an attempt to earn quick buck. Such DIY kits, usually do not come with any form of preservation for your breastmilk and will turn yellowish or blackish within 3 weeks and it will only get worse as time goes by. DIY kits using paraffin wax and low quality resin are extremely dangerously as they produce toxic chemicals when heated. Paraffin wax is use as the main ingredient for soap and due to it's soft texture a glass globe or casing is usually provided for such DIY kits. Below is an experiment done using DIY kits in comparison to our product and the result speaks for itself.

Perimeter of experiment:
  • All casts use the same breastmilk sample, expressed in December 2015.
  • None of the DIY kits we purchased came with any air bubble removing equipment so we didn’t use our machines in the process out of fairness. (hence the uneven charms!)
  • All charms were casted at the same time, using the same molds for fairness.
  • All completed charms were then placed beside a closed window to simulate Singapore’s weather conditions.

9. Customized Charm Cores
Some people ask us why we customize our own charm cores when we can purchase them from open sources like Aliexpress and Taobao? This is because we noticed that charm cores from open sources tend to tarnish faster. They also have a tendency to drop off when rubbed against your bracelet or bangle due to its small size and light weight.

So, we customized our own charm cores to ensure its quality, also making it bigger and heavier to prevent it from dropping off or tarnishing easily. Notice that from the front our charm cores are bigger and shinier and from the back the open source charm cores are actually hollow on the inside.

Crafted from surgical steel, our charm cores are designed to pass the test of time and Singapore's hot, humid weather. We are also the only maker that provide charm cores in 6 different variations, Silver Surgical Steel, Rose Gold Surgical Steel, Gold Surgical Steel, 18k White Gold, 18k Rose Gold and 18k Gold.

We are committed to continually working on improving our resin quality to improve the standard of our work.

We understand that the long waiting period can be daunting and may cause anxiety to some mummies.

At Keepsake by Ryo we do our best to reduce the waiting period and have an average waiting period of 3-8 weeks from the date of receiving your inclusions.
