Explained: 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 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.

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 also a key component of healthy skin. Studies have shown that the active form of vitamin A, retinoic acid, can help to restore elastic fibers to your skin.

This helps reduce wrinkle visibility. Too much of a good quality thing can lead to skin irritation and reddening. You can use Goat's Own goat soap without concern because of the low concentrations.
