WHY HOMEMADE GOAT MILK SOAP?

 

The Soap Making Process


design - there's more than meets they eyeThe process that results in soap is called saponification. True soap is made by combining sodium hydroxide (lye), oils and or fats, and water or milk in a process known as saponification. This process takes several days to complete. A natural byproduct of saponification is glycerin. Handmade, cold process soap retains this naturally occurring, moisturizing glycerin, which is a wonderful skin softening emollient. Almost all commercially manufactured soaps that we buy today remove the glycerin and contain cheap fillers, detergents, and preservatives.

Our handcrafted goat milk soap is made in small batches, one batch at a time, to produce a rich, creamy goat milk bar of soap. Enjoy the luxurious and relaxing world of natural soap, made by hand the old-fashioned way!

Goat Milk

design - there's more than meets they eyeFor Centuries, the benefits of bathing in milk have been known for it’s nutritional, healing, and moisturizing qualities. Milk is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals and is a wonderful skin softener. Goat’s milk makes soap gentle and especially kind to sensitive skin. We use only 100% farm fresh whole goats milk. The Nubian goats that provide the milk are raised in a clean and natural environment providing the highest quality milk.
