Briar Mtn Farm
Goat's Milk Soap
Rocky Mount, Virginia
A few years back we started making All Natural Goat's Milk Soap after we were beginning to find out that our young daughter was having skin irritations caused by using commercially produced soap. Shortly after giving her a bath we would see small rashes begin to develop. We tried several brands and it was so hard to find a brand that was natural. If you ever look at the ingredients on a bar of name brand soap you will find that about 80% of the items listed on there is stuff you have never heard of. Yes, it is true that name brands are cheaper than buying homemade / handcrafted soap, but you are buying the cheapest soap that they can produce without having any benefits at all from it other than being "clean". Our soap made from essential oil is a natural soap with added benefits such as helping alleviate symptoms of ezcema, psoriasis, dandruff, acne, insect bites, hair loss, stretch marks and wrinkles. The list goes on and on about all of the benefits from using essential oil in soaps and lotions. A bar of soap made with essential oil will have a slight fragrance of the oil that was used in its making (after it cures ), but you will notice after using it a few times that the wonderful smell will increase as you are working into the bar. This is a normal part of the drying process but it does not affect the benefits of the soap it is just that some essential oils have a very strong smell and some are faint. We also make soap that has fragrance oil in it. There is no added benefit to the fragrance oil it just has a stronger scent.The main ingredient of our soap is the Goat's Milk. The milk that we use is organic and is from our very own herd of Nubian Goats. We use only the freshest milk and other ingredients in every batch that we make. Goat's milk is one of mother nature's best moisturizers. It contains high amounts of proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Since goat's milk has a PH level very similar to that of our very own skin, it allows all of the good things that is found in the milk to be easily absorbed into our skin. We make each batch fresh from scratch using the same methods found in generations past.
