soap


Hand made goat milk soap is now available!

Using the milk from my little goats is a most rewarding endeavor. It is the only soap we use! Once you try it, you won’t want to go back to any other soap.

Made with 100% natural ingredients including goat’s milk, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, vegetable oil, Shea butter, Jojoba and beeswax. It is packaged in cotton batik fabric with our label indicating which essential oil scent is used or if it is unscented.   No artificial colorants or fragrances are added.

Why goat’s milk? 

Goat milk has been used for centuries to help beautify skin. It contains over 50 nutrients, including vitamins A, C, B1, B6, B12, and E, minerals, citric acid, amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, enzymes, and a variety of other nutrients that nourish and revitalize dehydrated skin. Vitamin A slows down the effects of aging, prevents brown spots and thickening of the skin, while Zinc contributes to the reconstruction of collagen fivers, encouraging moisture retention and assisting in maintaining your skin’s elasticity. The alpha-hydroxy acids found in goat’s milk rejuvenate the skin’s cells and create a healing process. Goat milk soap is recommended by dermatologists for dry, itchy skin. It is also known to relieve eczema, psoriasis and acne.

Why is the soap brown?

Each batch of my soap turns a variety of shades of brown. This is due to the way goat milk fats and protein combine with the lye in the soap making process as well as the choice of combinations of oils used. Once the curing process is through, the lye is no longer present and what remains is a mild, hydrating, natural, soap. I do not add any extra ingredients to my soap for color or fragrance, in order to keep it natural for the skin.

Why Jojoba, Shea butter and oatmeal?

I use a goat milk soap recipe which I learned to make at the 2007 AGS Convention. The combination of ingredients is variable but they are all natural and help prevent the loss of your skin’s natural moisture, softens and keeps it younger looking. Jojoba is especially helpful in conditioning skin. It is suitable for all skin types, beneficial for acne, unclog pores, restores and conditions the skin. It is an excellent emollient for skin conditions like psoriasis, because it has a chemical composition very close to the skin’s own sebum. Any questions about specific ingredients, just ask!
