Why Goat Milk?
DID YOU KNOW?
Goat milk has been used for centuries as a home remedy to treat issues ranging from indigestion to asthma. So long as it's not pasteurized, it's the milk of choice for those suffering from lactose-intolerance.
Around the world and throughout history, people have more commonly drunk goat's milk over any other animal's, including cow's milk.
Goat milk is naturally rich in vitamins and vital lipids (fats). It's loaded with vitamins A, B, C, and D, essential vitamins for healthy skin. Goat milk also contains protein, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
Goat milk is very gentle and has a pH level that is very near to that of human skin. It contains Caprylic Acid, a form of alpha-hydroxy acids, which aids in cellular renewal. These gentle acids naturally exfoliate the skin, removing dirt and dead skin cells, leaving behind beautiful healthy new skin. The pH and gentle nature of the acids make it great for your skin—sensitive or not.
These types of acids are a staple in skincare—from acne to anti-aging products. They are commonly extracted from milk, fruits, or plants, and are added to skincare products. Goat milk naturally has the sought-after acids which brighten the complexion and give way to healthy new skin.
Human skin is slightly acidic, with a 5.5 pH balance. When our bodies come in contact with substances too alkaline, the skin becomes dry and sensitive. The effects are clinically correlated with eczema, inflammation, wrinkles, psoriasis, abrasions, rosacea, and sagging skin. Goat milk, with a pH of 6, lines up closely to our human skin whereas most store-bought soaps have a pH of 9 or 10.
Goat milk is rich in protein. It contains A2 caseins, a specific family of phosphoproteins that our bodies more easily process. A2 caseins can be found in human nursing mother's milk, unlike milk from cows, which contain A1 caseins.
Antimicrobials and Vitamins A and B are packed in raw goat milk and they have a naturally regenerative effect on the skin. While Caprylic acids scrub away dead skin cells, vitamins promote growth of healthier, more youthful looking skin. Scientific studies on Vitamin A consistently show that it reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
We milk, feed, and care for the goats ourselves. We have about a dozen precious goat friends that live and graze on our land. Our beehives are kept on farms that do not spray pesticides and where the farmers truly care about the health of their crop, thereby supporting our efforts. We personally care for the bees, harvesting the honey in the spring, and fortifying the hives in winter.
