Goat’s milk is the dairy queen of skincare, known for its soothing, comforting and moisturising properties, it’s been hailed as a powerful skincare ingredient since ancient times. This age-old skincare ingredient even gets a thumbs up from dermatologists for being safe for sensitive and dry skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, keratosis pilaris or for those prone to redness or rosacea.
There are many benefits to goat’s milk and applying it daily can have transformative effects on skin health and appearance:
Lock in moisture: Goat’s milk is a natural moisturising ingredient that provides optimal hydration to soothe dry irritated skin and soften scaly patches, boosting moisture levels while strengthening the skin’s natural lipid (protective) barrier. It helps retain moisture and is chock full of vitamins and proteins that work to smooth the skin really effectively, leaving it feeling soft and calm.
Nourish skin: Seasonal changes, environmental aggressors, allergies, and even skincare products can all contribute to causing dry skin conditions. Goat’s milk is packed with vitamins and minerals that have incredible effects on dry flaky skin. It contains saturated and unsaturated fats that provide soothing replenishment to keep the skin healthy and moisturised.
Balance Skin: When it comes to healthy skin, pH levels play an essential role in keeping it moisturised. The pH levels in skin are reliant on its acid mantle. This mantle protects your skin against external aggressors like pollution, bacteria, and allergens. Goat’s milk has similar pH levels to human skin, meaning that it can help balance and retain the skin natural microbiome.
