If you have been searching for an alternative to your current soap and have come across goat milk soap, you may be wondering if it really is as miraculous as it sounds. What is it that makes GOAT Soap so much better for your skin than standard soaps? When comparing goat milk soap versus regular soap there really is a lot to learn.
First we must understand that some soaps aren't in fact soap at all. Knowing why this is harmful to your skin will no doubt have you reaching for GOAT Soap in no time.
What Makes a Good Soap?
Soap has traditionally been made using the ancient process of saponification. This means mixing oils and lye (an alkali derived from tree ashes) with heat to create soap then these nourishing oils create the cleansing lather. However, with commercial and other widely used soaps, the lather actually comes from detergents.
Detergents are great for washing grease and grime off plates and pans, but are entirely too harsh for our skin. As a result, our skin is stripped of its natural oils and the PH level becomes unbalanced. Unfortunately detergents also remove the good bacteria from our skin’s microbiome. Thus we are more prone to skin irritations, itching, and conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
A good soap is free of harsh detergents and works to keep the skin healthy through gentle cleansing and replenishment of moisture. GOAT Soap achieves this easily.
The GOAT Soap Difference
Wouldn’t you choose to put natural, nourishing products on your skin instead of chemically drying ones? When the natural option is effective and more gentle on skin it seems an easy decision. So just what is it that makes GOAT Soap so much better for you than regular soap? It comes down to the amazing properties found in the goat milk itself.
Goat milk is a powerhouse of skin loving components. It is high in lactic acid which helps dead skin cells break down and shed. Meaning your fresh new skin comes to the surface faster. It is full of vitamins and minerals essential to great skin health.
Vitamins A and E - Essential for skin cell turn-over, speeds up healing process, prevents break-outs and supports the skin’s immune system. Also helps boost skin elasticity.
Vitamin C - Boosts collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamins B6 and B12 - Helps reduce pigmentation, evens out skin tone, and minimizes dryness.
Vitamin C - Brightens skin and fights off molecular imbalances that age skin prematurely.
The creamy milk is also high in fat molecules which plump the skin and help seal any breaks in the surface membrane. This means less chance of cracks, splits or flaking in the skin.
Neutral, Natural And Nourishing
Other true soaps made via the saponification method can have vitamins added to the mix, but these are most often synthetically derived and measured out to a recipe. GOAT Soap already has the perfect quantities and is uniquely optimized to be absorbed into the skin.
Perhaps the biggest upside to using GOAT Soap over regular soap is that its PH is naturally close to that of human skin. When our skin's PH balance is interrupted it can make it more susceptible to harmful bacteria growth, inflammation and damage from pollution. Using PH neutral soap keeps our skin's protective barrier intact.
Even soaps that claim to be creamy and gentle on skin contain multiple chemically derived ingredients. Popular beauty bars claiming to be rich in ‘cream’ in fact contain nothing of the sort. The creaminess is derived from emulsified oils. They are high in salt, fragrance oils, commercial detergents and not much else. It’s true when they advertise saying they’re ‘soap’ free, but true soap isn’t the issue - detergent is. They will get you clean, but they won’t feed and nourish your skin the way GOAT Soap can.
