Benefits of Goat’s Milk Soap

What’s in Goat’s Milk Soap?
Goat’s milk soap contains less alkaline ingredients than most other soaps. Alkaline ingredients are known to dry out your skin more, not something that you need in a complexion bar. The main content of goat’s milk soap is – simply goat’s milk! And goat’s milk has a similar pH to that of human skin, maintaining a nice, even balance.1,2
Goat’s milk is also packed full of beneficial components such as vitamin A, along with natural antioxidants (including selenium), and alpha-hydroxy acids, to help to promote beautiful, glowing skin. Let’s breakdown those ingredients further:
- Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs): Help in the exfoliation of skin (which in turn leads to brighter skin), promote collagen production, promote blood flow to the skin, and help make other skincare products work better!3
- Antioxidants: Pollution and sunlight (UV) can cause damage to your skin. Antioxidants help to protect the skin from such damage, and this is the reason why they are found in many skincare products!4 In addition, the lactic acid found in goat’s milk helps to attract and keep a hold of moisture in your skin, leading to a more balanced, healthy-looking skin.2
- Vitamin A: Vitamin A (also an antioxidant) has many benefits for your skin including managing acne, dermatitis, protection for sun damage, and promoting firm, wrinkle-free skin!5
