My adventure into making goat milk soap began as a hobby to use the abundance of milk from our Toggenburg dairy does.  Our girls produce more milk than we can use to feed babies, make cheese, yogurt and ice cream.  Our does are milked twice daily and most of the milk is now used for my soapmaking.

The process of making true soap is a chemical reaction between various oils and sodium hydroxide (lye).  The chemical reaction, called saponification, changes the raw ingredients into soap and no lye remains in the final product.  I use goat milk in all of my soaps for the benefits it adds.  Goat milk is rich in vitamins A, D, B1, B6, B12, C and E and is high in medium chain fatty acids such as capric, caprylic and caproic acids.  Goat milk has alpha-hydroxy acids which attach to dead skin cells and help them fall off naturally which allows the nutrients in the bars to easily absorb into the skin.
