Eczema Skincare Frequently Asked Questions
What is the root cause of eczema?
Should You Moisturize Eczema?
Is Goat Milk Soap Good for Eczema?
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?
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.
Goat Milk Stuff products will never contain any of these substances.
How Often Should I Use Goat Milk Soap for Eczema Relief?
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.
