Why choose a milk bath over a regular bath is a question we are regularly asked. The answer is simple, a milk bath offers no shortage of benefits, some of these have been summarized below:

How long should a Milk Bath last?

In truth, a goat milk bath can last for as long or as little time as you want, but we would recommend soaking your cares away for 20-30 minutes. This allows ample time for the goodness of the milk properties to penetrate your skin and work its magic, and also allows enough time for you to truly reach a relaxed state.

As with all things, you should listen to your body and adjust the duration if needed.

How often should you take a Milk Bath?

While indulging in a goat milk bath might feel tempting every day, moderation is key. Excessive soaking, even in gentle goat milk shreds, can disrupt your skin’s natural balance. We would recommend that you aim for 1-2 goat milk baths per week to truly reap the benefits without adversely stressing your skin.

"Soap shreds are by far, my favorite product! I put them in every bath and let the kids splash around and they come out of the tub smelling amazing! Black Raspberry is my favorite scent I've found!" - Kayleigh H.

Should you rinse with water after a Milk Bath?

The answer is that it depends. If you used one of our Goat Milk Bath products with warm water; then a gentle pat with a towel should suffice. However, if you added other essential oils, herb or bath salts that are not natural or made up of inorganic properties, then a light rinse with lukewarm water is recommended to remove any residue that may remain. Always prioritize your skin’s comfort and sensitivity, and listen to its needs.
