Goat milk is packed with naturally-occurring ingredients that can improve the appearance and health of your skin without the need for chemicals or synthetic additives. Goat Milk Soap is also incredibly gentle, making it an ideal soap choice for those with sensitive skin!
Natural Benefits of Goat Milk Soap
All of the Goat Milk Soaps made at Whitetail Lane Farm are handcrafted starting with the milk from our herd of Nigerian Dwarf Goats. Goat milk naturally provides the perfect ingredients for smooth, moisturized, and healthy skin:
- Nutrients - Goat milk contains vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, & E; the minerals Zinc and Selenium; as well as proteins and fatty-acids These power-packed yet gentle nutrients nourish the skin, protect skin cells, and repair damaged or irritated skin.
- Alpha-Hydroxy Acids - Goat milk has several AHAs that aid in removing dead skin cells. The lactic acids dissolve the bond between cells of dead skin to easily and gently remove them while you wash.
- Moisturizer - The glycerin that naturally occurs in Goat Milk Soap penetrates your skin to leave behind a thin layer of moisturizer after use. The various fatty acids in goat milk are also moisturizing and are particularly beneficial for those with extra dry or sensitive skin.

Handcrafted Natural Goat Milk Soap
Our Goat Milk Soaps are handcrafted, from scratch, using only natural ingredients. You won't find any ingredients that you can’t pronounce, harsh chemicals, or synthetic additives in our soaps. We use the traditional cold press method and cure our soaps for at least 5 weeks before cutting each bar by hand. Only natural ingredients known for their reputed benefits are used to create our unique blends. The scents in our soap bars are gentle and not at all overwhelming like artificially-scented soaps. Our unscented soaps are a wonderful option if you are sensitive to fragrances.

Is your goat milk soap really handmade?
Yes, our soap is really handmade by me! Our goat milk soap recipe starts from scratch, using 100% goat milk from our own herd of Nigerian dwarf goats. We don’t use any base recipes. Our all natural goats milk soaps are formulated with a wide variety of natural ingredients reputed for their benefits and are all made using the traditional cold process method.
We start out by getting the milk from the farm’s goats, and then freeze the milk in ice cube trays. Once the lye is dissolved we mix that in with our oils, add the fragrance and colorant and then pour in our molds. The soap logs are un-molded the day after they are made, cut and then placed on our curing rack from 6 weeks. Then they are ready for use.
