Some of the Benefits of Of Goats Milk Soap

Why Use Goats Milk Soap?
For Thousands of years goats milk and goats milk products have been
used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes. Goat milk protein contains
essential amino acids as well as vitamins A and B and minerals such
as calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. With its natural
emollients, goat milk soap contains alpha hydroxy acids which can
break down the "glue" holding dead skin cells together.
Alpha-hydroxy acid is well known for softening skin and leaving
it soft, silky and younger feeling. Goat milk soap is often recommended
by dermatologists for their patients who suffer from skin conditions
such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.

Goats milk soap has a pH level similar to human skin; therefore,
goat milk soap benefits the skin by protecting skin from daily bacterial
and chemical invasions.
Handmade goat milk soap offers benefits for people with sensitive
skin because it doesn’t contain additives like alcohol, petroleum
and preservatives. This reduces the risk of skin irritation and
allergic reactions.

Goat milk soap benefits people with acne prone skin because the
proteins in milk have been shown to kill acne-causing bacteria.
Eczema, a troublesome skin condition with symptoms of red, itchy
skin patches, greatly benefits from natural goat milk soap since
the natural nutrients in goat milk moisturizes skin and reduces
itchiness in the skin.

What is the difference between Essential and Fragrant oil?

Essential oils are natural and fragrance oils are synthetic. Essential
oils are the natural aromatic oils that are extracted from actual
flower petals, leaves, stems, roots, rind of the fruit, seeds, or

and harder to find than Fragrance Oil’s but have better scent retention.
Fragrance oils are man-made organic mixtures that are created to
produce an attractive scent. This can be anything from “Lilacs”
to “New Car” scent. Although fragrance oils may contain
essential oils as ingredients they may also contain synthetic compounds.
