    5 Reasons to Avoid Antibacterial Soaps

    I have long believed that anti-bacterial soaps are not healthy and that people should avoid using them.  I was greatly encouraged to hear that the FDA is finally addressing the issue of anti-bacterial soap dangers. If you're not convinced that anti-bacterial soaps should be avoided, here are five reasons why you should remove all anti-bacterial products from your home.

    What Do I Use on My Face?

    People ask me quite often which soap and lotion I use on my face. I don't have very sensitive skin, so I am able to use all the different soap scents on my face.  Years ago, before I started making (and using) our goat milk soap, after I washed my face, my skin would feel "tight".  I didn't even really realize it at the time.  But once I started washing my face with our goat milk soap, I noticed the difference and that my skin doesn't tighten, but stays feeling soft.

    Wash Your Hands with Soap

    We're big believers in using soap to wash your hands - and not just because we make soap! With a farm family of ten, there are lots of opportunities to pass germs back and forth. Regularly washing hands with soap is the easiest way to keep us all healthy and prevent the passing of germs.  And with our busy schedule, we don't have time to get sick - and neither do you!

    Why Organic Soybean Oil is Safe to Use in Goat Milk Soap

    People have heard me say that I don't feed my family soy products and I don't feed my dairy goats soybeans.  So I am occasionally asked, "Why then do you use organic soybean oil in your soaps that your children use on their skin?"  The organic soybean oil we use goes through the saponification process and I believe that makes it safe for skin care.

    How To Use Goat Milk Shaving Soap

    A dry shave typically uses an electric razor (hence the lack of water), and a wet shave uses any number of razor blades with a lubricating agent and water.  Either way, you get your whiskers cut, and if you try both, you’ll find a way you like.  You do want to give each method a fair shake though, so make sure you’re doing it right.

    How To Help Dry Knuckles

    If you've been with Goat Milk Stuff long, you've probably heard me say that when I first started making our goat milk soap, I initially made it for the children, because I did not want a bunch of chemicals on their skin.  But when I put the soap in the shower, Jim's fingers stopped cracking and splitting.

    6 Reasons to Avoid Petroleum Jelly on Your Skin

    People ask why I was upset when I discovered that that there were petroleum based chemicals in the baby wash I used years ago.  After all, most people have been told that petroleum jelly is good for your skin. Personally, I disagree.  I have no desire to put anything made from crude oil (no matter how refined) on my children's skin or on my skin.

    Goats to Soap

    Ever wonder how we go from baby goats to goat milk soap? There are a lot of steps, but it all begins with taking care of our goats and making sure they are healthy so they can give us lots of farm fresh milk.  We then turn that milk into soap that benefits people's skin.

    Detergents and Soaps

    Because water is not very good at removing dirt and grease by itself, most people add soap or detergent to help clean their clothes, dishes, or their skin. Detergents are synthetic formulations that were created to mimic how soap cleans.  But they have lots of added chemicals which we don't use at Goat Milk Stuff.

    Is Titanium Dioxide Safe in Soap?

    Recently, we’ve been asked why we use titanium dioxide in our black raspberryclean cotton, and ocean goat milk soaps.  We add a tiny amount because those three soaps tend to take on a grey hue.  The titanium dioxide lightens the soap and makes them a lot prettier.  We feel that adding small amounts of titanium dioxide to soap is not a safety issue as studies support.
