Our Goat Milk

#1 Ingredient

Our dairy goats are fed a gluten free, organic diet with no corn, soy or wheat grain offerings. We use certified organic peas, alfalfa pellets, millet, gluten free oats, sunflower seeds and give them organic vegetable scraps from our own kitchen. The feed is used when on the milking stand while being milked and to help boost their nutritional intake.

Goat’s milk is known for it’s amazing qualities. The information shared here is from our own research. (see disclaimer below)

Here’s a short list of a few known benefits:

    • Nourishing to skin because it is high in vitamins A B6, B12, C, D and E
    • Has high levels of enzymes and proteins
    • It has a reputation of having natural antimicrobial properties which makes it good for acne
    • The protein strands are shorter and more readily absorbed by the skin that those in other milks
    • Soap and lotion made with goats milk boasts of being good for psoriasis and eczema because of caprylic acid and when combined with coconut its extra good for psoriasis
    • Caprylic acid and capric triglycerides add to silkiness of goat milk soap/lotion and bumps up antioxidants and makes a fantastic emollient and moisturizing agent
    • Lactic acid and alpha hydroxy acid help improve appearance of skin by encouraging cell turnover and smoother skin
    • Last but not least, it is believed that medium chain fatty acids help goat’s milk penetrate first (dead) layer of skin to encourage effective movement and deposit fat soluble Vit A, E & K, two antioxidants which can neutralize free radicals.
