Benefits of using Handmade Goat Milk Soaps and Lotions
Did you know that Cleopatra, known for her beauty and amazing skin, biggest skin care secret revealed was bathing in goat’s milk?
Goat’s milk is loaded with essential nutrients and vitamins. It is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin. Goat’s milk also contains vitamin C, B1, B6, B12 and E, and zinc and amino acids. These vitamins and minerals help slow down aging, help the skin rebuild, add elasticity and retain skin moisture.
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. Many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months. Goat milk soap will not dry your skin, keeping skin naturally moisturized and healthy.
The beta hydroxyl and alpha hydroxyl acids in milk act as a gentle skin exfoliate cleansing dead skin so the healthier skin cells can emerge. Goat milk soap and lotion have a pH level similar to human skin, protecting the skin from daily bacteria and chemical invasions. This closer pH prevents dryness while allowing nutrients to enter the skin.
Goat milk soap has been proven to effectively treat acne. The proteins in the milk products kill acne producing bacteria. The moisturizing benefits of goat milk lotion far surpass that of commercial lotion because of the natural creams of the goat milk. The molecular structure of the proteins and fatty acids in goat milk are smaller and shorter than those of cow’s milk, making it more easily absorbed into the skin. It is not greasy like store-bought lotions, but rather soft and silky and will leave your skin feeling silky smooth to the touch.
Handmade goat milk lotion benefits people with sensitive skin because it doesn’t contain additives like alcohol, petroleum and preservatives, as do mass-produced, store bought lotions. This reduces the risk of skin irritation and allergic reactions. There has been a lot of press recently on the benefits of goat Milk products.
