I have been using goat’s milk soap for years. If you have sensitive or dry skin, soap made with goat’s milk is much gentler and moisturizing than soap made with water. The important thing is to find soap made with fresh, liquid goat’s milk, not processed or powdered like some of the mass-produced brands in the drugstore. Goat’s milk is very beneficial for your skin. It contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids that help remove dead skin cells, vitamin A, and the high fat content makes it super moisturizing. It won’t dry your skin like regular soaps will.
I would find hand-made goat’s milk soap in specialty shops or farmers markets. Then, about 2 years ago while I was in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, I went to a farmer’s market and found, literally, the best goat’s milk soap ever!
Slice Soapworks is run by a lovely lady named Terri-Lynn who I met at the market. She has a farm in Falmouth, Nova Scotia, where she raises her own adorable goats and even keeps her own bees to make honey to add to her soaps. My two favourites are her fragrance-free Goat Milk & Oatmeal soap with honey and certified organic oats (which smells naturally AMAZING all on its own) and her Honey, I Love You! soap imprinted with a honey comb pattern on the top.
The Slice Soapworks website is currently undergoing a make-over, but you can order soaps by simply sending them an email and arranging payment through Paypal. That’s what I do. These all-natural, hand-made soaps are $5.00 CAD.
I thought I’d leave you with some pictures of the actual goats borrowed from their blog. Look how frickin cute they are!
