Why Use Goat Milk

What’s the big deal about goat’s milk? And it IS a big deal! Goat’s milk has long been used as a moisturizing treatment for dry, itchy skin. Think Cleopatra! It’s also extremely beneficial for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It is absoluteIMG_0149ly loaded with great stuff, including Vitamin A, Vitamins B-1, B-3 and B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Choline, Calcium, Phosphorous, naturally occurring sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, and many other trace elements. The ph of goat’s milk is very close to that of human skin, and this helps your skin maintain its healthy barrier to environmental bacteria. Goat milk casein is similar to that of human milk and is more easily digestible than cow’s milk for many people. Your skin is your largest organ and it absorbs much of what it comes in contphotoact with. It makes sense to soak up some goat’s milk!
