Soft and Soothing
- The cream that is present in goat's milk contains vitamins and proteins that helps boost the moisturizing quality of goat’s milk products; it doesn't dry out your skin like many other commercial products, it will also help to soothe skin ailments and itchiness.
- Goat’s milk soap naturally exfoliates the skin because it contains lactic acid that removes dead skin cells from your skins surface leaving new cells on the surface that is smoother and younger looking.
- Dry skin, bumps and other ailments can make your skin look and feel less than desirable. Commercial soaps can cause these problems since most of the needed glycerin has been taken out of them. Goat's milk soap leaves the glycerin in the soap, as well as the fat proteins that are necessary to soothe the skin.
- Acne is a condition of the skin that causes blemishes, redness and other problems. Using goat's milk soap reduces the redness of acne, as well as the other problems. Goat's milk soap is rich in vitamins, such as A, B and C, which help with inflammation due to acne.
Major Skin Problems
- If you have more severe skin issues, such as psoriasis and eczema, goat's milk will be helpful in relieving the itchiness and other problems caused by the conditions. Goat's milk moisturizes and soothes the skin, even when these ailments are present. The itchiness and peeling skin will be reduced. Psoriasis causes raised red patches on the skin, and a scaly look. Goat's milk soap can help relieve this condition.
Avoid sodium lauryl sulfate
A report from the Journal of The American College of Toxicology (1983) blamed sodium lauryl sulfate concentrations as low as 0.5 percent for causing skin irritation. Further studies showed that concentrations of 10-30 percent were found to cause severe skin corrosion. The "Household Products Directory" of the National Institutes of Health lists over 80 products that contain sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate with concentrations up to 30 percent. These high concentrations not only affect the skin's outer layers, but are absorbed into the biggest organ in the body, the skin, and stored in tissues.
Sodium laureth is now commonly used in place of sodium lauryl, but it can be even more dangerous. Laureth cannot effectively be removed from the liver. Laureth can be stored stored in tissues and promote toxicity for a person's entire lifetime, draining them of energy.
These chemical soaps are popular mainly because of price, but they aren't worth the negative, long-term draining of energy. Many consumers are finding it more important than ever to spend the extra dollar here and there to assure they have what is natural and pure, for their body and for the environment. Small farmers and manufacturers of all natural products are the future for a population which seeks to survive, healthily, happily.
