What's so Great About Goat Milk?

With so many skincare ingredients, formulas and options available. It has become increasingly difficult to decide which ones are best for your skin. 

Throughout history, Goat milk has been a key ingredient in many skincare formulas. Rather than striping skin of it's protective layer, goat milk nourishing our skin's precious microbiome. While the evidence has been around for centuries, only now do we have actual science to prove that it's as good for your skin as they say. 

History Of Goat Milk in Cosmetics

Goat milk has been used in cosmetics, especially soap, for centuries. While it's easy to write an entire blog post on why goat milk has been well loved for this long, we'll stick to the basics. 

Goat milk has been traced back to 51-30 B.C, during Cleopatra's rein. It is said that she bathed regularly in goat milk in order to keep her skin soft and supple. One of the most influential Queens of all time knew what she was doing. 

Goat milk proceeded to grow in use and popularity throughout the 1500s and early 2000s. From Queen Elizabeth, to the milkmaids of Europe, Goat milk has been a standard of beauty routine's everywhere. 

What's so Great About Goat Milk?

What is so great about goat milk? Where do we begin? 

Alpha Hydroxy Acids

One of the greatest benefits of Goat Milk is Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Goat milk contains good-for-your-skin acids, such as lactic acid, which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. The daily turnover of your skin cells is a vital part of keeping your skin youthful, without harsh chemicals such as Tretinoin and Retin-A. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. What makes alpha-hydroxy acids so effective? They break down the bonds that hold your skin cells together, thus allowing new skin cells to break through. This is why goat milk lotion is celebrated for its ability to soothe and heal eczema as well as delay signs of aging.


Goat milk contains many vitamins (A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and many more), but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. Vitamin A has been clinically shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief. Most water-based lotions and soaps are not artificially fortified with vitamins that provide the same benefits of Goat Milk. 


Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium is has been extensively studied by scientists and proven to prevent skin cancer. It is believed that Selenium prevents damage to the epidermis from excessive time in the sun. Although the water used in other cosmetics may contain minerals such as calcium, sodium, or iron (commonly found in tap water), they provide little to know benefit when it comes to protecting your skin form the sun.

Anti-acne & Inflammatory properties:

Goat milk's fat molecule content is key to reducing skin inflammation and soothing dry and damaged skin. Goat Milk possesses an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effect that not only calms and soothes redness and inflammation, but its anti-bacterial properties delay the growth of microbial organisms that spur the spread of acne.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
