What is in our handmade Goat Milk Soaps? Ingredients required.
Ingredients We Use and Why we use them
Oils that we use in our soap and why we use them:
Olive Oil - Extremely Moisturizing, makes a nice slippery lather, has low cleansing properties that make the bar nice an mild for those with sensitive skin.
Coconut Oil - Provides lots of lather and large fluffy bubbles, is high cleansing and makes the bar hard
Palm Oil - makes a nice mild lather and helps to make a hard bar. All of our palm is from sustainable farms in the USA.
Avocado Oil - a rich moisturizing oil that is high in vitamin E and other vitamins and minerals.
Castor Oil - A thick clear oil that provides a nice creamy lather.
Shea Butter - adds a lotion like lather, heavy duty moisturizer
Liquids we use in our soap and why we use them :
Goat Milk - Goat’s milk is a natural emollient that helps soothe and moisturize the skin. It contains vitamins A, B6, B12 and E. Goat’s milk has 3 times more beta-casein than cow’s milk. Caseins are easily absorbed into the skin and allow for quick hydration of dry skin. It adds lots of vitamin and nutrients and makes a fantastic, creamy, moisturizing soap.
Other Additives we sometimes use and why we use them :
Colloidal Oatmeal - micro-fine, ground oatmeal is not rough or abrasive. In lotion it can create a barrier over the skin making it a great additive for those with extra dry skin. We use this in all of our soaps.
Kaolin Clay - a mild, white, fluffy clay. It's good for light masks or scrubs, and gives a silkiness and creaminess to soaps.
Poppy Seeds - used as an exfoliatant and to make soaps look pretty.
