South Korean pharmaceutical company Yuhan has forged a deal with New Zealand milk provider Pāmu, which will supply deer milk for a cosmetics range.
Said to be the first time New Zealand deer milk has been used in the beauty industry, Yuhan has created a range of cosmetics using the ingredient, which include a serum and a moisturizer.
Set to be sold in New Origin stores across South Korea as of early next year, a Pāmu farm technologist discovered that the deer milk had anecdotal qualities.
Pāmu Chief Executive Steve Carden said, “This is a very exciting partnership for Pāmu in terms of securing future opportunities for deer milk.
“It is incredibly important that we partner with strategic companies like Yuhan, who are committed to research and development and the commercialisation of products containing unique ingredients such as deer milk.”
