Goat's Milk Does Your Skin Good
Using milk in beauty rituals is nothing new - it has enjoyed a long history as a skin softening and beautifying treatment. Cleopatra was famous for her soaks in milk baths. This legendary beauty may not have known the science behind why milk made her skin radiant but we know today. Over time, as the unique benefits of goat's milk became more widley known, goat's milk gained popularity in beauty regimens over cow's milk. Goat's milk is higher in fats, proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins A, B3, B6, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and more. It is one of the finest natural moisturizers with excellent emollient properties.
One benefit of goat's milk when applied to the skin is that the naturally occurring lactic acid dissolves and exfoliates the “glue” that makes dead skin cells stick to the top healthy layer of skin. When used in soap, goat's milk performs double duty by dissolving the "glue" as well as washing it away! This is a true anti-aging benefit because you can enjoy a daily rejuvenation process every time you bathe.
Goat's milk is also much higher in medium chain triglycerides (MCT's) and total fat (lipid) content than cow's milk. It is this high fat content that creates a silky cleansing lather that does not strip the skin of its protective layer of oils. Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and chronic dry skin can be helped using goat's milk soap because it has a natural ability to soothe and heal. Imagine washing your skin and not feeling the need to apply moisturizer after every bath or shower!
Did you know that you can “feed” your skin with natural soap? Our skin can readily absorb nutrients; sometimes at an even higher rate than if we took supplements orally. The nourishing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, MCT's and more that are naturally present in the cream part of goat's milk can be absorbed into our bodies through the skin. It doesn't replace a healthy balanced diet of course but we want all the nutrition we can get!
