Goat Milk is one of nature's finest moisturizers and skin softeners due to its high butterfat content. People with very sensitive skin often find that goat milk soaps are very mild and non-irritating. It draws moisture to the skin, softens and nourishes skin, and soothes irritated skin conditions.
Rich in vitamins, goat milk also contains lactic acid, one of the most commonly used alpha hydroxy acids in skin care. Alpha-hydroxy acids penetrate the skin and have rejuvenating effects on skin cells. In addition to lactic acid, goat milk contains fatty acids that can help repair the skin barrier and probiotics that encourage the growth of normal skin flora.
Thanks to its rich fatty acid content, goat milk has skin-soothing properties which may help reduce the redness and itching associated with irritated skin conditions.
