Our mothers have always been fond of gardening, and watering their own plants as a hobby, but if you put this hobby together with some skin-care friendly plants like aloe vera- it just makes their excitement 5x! In the past few years, our kitchens and organic gardens have seen an increase as they end up making such yummy food for us in the end. But that’s not it-not only do our kitchens have flavours, but also the best of skin-care products- like coconut, turmeric, rose water, and we’re just getting started here. But we often miss out on one of the most underdog items from our kitchen counters- yes! We’re talking about your bottle of goat milk! Are you just as surprised as we were when we heard that goat milk could be our skin’s best friend? Let’s find out!
You heard that right. Goat milk is possibly one of the best options for anyone looking for a natural skincare supplement. We’re not recommending dipping your cotton blobs in goat milk and then applying on your face, and messing up the entire floor in that case. But ever since it has been recognised as a skincare friendly element, with its wide range of benefits for our skin, it has been used as a base for producing a variety of products especially for skin and body care, including soaps, goat milk lotions, creams, moisturizers, and even goat milk based lip-balms! We are absolutely stoked at the innovation of producers to understand the increasing demand for goat milk. Here are a few reasons why everyone’s going gaga about goat milk these days :
- It helps in skin cleansing and nourishment
Okay, it's time for some hard facts here: it's been found that goat milk is a good source of lactic acid & alpha-hydroxy acids. Let me explain what a wonder that could be for our skin as lactic acid can engage in a deep cleanse of our skin while the alpha-hydroxy acids may contribute to the removal of our dead skin cells! Hold on, the scientific amazement does not end here, the multiple vitamins in goat milk like Vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C, D, E ( we're not making this up!) can help in making our skin naturally healthy and bright! And let’s be honest- who doesn't want THAT?
- Skin-Care at its best
The best feeling after shopping for a product is when the tags read “shampoo and conditioner”- because let’s be honest, who has that kind of time anymore to use 2 separate products on a working wednesday at 8 am? This is why goat milk-based skincare products are so helpful. Let me explain what we mean by that: they have both exfoliating and moisturising properties. This happens due to the presence of lactic acid and alpha-hydroxy acids which when combined with other ingredients like glycerine, make a pact to make sure our skin is hydrated and receives enough moisture to look fresh and soft all the time! Pssh, goat milk products may also help with premature ageing and wrinkles, spots, and lines. Honestly, where do we sign up?
- Acne and sensitive skin? Not a problem!
Acne in itself is a big bully for our faces. It just sits there with absolutely no purpose except troubling us- and worse, even when it goes away, it leaves a mark behind, classic bully behaviour. But history bears testimony to the fact that for every bully, there’s a madman with great perseverance. For our acne, that’s the goat-milk protein. It’s scientifically known to have antimicrobial properties, which means that using goat milk products may help in decreasing the formation of acne-producing germs and thus, may also support in helping us get rid of them! Especially for our friends out there with sensitive skin, who have to go through label after label finding the right products for them, CONGRATULATIONS! You can put your research to rest because goat milk has fat molecules, is completely natural in its origin, and does not cause inflammation of the skin!
- Going the extra layer for skincare!
Since we took charge of your skin, we decided to go all the way- goat milk has antimicrobial properties which work well both for acne and a bunch of other skin infections too. Why other skin-care products usually cause inflammation or itching is because they create an imbalance in the natural pH of our skin, but thanks to the presence of ‘caprylic acid’ in goat milk, it actually helps in decreasing the effect of chemical soaps and helps maintain the natural pH of our skin.
- Possible Protection against Chronic Illnesses
Experts have suggested that goat milk contains a good proportion of selenium, which is a great agent that helps in protecting our skin from harmful UV rays. To help you understand better, you can imagine it like wearing sunglasses for your skin- not just your eyes! Goat milk-based skincare products can thus protect our skin from the terrible UV rays, and eventually may help reduce the potential risks of skin cancer!
So, what’s the final verdict?
When looking for non-synthetic and skin-friendly skincare choices, we never expect that goat milk products would stand out so well. The entire line, from body washes to shampoos to face cleansers, is a one-stop-shop for anybody searching for a natural alternative to synthetic products! So, now when you get home from a long day at work, you know how to feel revitalized, from your washroom almirahs to your dairy counters in the refrigerator, goat milk’s the answer you’ve been looking for!
