Our Healthy Ingredients

Check out the many benefits of the ingredients in our soaps

Benefits of Goat's Milk:

Cream: The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of goat milk soaps. Goat milk soap will not dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy. It is also known to have strong anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of fat molecules in it. 


Minerals: Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium is believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun.


Vitamins: Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. Studies show that Vitamin A reduces lines and wrinkles, controls acne, and provides some psoriasis relief.


Alpha Hydroxy Acids: Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids, such as lactic acid, which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface by breaking down the bonds which holds the dead skin cells together. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking.  


No Chemicals: Many name brand and mass produced soaps contain multiple different chemicals that can negatively affect your skin. These soaps are actually considered synthetic detergents by the FDA. Little to no benefits are seen from these soaps except for killing germs good and bad.


Benefits of Shea Butter:

Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.  


Reduces Inflammation:  A study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation making it beneficial for some people with acne.  


Skin Smoothing: Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains ingredients that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction


Benefits of Sustainable Harvested Olive Oil:

Vitamins: Olive oil contains many vitamins, including A, D, and K, as well as vitamin E. 


Antioxidants: Olive oil is also an antioxidant, so it might help prevent or reverse damage from cancer-causing ultraviolet radiation. It has a very high concentration of an ingredient called squalene as compared to the other types of fats and oils that humans normally eat. The squalene is what gives olive oil the extra antioxidant boost.  


Moisturizes:If you’re prone to acne, using a soap made with olive oil may help decrease your acne by killing off the bacteria that causes the acne. 


Benefits of Coconut Oil:

Prevents Dryness: Coconut oil is an excellent massage oil that acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skin, including dry skin. Unlike mineral oil, there is no chance of having any adverse side effects on the skin from the application of this oil. Therefore, it is a safe solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. It also delays the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of skin, which normally accompany aging. 


Antioxidant properties: Coconut oil helps in preventing degenerative diseases like premature aging and also helps in treating various skin problems, including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections.


Benefits of Sustainabley Harvested Palm Oil:

Palm oil contains the hard to find toctrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family. The common form of vitamin E, tocopherol, has long been used to treat many skin ailments and is found in many anti-aging products. Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that helps the skin to fight free radicals that damage the skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Betty Kamen, PhD confirms that as a stronger antioxidant than tocopherols, toctrienols have been proven to be more effective in preventing aging and damage from free radicals. Used topically, as with tocopherol, toctrienols are able to penetrate deep into the skin’s layers to enable healing and protection from the base up.
