The benefits of goat’s milk soap for healthy skin

Who knew goat’s milk soap could be so good for you?

Soaps and other skincare products made from goat’s milk offer many benefits. Goat milk has unique properties that make it super friendly to human skin, and your pets will love it too.

Handmaking goat’s milk products allows total control over the ingredients and how they are made. Here at Mountain Goat Soap, we use natural ingredients in the soap-making process to ensure maximum care for your skin. Let’s investigate some potential health benefits of handmade goat’s milk soap.

Moisturising and Nourishing

Goat’s milk is high in natural fats. Caprylic acid, for example, helps moisturise the skin and retain its natural moisture barrier. Goat’s milk soap has a super creamy texture, leaving your skin feeling soft and nourished.

Many people who use goat’s milk soaps report no longer needing to moisturise after showering. It can be a great relief for people with dry, sensitive skin.

Puppys can use goat's milk soap too!! Our pet cleanser bars are great for dogs with sensitive skin.

Gentle and Mild

Goat’s milk soap is generally milder and more gentle than traditional soaps, making it suitable for people with sensitive or irritated skin. The natural proteins and fats in goat’s milk can be very soothing for human and pet skin, effectively calming inflammation and redness.

Vitamins and Minerals

Goat’s milk is a natural source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, D, E, and various B vitamins. Vitamin E is well known to nourish the skin, promoting healthy cell regeneration and a vibrant complexion.


The pH level of goat’s milk is closer to human skin than many commercial soaps. This similarity helps maintain the skin’s natural pH balance essential for healthy skin function. Using goat’s milk soap can help prevent the skin from becoming too dry or oily.

Anti-Aging Properties

Goat’s milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) like lactic acid, which promote gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. Regular use of goat’s milk soap over time can improve the feel of your skin. Some people report softer skin on areas that are usually rough, like elbows and knees!

Calming and Soothing

Goat’s milk contains natural ingredients like amino acids and fatty acids with soothing properties. These components can help alleviate skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, itching, redness, and irritation.

Naturally Cleansing

Handmade goat’s milk soap effectively cleanses the skin by removing dirt, oil, and impurities without stripping away natural oils. In our experience it can really help to calm skin breakouts, promoting healthier-looking skin.
