What is Goat Milk Soap?

Goat Milk Soap is exactly that, – soap made from Goats Milk.

The practise of using milk, water, and fats in soaps spans thousands of years, but Goat Milk has recently gained more popularity due to its skin loving properties.

There are a lot of Goat Milk Products currently available on the market, but they are not all equal. Many use a milk substitute, or often dilute the milk with water, many even contain harsh foaming agents and detergents, which can be problematic for those who suffer with skin conditions.

When you buy from The Little Goat Soap Company you can be safe in the knowledge that their soap is made from fresh milk directly from their own small herd of Goats and contains no harsh additives, just natural oils and butters .- If you happen to prefer a scented soap you can choose from  a full range that are fragranced  with natural pure essential oils.

How is Goat Milk Soap Made?

Goat Milk Soap is made by the traditional cold process method. This involves combining fats and oils with a Lye base. Lye is usually made from a combination of Sodium Hydroxide and Water; however, The Little Goat Soap Company replace the water with fresh goat milk, which gives a lovely creamy silky texture. The mixture is poured into moulds and allowed to sit for 48 hours where saponification takes place, (saponification being a chemical process that converts fats and oils into soap)

Goat Milk is rich in both saturated and unsaturated fats, making it ideal for soap production. Saturated fats increase the lathering properties of the soaps, while unsaturated fats provide moisturising and nourishing properties, they also include other oils and butters which help give you a healthy skin all day and all night.

Top 3 benefits of Goat Milk Soap

#1 Deep yet gentle cleansing.

Goat Milk contains fats and acids which break down the bonds between dead skin cells, removing the dull surface layer. Lactic acid, a natural component of goat milk, works to remove impurities which keeps skin fresh and bright.

 

#2 Provides a protective moisture barrier

Goat Milk is and emollient, meaning it helps to maintain natural moisture by penetrating the skin quickly and effectively, keeping the skin smooth and supple with long lasting hydration.

 

#3 Prevents premature aging

Due to its mineral and antioxidant rich formula, goat milk soap offers an effective defence against free radicals (chemicals in the air such as pollutants which can damage the skin)

Vitamins such as A.C and E form a protective barrier and help reduce the signs of aging such as fine lines and sunspots.
