No! In general, goat milk soap does not go bad, but instead gets more gentle as it ages and does not expire. This is accomplished without the use of preservatives, as the pH level of the soap prevents the growth of any nasty mold or bacteria. The saponification (soapmaking) reaction allows the goat milk to retain its beneficial properties, without any of the components that may spoil or grow bacteria. One thing to keep in mind is that the soap scent may start to fade around 9-12 months, but the soap itself gets better as it ages and doesn’t go bad.
No! Liquid goat milk soap does not contain any synthetic ingredients in the base formulation. In fact, it only uses three simple ingredients to create an effective and nourishing soap product. By combining raw goat milk and a blend of saponified olive and castor oil, the soap is rich, and stays natural. Our unscented liquid soap only uses these natural ingredients.
Certain scents (Black Raspberry, Honeysuckle, and Oatmeal Milk & Honey) use paraben-free and phthalate-free fragrance oils, which include synthetic ingredients designed to replicate certain scents that can’t be achieved directly from nature. If you’re mindful of synthetic ingredients, try our unscented option or a liquid soap scented with natural essential oils such as Almond, Citrus Tea, Lemongrass, Lavender, or Rosemary Mint.
Yes! While we recommend using our more gentle bar soap for baby’s baths, Liquid Goat Milk Soap is safe for washing baby’s hands. We recommend starting with the unscented option to reduce any risk of irritation. After six months of age, you can branch into scented options, though some babies may need to stick to the unscented soap. Before trying any soap on your baby’s skin, you should test the soap on a small area and see how their skin reacts and if there are any sensitivities.
Yes! Liquid Goat Milk Soap can foam and is meant to be used in a foamer bottle, which makes this a great hand soap option. Our Liquid Goat Milk Soap is sold in a 4oz foamer bottle, and is designed to be used with this type of dispenser. Since we do not add any chemicals to thicken the soap, it may splatter if put in another container such as a pump bottle. When used in the foamer bottle, the soap will pump out in a luscious, full bodied foam. Unlike other store-bought foaming soaps, our liquid goat milk soap is non-drying due to the amazing benefits of goat milk.
The 16oz refill bottle of liquid soap can be used to refill the 4oz foamer bottles for a recyclable option. Our soap requires no dilution, and can be poured into the foamer bottle, ready for use!
Both our liquid soap and bar soap contain the same nourishing goat milk, which leads to the same skin benefits our goat milk products are known for. The main difference between the solid bar soap and the liquid soap is the form it comes in, the process to make the soap, and the ingredients used to make the soap. After being made, bar soap is cured for 6 weeks. During this time period it finishes saponifying and dries out so that it becomes more gentle and lasts longer. In contrast, the liquid soap paste is heated or cooked for at least 3 days after it is made. The liquid soap completely saponifies during these 3 days so that it is more gentle.
Regardless of the differences in how it is made, the goat milk in the liquid soap still contains the same skin boosting properties like antioxidants and minerals. But If you’re struggling with skin conditions such as eczema or acne, start with the bar soap first before switching to the liquid soap. Because it isn’t heated, the bar soap can be just a tiny bit gentler for problem skin.
