The resurgence of milk soap in the market place can be attributed to recent research showing the skin benefits from contact with lactic acid. Lactic acid helps smooth skin through exfoliation, and milk also contains vitamins A and D. These vitamins give skin smoothness and suppleness. Much milk-based soap is created from goat’s milk. Goat milk soap has the same ph as human skin.

Goats’ milk is high in fat and creamy. People who have trouble digesting cow’s milk often choose to ingest goats’ milk as an alternative. The protein profile of goats’ milk is more similar to human milk than cows’ milk. Another benefit to using goats’ milk products is that goats are more easily farmed than cows; they forage on all kinds of feed, are resistant to disease and can provide meat, milk and wool.
