Why we use what we use

 

Here is a list of the main ingredients that we use for our products and some of the benefits and reasons why we use them.

In our outstanding Goat Milk Soaps

Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera ) – I use coconut oil for its cleansing properties, lather and the fact that it adds to the hardness of a bar of soap.

Olive Oil (Olea Europaea) – I use olive oil for the lather and the skin softening effects it has.  It is rich in vitamin E and acts as a natural emollient.  Additionally, it won’t clog pores.

Tallow – After researching many articles and recipes, I decided to use tallow as one of the fats in my soap.  Tallow is an animal fat, and I use the fat from beef.  Many people who make soap also use lard, (pig fat).  I believe in using as much of an animal as possible to have as little waste as possible.  Tallow contributes to the hardness of a bar of soap as well as the lather and skin conditioning.

Goat milk – I use goat milk in my soaps, instead of water, because of the benefits your skin can receive from the goat milk.  Goat milk contains lactic acid, vitamins A and D and other vitamins and minerals.  Also, the cream in the milk acts as a moisturizer.

Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) – This is the ingredient needed to create the soap.

Fragrance Oils The oils used are your favorite scents that elicit memories and emotions and can affect your mood.

Some soaps also contain oatmeal.

Oatmeal (Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Meal) – Oatmeal is not only great for you to eat, but it is also great for skin relief from a number of irritants, including a sunburn.  It restores essential minerals, and leaves your skin feeling soft and cared for.

Note:

* Glycerin – I don’t add glycerin to my soaps.  Glycerin is naturally retained during the soap making process.  It is a humectant (like honey) that draws moisture to the skin to help keep it hydrated.

 

 

In our luxurious Lotions

Avocado Oil (Persea Gratissima) – Avocado oil is a great source of Vitamins A, D and E, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Emulsifying Wax – This helps oils and water mix together in lotion into a stable emulsion.  Without it, they would eventually separate.

Distilled Water

Preservative (Phenoxyethanol (and) Methylparaben (and) Ethylparaben (and) Butylparaben (and) Propylparaben) – Preservatives are used in our lotion products.  It is a wide range preservative to prevent mold in products that have water in them.

Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii ) – Shea Butter is moisturizing, and can be calming to skin inflammation and also smooth skin.  It contains Vitamins A and E.

Stearic Acid – This is used as a thickening agent in our lotion.  It is a natural acid found in animal and plant fats.

Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Dulcis) – This oil has emollient properties and can moisturize without clogging pores.  Also, it can help with skin irritation and inflammation.  Sweet Almond Oil is rich with oleic and linoleic fatty acids.  Additionally it adds to soap lather.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol) – This vitamin has powerful antioxidant effects and encourages skin healing.

Fragrance Oils – Added to our products are your favorite scents that elicit memories and emotions and can affect your mood.
