Keeping Skin Youthful with Goat’s Milk

By January 8, 2013May 4th, 201822 Comments

Have you noticed an ingredient in some of your skincare products that reminds you of your favorite cheese? Yes, that ingredient is goat’s milk!

Why I prefer goat’s milk for skincare

Goat’s milk is rich in essential fatty acids and triglycerides. The essential fatty acids have a unique PH similar to humans, so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed by our skin. These fatty acids and triglycerides are super moisturizing.

But there’s more! Goat’s milk contains precious skin minerals like selenium and is loaded with vitamins, particularly vitamin A, the most important vitamin for the skin. As with other milks, goat’s milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It assists to gently slough off dead skin cells and helps to hydrate and brighten the skin.

Goat’s milk has unique nourishing properties that make it the perfect ingredient to add to anything which touches your skin, from your shaving cream to your moisturizer. It is both an anti-aging wonder and a lifesaver for dry and sensitive skin.

As far as the skin on your body, goat’s milk is a must for your daily shower. With its healing benefits, not only will you notice healthier skin, but one more little glorious thing will happen — you will begin to notice a need for less moisturizer. There are many different brands that carry goat’s milk-based soap … I happen to adore one that also incorporates aromatherapy for added bath time pleasure.

Goat’s milk is known to be a healthy food for inside our bodies, but as a skincare ingredient, it is a healing miracle. As I mentioned earlier, its lactic acid content helps to reveal brighter, healthier skin while the nourishing and remineralizing ingredients do wonders to maintain the skin’s integrity. Naturally packed with vitamins and anti-oxidants, goat’s milk should be the new kid on your block.
