With so many soap options available, it can be difficult to know which one is best for your skin.
What’s more, many commercially made soaps aren’t real soap. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), only a few soaps on the market are true soaps, while the majority of cleansers are synthetic detergent products (1Trusted Source- FDA).
Given the increased demand for natural soaps, goat milk soap has soared in popularity for its soothing properties and short ingredient list.
Goat milk soap is exactly what it sounds like — soap made from goat’s milk. It has recently gained popularity, but using goat milk and other fats for cosmetics and soaps stems back thousands of years (2Trusted Source - National Institute of Health).
Goat milk is rich in both saturated and unsaturated fats, making it ideal for soap production. Saturated fats increase a soap’s lather — or production of bubbles — while unsaturated fats provide moisturizing and nourishing properties.
Additionally, other plant-based oils like olive or coconut oil can be used in goat milk soap to further increase the content of healthy, nourishing fats.
