Benefits of Goat milk Soap
What is goat milk soap?
Many people are still washing their skin with soap made with water. We believe more people would switch to Goat Milk Soap if they only knew its amazing, nourishing benefits! Making the switch to soap made with raw goat milk can truly help balance your skin’s health. Goat Milk Soap is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It’s also perfect for healthy skin that wants to stay that way.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids, such as lactic acid, which help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This natural and gentle exfoliation reveals fresh, new skin cells that are healthier, smoother and younger looking. Alpha-hydroxy acids are effective exfoliators because they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together.
Build up of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin can lead to flakiness and cause irritation. Regular removal of these dead skin cells helps many skin conditions by removing the irritant and encouraging healthy skin development. Water-based soaps sometimes use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results. Goat Milk Soap is a far better alternative as it also contains vital vitamins and minerals the skin needs.
Goat milk contains a variety of vitamins but is particularly high in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for the body to repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams and soaps made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief.
Goat milk is rich in niacin, which recent studies have shown, helps protect your skin from sun damage. It also contains vitamins like thiamine and Vitamin B6 – which both promote healthy skin growth and maintenance. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t. Since these soaps also don’t contain alpha-hydroxy acids, the minerals they may contain have trouble being absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin.
Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap. The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of Goat Milk Soaps. Since many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, this is an important quality for soap. The fatty content of the soap helps seal in your skins’ moisture – leaving your skin softer and smoother for longer. Goat Milk Soap deeply hydrates your skin on multiple levels and won’t dry it out like commercially available soaps. This is important because moisture helps keep your skin healthy.
Goat milk naturally contains many important minerals for your skin. Minerals, just like vitamins, help support balanced, healthy skin.
While potassium can’t be absorbed into your skin, it can help create the skin barrier needed to lock in moisture.
Magnesium can help calm irritated skin. It encourages healthy skin turnover and can help reduce the appearance of acne.
