Many people are still washing their skin with soap made with water. Switching to soap made with goat milk can truly benefit your skin’s health. Goat milk soap is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is also perfect for healthy skin that wants to stay that way. Unprocessed goat milk fresh from the farm contains many benefits.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. The alpha-hydroxy acids are so effective because they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin conditions by removing irritation. Water-based soaps may use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results.
Vitamins. Goat milk contains many vitamins(A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and many more) , but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t.
Cream. Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap. The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of goat milk soaps. Since many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, this is an important quality for soap. Goat milk soap will not dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy.
Minerals. Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium is believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun. Although the water used in other soaps may contain minerals such as calcium, sodium, or iron (commonly found in tap water), that’s not much help when it comes to your skin. (Note: Many areas in the United States have pastures low in selenium. At Goat Milk Stuff, our dairy goats get a selenium booster, to insure their mineral needs are met.)
Shea butter is well known in helping moisturize while providing a silky protective barrier to all skin types.
- Wrinkles, fine lines and scars repairing
- Deeply moisturizing
- Stimulating for the superficial microcirculation
- Skin strengthening
- Skin protecting

Almond Oil – includes lots of vitamins including A, B, and E. A is a good lubricant so it can help with itching and inflammation. It is especially good for dry, sensitive skin and helpful for eczema. Sweet almond oil helps balance the moisture in your skin, so it is suitable for all skin types. It is easily absorbed, and gives your complexion a youthful glow.
- It effectively delays aging.
- Regular application nourishes the skin making it smooth and supple to touch.
- It helps lighten dark complexion making it glow and look healthy.
- It eradicates irritation, inflammation, and skin rashes.
- It helps in soothing itchiness and soreness in the skin area affected.
- It moisturizes deeper, curing chapped and dry lips in the process.
Avocado oil – is high in sterolin, which studies have shown to facilitate the softening of the skin and to reduce incidence of age spots. Avocado oil is rich in antioxidents, making it useful for healing sun-damaged skin. Antioxidants like vitamins A, D, and E in avocado cause the skin to be suppler, and are thus particularly good for dry or aged skin. It contains lecithin and potassium, which are all highly beneficial for the skin as well as the hair.
Five good reasons to start using goat’s milk Soap and Lotion
Delays signs of skin aging: Goat’s milk soap delays signs of skin again 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.
Not a chemical counterfeit: 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.
Anti-inflammatory properties: 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.
Loaded with essentials: 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.
Treats acne: 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.
