Why Goat Milk Soap
Regardless of whether your skin is healthy or not, it will certainly benefit from using a handmade soap, made with goat milk rather than water. If you’re unsure where to begin, try our unscented soap either Natural or Guern Gold made using Guernsey Honey and goat milk. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we’ll be glad to help!
Goat milk is good for the skin
We use the ‘cold process’ method of making soap, by mixing pomace olive oil, coconut oil cocoa butter, castor oil, and tallow with an alkali mixture of lye mixed with raw goat milk. We then sometimes add fragrance, colour and other goodies such as local seaweed or Guernsey Honey, pour into moulds to set for 48 hours before turning out to cure for 4-6 weeks. We do not add any chemicals to create any extra ‘soapy’ qualities, as, we are sure you will agree, our carefully balanced recipe does not need them!
Once cured our soap has a shelf life of 36 months.
Our soaps are cleansing but gentle and mild with a rich creamy lather delicate enough for the most sensitive skin. However, it is always wise before using a different soap to perform a skin test to make sure you aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients.
Apply the soap in a normal fashion to the tender area on the inside of your upper arm. If you’re sensitive to any of the ingredients in that variety of soap your skin will let you know, usually within 8 hours.
