Aging Skin Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Repair Aged Skin?

Aging is a natural process that leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and a loss of skin elasticity.

Mature skin cannot be “repaired” (it's not broken!) but there are ways to improve the appearance and health of the skin.

Through sun protection, moisturization, and care, you can prevent further damage and improve your skin's texture and appearance.

If you’re determined to look younger - retinoids, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy have all been shown to have good results. But we prefer a more natural approach.

What Ingredients are Bad for Mature Skin?

Mature skin is more delicate and prone to dryness and sensitivity than younger skin, so it's important to be mindful of the ingredients in skincare products.

Some ingredients that can be harsh or potentially harmful to mature skin include:

  1. Alcohol: High concentrations of alcohol can be drying and irritating for mature skin, leading to a loss of moisture and a compromised barrier function.
  2. Fragrance: Fragrances can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions, especially in mature skin, which is more delicate.
  3. Sulfates: Sulfates are common ingredients in facial cleansers and can be harsh and moisture-stripping for mature skin.
  4. Essential oils: Some essential oils can be irritating for mature skin and may cause allergic reactions or make the skin more sensitive to sunlight.
  5. Retinoids: While retinoids can be beneficial for mature skin, they can also cause irritation and dryness, especially if used in high concentrations or without proper moisturization.

Tip: It's always a good idea to look for skincare products that are specifically formulated for mature skin.

Is Goat Milk Soap Good for Mature Skin?

Goat milk soap is gentle, moisturizing, and rich in nutrients, making it great for older skin.

The natural fat molecules in goat milk moisturizes the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The lactic acid in the milk also gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it smooth and soft.

Goat milk soap is also less likely to cause allergic reactions than other types of soap, which can be beneficial for mature skin, which is more delicate and prone to sensitivity. But don’t just take our word for it, try Goat Milk Stuff soaps for yourself!

How Do You Take Care Of Mature Skin?

As we age, our skin starts to become thinner and dryer, which can lead to cracking and dermatitis. This can increase the risk of infection. Because of this, we need to give our skin some extra love and care as we age.

Skin care tips for mature skin include avoiding hot, frequent baths and showers and only using soaps that are gentle and moisturizing for the skin.

Is Goat Milk Soap Anti-Aging?

We often get asked whether goat milk soap is anti-aging and helps with wrinkles. While goat milk soap itself isn’t anti-aging, it contains many natural ingredients and compounds, such as lactic acid, Vitamin A, and Selenium, that can help make the skin look youthful.

Lactic acid is a natural, gentle exfoliator. Using this regularly can help make wrinkles less obvious by removing excess dead skin cells. When there is a build-up of these, wrinkles become exaggerated, especially if you wear a lot of make-up or foundation which sits on top of the dead skin cells.

Vitamin A can help prevent and repair sun damage, which is caused by too much sun exposure. It comes in the form of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation such as freckles and dark spots, and fine lines. The good news is that vitamin A is shown to drastically improve fine lines, wrinkles, and many other signs of sun-damaged skin. Topical vitamin A (retinoids) induces many microscopic changes in the skin and stimulates the growth of collagen.

Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent hair loss, infection, immunity issues, and muscle weakness. Antioxidants also fight the free radicals which are caused by oxidation. Free radicals have been shown to possibly cause skin cancer, wrinkles, premature aging, and many other issues, including thyroid problems. Antioxidants like selenium can help fight these harmful effects of free radicals.

Should You Exfoliate Older Skin?

Exfoliation has always been deemed an important part of a good skincare routine. This holds true for older skin as well because exfoliation removes the build-up of dead skin cells, revealing newer ones underneath. Exfoliation also helps to soften wrinkles and other fine lines on the face.

Exfoliation will allow your skin to absorb other skincare products like moisturizers better. Products that contain natural exfoliants, like lactic acid, will help to exfoliate the skin and clean out your pores gently. Goat milk is rich in lactic acid.

Goat Milk Soap for Mature Skin Testimonials

"Love your soap I can even tell a difference in my wrinkles."
- Karen J. review on Lavender Goat Milk Soap

"Soft silky lotion. I like both red and orange labels. Orange label is a bit softer. Now that I have switched to GMS soap, I don't need as much lotion. I use large red label stick on body. And small orange label stick around eyes and on face. Face has been softer and smoother with less lines/wrinkles."
 - Sharon N. review on OMH Solid Goat Milk Lotion

"I am allergic to almost all medicines and other over the counter helps for skin care even including tooth paste! So am pleased to tell you that my skin really likes and enjoys this pure goat lotion that is fragrant free. I’m happy to report that the wrinkles on my face appear to be less severe since I’ve been using this lotion on a regular daily basis. I have been using the unscented goat milk soap and love the way it makes lots of suds! I tell everyone about your good products!"
 - Nancy S. review on Unscented Solid Goat Milk Lotion

"I don't know if I'm supposed to, but I started using this lotion on my face morning and evening. I dissolve it with just a touch of warm water. My skin is now soft and supple. Even the smallest of wrinkles seem to soften enough to be more complimentary than haggard looking. Other goat milk products don't compare to these and Lord knows I've tried plenty."
