Goat's Milk Facial Recipes

Here’s a recipe you can try at home from Meyenberg, which can be found at a grocery or health food store.

Goat's Milk Facial

A few drops of warm water sufficient water to make a smooth paste

Apply to face and neck. Massage gently to cleanse and exfoliate. Let dry for 5 or 6 minutes. Gently rinse and gently pat dry.

And here's a another goat's milk recipe for a facial scrub.

In food processor, grind your oats and almonds until powder like. Next add just enough goat's milk to form a thick paste. Apply to your face and neck, gently massaging, and leave on for 5-6 minutes. Rinse with luke-warm water and gently pat dry.

We're Helping to Clean the World

That's right, we're helping to clean the world. We recently donated over 30 pounds of soap (that's over 70 bars of soap) to Clean the World (click here to read more). They are a non-profit organization that accepts lightly used soap from hotels or less than perfect looking soaps from businesses (you know, the kind I put on sale at events). They sterilize the soap, and or rebatch it, package them into small bars of soap, and ship them around the globe in an effort to bring better hygeine to prevent the spread of disease in less fortunate countries. They also work in conjunction with another organization providing jobs to people in special care groups.

Right now, they are shipping all of their soap to Haiti, as the need is so great. We hope that our small contribution can help the quality (and length) of life to those in need.

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.
