How Handmade Goats Milk Soap Helps Your Skin

Dec 29, 2007
Cleansing the skin is not something you need to take lightly. It is something you do every day. At least I hope you do! All kidding aside, when considering this fact alone, you need to look at Mother Nature's best solution for soap, which is goats milk soap.

Glycerin: The Key to Natural Skin Hydration in Soaps

In the soap making process, soap saponification naturally creates a compound called glycerin. Glycerin is created as a strong base reacts with natural fatty acids called triglycerides. Triglycerides are found in animal products such as goat's milk, lard, butter, etc. Glycerin is the key to skin hydration.

Glycerin is wonderful at maintaining the skins natural moisture during cleansing. Despite this wonderful benefit, soap manufacturers remove glycerin from soaps because it is very valuable in the global economy. It is a vital component in a number of important manufactured products including medications, glycerin suppositories, explosives, etc. So at the expense of people's skin, it is removed from store soap.

Goats Milk Soap Is Almost Exact Same pH Level as Our Skin

PH is important because of the "acid mantle" on our skin. The acid mantle is a highly acidic layer on top of the epidermis that protects us. This acidic layer is produced by the skin's oil glands which, in turn, defend our bodies from bacteria, viruses, and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin. Since these outside forces are primarily basic in nature, the skin's acid mantle easily defends us by neutralizing those threats on contact.

From lab tests of pH levels, scientists have discovered that goats milk soap is almost the same acidity as our skins natural pH. It does not overwhelm our skin's natural acidity with a strong base that needs neutralizing, like store soap does. The light acids caprylic, capric, and caproic acids work together in goats milk soap to maintain the perfect pH for human skin and hair.

Skin and Hair Problems Will Fade Away

With regular use of goats milk soap, skin and hair problems begin to disappear. In wintertime, this can be seen even more readily. In the dry air, factory-made soap can make our hands terribly dry. What happens is that the natural acids and oils are removed from our skin by the hot water and basic soap, leaving behind dry skin.

The oil glands of the skin's acid mantle will over-react to the over-alkalinity by producing more oil (or "sebum"). This can result in oily skin and even the skin pores being blocked which can result in acne.

Causes Skin Rejuvenation

Goat's Milk contains lactic acid for alpha hyroxy skin rejuvenation. Old skin cells are easily lost after exposure to alpha hydroxy, therefore leaving the smooth new skin cells. Your skin will feel amazingly clean and refreshed! I hear from people all the time, how amazed they are at how goat's milk soap is almost like a medicine for their skin.

Try Goats Milk Soap & You Will Never Go Back!

If you have never tried goats milk soap, you think that soap is soap, right? You would be wrong. Goats milk soap leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed. The difference can easily be felt. But you must try it first. I promise, you will not regret it!
