"Goat's milk! What's the deal?"
This is a common reaction when customers see the lotions for the first time. I encourage them to give it a try and after one application they are amazed. The lotion is light, non-greasy, and absorbs right into the skin. And, they smell so good!
What our customers learn once they start using the lotion is how restorative it is for their skin. Goat's milk is rich in triglycerides and essential fatty acids. These fatty acids have a PH similar to humans, which allows it to absorbed easily into our skin. The fatty acids and triglycerides are also extremely moisturizing.
That's not all.
Goat's milk has unique properties that make it nourishing to our skin. It contains the mineral selenium which is known to protect skin from harmful UV rays, and can help with skin that is already sun damaged. It is rich in vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C, D, and E, as well as zinc and amino acids, all of which are important for healthy skin.
The lactic acid in the milk is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that acts to gently slough off dead skin cells. This allows the vitamins and minerals to penetrate the skin and helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to hydrate and brighten the skin.
