There are lots of skin conditions out there giving people sleepless nights and making them run from corner to corner in search of the best products to alleviate the symptoms. Unfortunately, the majority of these ‘solutions’ end up doing more harm than good. When it comes to the body, natural substances are nearly always best; less side effects, better absorption and better PH balance. Goat’s milk soap is one of these natural products. The chief ingredient is natural goats’ milk and some manufacturers add Aloe Vera, olive oil and palm to further enrich it. This soap has been of immense help to people with skin conditions.
Here is breakdown of some of the ingredients of common goat milk soaps:
This is a compound found in goat’s milk soap, which is a naturally occurring lactic acid. You may not have heard of this but it is seen in almost all cosmetic products you buy because of its positive effects on the skin. This compound, also known as AHA, helps in building connective tissue and collagen and increases the thickness of the skin without the risk of inflammation. It is important to note that in high concentrations this can be devastating to the skin. However, in goats milk soaps, the quantity found in it is not high enough to cause any adverse reactions, even for people with the most sensitive skin. The compound equally helps in exfoliating the skin, thereby making it ready to absorb the vitamins that can be found in the soap.
Most anti-aging products make this a compulsory component of their production. This is because it helps take care of the skin after it has been exposed to the sun. Anyone aiming for a healthy complexion needs vitamin A. What the retinoic acid (active form of vitamin A) does is that it makes the wrinkles on your skin less visible by restoring worn out elastic fibre. This compound alone has helped lots of adults and teenagers to deal with acne. Again, the quantity of this in the goat milk soap is perfectly balanced for maximum positive benefit. Too much of it leads to reddening of the skin and skin irritation.
This is another must have for any ‘skin solution’. This helps in hastening the speed at which the skin completes the repair and renewal process. In the right quantity vitamin E protects the skin against skin cancer and damage from the sun. Using a goat’s milk soap will afford you this protection.
These three are just a few of what can be found in goat’s milk soap; there are also fats, protein, minerals, etc. Other natural substances that would be added to the mix like olive, aloes etc. equally come with their own profound benefits.
It is widely recognized that goat’s milk soap is efficient in dealing with the following and relatively serious skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. It also helps eliminate odour, dryness, acne, dull skin tone, and etc. So if you are looking for that perfect skin type and complexion why not give it a go!
