8 Reasons to Choose Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath

Goat milk baths are great for your skin, but who has, or can afford raw, fresh goat milk? Instead, draw yourself a relaxing bath using our Milk Bath — the milk bather’s economical choice that’s a relaxing treat for the body and senses. A Bend Soap Company Milk Bath is more than just water in a tub, and the secret lies in our star ingredient: goat’s milk. Loaded with natural moisturizers, vitamins, and enzymes, goat’s milk is the secret to keeping everyone’s skin clean, hydrated, and healthy. Even Cleopatra was renowned throughout history for her glowing and youthful looking skin which she proudly attributed to her frequent milk baths!

Today’s post goes a step deeper to explore one of our most popular Milk Bath scents to date: Oatmeal & Honey. Combining the rich properties found naturally inside of oatmeal and honey, this special Milk Bath formula makes for an all around perfect healing and restorative bath experience. And if we haven’t convinced you yet, here are eight reasons to choose Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath for your next soak in the tub.

#1 Best Soap for Eczema

You’ve probably already read the testimonials, but our Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath can do wonders for those suffering from eczema. Eczema is a chronic condition causing dry, itchy skin which often leads to painful cracking and bleeding. This allergic skin reaction affects millions of people across the world, and many people go through trial and error trying to find a hygiene product that can offer them some type of relief.
We tried everything to help our son Chance’s eczema, and it wasn’t until we started soaking him in Milk Baths that we saw positive results. Within one week of soaking him in our Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath formula, his eczema was completely gone. And while we definitely don’t claim that our Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath is a cure for eczema, our son, and many others like him, have experienced relief thanks to the natural moisturizers and healing properties in goat milk soap.

“My toddlers have very sensitive, eczema prone skin. Even some other natural products have given them horrible eczema breakouts that are painful and oozy. I had really high hopes for this and was NOT disappointed. My 19-month-old had a nasty diaper rash when this arrived and I soaked her in a bath with a handful the following morning. That night, the rash was only half as bad as it had been that morning! It was completely healed by on next night after just that 1 bath and no other products. I'm very impressed and have shared this with everyone I know, including my mommy group. Thank you, Bend Soap!!” - Jessica J.


#2 Great for Sensitive Skin

Do you find that your skin is sensitive to chemicals found in many commercial products like body wash, laundry detergent, and even perfumes? The natural soothing properties found inside our Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath are great for helping replenish sensitive skin, leaving it moisturized and ready for the day.

#3 Locks in Moisture

Most commercial products strip your skin of natural oils leaving your skin dry and undernourished. If you don’t believe us, just look at the list of ingredients on the back of any bottle of lotion you have around your house -- have you ever thought it was odd that alcohol (an agent that zaps our skin of moisture) is one of the main ingredients found in a product that is supposed to replenish your skin? Oils, shea butter, and the natural fat molecules in goat’s milk coat your skin with a luxurious moisture barrier leaving your skin smooth and supple. Just one soak in our Milk Bath formula will make a noticeable difference in your skin.


#4 Eliminates Dead Skin Cells

Tired of dry, flaky skin? Goat milk can help. The alpha hydroxyl acids in goat’s milk break apart dead skin cells allowing your dead skin to slough off with ease while you sit back and relax in the tub, taking care of all of the hard work for you. But the works not done then -- the additional vitamins and minerals found in our Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath go to work protecting your skin against free radicals, too!

#5 Reveals Younger Looking (and Healthier) Skin

As the natural enzymes found in our Oatmeal & Honey Milk Bath remove dead skin cells, you’ll be left with skin that’s noticeably moisturized from head to toe. Because the natural enzymes from the goat's milk are backed by the gently exfoliating bits of oatmeal, working together to reveal new, younger skin, the moisture, vitamins, and minerals are now able to soak into your skin, giving it the nutrients that it’s silently been asking for.

#6 Packed with 3 Ingredients Your Skin Craves the Most
