Are you or a loved one suffering with acne? If so, you know the frustration and embarrassment that acne can cause. The good news is that many people have been reporting relief from their pimples and acne symptoms while using Goat Milk Stuff soap. (Read Acne Testimonials.)

Most people use the Tea Tree soap for their acne, but each person's skin is unique, so you should try the soaps to see which goat milk soap YOUR skin likes best.

If you're looking for relief from your acne, we recommend these steps:

  1. Remove as many chemicals and detergents from your personal care products as possible. This includes soap, lotion, shampoo, make-up, and deodorant.
  2. Use the Tea Tree goat milk soap exclusively for at least a week.  
  3. After a week, add the Tea Tree lotion to see if it further improves your skin. (You don't want to do the lotion and soap at the same time because sometimes the lotion makes acne symptoms better and sometimes it doesn't.)
  4. At some point, start washing all your clothes, sheets and towels and especially your pillowcases in the laundry soap because it completely rinses out of your clothes and doesn't leave behind any chemicals to irritate your skin.
  5. Find a shampoo that works for you that does not include any chemicals.  We recommend starting with the Tea Tree shampoo bar.
  6. Experiment to see if one of the other goat milk soaps (Charcoal, Calendula, Organic Castile, Purity) works any better than the Tea Tree. Try each one for at least 1 week so you can give it a fair test. There are smaller goat milk soap 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.

The reason we suggest starting with the Tea Tree is because the majority of people who use our goat milk soap and leave feedback tell us that the Tea Tree offers them the most relief from their acne. But because each person's skin may react differently to different goat milk soaps, you should try the other goat milk soaps at some point as well.

For example, we have several customers reporting that the Charcoal goat milk soap actually works best for them. So we encourage you to experiment to discover which goat milk soap YOUR skin likes best.  These are the five goat milk soaps that we get the best feedback from for relief from acne:

  • Purity goat milk soap - an unscented soap made with raw goat milk that is very gentle for acne prone skin.
  • Tea Tree goat milk soap - the Purity soap with tea tree essential oil added. Tea Tree essential oil is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.
  • Activated Bamboo Charcoal goat milk soap - the Purity goat milk soap with added charcoal. If you've never used a charcoal soap before, be sure to test it on a small portion of skin first as a small number of people are sensitive to charcoal.
  • Organic Castile goat milk soap - made with only organic extra virgin olive oil and raw goat milk, this soap will not lather as well as the Purity (it is more lotion-like), but is the gentlest soap we make and the one we recommend for hyper-sensitive skin and for newborns.
  • Calendula goat milk soap - similar to the Castile soap, but with calendula flowers infused and castor oil added to increase the lather.

We have different soap sizes available (see the size comparison chart) so you can save money while you test different soaps on your skin. 

Everyone's skin is different, so we can't promise that our goat milk soap will offer you relief from your acne. But we can share with you hundreds and hundreds of testimonials from people who found relief with our goat milk soaps. And unless you are allergic to one of the ingredients, the soap should not aggravate acne symptoms.

We regularly pray that our soap will help whoever needs it and we hope it will help you (or your loved one) find relief from acne as well.

Acne FAQs

What causes acne to get worse?

Several factors can aggravate acne. These include:

  1. Hormones: Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause, can cause an increase in the production of oil in the skin, leading to more acne.
  2. Genetics: Acne can run in families, so if your parents or siblings had severe acne, you might also be more likely to develop it.
  3. Diet: Eating a diet high in sugar, dairy, and processed foods is known to contribute to acne.
  4. Cosmetics: Using cosmetics, moisturizers, and heavy or oily sunscreens can clog pores and lead to acne.
  5. Environmental factors: Exposure to pollutants, dust, and other environmental irritants can aggravate acne-prone skin.
  6. Stress: Stress can cause an increase in the production of certain hormones that can lead to more acne.
  7. Medications: Certain medications, such as corticosteroids, lithium, and androgens, can cause acne as a side effect.

Tip: This blog post explains how Goat Milk Soap can benefit acne, no matter why it was aggravated.

Should I moisturize at night if I have acne?

Using a moisturizer at night can benefit acne-prone skin, as the skin repairs itself during sleep. A moisturizer can help to hydrate and nourish the skin and can also help to improve the skin's barrier function, which can make it less susceptible to irritation and infection.

That being said, it is essential for people with acne to use the right type of moisturizer. If you have acne-prone skin, use a light, non-comedogenic moisturizer that will not clog your pores. These moisturizers are specifically formulated not to cause acne and will not aggravate existing breakouts. They are often labeled as "oil-free," "non-comedogenic," or "water-based."

Is acne a lifelong disease?

For some people, acne may be a lifelong condition that requires ongoing treatment and care. For others, it may be a temporary condition that resolves on its own or with treatment. Unfortunately, it is hard to determine which yours will be, as this will depend on your skin type and the above-mentioned factors.

While most people will experience acne at some point during their teenage years, some continue to experience acne into their twenties, thirties, and beyond. It can also occur for the first time in adulthood.

If you have been suffering from acne for a prolonged period without it improving with our Goat Milk Soap, it is best to consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. A professional can help determine the type and severity of acne, as well as recommend an appropriate treatment plan, which may include topical creams, oral medications, or a combination of both. In some cases, lifestyle changes such as diet modification and stress management may also be recommended to help control acne.
