Why does it seem like zits always pop up before an important meeting or a special event? And while you can find aisles of skincare products at the store, why is it that there never seems to be a product that helps clear up acne without drying out your skin? To make matters worse, these acne products often contain a concoction of chemicals that can potentially harm your skin. Scrubs, face-washes, treatments and expensive gels have all been dedicated to keeping our pores clean and skin smooth. But do they really help?
Luckily, we’ve come across a healthy alternative that helps combat acne AND keeps your skin moisturized. Believe it or not, but a single bar of our goat milk soap could be the #1 thing missing from your skincare regime — it contains the natural properties necessary to give your skin the moisture and protection it needs while fighting painful acne symptoms.
What Causes Acne?
At a high level, acne results when your pores become blocked by oil, bacteria, dirt, and dead skin cells causing inflammation. Acne occurs at a deeper, more painful level when your skin repeatedly experiences pimples or zits. If left untreated, dark spots and permanent scars may develop.
Acne can also be caused by other issues including hormone imbalances in adult men and women. As noted by MindBodyGreen,
“Hormonal acne is a great warning sign that’s showing you that your body needs some support and attention, but it’s not a curse. With the right tender care, your skin and hormones can find their way back to balance.”
Other variables such as excessive sweating, diet, rest, and even your water intake all play into the overall health and appearance of your skin and may also be to blame when your pores become clogged with dirt and sweat.

If commercial soaps and acne cleansers are not offering you relief, natural goat milk soap might be able to help.
Compared to the harsh chemicals in commercial skincare products that can harm your skin and cause unwanted side effects, goat milk soap has natural ingredients that work with your skin to keep it balanced, hydrated, and clear. We’ve had a ton of customers tell us that after they made the switch from generic acne cleanser to using our goat milk soap as a face wash, they never looked back (and their skin has never looked better!).

Check Out What Our Customers Have to Say
Don’t just take our word for it. We love hearing stories from our customers about how goat milk soap helped clear up their acne problems! Here are a few testimonials people have shared with us:
“I Love the Tea Tree Goat Milk Soap and Oatmeal & Honey Goat Milk Soap. I'll be 40 this year and have always had oily blemish prone skin. At the suggestion of a friend, I finally tried goats milk soap and have no idea why I didn't try it sooner!! All my life I've tried many different products specifically geared towards oily/acne prone skin with okay results. I will NEVER go back to using harsh over the counter facial washes again!! I love how the soap makes my skin feel and am now having my teenage children use it as a preventative measure. I've tried other brands of goats milk soap with success, but your product does not burn if I get some in my eyes. I also love the smell of the soap!! I will continue to be a customer!! Thanks for a wonderful product.” - Posted by Carrie
“I've been trying to find a product that works for my acne prone skin, and this definitely worked. I love the way it feels on my face and how clean I feel! I love having products where I can say what's in it. Amazing product and I can't wait to purchase more!” - Posted by Amy Burzdak

We started making our goat milk soap to help get rid of our sons' eczema (which went away after just a few days of using our soap) but have had tons of people report how much it has helped clear up their acne. Of course, we aren't doctors, and we don't claim to cure any disease, but our all-natural products have worked wonders for countless people.
From eczema to psoriasis, rashes to acne, we have customers who are raving about how our all-natural goat milk soap has helped improve the overall look, feel, and health of their skin.
