One bar of Lavender Goat Milk soap with essential oil.
Benefits of goat milk soap Goat milk soap is a gentle cleanser rich in fatty acids that can help support a healthy skin barrier to keep skin nourished and moisturized. Moreover, its high lactic acid content may help exfoliate the skin, which may benefit those with acne. Goat milk soap has several beneficial characteristics that can help keep your skin looking and feeling great. Most commercially made soaps contain harsh surfactants that can strip your skin of natural moisture and oils, leaving it feeling dry and tight. To maintain your skin’s natural moisture, it’s best to use products that don’t remove the natural fats in the skin barrier. Goat milk soap boasts high amounts of fats, allowing for gentle removal of dirt and debris without removing the skin’s natural fatty acids. Goat milk is a good source of vitamin A, fat soluble vitamin shown to have anti-aging properties, and selenium, a mineral shown to support a healthy skin membrane. It may even improve psoriasis symptoms like dry skin. Dry skin is a condition caused by low water levels in the skin. Normally, your skin’s lipid barrier slows moisture loss. That’s why low lipid levels can lead to excess moisture loss and dry, irritated, and tight skin. People with certain dry skin conditions, namely psoriasis and eczema, often have lower levels of lipids, such as cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acids, in the skin. To improve dry skin, the lipid barrier must be restored and rehydrated. Goat milk soap’s high cholesterol and fatty acid levels may replace missing fats while providing moisture to allow for better water retention Additionally, the use of harsh soaps can strip the skin of its natural moisture, which can worsen dry skin. Using a gentle, fat rich soap like goat milk soap can support and replenish the skin’s moisture. Goat milk soap contains compounds that may exfoliate your skin. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as scars, age spots, and hyperpigmentation, due to their natural ability to exfoliate. Lactic acid, a naturally occurring AHA found in goat milk soap, has been shown to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing for a more youthful complexion. What’s more, lactic acid is known as one of the gentlest AHAs, making it a suitable option for those with sensitive skin. Goat milk soap may support a healthy skin microbiome — the collection of healthy bacteria on your skin’s surface. Due to its gentle dirt-removing properties, it doesn’t strip your skin’s natural lipids or healthy bacteria. Maintaining your skin’s microbiome improves its barrier against pathogens, potentially preventing various skin disorders like acne and eczema. Moreover, goat milk has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects in the body, including the skin. Due to its lactic acid content, goat milk soap may help control or prevent acne. Lactic acid is a natural exfoliant that gently removes dead skin cells, which helps prevent acne by keeping pores clear of dirt, oil, and excess sebum. Moreover, goat milk soap is gentle and may help maintain the skin’s moisture. This is unlike many face cleansers containing harsh ingredients that can dry out the skin, potentially leading to excess oil production and clogged pores.
