The pH of milk soaps is very close to the natural pH of human skin, resulting in a naturally gentle product that cleans without the addition of harsh chemical additives. Milk soaps, especially those with goat milk, are made with a gentle balance of ingredients that clean without being harsh or irritating to the skin.
All milk contains lactic acid. In high concentrations, lactic acid is used in chemical peels. In lower concentrations, such as those found in milk soap, lactic acid is a natural exfoliating agent. Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxyl acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue and maintain healthy skin.
Milk soap naturally contains milk fats, triglycerides and vitamins and minerals which help moisturize the skin. Goat milk soap also contains capric-capryllic triglyceride, a known moisturizer. Milk soap also contains natural glycerin, an effective moisturizer, which is usually removed by most commercial soap manufacturers. Goat’s milk is high in vitamin A which studies have shown that creams made with vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Goat milk soap will not dry your skin out like commercial soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy.
