Goat’s milk soap is helpful for people wanting to maintain youthful and healthy skin and perfect for people with sensitive skin.
Goat’s milk contains many healthy ingredients to nourish skin. These include vitamins A, C, E and some B vitamins, along with amino acids, citric acid, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids and zinc.
In the commercial soap manufacturing process, glycerin is typically removed because the substance is valuable to sell for its moisturizing properties. Goat’s milk soap contains glycerin for luxurious skin softening.
Goat’s milk also contains caprylic acid, making goat’s milk soap an alkaline product with a low pH, close to the pH of human skin. This allows better delivery of moisture and nutrients from the soap and prevents dryness and other negative skin reactions.
Additionally, goat’s milk soap contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid commonly included in skin rejuvenation products. Alpha hydroxy acid helps slough off dead skin cells, leaving smooth new cells at the surface.
Goat’s milk soap does not contain harsh detergents or any additives such as alcohol, petroleum and preservatives. This reduces the possibility of skin irritation and allergic reactions. Many people with eczema and other sensitive skin issues can use goat’s milk soap without any problems.
