Healthy Benefits of Goat Milk Soap

Help really does come from the strangest of places, especially when it comes to your skin. When made naturally like the bars from Australian producer Goat's Own, the potential benefits to your skin are substantial. This company raises and milks their own goats and combines the milk with a few other ingredients, including palm and olive oil, to make its soap bars.

These are just a few components of Goat's own natural goat milk soap

1. Alpha hydroxy acids

This chemical compound is found in Goat's Own goat dairy soap, which also contains naturally occurring lactose. Although you may not be familiar with this compound, alpha-hydroxy acid (also known as AHA) is used in many cosmetic products due to its skin effects. AHA has been shown to increase skin thickness and connective tissue without inflammation.

Although AHA can cause skin irritation in large quantities, it is not enough to cause skin damage or irritation in goat milk soap. The lactic acid can also be used as an exfoliant for your skin, which can make it more able to absorb the soap's vitamins.

2. Vitamin A

Vitamin A is an essential ingredient in many anti-aging creams. It helps to protect your skin from the sun, and it is essential for healthy skin. Studies have shown that the active form of vitamin A, retinoic acid, can help to restore elastic fibers in the skin. This helps to reduce wrinkle visibility. This acid is also effective in fighting the plague that plagues teenagers and some adults: acne.
