Why homemade? Our family strives to live a healthy lifestyle. Through research we have come to realize that all the chemicals we put on our skin can be harmful. Since our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, and it readily absorbs what we put on it, it only makes sense to be careful. Almost all commercially manufactured soaps, lotions, and creams have parabens in them, not to mention other chemicals that might be harmful to our bodies. In an effort to eliminate as many harmful chemicals as possible in our household, we began to make our own soap several years ago. Little did I know the incredible difference it would make! Once you have enjoyed the rich, creamy, nourishing characteristics of homemade soap, there is no turning back.
History books tell us that Cleopatra's Beauty Secrets included bathing in goat's milk. The nutrients in the milk actually nourish then skin. We use all natural ingredients in our unscented soaps, and only add the best quality fragrances to those that are scented. We also use only fresh goat's milk. We formulate our own recipes to create the richest, most luxurious creamy lathers, and choose oils which provide the best balance for all types of skin. We have had people with sensitive skin sing the praises of our soaps, and others with particular skin challenges tell us how much they have improved. Unless requested we don't color our soaps, preferring the natural and varying shades that are created when goat milk goes through the soponification process.
Handmade soap, especially goat milk soap, is softer than comercially processed soap. It will not dry your skin, nor will it leave it oily. It cleans without leaving a film or residue. Once you've tried it for yourself, you'll no longer question why it is superior to commercially milled soaps.
