Scroll down below to learn all the amazing ways goat’s milk soap can benefit your skin!

  • It Soothes, Balances & Renews

Goat milk helps to maintain your pH balance, keeping your skin barrier at a healthy level, without overwhelming it. Not only can it stabilize your skin microbiome, but also soothe over irritated skin caused by overwhelmed pH levels.

If you suffer from skin conditions like dry skin, psoriasis, rosacea, or eczema, products containing goat’s milk can provide you the relief you’ve been wishing for. Naturally high in fatty acids, using goat’s milk soap can help to replenish and repair damaged skin barriers. It offers a natural soothing sensation and promotes healing, without worsening current states of irritation.

  • It’s Moisturizing

Is your skin suffering from a sensitive and dry texture? Nobody wants that! Goat’s milk is packed with essential fatty acids and triglycerides, which are crucial when rehydrating dry skin and strengthening your skin barrier. It also has high levels of selenium and vitamins E, B6, and B12. Selenium, which is high in antioxidants, will soothe irritation and reduce redness. Vitamins B6, B12, and E are significant sources for nourishing your skin, inducing moisture, lessening inflammation, and promoting skin cell production. A lot of soaps can dry out our skin, leaving us with more irritation than we started with. Goat’s milk soap does the opposite! It will clean your skin without drying it out further. Instead, it will restore your moisture levels, leaving you with a softer and replenished complexion.

  • Prevent Signs of Aging

Some of the most popular products on the market right now are ones that assist in anti-aging, and we totally stand by that! Did you know goat’s milk is a natural source for vitamin A, a powerful agent in fighting signs of aging? Scientists report topically applying vitamin A can actually reduce and improve wrinkles, while at the same time, promote new skin cell production. Not only can it assist in the natural aging process, but also an advanced one caused by the sun’s rays. Other powerful agents in goat’s milk that assist in reducing signs of aging? Selenium, vitamin E, b6, b12 and lactic acid!

  • A Natural Exfoliator

Exfoliation can clear your pores and banish dead skin cells, while promoting a smooth and plump complexion. It is an ideal choice when looking to liven up your skin’s texture and overall appearance, while cleansing bacteria buildup. Goat’s milk contains lactic acid, which is a known AHA, a natural form of exfoliation. The lactic acid in goat’s milk is a gentle exfoliator, it is a perfect and essential option for sensitive and easily irritated skin. Its exfoliation gently clears dead skin cells and renews your appearance, without harming or disrupting your skin barrier. Lactic acid is an essential form of hydration, as it attracts and holds moisture. Pro tip! Lactic acid can also treat hyperpigmentation and age spots, which are signs of premature aging. It is extremely beneficial in creating a radiant complexion, as it lightens and brightens dull and uneven skin.

  • It May Reduce & Prevent Breakouts

As discussed above, goat’s milk contains lactic acid, a natural and gentle option when looking to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliation is crucial when looking to clear your skin of bad bacteria and dead skin cells, and in return this can reduce inflammation. Acne and blemishes generally occur when bacteria and oil build up in your pores. This is where goat’s milk soap can help! Goat’s milk soap can reduce and prevent breakouts and inflammation by clearing harmful bacteria’s, maintaining a healthy pH balance, and providing moisture, while promoting and allowing for a rebuilding process.
