Why are homemade goats milk soaps good for your skin?

 Homemade Goats Milk Glycerin Soaps

Are All Glycerin Soaps the Same?

Our goats milk glycerin soaps are handmade from an all natural goats milk soap base so you can be confident your skin will stay clean and nourished, not dry.  Not all glycerin soaps are made with an all natural base.  A lot of cheaper soap bases are made with lots of harmful chemicals and are no better than what you buy in the store.  Some are purchased from local craft stores and are loaded with toxic chemicals. 

Quality Matters

We think quality is more important than purchasing a cheaper soap base.  Our glycerin soaps contain no SLS, propylene glycol, sulfates, petroleum, or surfactants and contain only the highest quality ingredients.  Make sure you read the ingredient listing of homemade soaps you buy.  If the seller won't disclose the ingredients, there's probably a reason.  We proudly list all of our ingredients on each product listing.  If you ever have any questions about our products, just ask.
Why Use Goats Milk in Soap?

Goats milk is known to have wonderful effects on your skin.  It has many skin-loving vitamins such as A, D, B-6, B-12, trigylcerides, and natural emolients making for healthy and soft skin.  The gentle exfoliating properties of alpha-hydroxy acids contained in goats milk help to slough off dead skin cells and leave smooth new cells behind.  This rejuvenates your skin, helping to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. 

Goats milk has the proteins of milk products that help to protect our skin from invading bacteria and chemicals.  Goats milk has healing properties for skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne, and general relief for itchy, dry, and damaged skin. 

Our Ingredients

Our goats milk glycerin soap base contains coconut oil, palm oil, and safflower oil which makes for a nice, long-lasting hard bar.  Glycerin soap has glycerin (as does all true homemade soap) which is a humectant and draws moisture from the air onto your skin.  Our soap also contains goats milk and you can read about it's benefits above.  Water and sodium hydroxide (lye) are essential for making the oils turn into soap.  There is no such thing as a lye free soap, unless it's not true soap, but a chemical laden bar instead.  Sorbitol is a naturally occurring ingredient found in many edible fruits and berries, corn, even seaweed and is used because of its outstanding moisturizing properties. Sorbitol also provides clarity and translucency to our glycerin bar soaps.  Sorbitan oleate is an emulsifier made from a vegetable source.  Soybean protein, made from soybeans is used as a conditioner.  Our colorings used are oxides, micas, pigments, or natural colorings.  If a soap lists fragrance as an ingredient, it is a fragrance oil.  If it lists essential oil, then it's an essential oil.
