Soaps, lotions, creams and sugar scrubs made from goat milk are nourishing for your skin…particularly for elderly skin.
The special fat and protein molecules from goat milk, along with an array of vitamins and minerals, are easily absorbed through the skin, providing hydration, a protective moisture barrier, and nourishment for the skin all at the same time.
Goat milk is rich in many vitamins and minerals that are absorbed through the skin. Particularly important to skin health is vitamin A, of which goat milk contains about 47% more than cow milk.
Goat milk products owe their natural ability to gently cleanse, soften and heal skin to several chemical properties. One is it’s fat and the protein composition. The fat composition itself contains significantly larger amounts of medium chain fatty acids, known as capric, caprylic and caproic acid. This enables your skin to absorb the nutrients.
A commonly used alpha hydroxy acid is lactic acid, which comes from milk. Exfoliation means that it removes the older, surface skin cells, revealing newer, fresher skin cells. This give your skin a more youthful-looking appearance, including reduced appearance of wrinkles, rough skin and uneven pigmentation.
