Why are people switching to goat milk skincare products?
With so many types of soaps, lotions, shampoos and all-purpose skin care products on the market, it can cause confusion as to what should you use? People usually select skin care products based on price or packaging rather than health or safety. For people with sensitive skin or allergies to herbs, fragrances or preservatives, soap choices are more limited.
Goat’s milk soap delays signs of skin aging due to its high content of alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid. Alpha-hydroxy acids break down dead skin cell bonds, removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface and leaving behind new cells on the surface that appear smoother and more youthful.
Water-based soaps on mainstream supermarket shelves use harsh chemical acids to break down dead skin cells. The lasting effect of chemical acids on the skin is more similar to a chemical “burn.” Alpha hydroxyl acids found in goat’s milk, work with skin instead of breaking it down and aging it further.
Goat’s milk reduces skin inflammation due to its fat molecule content. The cream present in goat’s milk is a moisturizer, soothing dry and damaged skin, possessing an anti-inflammatory effect.
Goat’s milk is packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins like vitamin D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E, that feed the skin and are absorbed into the body.
Studies now show that goat’s milk is effective for treating acne and skin conditions. This is primarily because goat’s milk has anti-bacterial properties that delay the growth of microbial organisms that spur the spread of acne.
The wonderful fragrances are from essential oils which are blended for their aromatherapeutic qualities and give our products the completed well balanced ingredients they need.
Allergy sensitive people may experience dryness, itching and even hives if they use soap or lotion with irritating ingredients. By using goat milk options the gentle natural product can help people that are prone to allergic reactions such as redness, rash or itching.
About The Owner:
I made the choice to use only essential oils to scent the soaps I make because I have long used and been a firm advocate of aromatherapy and the healing, rejuvenating, and often stimulating properties of essential oils.
