The Good Soap Goat Milk and Chamomile Soap Bar

Why milk soaps are a game changer for your skin

Milk is a beautiful natural ingredient that we add to our Milk Soap range. Our milk soap range can benefit the whole family.

You may be aware that we have a Milk Soap range as part of our soap collection but you may not know why we use the milk as one of our ingredients. Well, let me tell you, there was a reason Cleopatra used to bathe in milk! The ancient Egyptions would regularly add milk (and honey) to their beauty regime for the benefits to their skin. In our particular range of milk soaps we use coconut milk, oat milk and goat milk - we don't use soured donkey milk like Cleopatra was reputed to use!

So why is milk so good for the skin and why should you ditch chemical soap for natural soap?

  • The proteins in milk boost the elasticity in our skin, which in turn can slow down the development of wrinkles - now here at The Good Soap we are not anti wrinkle, far from it, but we just believe in keeping the skin as conditioned as possible.
  • Milk in a soap helps produce creamy, rich bubbles, giving the soap and your skin a luxurious feel
  • Milks add sugars, silkiness and extra fats to the soap
  • Milk, along with the soap, removes dead skin cells leaving behind a brighter, more luminous complexion

These are the best natural soaps for reducing irritation. Goat Milk, Oat Milk and Coconut Milk have different compostions and therefore slightly different benefits

  • Goat Milk is packed with saturated and unsaturated fats which help a soap produce it's bubbles as well as having moisturising properties, as you'd expect from fats. Goat milk contains selenium which supports a healthy skin membrane and the lactic acid in the milk acts as a natural exfoliant, suitable for the most sensitive of skin. The lactic acid in the milk could also be responsible for helping skin conditions such as eczema and acne, by gently removing dirt and sebum from clogged pores. Try a Goat Milk Soap to allow the skin to naturally be in the best condition it can be. 
  • Oat Milk is anti infammatory - how many times do we see oats used as a skincare ingredient? It's not by accident! Oat milk is rich in vitamin B which reduces inflamation and dryness, so is gently soothing for problem skin. Just like goat milk it contains lactic acid, a natural exfoliator to remove dead skin cells. The added oats in our Oaty Milk Bar help slough away dead skin cells and can also soothe dry and itchy skin.
  • Coconut Milk in a soap is cleansing, whilst not disturbing the natural oils in the skin. This is due to the molecular structure of the fatty acids in the milk which cleanse without taking away the natural oils. In a soap it adds extra fat, which in turn moisturises the skin. The sugars in the coconut oil help make a beautiful lather in the soap. Coconut milk is also rich in anti oxidents. When combined with honey in our Coconut Milk and Honey Soap, honey being a powerful antibacterial ingredient, this makes a powerhouse of a soap bar, and it is no wonder that his particular bar is our top selling product, of all products we make and sell. 

In conclusion milk is an extremely beneficial ingredient to use in a soap bar for it's many benefits for your skin. Each different type of milk has slightly differing properties so you may find one type suits your skin better than another - it's worth experimenting to get the best milk for your skin. Happily they all suit sensitive skin, and all skin types. You can find our full range of milk soaps on our website or see them below.
