Goat's Milk Benefits You Need To Know

When you hear "goat's milk" do you think cheese? I don't blame you, because goat cheese is honestly so tasty. But did you know that goat's milk is one of the best things for your skin? It's loaded with amazing health benefits! That's why we created our own Rosemary Mint Goat's Milk Soap bars to add to our other favorite OTD products. 

So, what is it? Goat's milk soap is an all natural, toxin-free alternative to traditional soaps that's made with simple ingredients. A few of the ingredients you'll find specifically in OTD's goats milk soap were carefully selected by us to give you an even more beneficial bar of soap. You can read about those here. But back to the main ingredient.. here's why you should consider adding this trending nutrient rich ingredient into your daily routine.


Goat's milk


Moisturizing your skin is so important, especially during the cold winter months. Soaps made with goat's milk provide a gentle way to remove dirt and oil without over-drying the skin. The fatty content of the soap helps reinforce the lipid barrier, which helps to seal in moisture and enhance elasticity - making your skin softer and smoother for longer. 


Goat’s milk has a ton of vital minerals that your skin will love, including a substance called selenium. Selenium is an antioxidant that fights free radicals which seek to destroy living cells. In turn, this boosts your skin's natural tolerance to the sun and helps prevent premature aging of the skin. It is also believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. 

You're also getting nourishment from the generous amount of Vitamin A that goat's milk contains. The body needs Vitamin A to repair damaged skin tissue, therefor reducing lines and wrinkles and may provide some psoriasis relief. Other vitamins and minerals found in goat's milk include B6, B12 and E, Triglycerides, Capric, Caprylic, Caproic acids, Ca, Na, Mg, P, K and Zn, Mn, Se, Co, Cu, Fe... just to name a few. 

Fight Acne

Another way goat's milk is known to be used for the treatment of acne and eczema. It has great antibacterial properties. The fatty molecules in the milk work to inhibit the growth of microbial organisms that act as a catalyst for those ugly, unwanted visitors. And as you may already know, many of the vitamins above like B6 and B12 help with the prevention of acne, as well. 


Goat milk carries alpha-hydroxy acids, including lactic acid, which assist in removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This natural and mild exfoliation reveals new skin cells that are healthier, and more youthful looking. Alpha-hydroxy acids are powerful exfoliators due to the fact they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. Build up of dead skin cells can lead to flakiness and cause irritation. Regular elimination of these dead cells enables many skin conditions by removing the irritant and encouraging healthy skin development.

So, are you ready to experience these amazing benefits for yourself? This gentle, moisturizing soap will surely make your skin feel soft and smooth. Even more so, it may help keep your skin youthful and acne free. What's not to love? Try it for yourself today.
