As a family, we have become more aware of the questionable ingredients listed on the packaging of commercial body care products. We’ve read them and like many of you, I’m sure, we’ve wondered what exactly these ingredients were and what it meant for us to be putting them on our skin.
We aren’t ignorant as to why these products exist. We know and understand they are much cheaper to mass-produce than a product containing ingredients that can be naturally sourced, such as the milk and oils found in our soap. But, come on, there is an underlying cost to using these products. Most of them contain ingredients that may be much too harsh for many people’s skin. After all, your skin is the largest organ of your body. Everything you put on your skin, you are putting in your body.
You know that feeling after you take a shower or bath with that typical drab store-bought bar of soap? Yes, you know…that ugh-my-skin-feels-so-dry-and-tight feeling. No. That’s not what your skin is supposed to feel like after you’ve just cleaned it. A bar of soap is meant to cleanse your body of dirt, dead skin cells and whatever else you happen to have on you (ew, we don’t want to know), without stripping the natural oils your skin needs to stay hydrated. So, lets ditch the soap with artificial scents and colors that don't exist in nature and change the way we view our daily bar of soap, shall we?
Now, this is where we’re supposed to talk about alpha-hydroxy acids, vitamins and fat molecules, but let’s skip that and just get down to the facts. The components of unprocessed goats milk do an amazing job of breaking down the bonds of dead skin cells, leaving the skin brighter, smoother and less irritated.
Ok, we said we wouldn’t mention vitamins, but ever heard of Vitamin A? You have. It’s in a bunch of those really overpriced anti-aging face creams. Guess what also contains Vitamin A? Goat’s milk! Vitamin A helps repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin. Depending on what skin type you have, this could mean reducing lines and wrinkles, controlling acne and even providing some relief for those of you who suffer from psoriasis.
Do you know what else you should stop buying? Hand sanitizer. We won’t even go into the details of how hand sanitizer can be more harmful than it is helpful. Do the research. Wash your hands. Even better, buy our soap and wash your hands with that. Goat’s milk has anti-bacterial properties and it’s not going to strip away the good bacteria that your skin needs!
We saved the best for last. The cream! The cream found in goat’s milk gives our soap a moisturizing quality that just cannot be found in water-based soaps. Goat’s milk soap won’t dry your skin out and we all know moisturized skin is healthy skin. If your skin isn’t feeling soft and lush after using our soap, please call us and we will tweak our recipe for your own personal bar of more creamy soap. We promise. You can even come over and help us make it if you want. Or not. Whatever works.
