Goat’s milk has been used as a natural ingredient in skin care products for centuries. In fact, ancient Egyptians which are known for their innovative traditions, are believed to have been some of the first humans to use goat milk for skin care. Goats produce about 2% of the world’s total annual milk supply. Fresh goat’s milk is mainly supplied as a health product to people intolerant of cow’s milk and those suffering from bronchial and asthmatic conditions. It has also recently become more popular as a gourmet milk, as cheese and yogurt.
HOW IT’S MADE?
One purpose of drying milk is to preserve it. Milk powder has a far longer shelf life than liquid milk and does not need to be refrigerated, due to its low moisture content. Powdered milk is usually made with the spray drying process of the goat’s milk. Pasteurized milk is first concentrated in an evaporator to approximately 50 percent milk solids. The resulting concentrated milk is then sprayed into a heated chamber where the water almost instantly evaporates, leaving fine particles of powdered milk solids.
WHY DO WE USE IT?
We understand it’s not Vegan friendly, however this product is just too good not to use! This full cream milk is a natural emollient that helps soothe and moisturize the skin. It contains vitamins A, B6, B12 and E. Goats milk has 3 times more beta casein than cow’s milk. Caseins are easily absorbed into the skin and allow for quick hydration of dry skin. The content of triglycerides, capric, caprylic and caproic acid helps balance the skins natural pH and promotes natural exfoliation of dry skin. Lactic acid that goat’s milk contains may assist in breakdown of dead skin cells, is packed with essential fatty acids and amino acids. The cream found in goat’s milk has a high fat molecule content making it extremely moisturising, and helps keep the skin naturally supple. Goat’s milk is an excellent ingredient to include in soap, cream and lotion formulations.
