Essentially, it’s the ingredients handcrafted soaps lack, such as artificial hardners, detergents and chemical surfactants that strip the natural oils from our skin and then for what is added.
Milk based soaps have recently been rediscovered, largely due to the current research on milk proteins that is teaching consumers about the way skin benefits from contact with whey protein and lactic acid. Lactic acid, a natural source of Alpha Hydroxy Acid helps smooth skin by gentle exfoliation, and milk also contains Vitamins A and D, whose benefits include giving skin strength and suppleness. The PH of goat milk is very close to the PH of human skin. This helps protect the acid mantle layer on our skin which in turn, protects our skin from bacteria and harmful chemicals. The naturally occuring glycerin in handcrafted soap helps to deliver the nutrients of goat milk deep into the skin while acting as a humecant which draws moisture to our skin. Goat milk soap can cleanse the skin down to its deepest layers while conditioning and protecting our skin.
