We see them all over the internet, in cute little apothecary shops, or even at our favorite local markets. But why is everyone selling them now?
According to the Huffington Post, because goat milk soaps are small-batch products, they usually contain far more natural ingredients. Not only is this good for the health and beauty of our bodies, but the environment as well.
While we might think that our favorite big-name brands are providing us with antibacterial soaps that help to prevent viruses, the truth is, plain old soap and water are what really does the trick! The chemical ingredients that are included in antibacterial soaps warrant unnecessary risks and down the road potentially cause more harm than good.
Goat milk soap allows for gentle cleansing that doesn't remove the skin's natural fatty acids. And more now than ever, due to the nature of COVID-19 and the need to wash our hands more frequently than before, we want a soap that is not going to strip away from the natural moisture that our bodies produce. Big-name brands do just that! They chip away at the skin barrier leaving your skin feeling dry, tight, and irritated.
Let's not forget about the anti-aging benefits of goat milk soaps as well! According to Healthline, the milk is a good source of vitamin A which is a fat-soluble vitamin known to have anti-aging properties. Additionally, it is also a good source of selenium (a mineral that supports a healthy skin membrane) which may also help address psoriasis symptoms like xerosis (dry skin).
It is no question that goat milk soap's high cholesterol and fatty acid levels provide the additional moisture that we so desperately need right now to help our skin stay fresh and youthful. But what about those exfoliants that we need to get rid of dead skin cells as well?
The compounds (Alpha-hydroxy acids - AHAs) included in goat milk soap are great for just that! Not only do these guys have the added benefit of making our skin feel smooth and rejuvenated, but they are great for sensitive skin as well.
We don't have to tell you that there are a TON of benefits to switching up your routine and moving over to goat milk soap.
And if you're still not sold, remember that because goat milk soaps are small-batch products, they are most likely handmade by a small business just like #EINNIM.
So, support a #localbusiness today and help the environment flourish and economy grow in the process!
