Goat milk soap is exactly what it sounds like — soap made from goat’s milk. It has recently gained popularity, but using goat milk and other fats for cosmetics and soaps stems back thousands of years (2Trusted Source).
Goat milk soap is made via the traditional soap-making process known as saponification, which involves combining an acid — fats, and oils — with a base called lye (3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source).
In most soaps, lye is made by combining water and sodium hydroxide. However, when making goat milk soap, goat milk is used instead of water, allowing for a creamier consistency due to naturally occurring fats (4Trusted Source).
Goat milk is rich in both saturated and unsaturated fats, making it ideal for soap production. Saturated fats increase a soap’s lather — or production of bubbles — while unsaturated fats provide moisturizing and nourishing properties (4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source).
Additionally, other plant-based oils like olive or coconut oil can be used in goat milk soap to further increase the content of healthy, nourishing fats (4Trusted Source).
May help prevent skin conditions.
Due to its lactic acid content, goat milk soap may help control or prevent acne, as well as eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis.
Lactic acid is a natural exfoliant that gently removes dead skin cells, which helps prevent acne by keeping pores clear of dirt, oil, and excess sebum (21Trusted Source).
Moreover, goat milk soap is gentle and may help maintain the skin’s moisture. This is unlike many face cleansers containing harsh ingredients that can dry out the skin, potentially leading to excess oil production and clogged pores (22Trusted Source).
Although promising, treatment for acne varies from person to person. Therefore, consult your dermatologist or another healthcare professional to ensure you’re using the best product for your skin.
