Eczema Care Soap
Goat Milk Soap for Eczema: Quick, Easy, Natural Relief
If you don’t suffer from eczema, you probably know somebody who does. Everyone's skin is different, and we certainly aren't claiming to cure eczema. Experts say that eczema is somehow related to digestive issues (be it allergies, sensitivities, etc.). However, by our own experience, and by the hundreds of customer reviews we receive all the time, it's safe to say that this soap is pretty special.*
“I tried the soap and it was absolutely amazing! Having eczema all of my life I have tried many remedies, but I wanted to especially send a note to share my experience with Bend Soap. It worked immediately and had my skin feeling great! I also tried it on my face after having a recent allergic reaction and the blemishes vanished IMMEDIATELY! Look forward to making more purchases (and already shared my story with my friends on Facebook and Twitter).” - Selvena Brooks
How Does Goat Milk Soap Help Relieve Eczema?
When our third son, Chance, developed itchy, bleeding eczema, we needed help, and fast. Read Chance's full story here and learn how Bend Soap Company was born. The secret to our limited ingredients lies behind the goat’s milk. This ingredient alone can do wonders for giving your skin the vitamins and minerals it craves. It coats your skin with a soft moisture barrier, leaving you feeling oh-so-smooth and soft. We packed the essential vitamins and nutrients of goat's milk into each bar of our goat milk soap. Here’s what makes it so good:
- Anti-Inflammatory: The fat molecules in goat's milk help reduce skin inflammation. As a natural moisturizer, goat milk cream soothes dry, sensitive skin while reducing inflammation.
- Heals Dry, Itchy Skin: The natural moisturizing properties in goat's milk can significantly reduce or eliminate symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. Goat milk soap offers relief for your skin the natural way. Goat milk soap does not dissolve the protective oils of your skin
- Essential Vitamins & Nutrients: The vitamins and minerals contained in goat’s milk, coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil deeply nourish the skin and restore healthy skin function. It’s like equipping the skin with the tools it needs to work properly.
NO Harsh Chemicals: People with sensitive skin know commercial products often make their symptoms worse. Goat milk soap is the remedy you’re looking for to moisturize and nourish your skin naturally with minimal ingredients and no harmful chemicals. It's extremely gentle and won’t irritate the most sensitive skin. Ideal for infants with eczema.*
“I happened across your soap this last Sunday at the Sisters, Oregon Craft Fair. I bought a couple bars hoping it would help with my 15 month old's skin. I noticed a difference after just one bath. I could NOT believe it. She's had moderate eczema since she was born and this is the first thing that has actually helped. I'm going to recommend it to all my friends with young kids and I will definitely be ordering more. Thank you so much for this product!!” - Kelli Martin
Chance’s Natural Eczema Treatment Routine
Using our nourishing goat milk soaps in place of other commercial soaps is the first step in dealing with eczema. All of our goat milk soap is made with the same nourishing formula, however, we recommend starting with our purest soaps (those that contain no additional scenting). The two bars of goat milk soap below are our varieties which do not contain any essential oils in them. We also have a line of goat milk soap that we recommend for those with Sensitive Skin that are also very soothing and gentle.
Unscented is great for those with very sensitive skin – babies, eczema, eczema babies, raw skin, etc. It is made of goat’s milk, coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil – that’s it! It's great at moisturizing, hydrating, repairing and nourishing skin.
|Oatmeal & Honey is just like our Unscented Goat Milk Soap with the addition of real honey and real oats. The oats have anti-itching and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin. The honey is also anti-inflammatory and extremely moisturizing.|
More Soothing Products
In addition to our bars of goat milk soap, try soaking in a warm bath using a handful or two of our Milk Bath. The milk and oils in the soap absorb into the skin while soaking while you are enjoying a relaxing and luxurious spa treatment. Finish your regime by rubbing our natural Goat Milk Lotion on any dry spots. Ahhh...
Milk Bath - Add a handful of the shredded soap to your bath water. Watch the water turn a milky white as you soak from head to toe. Dead skin cells easily slough off as the nourishing milk and oils soak into your skin. A luxurious experience all from your own tub!
Goat Milk Lotion - Applying this 100% all-natural Goat Milk Lotion is the icing on the cake for your skin. Filled with wonderful nourishing oils and goat's milk, this product works to seal in the moisture for all day or all night relief.
What's in Our Soap?
When you have eczema, it’s crucial that you avoid harsh chemical ingredients such as alcohols, dyes, detergents, and synthetic preservatives (to only name a few). When applied to the skin, these ingredients can irritate, dry out, and slowly damage the skin over time. Here at Bend Soap Company, we’re proud to offer our customers small batch, handcrafted goat milk soap products that are made using four main ingredients.
Our goat milk soap contains four natural ingredients:
- Fresh, raw goat’s milk (from our own goats!)
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- Red Palm oil
That’s it! The secret to our limited ingredients lies behind the goat’s milk. This ingredient alone can do wonders for giving your skin the vitamins and minerals it craves. It coats your skin with a soft moisture barrier, leaving you feeling oh-so-smooth and soft. We packed the essential vitamins and nutrients of goat's milk into each bar of our goat milk soap.
Eczema refers to any sort of dermatitis – skin inflammation. The most severe and chronic form of eczema is atopic dermatitis. This disease is characterized by irritated, sensitive skin which is often red and dry. Severe eczema can even blister up, weep or peel. The itching can be so intense and unrelenting it causes the victim to scratch until he bleeds. We know - that’s what would happen with Chance.
- Eczema affects over 30 million Americans.
- Eczema is more common in children than adults.
- 65% of eczema cases are diagnosed in children under 1 year old.
- 90% of eczema cases are diagnosed in children 5 and under.
- Symptoms may lessen as children age but may never go away altogether.
The exact causes of eczema have yet to be positively identified. It is suspected that eczema is the result of an overactive immune system attacking allergens in the skin. Some people react when they come in contact with certain substances. Regardless of the cause, one thing is certain – eczema is a nightmare.
The treatment often prescribed for eczema is a dermatological cream of some sort. However, many people with eczema experience only a short spell of relief, or worse, they find that the cream makes their eczema worse!
Why Goat Milk Soap?
Many commercial remedies for eczema are made of harsh chemicals that dry out and irritate the skin, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (which is also used to clean garage floors and degrease engines.) Since synthetic eczema remedies rarely have any lasting effects, many eczema sufferers are looking for an all natural eczema treatment to help relieve their symptoms without any negative side effects.
*Disclaimer: We here at Bend Soap Company do not intend to diagnose any skin conditions or offer that our soaps will "cure" any skin conditions. The causes of eczema, psoriasis (and other skin issues) are not completely known. We also do not intend to say that our products will cure eczema. As far as we know, our soaps have only been known to help ease the symptoms and irritations caused by eczema – and in many cases make these symptoms disappear. Per our own experience, and per others that have used our soap (and their testimonies and reviews), we recommend trying it and seeing for yourself.
