Goat milk soap is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Unprocessed goat milk fresh from the farm contains many benefits. 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.Goat milk contains Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. 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.Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium can help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun or to the elements.
Regardless, whether your skin is healthy or not, it will certainly benefit from using a handmade soap, made not with water, but with unprocessed goat milk fresh from the farm.
