Goat’s Milk!

There’s been a recent trend toward goat’s milk as not only a healthy alternative to cow’s milk to be ingested, but as a great alternative as a topical. This is typically in the form of soaps and lotions/creams, and is one of our main ingredients.

Why is it superior?  The benefits of using goat’s milk include:

  • Natural acids, which help the regeneration of cells
  • Vitamins, particularly Vitamin A, which is good for reducing skin damage, alleviating acne, dry/cracked skin, eczema, and other minor skin conditions, and as a preventative measure, maintaining overall skin health
  • Cream, which contains fat that is helpful for moisturizing,  and
  • Minerals, which help reduce sun damage, passed on directly from the goat’s body through its diet.

Commercial products can add those things to their formulas, but most of them do not, and the results are not as effective as Natural.

We buy our milk from local farmers, which helps the economy and other small, often family-owned businesses like ours.  And that’s always a good thing.

Shea Butter!

According to Wikipedia:

Shea butter is an off-white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa).  Shea butter is a triglyceride (fat) derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturizer, salve, or lotion. Shea butter is edible and is used in food preparation in Africa. Occasionally, the chocolate industry uses shea butter mixed with other oils as a substitute for cocoa butter, although the taste is noticeably different.

Hey I'm Shea

Ah, shea butter.  Versatile, pleasant texture, and oh so good for the skin. We use refined shea because it has filtered out the shell and fiber that tends to get left behind in raw product, giving it a nice glide.  We strive to make everything with the very best purity.

For a most excellent and more detailed resource of the benefits of using shea butter products on your skin, read THIS ARTICLE and see why we swear by it.

We will spotlight more of our ingredients as we go.  Thank you so much for stopping by our blog and reading what we have to share with you!  We’re only just getting started; there will be lots more to come, and we hope you’ll visit us again soon.

Til the morrow,
