Ever wondered what’s in your beauty products?
Here we give you an eco-friendly solution…
Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Goat milk soap contains alpha-hydroxy acids - for example, lactic acid - which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves the surface of your skin feeling smoother and looking younger. These acids also break down the bonds that hold dead skin cells together!
Removing dead skin cells helps many skin conditions by removing irritation and itching. Some water-based soaps use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, which frequently leads to skin-damaging results. Why not get all the benefits without the risks?
Goat milk soap contains a plethora of great vitamins, but it’s particularly high in Vitamin A. This vitamin is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin. There have been many medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Soaps that are water-based can be artificially fortified with vitamins, although some are not.
Fat molecules are one of the most important parts of making good soap. The cream that’s present in goat milk boosts the moisturizing quality of goat milk soap! So, it’s already extremely moisturizing, and then goat milk adds another layer of moisturizing benefits to it!
Many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, so moisturizing is an important quality for your soap to have. Goat milk soap doesn’t dry out your skin like many other options. Keeping skin naturally moisturized and looking healthy overall.
Goat milk contains minerals that are important for the skin, such as selenium. Selenium can help prevent skin damage from excessive time spent in the sun. Although water-based soaps may contain minerals like calcium, sodium, or iron - commonly found in tap water, that’s not much when it comes to helping skin.
Regardless of your skin’s health, it will certainly benefit from using a handmade soap. Not one made with water, however; but with unprocessed, raw goat milk fresh from the farm!
