Just a few of the most profound benefits of goat milk for skin:

1.  One of the most profound benefits of goat milk is it’s ability to help the skin seal in it’s own moisture!  A healthy skin care routine begins with cleansing the skin with a gentle cleanser.  A natural goat milk soap is as gentle as can be.  By using its own natural abilities, when you choose to use goat milk soap as a facial cleanser, you’re getting a time-savings as well as cost-savings.  Using a gentle cleanser that also helps retain moisture means less moisturizer that needs to be applied after cleansing.   Healthy skin care CAN be simple and inexpensive when you have the right ingredients!

2.  Goat milk contains alpha hydroxy acids, which is an ingredient included in many professional chemical peels because it is so effective at removing the dead skin cells. By removing the dead skin cells,  younger skin cells are exposed and allowed to breathe which results in softer, vibrant skin with a glow!  For home use, using goat milk, with it’s perfectly natural alpha hydroxy acids combined with it’s other gentle ingredients, allows dead skin cells to be released gently while holding in moisture so that there are no side-effects for any skin type.  In fact this gentle goat milk soap enables people with sensitive skin, psoriasis, or even ezema to gently exfoliate while not flaring up the skin!  Goat milk soap provides gentle exfoliation while nourishing the skin.
