Our journey to help our sons skin continued, and while looking for a more viable (and less messy) solution to easing Chance’s eczema outside of adding handfuls of oatmeal to his baths, Dwight learned that while goat’s milk was a superior beverage to consume, when absorbed by the skin, it offered an array of benefits:
Goat’s milk is full of vitamins, proteins, and minerals, is easily absorbed by the body, and has a pH that is relatively close to that of the human body
This is what sparked our interest in goat milk soap! Taking fresh goat’s milk from our goats and adding in a few more ingredients (like the combination of oils we use), Dwight made our first two batches of goat milk soap — one unscented version and the other a mix of oatmeal and honey. We gave them a test run in the shower and instantly fell in love with them! After plenty of “product research”, there were a few things that we noticed from using the bars of goat milk soap: it lathered really well and left our skin feeling soft and smooth.
