Additional Health Benefits

Fresh Goat Milk 
Goat milk soap is exactly what it sounds like, soap made from goat’s milk. Goat milk is rich in both saturated and unsaturated fats, making it ideal for soap production. The saturated fats in the milk increase the soap’s lather, while unsaturated fats provide moisturizing and nourishing properties.
Goat milk contains alpha hydroxyl acid which helps to remove dead skin cells, giving skin a more youthful appearance, it contains selenium, a mineral that is purported to help reduce skin cancer; it is anti-inflammatory due to the high fat content and antibacterial and antimicrobial, helping to eliminate acne. Goat milk is high in vitamin A, good for repairing skin tissues and reducing itchiness, beneficial for sufferers of eczema and psoriasis and it has been shown to have anti-aging properties.

Grass-fed Beef Tallow
Beef tallow from healthy, grass-fed cattle contains an incredible amount of nutrients that are good for skin and are also beneficial internally. Tallow is simply rendered beef fat. The rendering process cooks the raw fat, turning it into a hot liquid that becomes solid at room temperature. Grass-fed beef tallow is abundant in conjugated Linoleic acid (CLA) which has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, it is rich in minerals and full of soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, B12. It is also rich in palmitoleic acid (omega 7) one of skins building blocks that helps improve the protective barrier function of skin and stearic acid that aides in repairing damaged skin, improving skin’s flexibility and suppleness.
