BENEFITS OF GOAT'S MILK
DAIRY GOAT PRODUCTS
There is no perceptible difference between the flavor of properly handled goat milk and that of cow milk. Goat milk is whiter than whole cow milk. Butter and cheese made from goat's milk are also white, but may be colored during processing.
Goat milk is delicious, nutritious and wholesome. It may not be a miracle food, but it does have distinct characteristics that make it beneficial. The fat globules are smaller than those in cow milk and the curd is softer and smaller, making the digestion easier. Those who are allergic to cow milk may tolerate and thrive on goat milk.
Goat milk is used for drinking, cooking and baking. It is used to make cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt and body products. Goat milk is naturally emulsified. Cream does not rise readily, but can be obtained with a mechanical separator.
Goat milk is similar in composition to cow milk, but some important differences exist in the protein structure. Following is a comparison of average milk composition, evaluating human, cow and goat milk nutritional values.
GOAT MILK SOAP
Apart from it being delicious, goat milk has been known for its benefits for centuries. It’s packed with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as lactic acids which helps exfoliate the skin and remove the layer of dead skin cells from the surface. AHAs break down the bonds which cause the dead skin cells to stick together. This makes goat milk soap particularly effective at giving you radiant, younger and smoother skin.
Goat milk soap is also packed with vitamins. Vitamin A boosts the skin’s natural repair processes. Studies have shown that products high in it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help control acne and provide relief to psoriasis and a range of other skin conditions.
The pH balance of the fatty acids found in goat milk is very similar to the levels in the human body. This makes it easy for your skin to absorb the beneficial minerals, vitamins and fatty acids.
While goat milk soap is great at removing dirt and impurities from the skin, it is also gentle for most skin types. It soothes skin and leaves it feeling soft and healthy.
Goat milk soap adds moisture to the skin and prevents it from drying out. It also helps the skin form a moisture barrier to protect it from damage.
People who struggle with chronic dry skin can use our soap daily to help prevent it. Our soap can be used on any part of the body, including areas that are more likely to dry out such as the knees, elbows, face, hands, and ankles.
