Our Natural Soap
Our skin is our largest organ and studies have shown that approximately 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream. So why not use a natural soap that is actually good for your skin! Goats milk is very high in vitamins, minerals, nutrients, protein & lipids which help nourish your skin and remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple. All of our soaps contain only natural plant based oils.
Whether you have dry or sensitive skin or you just want to use all-natural, healthy soap on your skin, luxurious Farmer Jane Goat Milk Soap is udderly good for you!
Every bar contains fresh, creamy goat milk. Goat milk provides extra moisturizing properties and skin nourishing vitamins and minerals, so every time you lather up you are bathing with nourishing vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins. Goat milk also has the same pH as your skin, which means it won’t leave your skin feeling either dry or oily. Finally, our soap is handmade, which means it contains moisturizing glycerin, a natural byproduct of the soap making process. All of which means our soaps are luxurious and rich and leave your skin feeling great.
Our Healthy Ingredients
Our soaps are 100% natural, and are made with goat milk, water, sodium hydroxide (lye), olive oil, organic sustainable (RFSO certified) palm oil, beeswax, castor oil, essential oils and a lot of love.
Goat Milk: Goat milk contains alpha hydroxy acids which help remove dead cells from the skin. It has a high fat content which helps hydrate the skin. Furthermore it contains vitamins A and B2 which nourish the skin.
Coconut oil: Coconut oil is full of vitamin E and antioxidants; it moisturizes, soothes, and fights the effects of aging (i.e. wrinkles and saggy skin.) Coconut oil contributes to our goat milk soap’s amazing lather.
Olive oil: High in Oleic acid, this oil will absorb into the skin and form a protective barrier against the elements. It also acts as a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and is said to help aid skin cell regeneration
Palm oil: Our palm oil is organic and sustainably harvested. It contributes to a firm, long lasting bar of soap and a wonderful lather. As for health benefits, palm oil is also loaded with vitamin E and is extremely moisturizing.

Our Natural, Healthy, Handcrafted Soap
Our soap is made using what is called a cold process soapmaking technique. After milking, the fresh goat milk is immediately frozen, which prevents it from burning during the chemical process of soap making. The frozen milk is blended with a lye and water mixture so the high temperature of a lye-generated chemical reaction does not destroy the fragile nature of the milk. Coconut oil and palm oil are heated, mixed with olive oil and then cooled to bring them to the same temperature as the milk/lye blend. When the lye mixture is combined with oils, it makes a completely neutral product. Plant-based essential oils, along with castor oil to make the soap more moisturizing, are added and then the oils and soap/lye mix are combined and saponified (turned into soap by reaction with an alkali) using a hand blender. We pour our soaps into molds the day we make it and a few days later we cut them into bars. Then, they cure (or rest and let dry out) for 4 to 6 weeks after which they are ready to use!
