Nuluv Goat Milk Soaps

Benefits of goat milk soap

Goat milk soap has several beneficial characteristics that can help keep your skin looking and feeling great.

1. Gentle cleanser

Most commercially made soaps contain harsh surfactants that can strip your skin of natural moisture and oils, leaving it feeling dry and tight.
To maintain your skin’s natural moisture, it’s best to use products that don’t remove the natural fats in the skin barrier.
Goat milk soap boasts high amounts of fats, particularly caprylic acid, allowing for gentle removal of dirt and debris without removing the skin’s natural fatty acids.

2. Rich in nutrients

Goat milk is rich in fatty acids and cholesterol, which make up a large portion of the skin membrane. A lack of these components in your skin can lead to dryness and irritation Furthermore, the milk is a good source of vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin shown to have anti-aging properties
Finally, it’s a good source of selenium, a mineral shown to support a healthy skin membrane. It may even improve psoriasis symptoms like dry skinHowever, nutrient levels in goat milk soap largely depend on the
amount of milk added during production, which is usually proprietary information. Moreover, it’s difficult to know how effective these nutrients are due to a lack of research.

3. May improve dry skin

Dry skin — known as xerosis — is a condition caused by low water levels in the skin.  Normally, your skin’s lipid barrier slows moisture loss. That’s why low lipid levels can lead to excess moisture loss and dry, irritated, and tight skinPeople with certain dry skin conditions, namely psoriasis and eczema, often have lower levels of lipids, such as cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acids, in the skinTo improve dry skin, the lipid barrier must be restored and rehydrated. Goat milk soap’s high cholesterol and fatty acid levels may replace missing fats while providing moisture to allow for better water retention.  Additionally, the use of harsh soaps can strip the skin of its natural moisture, which can worsen dry skin. Using a gentle, fat-rich soap like goat milk soap can support and replenish the skin’s moisture.

4. Natural exfoliant

Goat milk soap contains compounds that may exfoliate your skin.  Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as scars, age spots, and hyperpigmentation, due to their natural ability to exfoliateLactic acid, a naturally occurring AHA found in goat milk soap, has been shown to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing for a more youthful complexionWhat’s more, lactic acid is known as one of the gentlest AHAs, making it a suitable option for those with sensitive skinHowever, the amount of AHAs in goat milk soap remains unknown, making it difficult to know how effective it is at exfoliating the skin. Therefore, more research is needed.

5. Supports a healthy skin microbiome

Goat milk soap may support a healthy skin microbiome — the collection of healthy bacteria on your skin’s surface.  Due to its gentle dirt-removing properties, it doesn’t strip your skin’s natural lipids or healthy bacteria. Maintaining your skin’s microbiome improves its barrier against pathogens, potentially preventing various skin disorders like acne and eczemaMoreover, goat milk contains probiotics like Lactobacillus, which is responsible for producing lactic acid. It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects in the body, including the skinHowever, no research is available on goat milk soap and the skin microbiome, so studies are needed. Nonetheless, using this soap will likely be a better alternative than soap made with strong and harsh surfactants that strip the skin’s natural barrier.

6. May prevent acne

Due to its lactic acid content, goat milk soap may help control or prevent acneLactic acid is a natural exfoliant that gently removes dead skin cells, which helps prevent acne by keeping pores clear of dirt, oil, and excess sebumMoreover, 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.
