Which Goat Milk Soap is Good for Eczema?

Each goat milk soap in our Eczema 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 eczema relief.
  • Tea Tree Goat Milk Soap is our Purity Goat Milk Soap with Tea Tree essential oil added. Tea Tree has antibacterial and antiviral properties, making it helpful for eczema.
  • Organic 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 Organic 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 possess. Calendula is also antibacterial in nature, helping to soothe eczema.
  • 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 Eczema 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 eczema and are hidden in many skincare products.
  2. Only use 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 Goat Milk Soap Shampoo Bar without chemicals that could aggravate your eczema.
  6. After you’ve tried the Purity goat milk soap, you can experiment to see if one of our other Goat Milk Soaps for eczema (like the Calendula, Organic Castile, Tea Tree, 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.

If our Goat Milk Soaps and solid goat milk lotions alone don't offer enough relief, you may want to also try our Goat Milk Laundry Soap to get all the chemical detergents out of your sheets, clothes, and towels. These chemicals may further be irritating your skin and be causing eczema flare-ups. We also have a chemical-free Natural Deodorant that is a great solution for irritated armpits.

Eczema Skincare Frequently Asked Questions

What is the root cause of eczema?

The root cause of this skin condition remains unknown; however, scientists have found that an overactive immune system, genetics, stress, and environmental triggers contribute to eczema flare-ups. The overactive immune system results in your skin becoming more sensitive to triggers and irritants, resulting in red, dry, itchy, and bumpy skin.

Should You Moisturize Eczema?

Moisturizing is a key step in managing eczema because it will help protect the outer layer of the skin, which is the layer of skin most damaged in eczema patients. Moisturizing can also help keep the skin from becoming dry and itchy.

Is Goat Milk Soap Good for Eczema?

Goat milk soap has not been proven (by science) to treat eczema; however, thousands of people have reported relief from their eczema symptoms when using goat milk soap.

Goat milk is made up of compounds that are gentle on sensitive skin. Raw goat’s milk is full of alpha-hydroxy acids, which help remove dead skin cells and encourage new skin cell growth. Lactic acid also contains probiotics, which have been used as an effective topical treatment for infants with eczema.

The proteins and fatty acids in goat milk can provide a great moisture barrier that encourages deep hydration for your skin. In addition, goat milk can have anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce irritation and redness common in eczema and other sensitive skin conditions.

What Should You Not Put on Eczema?

When caring for your eczema, there are various products and substances you should avoid to prevent the condition from flaring up. Products containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and retinol tend to leave the skin feeling dry and irritated.

Fragrant-infused soaps and products can also trigger your eczema. Some of the preservatives found in hygiene and cosmetic products, like methylparaben or butylparaben, may also irritate the skin, leading to inflammation.

How Often Should I Use Goat Milk Soap for Eczema Relief?

Use Purity Goat Milk Soap, or whichever Goat Milk Soap proves best for your skin, in place of the soap you’ve been using during your regular bathing or showering routine.

Continued use for at least one week is recommended to truly see how the soap affects your skin. The ingredients we’ve used to formulate our Goat Milk Soap should cleanse your skin without leaving it dry and irritated. If you experience worsening of your symptoms, stop using immediately.

Some people have found that once they get their eczema under control, they are able to switch to an Essential Oil Goat Milk Soap. Others find it’s best to continue to use one of the five recommended Goat Milk Soaps for eczema. Some people also rotate the soaps periodically to avoid building a sensitivity over time. You need to test them on your skin to see what works best for you.

Our journey with Goat Milk Stuff began with an intent to give our family chemical-free, natural alternatives to traditional soaps. We happily discovered that goat milk may have added therapeutic benefits for those suffering from eczema and other sensitive skin conditions such as psoriasis, dry skin and acne.

In fact, you can read hundreds and hundreds of testimonials from people who found relief from eczema with our Goat Milk Soaps.

We’ve been blessed to use what God has given us to help families get the relief they need from painful skin conditions, like eczema. Our family regularly prays that our Goat Milk Stuff will not only help whoever needs it, but that it helps you and your loved ones find the relief you’ve been searching for.
