Goat Facts


Why is Goat’s milk good for your skin?

Its low pH helps maintain the slightly acidic mantle that healthy skin generates to prevent bacterial invasion. Its molecular composition (closer to human milk than cow’s milk) allows goat’s milk to actually soak into the skin’s barrier instead of just sitting on top, carrying these healing goodies.

Raw goat’s milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid when help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface on you skin that are smoother and younger looking.

There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne and provide some psoriasis relief.
