Wild Lemon Goats Milk Soap

The heady fragrance of fresh lemon is unbeatably fresh, fragrant, and therapeutic.

In fact, Researchers at the University of Sussex in the UK have found that the mere scent of a lemon can help people feel better about their body image.  The researchers compared their test subjects’ reactions to different smells.

  • When people smelled vanilla, they tended to feel heavy and even overweight;
  • When they smelled a lemon scent, they felt lighter, and better about their body image overall

What better reason that to start your day with a wonderful lemon fragranced soap!

 

The use of goat’s milk in soap brings a number of benefits to you and your skin:
• The pH level in goat’s milk is almost the same pH level of human skin.
• It contains many healthy ingredients, such as vitamins A, C and D.
• It also has high levels of protein and useful omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
• It also has mild anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties
The high fat content of goat’s milk means that it won’t dry out your skin like soaps made from water can. Our soap relies on coconut oil as its cleaning agent, olive oil as a conditioner, Apricot Kernel Oil is also highly conditioning and contains Vitamins A, C & E and Cocoa Butter for its antioxidizing properties We use the cold-process method to make our soap which allows the soap and glycerin to form naturally. Once the soap is made, we don’t speed up the curing process by applying additional heat, we allow it to cure naturally for a minimum of 6 weeks before it is packaged.

Wild Lemon Goats Milk Soap

Description

Goats milk contains lactic acid which is known as one of the gentlest alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) making it suitable for those with sensitive skin. AHAs are known to help exfoliate the skin leaving new cells that are smoother. Goat milk soap boasts high amounts of fats, particularly caprylic acid, allowing for gentle removal of dirt and debris without removing the skin’s natural fatty acid.

Goat milk is rich in fatty acids and cholesterol, which make up a large portion of the skin membrane. A lack of these components in the skin can lead to dryness and irritation.  Furthermore, the milk is a good source of vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin shown to have anti-aging properties. Finally, it’s a good source of selenium, a mineral shown to support a healthy skin membrane. It may even improve psoriasis symptoms like dry skin.

Dry skin — known as xerosis — is a condition caused by low water levels in the skin. Normally, the skin’s lipid barrier slows moisture loss. That’s why low lipid levels can lead to excess moisture loss and dry, irritated, and tight skin.

People with certain dry skin conditions, namely psoriasis and eczema, often have lower levels of lipids, such as cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acids, in the skin.

To improve dry skin, the lipid barrier must be restored and rehydrated. Goat milk soap’s high cholesterol and fatty acid levels may replace missing fats while providing moisture to allow for better water retention

Goat milk soap may support a healthy skin microbiome — the collection of healthy bacteria on your skin’s surface. Due to its gentle dirt-removing properties, it doesn’t strip your skin’s natural lipids or healthy bacteria. Maintaining your skin’s microbiome improves its barrier against pathogens, potentially preventing various skin disorders like acne and eczema.
