For starters, about 7% every bar is fresh, creamy goat milk. Goat milk provides extra moisturizing properties and skin nourishing vitamins and minerals. You are bathing with nourishing vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins every time you lather up. Goat milk also has the same pH as your skin, which means it won’t leave your skin feeling either dry or oily. We also use all skin-healthy, natural plant-based oils in our soap making process. 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.
In contrast, commercially produced soaps contain harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin, alcohol that dries it and, often petroleum products, including scents, that you wouldn’t want anywhere, much less on your skin. These soaps don’t even include glycerin (manufacturers siphon the glycerin off and use it in more profitable products such as lotion, cosmetics and ink, and bombs). Now you know why Farmer Jane Goat Milk Soap makes your skin feel so healthy, clean, and soft!
Farmer Jane Goat Milk Soap 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. We do not use any preservatives, hardeners, or fragrance oils. Lye, or sodium hydroxide, is saponified and neutralized by chemical reactions with fatty acids in oils when we make the soap.
Our soap is made using what is called a cold process soapmaking technique. A liquid lye mixture is combined with oils and makes a completely neutral product. 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. Then, they are ready to use!
All of our soaps contain essential oils derived from natural substances in actual aromatic plants. These essential oils include lavender, rosemary, orange, lemon, lime, ginger, grapefruit, peppermint, tea tree, clary sage, patchouli, clove, cinnamon and cedarwood.
