Our Ingredients

All-Natural Goat Milk Soap

Our Goat’s Milk Soap contains only natural ingredients. Other soap makers may add colors or perfumes, but we prefer to keep mine 100% natural. This aids in preserving all the wonderful properties of the Goat’s Milk as well as allowing those who are allergic to scents and dyes to use our soap. Our goat milk comes straight from our farm, Oak Hollow Acres.

Our soap contains coconut oil, olive oil, vegetable oil, pure and undiluted Goat’s Milk, as well as quality herbs and essential oils. We also use lye in our soap, which is essential for saponification process. This is where a chemical reaction occurs when combining oils and fats with an alkali (in this case the Goat’s Milk), which then turns it into a bar of soap. Once the curing process is complete, the lye is no longer present. You are left with mild, pure, nourishing, moisturizing soap. It’s true, no lye… no soap!

We also include quality herbs and essential oils which have the properties ranging from promoting calmness and easing tension, to soothing tired muscles and benefiting the immune system by encouraging stillness and tranquility.

Goat Milk has been used since ancient times as a natural cleanser.

It is one of the finest moisturizers and has excellent emollient properties. It contains vitamin A, and B including riboflavin, niacin, B6, B12.

Alpha-hydroxy acids contained in goat milk are believed to have rejuvenating effects on skin cells and the rich butterfat softens and moisturizes. Alpha-hydroxy acids penetrate the top layers of the skin, epidermis and upper dermis, to achieve exfoliation (sloughing of old skin cells). Exfoliation stimulates the skin and healthy cells are regenerated. The effect essentially is “anti-aging.” The skin is smoother and softer with an overall lessening of fine wrinkles and skin discoloration. The hydroxy acids are also used to improve scaling, precancerous growths (actinic keratosis) on sun-damaged skin. In addition, there is also great benefit with acne. Dead skin cells are exfoliated, opening the pores. Alpha hydroxy acids have been used for thousands of years as a skin rejuvenating product. Goat milk actually ‘feeds’ the skin and permeates through the cell walls delivering calcium. The PH of goat milk is closer to skin’s own natural PH which reduces the surface tension of the skin, allowing it to absorb the moisturizing effects of goat milk and the glycerine which is a natural by-product of soap making.
