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
Overall, I have had great success with this Goat's Milk! I use this as I'm afraid if I found someone local, it would spoil before I could get it all used! I have gone through 3 bags in the last 4 months and have had good success with 2 of the 3. One bag seemed... more concentrated maybe? I mixed the same exact ratios as the other two bags, however for some reason this bag scorched like CRAZY!! Luckily, I was able to salvage the rest of the bag by reducing the amount of goat's milk to .75oz per 8oz water. The other two bags have been great though! No scorching, no yellowing, and no odor!
Can you vacuum seal or use an oxygen absorber to preserve your unused goats milk?
Also, I would like to add this goats milk powder to cleansing grains and extend the shelf life of the batch beyond 2 months. Is there something I can add to extend the shelf life; essential oils, rosehip seed powder (because of vitamin c), etc?
I really like this product because of its ease of use and the fact that, unlike store bought goats milk, it has no preservatives....BUT....and this is a biggie....I REALLY wish it was available for purchase in smaller than 1 pound amounts. I am a very small scale soaper & do not use goats milk in all my varieties of soap. I usually make some goats milk ice cubes and freeze them to extend the life of the product but it would be nice to be able to purchase smaller amounts to avoid waste. PLEASE consider selling this in smaller quantities for us little guys out there! Thank you!!!
I want to purchase this to make the Lavender & Chamomile Goat Milk Bath Tea but have concerns because of the recommendation to use it within 2 months. Once I make the recipe, should the bath tea be used within the recommended 2 months?
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!
I have not yet purchased this because I don't think I will use all of it within the recommended 2 months. Can it be refrigerated to extend the quality?
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!
