Goats are one of the earliest domesticated animals and its not hard to see why as they are so cute, full of character, and have an abundance of rich creamy milk to spare! There is record that ancient Egyptians used goats for their milk, and indeed legend has it that Cleopatra (known for her extraordinary beauty) bathed in goat milk. With this in mind, here are 10 reasons you should give it a try! 1) Not just for kids! The structure and make up of goats milk is what makes it so good for us - inside and out! Because of this, it is often tolerated by those sensitive to cows milk and its also these components that make it so good for our skin. 2) Healthy skin food Rich in vitamins A, B1, B6, B12,C, D & E, micronutrients and trace elements including selenium, zinc, copper & iron which not only help keep our skin nourished and healthy but helps provide the basis to repair and replenish troubled, irritated skin. 3) Gently Exfoliates & Cleanses Goats milk contains lactic acid and alpha hydroxy acids which gently exfoliates and cleanses, breaking down old dead skin cells. This helps to remove impurities and makes way for new cells to form softer, smoother skin. 4) Deeply Moisturizes Goat milk is rich in fatty acids (fat molecules), proteins and glycerin which not only help keep you healthy on the inside but quickly absorbed greatly boosting its emollient and hydrating qualities to help keep the skin deeply moisturized and baby soft. 5) Nurtures Mature skin Goat Milk is high in antioxidants such as vitamins A, C & E which help prevent the oxidative damage caused by free radicals and the environmental stressers we are confronted with every day. These antioxidants and gentle exfoliating properties work together to help delay the signs of aging and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots etc. 6) Ban Blemishes The proteins present in goat milk are naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, and therefore can be very beneficial for helping to address acne and blemish prone skin by keeping in check the acne causing bacteria and germs that cause breakouts. 7) Relieve & Repair Irritated, Sensitive Skin Used regularly, the anti inflammatory benefits of our Goat Milk Skin Care products can greatly help soothe and repair sensitive, irritated, damaged skin. 9) Balanced pH Goat Milk has a pH level similar to human skin so it helps to balance ours perfectly! The fatty acid caprylic acid present in goat milk facilitates this and enables the skin to readily absorb nutrients founds in our goat milk soap and lotions. 10) The Selenium benefit
Goat Milk contains selenium which is said to help protect the skin from damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun and thus helping combat skin cancer. Selenium is antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties help to counter cell damage caused by UV rays.
