Why Goat’s Milk?

Goat milk soap is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin.

The cream in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality.
Goat milk contains selenium, which is believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun.

How do you prevent the lavender from turning the soap brown?

Hi Casey! You don't add the lavender until the end, so the soap doesn't change color. Also you would use dried lavender buds, not fresh.

I find this instructional not helpful. How do you cut up the soap when you supposed to explain how to make the soap. You are starting with instructions on what should be the finished product. And what about the goat milk? Where does this come in? Are you adding it to what? This is just a poorly written instructional. The soap does look pretty at the end.

Hi Ann - I'm sorry you didn't find the instructions helpful. The ingredients list using a goat's milk soap which is a melt and pour base, so when you first start you have to cut the base into chunks to melt it properly and then add in the other ingredients. As it is a goat's milk soap base you don't actually have to use goat's milk. This way is much easier as goat's milk is difficult to come by and needs to be stored properly.
