Goat Milk Soap for Acne

Goat Milk Soap for Acne

If you have acne-prone skin, you’ve probably tried a lot of different skin care products seeking help for this very common skin problem. Acne is a chronic skin condition that can cause both physical discomfort and emotional distress. 

In the course of trying to fight acne, many people find themselves spending a fortune on skin care products that tout acne-fighting properties. Many of these products overdry your skin, inevitably making the acne worse in the long run. In recent years, Goat Milk Soap has become a popular alternative to these products and has seen proven success at fighting acne. 

Let’s take a deeper look at how Goat Milk Soap can help you fight acne without overdrying your skin or using harsh chemical-laden products.

What Causes Acne

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Bacteria can then build up under the skin, causing whiteheads, blackheads or cystic pimples. Acne commonly occurs on the face, but it also frequently appears on the shoulders, chest, and back. 


Acne can result from poor hygiene, but it can also be caused by hormonal disruptions or imbalances, stress, changing weather conditions, food intolerances, and even some medications. This is why acne can be such a frustrating condition to manage; the cause can be different for many people and narrowing down the answer can take time and patience.

Natural Goat Milk Soap Is An Acne-Fighting Cleanser

Most acne-fighting skin care products contain harsh surfactants (detergents) that strip your skin of moisture as they work to dry up the excess oils that may contribute to acne. The problem is, these products are too strong and often defeat their own purpose. When the skin is overdry, your body naturally ramps up oil production to maintain your skin’s PH balance and prevent it from peeling, flaking, or suffering from environmental irritations. Acne thrives in skin that is not PH balanced.

Goat Milk Soap is an all natural product that won’t overstrip your skin and maintains its naturally occurring PH balance, because the PH balance in Goat Milk is extremely close to our own. Goat Milk Soap does not contain the surfactants that are added to store-bought products to cleanse and create a lather; Goat Milk Soap has a thick, luxurious lather thanks to the creaminess of the fresh Goat Milk in every bar. It also has impressive moisturizing capabilities that prevent your skin from drying out and help maintain the ideal level of moisture that your skin needs to be at its healthiest.

Goat Milk Soap Has Powerful Acne-Fighting Properties

Goat Milk Soap is not only an effective cleanser, it is also hypoallergenic and the proteins in Goat Milk Have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it a great choice for even the most sensitive, acne-prone skin. 

In addition to moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties, the lactic acids present in Goat Milk encourage cell turnover and revitalization. These lactic acids gently exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells, increasing cell turnover and encouraging new skin to the surface. This helps to keep your pores from clogging, speeds healing, and reduces the appearance of acne scars. Many people say they specifically use Goat Milk Soap for acne scars with great success!

Furthermore, it is non-comedogenic (won’t block pores) and packed full of skin-nourishing proteins, the powerful antioxidants in Vitamins A, C, and E, and it protects your skin’s natural microbiome. Meaning, it kills the bad, acne-causing bacteria but leaves the necessary beneficial bacteria on your skin’s surface in place. 

Low-Cost Healthy Skin Support

Store-bought skin care products for acne can be pricey. And acne can occur anywhere on your body. Some people have swaths of it on their shoulders, back, neck, and other areas besides their face. It can be prohibitively costly to use drugstore acne cleansers and products when acne affects multiple areas on your body.

With a bar of Goat Milk Soap, you can cost-effectively fight acne anywhere and everywhere on your body. And it goes beyond simply fighting acne. Using Goat Milk Soap actually feeds your skin the vitamins, minerals, and proteins it needs to be as healthy as possible. So, you're doing more than simply fighting acne (or eczema, another great use for Goat Milk Soap), you’re giving your skin the very best—every time you wash. Your skin is the largest organ on your body, and it needs the same thoughtful care and treatment that you give to your insides!
