Goat Milk Soap Benefits

The Nutshell: Goat Milk Soap will…

Goat Milk Soap Makes Skin Vibrant and Youthful

The alpha hydroxy acids in goat’s milk attack the “glue” that binds dead skin cells together. With these bonds broken those dry, lifeless cells slough off to reveal that young, healthy skin that is hidden beneath. Goat milk is loaded with vitamins and minerals which promote healthy skin function, facilitate skin renewal, and protect against free radicals. Since goat milk penetrates the layer of dead cells and is easily absorbed by the skin, it delivers these key nutrients where it counts -- to the living tissue that can actually use it. Combine these awesome benefits of goat's milk along with the coconut, olive, and palm oil found in every bar and you’ve got a rejuvenating power elixir made just for your skin.

A Gentle Yet Effective Cleanser

Most commercial soap relies on harsh detergents to cleanse the skin. These detergents, along with a myriad of chemicals found in commercial skin care products (like alcohols, parabens, dyes, and synthetic preservatives), do more damage than good. Have you ever used a bar of soap that dried your skin out or caused you to itch like crazy? Our Goat Milk Soap won’t. That’s because our soap is made from goat’s milk, coconut oil, olive oil, and palm oil. All of which are natural ingredients known for their skin soothing effects and rejuvenating benefits. Compare these with petroleum-derived detergents and you’ll begin to understand why synthetic skincare products irritate your skin. Our Goat Milk Soap can be used on your hands, body, face, and even as shampoo!

Goat Milk Soap Benefits

Softens and Moisturizes the Skin

The fatty acids and proteins of goat milk collaborate with the premium skincare oils and quality glycerin to moisturize and hydrate the skin. Moisturize vs. Hydrate: What’s the difference? Moisturization is the act of coating your skin with a moisture barrier, and in this case, the fat molecules from goat milk, coconut oil, olive oil and palm oil. This coats all of those little cracks and gaps between cells, seals the moisture in and leaves skin feeling smooth and supple. Think of cream cheese spread over toast. Hydration is the act of attracting and filling cells with water.

Did you know that when you’re dehydrated your skin actually loses elasticity? Pinch your skin while dehydrated and let go, the skin will stay “tented” for some time before returning to normal. The proteins and fats found in goat milk and glycerin penetrate the skin then attract and hold water to themselves. This drawing of water into the actual cells leaves your skin feeling taut and firm. The moisturizing and hydrating abilities of goat milk soap reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
