The Benefits of Goat Milk Soap
Commercially made soaps contain harsh detergents that can strip your skin of its natural moisture and oils, leaving skin dry and tight. In contrast, Goat Milk Soaps boast high amounts of fat, particularly caprylic acid allowing for gentle removal of dirt and debris without removing the skin's natural fatty acids.
Goat milk is rich in fatty acids and cholesterol which make up a large portion of the skin's membrane. The lack of these components in the skin can lead to dryness and irritation. Goat milk is also a good source of Vitamin A, a soluble vitamin shown to have anti-aging properties. Additionally, it is a good source of selenium, which has been reported to support a healthy skin membrane and the ability to help improve skin issues such as psoriasis and eczema.
Goat Milk contains two natural exfoliants: alpha-hydroxy acid and lactic acid. Alpha-hydroxy acids are used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as scars, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. Lactic acid has been shown to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing for a more youthful complexion. It also has the ability to help prevent acne by keeping pores clean and free from oil and dirt.
