Benefits of Goat Milk Soap

Goats milk has many vitamins and other essential elements to help nourish skin. These include vitamins A, E, C, some of the B vitamins, amino and citric acids, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc.

Goats milk soap has the proteins of milk products. These proteins kill acne producing bacteria.

Natural creams in goat’s milk soap help keep moisture in skin better than commercial soaps. This is because the commercial brands are mainly chemicals.

Goat’s milk soap contains caprylic acid which makes the product a low pH level because it is an alkaline product. This brings the pH closer to human skin and prevents dryness while allowing nutrients to enter the skin.

Goat’s milk soap benefits include the lack of alcohol, petroleum or preservatives. This helps reduce skin irritation and itchiness for people with sensitive skin or eczema.

Goat’s milk contains many healthy ingredients to nourish skin. These include vitamins A, C, E and some B vitamins, along with amino acids, citric acid, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc.

In the commercial soap manufacturing process, glycerin is typically removed because the substance is valuable to sell for its moisturizing properties. Goat’s milk soap contains glycerin for luxurious skin softening.

Goat’s milk also contains caprylic acid, making goat’s milk soap an alkaline product with a low pH, close to the pH of human skin. This allows better delivery of moisture and nutrients from the soap and prevents dryness and other negative skin reactions.

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.

Goat’s milk soap does not contain harsh detergents or any additives such as alcohol, petroleum and preservatives. This reduces the possibility of skin irritation and allergic reactions. Many people with eczema and other sensitive skin issues can use goat’s milk soap without any problems.

Benefits of Honey:

I often add honey to my soaps. They increase the lather. Also, honey is naturally antifungal and antimicrobial. Honey is also anti-inflammatory and therefore is great for clearing up acne. Honey is rich in vitamins and amino acids. It is also a great moisturizer.

Benefits of Cinnamon:

Cinnamon is warming and increases blood flow to the skin and can help plump up skin and dries eczema. Cinnamon is also antimicrobial. Plus is smells great.

Benefits of Figs:

Figs contain enzymes called (ficin) which is antioxidant-rich and revitalizes the skin by fighting the damaging effects of the sun and environment. Figs are also anti-inflammatory.
