Goat’s milk is different from cow’s milk in several ways. Goat’s milk contains higher levels of magnesium, potassium, and lactic acid; and the fat particles are smaller. Goat’s milk also contains ample amounts of calcium, Vitamins A and B, and fatty acids. These properties contribute to the moisturizing, skin softening, and exfoliating properties of beauty products made with goat’s milk. Additionally, soap made with goat’s milk is said to help with eczema. In reviewing companies on ShopWithLeslie, I was moved by the stories and testimonials provided by some vendors about the usefulness of their products to remedy eczema and other skin conditions.
There are many choices of goat’s milk soap from black owned brands.
- Bubble Bistro offers a “honey cream luxe” moisture bar that includes honey, hemp seed oil, and fair trade shea butter.
- Cream & Coco offers a “pear riesling sweetcream” goat’s milk bar that also exfoliates.
- Divine Clementine’s Soap on a Rope offers several different types of goat’s milk soaps made with various herbs.
