Each goat milk soap in our Keratosis Pilaris product line has raw goat milk to help gently cleanse, moisturize, and offer relief. So how do the soaps differ?
Everyone's skin is different, so we can't promise that our Goat Milk Soap will offer you relief from your keratosis pilaris symptoms. Unless you are allergic to one of the ingredients, our soap should not aggravate your KP.
Some people have found that once they get their KP under control, they are able to switch to a scented Essential Oil Goat Milk Soap. Others find it’s best to continue to use one of the five recommended Goat Milk Soaps for KP. Others 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.
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 causing KP flare-ups. We also have a chemical-free Natural Deodorant that is a great solution for irritated armpits.
We recommend the following steps to start on your goat milk soap journey:
Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a non-harmful skin condition that causes small, hard bumps that appear on the body - typically on the upper arms, thighs, and buttocks. Sometimes it can cause redness or swelling too. It’s also typically accompanied by dry, rough skin and, sometimes, itchiness.
KP is caused by a buildup of keratin that blocks the openings of pores or hair follicles. Unfortunately, doctors are not sure what triggers the keratin buildup.
Keratosis Pilaris is currently another incurable skin condition; however, certain products can help improve it. Generally, topical exfoliants are recommended for removing dead skin cells (the source of the keratin buildup), while lotions are recommended to help keep the skin moisturized.
You need to be careful because often these products include chemicals, preservatives, and fragrances that can cause more skin irritation. Fortunately, there are natural treatments for Keratosis Pilaris, such as our goat milk soaps, that can assist with this skin condition.
Exfoliating and moisturizing are the best methods for getting rid of KP, and there are many natural products that can be used to do this. In fact, we’ve had many customers who have had great success in getting rid of their Keratosis Pilaris with the help of our Goat Milk Stuff products.
Goat milk is a gentle yet effective ingredient that is beneficial for Keratosis Pilaris, as well as many other skin conditions. Raw goat’s milk is full of alpha-hydroxy acids, which help remove dead skin cells and encourage new skin cell growth. The proteins and fatty acids in goat milk provide a great moisture barrier that encourages deep hydration for your skin.
Goat milk has anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce irritation and redness common in keratosis pilaris and other sensitive skin conditions. It also contains probiotics which help promote normal skin growth.
You can wash with goat milk soap as often as you need to stay clean. 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 our 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. But if you experience worsening of your symptoms, stop using immediately.
Dear PJ and Family, I feel we need to share our experience with your Purity and Laundry soaps. My daughter has suffered from severe keratosis pilaris for over 3 years and we have had many visit with little results from a dermatologist. After many hours of online research goats milk soap was mentioned for people who suffered from keratosis pilaris. As I searched for a quality goats milk soap I came across your website with good reviews. With continued use of these products for about 9 months now we have seen a good improvement of the severe keratosis pilaris on my daughters arms. She still had some patches and scarring of the skin, but her arms look the best I've seen in years. Thank you for these great products.
Love the purity bar soap. I have very sensitive skin and the detergents and preservatives used in other soaps irritate my skin. My son has keratosis pilaris and the purity soap keeps his skin free of bumps and cleared up teen acne. Last but not least, it soothes my husband's rosacea. It's the only soap my whole family uses. Love the fresh, clean scent and lather too!
Hi Goat Milk Stuff! I've been meaning to write you this for a long time, and apologize for just now getting around to it. I've been using your soaps since 2009, and love them!! I used to experiment with lots of different scents and never found one that I didn't like. In 2011 I gave birth to my first child, and following her birth I noticed lots of bumps on my arms. Not only were these bumps unsightly, I also had no clue what they were or how to get rid of them. Through research I discovered that they were Keratosis Pilaris, and from all the message boards I read, no one was really ever to "cure" them. I resigned to the notion that I would always have them, but the look of them bothered me so much! As my daughter approached a year old, I noticed that she too had these bumps and they were present on the backs of her arms, tops of her legs, and her bottom to lower back. I lotioned her religiously as this was the only thing I read to help. Then, I was on your website doing my biannual order and I happened to read a review where someone mentioned that the organic castile helped with their daughters KP. I decided it was worth a try, and after about 2-3 weeks of use, my bumps were disappearing!! At this point I've switched to the calendula, but they continue to get fewer and fewer in number, and now my arms are smooth again!! My daughter's problem areas are also noticeably better, and her skin is much smoother!!! I just really wanted you all to know this, so that maybe you could mention KP in the list of "may help with" skin conditions that you list in the descriptions of the organic castile and calendula. Thank you for your great products!!
Ever since I was a young girl I always struggled with keratosis pilaris (small red bumps in the backs of my arms and thighs). I tried many things from creams to special soaps but nothing has worked until I got a sample of goat milk stuff soap. After only 2 weeks of using the "luv spell" soap the bumps on my arms and leg are gone. Plus it smells amazing and makes my skin soft. I LOVE IT!
This is the best soap I have ever used. I've tried other all- natural goat milk soaps, but none feel as silky and smooth as these. It like washing with silk. The small white bumps (keratosis pilaris) on my arms have gone away since I've used these soaps. Thank you!
For keratosis pilaris on my boys (2.5 y/o twins) I have found the purity and the tea tree both work great in addition to a omega 3 supplement daily.
A HUGE thank you! I have been meaning to write for some time on how happy I am I found out about your soaps. My son has eczema and Keratosis Pilaris (tiny bumps on the legs, arms, and cheeks). We were told to use non irritant soap and even the mild soaps still dried his skin out. When I first ordered I told him he was getting new soap (he's 3) and now every time he gets a bath he grabs the soap and proudly says 'My new soap!' We are supposed to keep his baths short because of his skin. Now he can stay in longer and play because I know his skin is getting moisturized (naturally!) by the soap. As a mom this makes me so happy. My husband and I use it and I cannot believe the difference in my skin! My feet are soft again! Even my husband loves the soaps. He asks when we'll try a new scent even the 'un-manly' ones. :) Thank you to your whole family for what you do. If we lived closer I would hug you all. My God continue to bless your family. Thank you again for doing what your doing. You have a customer for life.
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 has added therapeutic benefits for those suffering from keratosis pilaris, eczema and other sensitive skin conditions such as psoriasis, dry skin, and acne.
We’ve been blessed to use what God has given us to help families get the relief they need from painful or embarrassing skin conditions like keratosis pilaris. 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.
