Dairy Goats And Skin Care
You may wonder how, in the world, dairy goats can help you manage skin care issues. It is true that dairy goats, such as the Alpine and the Saanen, provide milk used in bath and body products that are healthful for your skin. How are they healthful? I will explain, but first, here are some fast facts about these goats.
The name Alpine or French-Alpine goats are used synonymously. This goat originated in the Alps of Europe. They range in beautiful colors from pure white to varying shades or combining colors of gray, brown, black, red, buff, fawn, and more. Their hair is basically short. They have heroic temperaments and provide awesome milk!
The Saanen dairy goat originated in Switzerland, specifically, the Saanen Valley. They are white, cream colored, and some have spots on their skin. Their hair is generally short. The does, female goats, produce large amounts of milk. They have “peppy” temperaments and provide wonderful milk!
Milk from these dairy goats is, an ingredient, used to make mild and gentle natural bath and body products such as: handcrafted soaps, lotions, face cream, shampoo, foot scrubs, a bath soak, and more!
Recent studies have shown that goat milk can provide anti-aging properties. It aids in the regeneration of collagen under the skin, negating some of the visible signs of aging. It’s a buffer that leaves the skin very close to its natural pH. In fact, after using commercial soap, even the mild varieties, skin takes an average of two hours to re-establish its correct pH. This explains the uncomfortable, itchy, and tight feeling skin so many people experience after bathing. It is also the basis for the claim that soap should not be used on the face. However the concern, of using soap on the face, disappears when you use goat milk
