Ingredient Profile - Goat's Milk in Soaps, Lotions and Bath Products

Goat's Milk is one of our favorite natural ingredients. We use it in soaps, lotions, milk baths, bath bombs, and more. Nothing beats its creamy, richness for the skin.

Goat's milk nourishes the skin. It contains vitamins A, C, E and some B vitamins, along with amino acids, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids, citric acid and zinc. It also contains glycerin, which manufacturers use as a moisturizer in lotion. Glycerin is naturally found in goat's milk and in handmade soap.

Goat's milk products are alkaline with a low pH, close to the pH of human skin. This aids in moisturizing the skin and and delivering nutrients. Additionally, goat's milk soap contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid commonly included in skin rejuvenation products. Alpha hydroxy acid helps slough off dead skin cells, leaving smooth new cells at the surface. Besides ridding the skin or dryness, alpha hydroxy aids in preventing wrinkles.

Goat's Milk is completely natural. We get our Goat's Milk from a Florida farm that cares for the goats humanely and allows the goats to roam free and graze on grass. Goat's Milk reduces the possibility of skin irritation and allergic reactions. Many people with eczema, psoriasis, and other sensitive skin issues can use goat's milk soap without any problems. It is safe for adults, children, and babies.
