Why is goat milk soap good for your skin?

Posted on October 09, 2015 by Melanie Brown

Traditionally, goat milk is regarded as a healthy drink. Now many people are turning to using it in soap production.

I enjoy making goat milk soaps. When you use a bar of this soap, you can feel how it differs from other soaps. It is moisturising to the touch and leaves the skin feeling soft and silky.

Since ancient times, it has been used as a natural cleanser.

Goat milk is renowned for having many benefits. Here are 9 of them:-

  1. It is a rich moisturiser which means it is great for hydrating and nourishing your skin.
  2. Great for dry skin.
  3. Is known to help with skin problems such as acne and eczema due to being a rich emollient.
  4. Goat milk contains alpha hydroxy acids. These acids are quite important as they help to get rid of dead skin. This assists with rejuvenating the skin leaving it with a glowing and vibrant appearance.
  5. Goat milk is full of essential fatty acids which have a pH balance which is very close to our own skin. This means that it is not harsh on the skin, does not dry it out and protects us from unwelcome bacteria.
  6. It is packed with vitamins and triglycerides which boost and protect the appearance of the skin. Vitamin A helps with skin repair and reducing wrinkles. Vitamins C and B, Zinc and amino acid and citric acid all work to giving your skin a healthy appearance.
  7. Goat milk is a great anti-ager.
  8. Has healing qualities and soothes the skin.
  9. Free from harmful chemicals

So as you can see, the presence of goat milk in a bar of soap, serves to enhance it with many positive qualities.

Heavenly Cranberry and Orange Soap Slice

Posted on June 19, 2015 by Melanie Brown

This morning I was looking forward to starting my day with one of my favourite soaps, Cranberry and Orange goat milk soap slice. I stepped blissfully into the shower and turned it on only to be jolted alive by the freezing cold water. I let out a little scream of shock. Ok, it was a big scream of shock!

There was no hot water due to a fault with the tank. But do you know what? It only bothered me for a few seconds because I was actually looking forward to using my favourite soap. So why do I love using my Cranberry and Orange soap slice?

As well as having a gorgeous fruity fragrance, it is really moisturizing and hydrating and does not dry out the skin. This is due to the goat milk fatty acid content which has a pH similar to humans and is therefore less irritating on the skin.

The other superb qualities of goat milk are:-

  • It is easily absorbed by the skin leaving the skin smooth and silky.
  • It is packed with skin minerals and vitamins which nourish the skin
  • It contains lactic acid otherwise known as AHA which gently sloughs off dead skin cells and hydrates and brightens
  • It is a fantastic anti-aging product
  • Goat milk is said to be brilliant for dry and sensitive skin

 With all these fantastic qualities, this soap bar should not be ignored.
