Benefits of Goat's Milk


Most soap is made from a water base which is fine and dandy but using goat’s milk as a base has many added benefits. Goat’s milk soap is known to be extremely moisturizing.  The reason for this is that Goat’s milk is rich in essential fatty acids and triglycerides. These essential fatty acids have a unique PH similar to humans, so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed by our skin. These fatty acids and triglycerides are super moisturizing.  Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap.

People with dry or sensitive skin should switch to goat’s milk-based soaps.  Or even people with healthy and clear skin who want it to stay that way.  Because Goat’s milk soap contains a natural chemical called alpha-hydroxy and lactic acid, which removes dead skin, it can also be beneficial for people with eczema and psoriasis.  The alpha-hydroxy acids are so effective because they break down the bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin conditions by removing irritation.

Goat’s milk is a must, especially during the winter months.  Using our goat’s milk loofahs in the shower daily can help fend off dry unhealthy skin. 


Coffee Beans Help Your Skin Too?

Coffee beans are nature's fixer-upper.  While we all know the benefits that caffeine has on the mind and body when we drink a cup of coffee, the lesser known benefits are the effects it has when we apply it to our skin. These benefits are why we chose to use it in our famous coffee sugar scrub.  Coffee helps to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize the skin making it an excellent face mask.  Using our coffee sugar scrub as a face mask is one of many uses we recommend.

     Caffeine is the main compound that is found abundantly in tea and coffee plants around the world.  It helps tighten the skin, which can help reduce cellulite. When applied under and around the eyes, it can minimize the appearance of puffy eyes because caffeine restricts blood vessels, which reduces swelling and inflammation. It can also help treat non-hereditary dark circles under the eyes.  Caffeine is also loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines. Try the effects for yourself with a jar of our Coffee Sugar Scrub.

What is Loofah? Where Does it Come From? - Fun Fact for your day


   Luffa, also commonly spelled as loofah, is part of the cucumber family.  Yes, cucumbers!  Bet you didn’t know that.  Real natural loofah is grown heavily in Asia and India, but we source our loofah locally.   If loofah is harvested early in its growing stages, it can be eaten as a fibrous vegetable.  It also has many other uncommon applications.  For example; In Paraguay, panels are made out of luffa combined with other vegetable matter and recycled plastic. These can be used to create furniture and construct houses.

     If the loofah is allowed to fully ripen and then dry out on the vine, the skin disappears leaving only the fibers and seeds, which can be easily shaken out. This is what makes for a great dish scrub and for our customer favorite Goats Milk scrubbers.  Raw loofah is the best texture for skin polishing as it is not too rough or soft for most skin types.
