All the Rage: Goat's Milk Soap
Posted April 2023
Written by Jamie Barrows
Bar soap trends come and go. Some ingredients gain traction in the skincare industry and eventually die down. One exception to this typical process is goat’s milk. Goat’s milk has long been known to improve skin. One of the first stories regarding goat’s milk for skincare dates to the 30s and 40s BC. It is said that the Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, bathed in it to keep her skin soft and glowing. Today, we see goat’s milk in various skincare products – especially bar soap. As time passed, it became clear that this all-natural ingredient has proven beneficial effects.
A Popular Choice at Farmers Markets And For Bigger Brands
Goat’s milk soap is a staple at your local farmers market because it is easy to make, has an artisanal feel, and customers appreciate its skin benefits and all-natural quality. Goat’s milk is so multi-dimensional that more prominent brands like Canus and Madina have added Goat’s Milk Soap to their regular lineups. Goat’s milk soap isn’t just for small farmers anymore.
What Is in Goat’s Milk That Makes It So Effective?
One of the major characteristics of goat’s milk is its abundance of lactic acid. Lactic acid is incredible for skincare products because it can restore ceramides, essentially the glue that holds your skin cells together. When that “glue” is damaged (aka you don’t have enough ceramides - a process that happens as you age), you are more prone to dryness, acne, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. You can also become susceptible to UV skin damage. Cleopatra may have been on to something!
Wait. There’s More??
Additionally, goat’s milk contains natural probiotics, fatty acids, vitamins A, B, and E, and helpful minerals like selenium. The best part about all its nutrients, though? Goat’s milk is incredibly gentle and is easily absorbed, so all those skin-enhancing benefits can enter your body’s protective layer faster and more efficiently.
