Q. Why do you use goat milk in soap?A. Because of the nutrients contained in goat milk it has been used throughout the ages in many bath and beauty products. Goat milk is full of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fatty acids which are great for the skin. It also contains a lot of fat which creates a very moisturizing bar of soap. We milk our goats and use their fresh milk in our soaps.Q. Why use natural goat milk soap instead of common commercial store bought soap?A. Commercial soaps are nothing more than harsh detergents, chemicals and petroleum products that strip away your skins natural oils, often leaving you with dry, itchy, irritated skin. That's how it left mine for 12 years. In the soap making process glycerin is naturally produced. Glycerin is very beneficial in keeping your skin moisturized and healthy. In the commercial soap making process the glycerin is extracted from the soap and then sold and used in other beauty products. This is another reason commercial soaps leave your skin so dry. Our goat milk soap with it's naturally occurring glycerin will leave your skin soft and moisturized.Q. Is there lye in your soap and how do you make it?A. We do use lye in the soap making process. You can't make soap without it. When our soaps are done curing there is no lye left in them. We superfat our soaps which means that we use more fat than what is required for the lye to react with. This creates a very moisturizing bar of soap.Our soap is also made in small batches. We use the cold process method and then let it cure for 6-8 weeks before selling it. This creates a mild, harder bar of soap that will last longer.Q. What do you scent your soaps with?A. We use pure essential oils and phthalate free fragrance oils. Our pure essential oil soaps don't have any fragrance oils in them. We also make three unscented soaps. They include our castille soap, which is the one we recommend for those with severe skin issues, an unscented oatmeal & honey soap and then a plain unscented bar. Q. Why don't you color your soaps?A. We believe in keeping our ingredients simple and natural. The more ingredients used the more likely someone will have a sensitivity to it. Sometimes less is better.Q. Do you make custom soap?A.
