Why You Need To Switch to Goats Milk Soap

Blog | 0 comments

When we were first experimenting with making soap, like most people when you’re discovering a new hobby, we stuck to the simplest of ingredients. In the case of soap making, it was olive oil, coconut oil, and alkaline.

We learned, however, that soap-making can be very forgiving as long as you use relatively precise measurements for your ingredients. The more batches we made, the more…creative our ingredient list became.

Oatmeal, honey, activated charcoal, coffee, beer, and exotic oils all started being incorporated into our soaps–nothing in our kitchen was safe!

One ingredient stood out above the rest, however, in delivering a soap experience that was second to none.

Goat Milk.

We got turned on to adding Goat Milk into our soap batches after constantly seeing it referenced in soap-making forums, blogs, and YouTube videos. We gave it a shot–and we’re glad we did!

Our Goat Milk Soap was incredibly rich and creamy and was far less stripping than other soap batches we made. Best of all, our friends and family (our initial product testers) loved it!

When you notice a clear and obvious trend, you tend to research it further to learn what exactly makes it special. When we delved deeper into the benefits of Goat Milk soap, it became clear that Goat Milk really is a super ingredient in soap.

Here’s what we found.

The Health Benefits of Goat Milk Soap

Goat Milk’s naturally occurring and unique saturated fat properties make it an ideal base (and our #1 ingredient) for soap. The result is a creamy lather that gently cleanses the skin without stripping it like synthetic-laden beauty bars. Check it out:

because it is made with naturally occurring fats, an alkaline (what actually converts liquid fats into a solid), and of course Goats Milk. That means no “lather-boosting agents” in our products–mitigating common skin conditions like eczema.

Goat Milk Soap is a Natural Exfoliant.

Goat Milk is rich in lactic acid, a natural fatty acid that has been shown to gently remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin to appear more radiant. This exfoliating property has also been found to help mitigate hyperpigmentation, scarring, and age spots–sweet!

Goat Milk Soap Fights Acne

Not only does lactic acid have gentle exfoliating powers, but it helps to unclog skin pores by removing dirt, bacteria, and excess sebum.

Goat Milk Soap is Full of Nutrients

Besides fatty acids that help protect and moisturize your skin, Goat Milk is full of cholesterol, which is part of the actual membrane of the skin and keeps it elastic and strong. Goat Milk is also a high natural source of Vitamin A, which has potent anti-aging properties and is often used in the cosmetic industry in creams or serums to combat fine lines and blemishes.

Artificial colors, added chemical lathering agents, dangerous antibacterial pharmaceuticals, and cheap fats that may actually strip your skin of its natural moisture, all add up to an unhealthy daily practice that many of us unconsciously participate in.

So there you have it.
