Typical natural soap is made using a process called Saponification where an acidic material – like fats and oils with a base called lye. The lye is usually made from water and sodium hydroxide. In case of goat milk soap, natural goat milk is used instead of water. This gives the soap a creamier consistency due to the presence of naturally occurring fats.
Goat milk is rich in both saturated and unsaturated fats, making it ideal for soap production. Saturated fats increase a soap’s lather while the unsaturated fats provide moisturizing and nourishing properties. The high amount of fats in Goat Milk soap ensures that while cleansing the skin from dirt, it doesn’t leave the skin dry and dehydrated. The rich content of fatty acids and Cholesterol in the goat milk act as a natural booster to your skin as the skin membrane itself is made from these elements.
According to this study, Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are very helpful in addressing a variety of skin conditions, such as scars, age spots, and hyperpigmentation, due to their natural ability to exfoliate.
Another study has shown that Lactic acid, a naturally occurring AHA found in goat milk soap, has been shown to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing for a more youthful complexion.
Moreover, goat milk contains probiotics like Lactobacillus, which is responsible for producing lactic acid. It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects in the body, including the skin.
The Goat Milk soap from Ayur By Nature has added plant-based oils like Coconut Oil and Olive Oil which adds additional benefits like increased content of healthy and nourishing fats. The Palmarosa essential oil gives the Goat Milk Soap from Ayur By Nature, a natural and healthy fragrance.
Most of the commercially available soaps today are not really soaps by their regulatory definition. They are more of synthetic detergent products than actual soaps. Ayur By Nature products are true soaps prepared by the saponification process using natural elements instead of synthetic elements and chemicals.
