Holidays are my favorite time of year!!  Well...usually...

It's tough with one kid in college and another going to high school out of town.  It is an adjustment.  

But we are making it work.

I never know what to write for these things, and when I do get inspiration, it's 2a.m.  

So...in the middle of the night last night, it came to me!  Since it's is cold weather season (at least in my part of the country) skin seems to be a great topic.  And with that, what do my products have to offer the average skin?  The oily skin?  The dry, cracked skin?  The sensitive skin?

One would think this topic was obvious.  And it is.  But when I sit down to type, crickets.  Crickets...I got nothing!

Let's get down to it!  I have seriously dry skin.  My kids suffered from severe eczema.  In the winter, my fingers and feet cracked so badly, I walked and worked in pain.  

Just milking the goats changed my fingers.  I haven't had cracked fingers in years- and doing barn chores in the winter...well, that's no small feat!!

The ingredients in my soaps, scrubs, and lotions were originally chosen to work for the skin in my home.  Over time, I honed the recipe to work for all skin types.  Each ingredient serves a purpose.  

What's so great about Goat's Milk?  That...is an excellent question!  

  •  Goat milk contains over 50 nutrients, minerals, acids and enzymes that serve to nourish and revitalize dehydrated skin. 
  •  Goat-milk soap isn’t a cure for skin ailments, however many sufferers of skin issues like psoriasis, acne and eczema have reported relief from their symptoms as a result of regular use. 
  • Goat milk is easily absorbed into the skin, moisturizing and restoring proteins, vitamins and minerals. 
  • Any goat milk is good, but raw is better.  Pastuerizing kills some of the properties that make the milk so great for the skin.
  •  Goat Milk is packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins like vitamin D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E.  And these can be absorbed through the skin.
  • No chemicals are needed to break down the skin, like with store bought soap.  Goat milk has natural lactic acid and alpha-hydroxy to help breakdown dead cells and removed them.

And most importantly, our goats are loved.  They are treated like beloved pets.  (Once in awhile, a baby has found a home in our house until strong enough to return to mom!)
