It is always convenient to buy commercial brand soaps since it is found in grocery stores and drugstores. However, there are some downsides to using commercially available soap brands especially if you tend to have dry skin.
According to FDA, “Today there are very few soaps in the market. Most body cleansers, both liquid and solid, are actually synthetic detergent products. Detergent cleansers are popular because they make suds easily in water and don’t form gummy deposits. Some of these detergent products are actually marketed as “soap” but are not true soap according to the regulatory definition of the word.”
Commercially mass-produced soaps usually contain synthetic additives which acts as a detergent to remove dirt. Now, this is where why Farmcradle formulated and handcrafted goat’s milk soap as it contains natural ingredients which is good or both body and our environment.
Here are some of benefits why you may want to consider using Farmcradle’s handcrafted goat’s milk soap:
1. It Contains Vitamin and Minerals
Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t. Not only Vitamin A, it also includes:
Vitamin D, which helps to soften the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines
Vitamin C, which gives skin strength and promotes collagen production which fights dryness and wrinkles.
Vitamin E, that helps prevents aging and dry skin
2. Goat’s Milk Soap has anti-ageing properties.
Goat milk has this amazing ability to help provide a youthful appearance and who doesn’t want that? It works because it contains a good amount of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), such as lactic acid that help break down the dead skin cells. When you remove the dead skin, you immediately gain a glow to the surface of the skin because it smooths it out and that can offer a more youthful appearance.
Alpha hydroxy acid is nothing new and can be found in tons of products such as body creams, sunscreens, acne products, shampoos and more, but again, it’s the natural chemical-free product that you want. Alpha hydroxy acids are really great at exfoliating and with that process, they increase blood flow to the skin, give your face and skin the much-needed rejuvenation it longs for, and ultimately help minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Goat milk has the ability to reduce skin inflammation because it contains a fat molecule that not only moisturizes the skin, but possesses anti-inflammatory characteristics. A study was conducted regarding the use of goat milk, in particular because of the numerous reports of digestive issues and allergic reactions to cow milk. Even though the study focuses on the internal consumption, the external application can greatly benefit, too. The study points out that goat milk is able to provoke a release of anti-inflammatory cytokines, which help signal the cells by providing a stronger immune response. So, even though drinking or eating products that contain goat milk can have a direct effect, when you put it on your skin, the skin soaks up those benefits as well.
4. Reduces and Treats Acne
Goat milk unlike cow’s milk, may help treat acne-prone skin. It contains special properties that can offer a sort of exfoliation for the skin. The exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, that if not removed can cause your skin pores to clog, causing unwanted acne to surface.
Additionally, goat milk contains antibacterial properties that can eliminate and even prevent acne altogether, and it can even help reduce swelling and itching that acne can cause.
Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap. The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of goat milk soaps. Since many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, this is an important quality for soap. Goat milk soap will not dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy.
6. Heals Skin Infections Quickly
It can soothe our skin without causing itchiness. On the other hand, it also offers effective anti-microbial effects. Therefore, the soap made from it can easily be used to heal skin infections, such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis faster.
7. Protects Skin From Skin Cancer
Goat milk soap contains lots of selenium, which was proved by scientists, can protect our skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun, keeping skin cancer at bay.
8. PH Level of Goat’s Milk Soap is Similar to Human Skin
Our skin loves to soak up the moisturising effects of goats milk because the pH level this ingredient is extremely close to our skin. The similarity in pH levels also helps to protect the skin from bacteria and chemicals which may trigger a flare up of dry, irritated skin.
9. No Artificial Additives
Farmcradle’s Goat’s milk soap does not contain harsh detergents or any additives such as alcohol, petroleum and preservatives. This reduces the possibility of skin irritation and allergic reactions. Many people with eczema and other sensitive skin issues can use goat’s milk soap without any problems.
10. A Gentle Yet Effective Cleanser
Most commercial soap relies on harsh detergents to cleanse the skin. These detergents, along with a myriad of chemicals found in commercial skin care products (like alcohols, parabens, dyes, and synthetic preservatives), do more damage than good. Have you ever used a bar of soap that dried your skin out or caused you to itch like crazy? Our Goat Milk Soap won’t. That’s because our soap is made from goat’s milk, and natural oils such as Coconut, Olive, Canola and Palm Oils. All of which are natural ingredients known for their skin soothing effects and rejuvenating benefits. Compare these with petroleum-derived detergents and you’ll begin to understand why synthetic skincare products irritate your skin. Our Goat Milk Soap can be used on your hands, body, face, and even as shampoo.
11. Less Allergens
Goat milk soap is less allergenic than synthetically loaded commercial soaps and detergents.
