Goat Milk Soap for Dry Skin

If you or a loved one are struggling with dry skin, we have the perfect solution. Our goat milk soaps and lotions can help nourish your dry, damaged skin.

Dry skin, also known as xerosis or xeroderma, can leave your skin feeling itchy, rough, flaky, or even scaly. This can be caused by many factors, such as the environment around you or the everyday items you use in your home. Skincare products are one of the biggest culprits that contribute to dry skin.

However, natural skincare products, like our Goat Milk Stuff products, can help protect and moisturize your dry skin. All of our soaps are made using raw goat milk, which has moisturizing properties.

The Best Goat Milk Soap For Dry Skin

Each soap, like a person’s skin, is unique, so the best soap for each person is different. Below we have collected the top goat milk soaps as recommended by our customers dealing with dry skin.

We recommend starting with our Purity Goat Milk Soap, which has no added color or fragrance and is made with simple ingredients to help soothe your skin. This will give you a baseline for how your skin reacts to goat milk soap; after that, you can start to experiment with our other goat milk soaps and products. We also have solid goat milk lotions available that can help provide added relief for those with severely chapped or cracked skin.

Which Goat Milk Soap is Good for Dry Skin?

Each goat milk soap in our Dry Skin product line has raw goat milk to help moisturize and offer relief. However, we offer several variations, each of which has its own blend of unique ingredients.

  • Purity Goat Milk Soap is an unscented soap with simple ingredients and is our first recommendation for relief from dry skin.
  • Purity Oats Goat Milk Soap is our Purity Goat Milk Soap with rolled oats added for extra exfoliation.
  • Castile Goat Milk Soap is the gentlest soap we make and contains only organic extra virgin olive oil and raw goat milk. The creamy, lotion-like lather and minimal ingredients make it the goat milk soap we recommend for infants and hyper-sensitive skin.
  • Calendula Goat Milk Soap is our Castile soap with calendula-infused olive oil and castor oil added to increase lather. Castor oil is known for helping with inflammation and fighting off fungi, characteristics that calendula also possesses. Calendula is also antibacterial in nature.
  • Activated Bamboo Charcoal Goat Milk Soap is our Purity Goat Milk Soap with added activated bamboo charcoal. This natural ingredient is gentle on the skin and antibacterial, too.

6 Steps To Use Goat Milk Soap for Dry Skin Relief

We recommend the following steps to start on your goat milk soap journey:

  1. Make sure your soap, lotion, shampoo, make-up, and deodorant are as natural and chemical-free as possible. Chemicals can aggravate dry skin and are hidden in many skincare products.
  2. Use only the unscented Purity Goat Milk Soap for a week to see if that offers any relief. We have the bar soap for the shower or Purity Goat Milk Bath for enjoying a soak in the tub.
  3. After a week of exclusively using the Purity Goat Milk Soap, try adding the Unscented Solid Lotion to see if it improves your skin. Some people find it helps, and others don't, so we recommend the soap first and then the lotion. By not trying them both for the first time in the same week, you can see the impact each one has.
  4. Change your laundry habits and switch to our Laundry Soap with simple ingredients and no unnecessary chemicals. Clothes, sheets, and towels touch your skin on a regular basis. Chemicals in commercial laundry detergent remain on those items and can irritate your skin.
  5. If your scalp needs some help, consider trying our Unscented Goat Milk Soap Shampoo Bar without chemicals that could aggravate your dry skin.
  6. After you've tried the Purity Goat Milk Soap, you can experiment to see if one of our other goat milk soaps for dry skin (like the Purity Oats, Castile, Calendula, or Charcoal) works any better. Try each one for at least one week so you can give it a fair test. There are smaller sizes available (see the size comparison chart), so you can save money while you are figuring out which goat milk soap is best for your skin.



Dry Skin Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Main Cause Of Dry Skin?

There is no single cause for dry skin. Rather, there are many factors that can contribute to and aggravate this skin condition, such as taking long, hot baths or showers, using harsh skincare products or cleaning products, sun damage, and cold or dry weather conditions.

Is Goat Milk Soap Good For Dry Skin?

While goat milk has not been scientifically proven to help dry skin, many people who have used our Goat Milk Stuff products have found it to provide relief for their dry skin as well as other issues like eczema and psoriasis. This is due to the fatty acids, vitamins, and other nutrients in goat milk which naturally help nourish, moisturize and exfoliate the skin.

How Can I Treat Dry Skin At Home?

When treating your dry skin, you want to do everything possible to keep the skin hydrated. Some easy treatment tips you can try at home include using a humidifier, taking short baths or showers, avoiding using bath sponges or scrubbing brushes, only using natural, moisturizing soaps, and applying moisturizing lotions after bathing.

How Long Does Dry Skin Take To Heal?

The length of time it takes for your skin to heal will depend on how severe your dry skin already is and how well you begin to take care of it. If you begin to use soaps and moisturizers that hydrate your skin, the itchiness or flakiness should start improving within a week or two.
