Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much goat milk is in each bar of soap?
Fresh goat milk is the star of each and every bar of our goat milk soap! In fact, over 26% of every bar of goat milk soap consists of farm-fresh, raw goat's milk. More details on our natural ingredients can be found on our website here.
Q: Will I have an odor or sweat with the deodorant?
Our Natural dDeodorant has proven to be very beneficial for those struggling with odor and trying to find a natural deodorant. Our deodorants are not antiperspirant, so they will not stop you from sweating, but they will stop the stink. Switching to natural deodorants may cause a rash or irritation while your body eliminates the bacteria held inside by antiperspirants, as noted on our popular “Switching to Natural Deodorant” page. Typically, these reactions subside and are followed by smooth, clear armpits. If reactions continue to occur, a baking soda free deodorant may be a better option for sensitive skin. I will attach a couple links for you that go into more detail about our deodorants and the process of switching to them. Let us know if this helps and if you have any other questions, we're always happy to help! For more information on how to switch to our natural deodorant, check out this blog post.
Q: What products do you recommend for eczema?
We do not and cannot make any medical claims, give medical advice, or claim that our products cure eczema, but we’re happy to pass along our suggestions. Eczema is a complicated skin issue and there can be many causes so we recognize switching to all-natural products isn't always going to do the trick. However, many people have found our all-natural skincare products to be more soothing than alternative skincare products and many of our customers have found relief for their eczema with our products.
We recommend our Unscented or Oatmeal & Honey goat milk soaps, as neither of these bars contains any essential oils and are very gentle on delicate skin types. Adding a few handfuls of our milk bath to a tub of warm water and then soaking for 10-15 minutes is another great idea to consider so that your skin can really absorb the nutrients. After cleansing, we always recommend applying the Unscented Goat Milk Lotion to seal in moisture and keep the skin moisturized all day long. And for those really irritated, dry or raw spots, try an application of our Soothing Salve. The calendula and chamomile extracts in the salve are known for their calming and healing properties. Together, they help combat against redness and relax irritated skin. The non-GMO coconut oil is full of vitamin E and antioxidants to moisturize and soothe all types of skin while contributing to the smooth and creamy texture you’ll find in our salve. It gently softens and moisturizes even the most delicate, irritated skin without any stinging or burning sensation. You can find all the products before mentioned on our Best for Eczema page here: https://www.bendsoap.com/collections/best-soap-eczema
Q: Do your products help with other conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, keratosis pilaris and rosacea, too?
While we do not and cannot make any medical claims, give medical advice, or claim that our products cure skin conditions, we have heard from many of our customers with various skin conditions that they have gotten results from using our products. Each conditioner is unique and there can be many explanations as to what is causing skin irritation, so we recognize that our suggestions won’t work for everyone. However, many people with psoriasis, dermatitis, keratosis pilaris, rosacea and other conditions have found powerful relief with the use of our products. You might want to check out any of the products we have listed on our Best for Sensitive Skin Collection Page. These options are all free of essential oils and are great for people who have fragile skin! Here's a link to check it out: https://www.bendsoap.com/collections/sensitive-skin-soap
Q: Can your goat milk soap be used on babies?
Our goat milk products are excellent to use on babies — very safe, made using 100% natural ingredients, nourishing to the skin, free of toxins, and super gentle! We recommend using the Unscented Milk Bath and Lotion to start, but you can also check out our subtly scented Vienna Rose and Hint of Lavender products.

Q: Which soaps are best for acne-prone skin?
Everyone's skin is different, so we do not and cannot make any claims as to our products ability to clear up acne or cure any other skin sensitivities. That said, our bars of goat milk soap can certainly be used as an all-natural replacement for your regular face wash! We recommend starting with the Tea Tree or English Garden Goat Milk Soap as they have particular astringent properties known to help prevent microbial growth and effectively reduce breakouts. You can view our full collection of soaps we recommend using as a face wash in our Best for Acne Collection: https://www.bendsoap.com/collections/soaps-for-acne
Q: Are your products gluten free?
Yes, nearly all of our products are gluten free. If you are extremely sensitive to having gluten on your skin, you may want to avoid our Oatmeal & Honey scented products as there could potentially be some traces of gluten from the oats. Otherwise, there is no gluten in our products. We list ALL ingredients included in the product on the individual product pages and encourage our customers to view the list of ingredients before use. If you’d like to learn more about our ingredients and why we use them, follow this link: https://www.bendsoap.com/pages/natural-ingredients
Q: Are your products cruelty free?
Yes, all our products are 100% natural, sustainably sourced, and cruelty free. We use fresh milk from our very own home-raised goats. They are raised all naturally and are treated like part of our family! We love them and truly believe that happy goats produce lots of great milk. While goats do not have to be pregnant to produce milk, we make sure that pregnant goats are not milked in the months leading up to their due dates so that they can rest and have plenty of milk for their little ones. Happy goats produce great milk and our goats are treated like part of the family! So, we're happy to see that other people out there care about their well being as much as we do.

Q: Do you make a shampoo and conditioner?
We don’t make specific shampoo and conditioner products, but many of our customers use our products as alternatives and have experienced great results. Our goat milk soap has a great lather, effectively cleans the skin and hair (especially dry scalps), and will leave your hair extra soft. The most popular shampoo soaps are Oatmeal & Honey, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus Spearmint and Lemongrass, but if you have a specific scent preference, feel free to try any of our 15 options. Here’s a link to our blog post about making the switch to goat milk soap as a shampoo: https://www.bendsoap.com/blogs/sudsy-scoop/how-to-use-goat-milk-soap-as-shampoo
If you’re looking for a replacement to using a big-name brand conditioner, try using our Unscented Goat Milk Lotion as a leave-in conditioner on your ends! Or, if you’d prefer, you can effectively soften and detangle your hair with a diluted apple cider vinegar rinse after you shampoo it. Our best advice is to experiment and see what works best for you and your hair!
