Powdered Goat Milk: Handcrafted, handmade soap is great for the skin and adding milk only makes it better. Goat milk is particularly moisturizing and nourishing to the skin because of capric-caprylic triglyceride. Capric-caprylic triglyceride is an effective skin moisturizer that helps to contribute to skin softness by forming a barrier on the skin to help inhibit the loss of moisture. It is the only milk that contains naturally occurring capric-caprylic triglycerides. The protein strands of goat milk are shorter than other types of milk and are more readily absorbed by skin. Goat milk is also fantastic in handmade soap because it has a lower pH (between 4.0 and 6.4), thus reducing the overall pH of the final bar of soap.
Goat milk also has naturally occurring lactic acid that helps keep skin smooth by encouraging skin turnover (it acts similar to a gentle peel). It also contains many vitamins, specifically A, D and B6, as well as the anti-oxidant Selenium.
Our goatmilk is made by happy goats that are never fed anything genetically modified or containing animal bi-products and raised on farms that do not use any sprays, insecticides, or pesticides. Our Goat Milk is whole and pastuerized and has no BGH( growth hormones), antibiotics, or preservatives.
Goat Milk does produce a distinctive odor in soap and lotion. It can also turn a deep yellow color in Cold Process soap. We recommend using the powdered goat milk within 2 months of purchase.
To Dilute: Mix 1 oz of powdered goatsmilk with 8 oz of water. Mix well.Ingredients: Botanical Name: Goat MilkCommon Name: Goats Milk Powder
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Natalie! We recommend using the Powdered Goat Milk within two months after purchase. In products like soap where the goat milk will go through saponification the shelf life would be extend. Though, with bath tea I would recommend using the bath tea within two months of making it so the goat milk is still super fresh!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Molly! We recommend using the Powdered Goat Milk within 2 months of purchase. Keeping it in the fridge may help extend this expiration a bit, but since this product is fresh it can still expire quickly. I will email you personally to discuss this further!
