Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition that affects 35 million Americans—and many more people worldwide. Using Goat Milk Soap for eczema relief has become a popular choice among those with eczema. It is especially popular among parents who are trying to find all-natural ways to reduce eczema on their baby’s delicate skin. Including Goat Milk Soap in your regular washing routine can help relieve the symptoms of eczema, reduce flare-ups, and help your skin look and feel healthier.
Supporting Your Skin’s Health
Your skin is the largest organ on your body! Your skin performs a lot of important functions such as preventing dehydration by regulating body temperature and electrolyte levels. It synthesizes Vitamin D. And it functions as a protective barrier against harmful bacteria.
Your skin needs to be at its optimal health to perform at its very best. The best way to support your skin’s health is to protect its natural microbiome. Your skin’s microbiome is the collection of essential bacteria and microorganisms that live on its surface. When your skin’s microbiome is out of balance, it can alter your body’s immune response and lead to inflammatory skin conditions.
The best way to support your skin’s microbiome is to maintain its natural PH levels. Keeping your skin’s natural PH balance will encourage a healthy microbiome, which will in turn support your skin’s overall health. Goat Milk has a PH balance very similar to the PH balance of our skin. And Goat Milk Soap does not contain harsh surfactants or chemicals that strip your skin of its naturally-occurring and beneficial microorganisms. So, every time you wash with Goat Milk Soap, you are supporting a healthy microbiome on your skin!
Goat Milk Soap Moisturizes
Many commercial soaps tout the use of shea butter in their recipes. Shea butter is an excellent moisturizer and we use it in our soaps, too! But when it comes to eczema, you need more than just shea butter to deliver a healing dose of moisture to quench thirsty skin.
Goat Milk is loaded with proteins, fatty acids, and lipids that deliver outstanding nourishment and moisture to your skin. It also has natural glycerin, which leaves behind a thin barrier to help lock that moisture in without leaving your skin feeling greasy and without disturbing the skin’s natural microbiome. This all-natural and long-lasting moisturizing is one of the best reasons to use Goat Milk Soap if you have eczema.
Our Goat Milk Soap recipe contains five different oils, along with shea butter, and fresh Goat Milk from our herd of Nigerian Dwarf Goats. So, every wash with our Goat Milk Soap delivers maximum moisture to your skin. Combining the five oils, shea butter, and Goat Milk produces an eczema relieving all-star that helps fight dryness and prevents skin cracking and splitting.
Treating Eczema With Goat Milk Soap
Goat Milk also has naturally-occurring anti-inflammatories that help reduce redness and irritation.
It contains Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA) that slough away dead skin cells. This is especially beneficial if you have eczema. AHAs help gently remove the dry, flaky skin cells eczema produces to reveal fresher, healthier-looking skin.
Goat Milk Soap is naturally hypo-allergenic. Allergens are a significant trigger for eczema flare-ups, and commercial soaps can contain a high level of allergens.
Goat Milk Soap is low-irritant. Because our Goat Milk Soap contains no harsh chemicals, no added colors, and no artificial fragrances it is naturally low-irritant. In fact, it is gentle enough to treat eczema on your baby’s delicate skin and is safe for all ages.
Which Goat Milk Soap is Best for Eczema?
If you are making your first purchase of Goat Milk Soap for eczema relief, you might want to start with Goat Milk Soap Unscented. Goat Milk Soap Unscented is specially formulated for the most sensitive skin types. We have Goat Milk Soap Unscented in bars for all over body washing. We also have Liquid Goat Milk Hand Soap Unscented. And if you want to really quench that skin in between washes, try our Goat Milk Lotion Unscented.
Once you start to notice your eczema improving, you can decide to stay with the Goat Milk Soap Unscented or give our naturally-fragranced soaps a try. If you do try a fragranced soap (we know, they are deliciously tempting!), we recommend using one new fragranced soap at a time along with your unscented soap over the first week or two. This will help you to be sure that you don’t have a particular sensitivity to any one ingredient.
