Many people use commercial soaps made of water and detergents to wash their skin. Instead, why not try goat milk soap? Your skin can be greatly improved by switching to soap made from raw goat milk. Goat milk soap can be used to moisturize, soothe sensitive skin, and treat a variety of skin conditions.
What Skin Benefits Can Goat Milk Soap Offer?
Make sure to clean your entire body, but not too deeply.
Maintains skin’s health and moisture
It removes dead skin cells and promotes new skin growth
Natural Goat milk is rich in vitamins and minerals. One of the many factors that contribute to the soap’s moisturizing properties is the sweet cream content in goat milk. Soaps made from raw goat milk contain Vitamin A, C, and E as well as a variety of B vitamins, amino acids, natural enzymes, and Vitamin A.
Natural goat milk fat globules are smaller in size and more homogenized. This means they remain dispersed and don’t easily separate. This is crucial to the soap’s emollient properties.
Natural goat milk is rich in natural alpha-hydroxy acids, which aid in the elimination of dead skin cells. If dead skin cells aren’t removed from the skin, they can build up over time giving the appearance that the skin is aging and weathering. Pure goat milk is more allergenic than other soaps. Raw goat milk soap has been credited with helping to reduce inflammation, flaking, itching, and dryness in skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
What Is The Process Of Making Commercial Soaps?
Body washes and commercial soaps are made with detergents, which dry the skin during the cleansing process. To balance the cleansing properties and the skin’s need for moisture and nourishment, additives are added. Some soaps contain synthetic vitamins. Glycerin can also be separated from soap using salt. It is then sold to make more lucrative products like pharmaceuticals and medicine. Glycerin, a wonderful natural substance, draws moisture up through skin layers. Glycerin reduces drying time and evaporation. This blog post explains more.
Milk baths and soaps made of milk have been used for thousands of years. Cleopatra is believed to have used goat milk baths daily in pursuit of healthy skin.
Not All Soaps Can Be Made Equal
Goat milk soap can be found in many shops and online. Make sure you read the ingredients list. A goat milk base is used by some “handcrafters”, but it can also be commercially manufactured. They melt the base and then add color and scent. We use raw milk from our goats. We can identify what goes into our Nigerian dwarf and dairy goats. Powdered milk, goat extract, canned goat milk, or commercially produced goat milk soap are not used. Only raw, unprocessed goat milk soap base provides the best moisturizing benefits.
A soap of high quality is not just made from milk. It should be paired with high-quality oils and purified Lye. Soap oils can be sensitive to heat, light, oxygen, and should therefore be kept in cool, dry places. We use cold process extraction whenever possible to extract the oils. This extraction process is free from chemical solvents and high temperatures that can damage nutrients in top-quality oils.
Soap Ingredients Matter
Each batch is hand-weighed, mixed, and poured. Cold-process soap-making is used. No heat is added. This helps preserve vital nutrients. All soap is aged at least 6 weeks in dark, cool, and dehumidified environments. Each bar of soap is checked before it is packed for sale for proper curing, residual pH, and quality of smell. To speed up soap production, we won’t cut corners on quality. It takes time to make high-quality, nourishing soap artisanally.
