The Benefits of Goat Milk Soaps & Lotions
Refreshing and Natural Goat Milk Soap
With so many synthetic cleansers on the supermarket shelves today, goat milk soap is a refreshing natural alternative that provides multiple benefits for your skin. While goat milk soap has been growing in popularity in recent years, the skincare product is far from new. In fact, Cleopatra herself was rumored to have bathed in goat’s milk to keep her skin soft and glowing. With its soothing properties and short, all-natural ingredient list, goat milk soap is now formally recognized as one of the most beneficial products you can use to clean your skin.
What are the Benefits of Goat Milk Soap?
Goat milk soap is known for its soothing properties and rich consistency. The soap is made by combining goat milk with sodium hydroxide to create lye water. The lye is then combined with oils in the traditional saponification process to create soap. By using goat’s milk instead of water to create the lye, you add an abundance of saturated and unsaturated fats to the soap. The saturated fats increase the soap’s lather, and the unsaturated fats enhance its nourishing and moisturizing properties.
Goat milk soap has many known benefits, especially for sensitive skin. Some of these benefits include:
- Gentle alternative to synthetic soaps: Many commercially-made soaps contain surfactants, which can strip your skin of moisture and oils. Goat milk soap is high in fats, so it won’t remove the natural fats from your skin barrier. It is also less allergenic than commercial soaps and detergents.
- Soothes dry skin: Dry skin occurs when your skin’s water levels are low. This is often the result of low lipid levels in your skin’s barrier. Goat milk soap is high in cholesterol and fatty acids, which can help replenish lipids while providing moisture.
- Rich in nutrients: Goat milk soap contains many essential nutrients and vitamins. It is a good source of vitamin A, which may have anti-aging properties. It also contains selenium, which supports a healthy skin membrane.
- Helps prevent acne: Goat milk soap contains lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant that removes dead skin cells and prevents your pores from becoming clogged. It is also a much gentler facial cleanser than many commercial products, which contain harsh ingredients that may dry your skin or lead to excess oil production.
Overall, goat milk soap is both gentle and nourishing for the skin. It is rich in fatty acids, which support your skin’s barrier to keep you moisturized. It also contains a high lactic acid content, which makes it a great exfoliator.
