Goat milk soap is organic and is wonderful for people with conditions such as eczema, dry or sensitive skin. To understand the benefits of goat milk soap, we need to look at the qualities of goat milk.
Goat milk is high in vitamin A, which helps to repair skin tissue, reduce wrinkles, control acne and provide relief for psoriasis. The rich butterfat found in goat milk boosts the moisturizing properties of soap made from it, and is particularly effective for people with dry skin. Unlike many water-based soaps, organic soap made from goat milk is naturally rejuvenating, moisturizes the skin, soothes dry and damaged skin and possesses anti-inflammatory qualities. Goat milk also contains a mineral known as selenium, which helps prevent damage to the skin due to extensive exposure to the sun.
Most importantly, goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids. These acids penetrate the top layers of the skin to remove dead skin cells. Through the removal of the dead skin cells, it stimulates the skin and causes new healthy cells to be regenerated, resulting in a skin that is smoother and shinier. In water-based soap, harsh chemical acids may be used instead for this purpose, which damages the skin.
