Dry Skin

Dry skin caused by eczema, psoriasis, or even just yearly weather changes can be extremely uncomfortable. Our goat milk soaps and other goat milk skincare products can provide much needed moisture and relief. All of the goat milk soaps have the same amount of goat milk, so they provide the same amount of moisturizing and benefits.

"I really like the Organic Castile olive oil soap on my very dry skin in the Winter. I use it year around but in the winter it keeps my skin from getting really dry!" - Katherine B.

Which Goat Milk Soap is Best for Dry Skin?

We usually recommend that you start with the Purity Goat Milk Soap if you are suffering from severe dry skin. This will give you a base line for how your skin reacts to goat milk soap.

"The Purity goat milk soap is awesome, my skin is very sensitive and this soap doesn’t bother it, but it makes my skin very soft and I don’t even need to put lotion on after I bathe! What a great product!!"Kim L.

After that (or if you have mildly dry skin), try the different scented soaps that appeal to you to see how your skin reacts. Most people find that their skin is able to tolerate the scented soaps without drying out (see testimonials below).

Oatmeal Milk & Honey Goat Milk Soap
"I love the Oatmeal Milk & Honey soap! My skin is very dry & I decided to see if the goat milk soap would help. It has helped tremendously! The skin on my fingertips were cracked & sore. Since washing my hands with the Oatmeal Milk & Honey soap, it has all cleared up! I’ve been showering with it & my skin feels soft with no dryness at all! I’ll definitely be getting more & trying some of your other products! Thank you so much for a wonderful product!" - Linda C.

Other Goat Milk Skincare for Dry Skin

We also have solid goat milk lotions available if you need extra help for cracking or severely chapped skin. Again, start with the Unscented Lotion if you're trying them for the first time and your skin is severely dry.

"I am using the lotion on my hands at night and am very happy with it; feels light, not greasy and my hands feel well moisturized. I love that I can read without worry of greasing up my books. It is small enough to carry in my small purse."Joan S.

At some point you may also want to use the Laundry Soap on anything that touches your skin - don't forget sheets and towels and such. Commercial detergents have chemicals added that intentionally bind to your clothing and can cause lots of irritation and problems.

"Goat Milk Stuff Laundry Soap is wonderful! I suffer from skin allergies and eczema, so I was searching for a replacement laundry soap (the store bought stuff just made my skin problems worse). GMS Laundry Soap is just what I was looking for!! My skin is healing and I love the way it makes my laundry smell! So clean and fresh!! Thanks GMS!" - Leann H.

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 dry skin and other sensitive skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. We’ve been blessed to use what God has given us to help families get the relief they need from painful skin conditions, like dry skin. 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.

Organic Castile Goat Milk Soap

"I have dry skin that often leaves me itchy. The Organic Castile soap is the best I have found to calm down the itch" - Neil

"My boyfriend's boss used your soap and then bought a bar for my boyfriend because he has psoriasis and thought he would benefit from the soap. Well, I have horrible eczema on my hands and very dry skin in the winter, so I decided to use the soap as well. After only using it twice, my hands look almost completely clear and no longer burn and itch all day long!!!! It's amazing, I put lotion on my hands every single night and have never had results anywhere close to this. Thank you so much!!!!"

Washing hands with Purity Goat Milk Soap

"I realized yesterday that I have now been getting soap from your family business for a year. Last March, I ordered just one bar of the Purity soap to see if it would really make much difference on my younger son with eczema. Within two weeks of using the soap, his eczema was gone and I had stopped using all the prescribed medications. I remember telling my husband, “Well, we’re coming into spring, so maybe it would have gone away anyway. We’ll see what happens when winter comes again.” It occurred to me yesterday that we are through the worst part of winter, and his eczema never came back. Over the year, I have bought lots and LOTS of soap from you! We are now all using it. My husband usually has very dry skin every winter, but not this year. I have hands that crack and bleed in the cold, but not this year. My three children are all doing better using the GMS soap. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your testimony and the good that the soap has done in our family. Thank you." - Debbie

"I can not give this soap enough praise. My husband has very dry skin. Tried it once and now a very firm believer. Loves the smell. Great job."
- Deloris

"A friend told me about your soap and I thought I would try it out. I'm not usually big on bar soap but after the first time using your goat milk soap I was amazed at how good my skin felt. I liked it so much I bought some for my son as well and he loved it too. I use to have very dry skin but not anymore. We will use nothing but goat milk soap from now on. Thank you."
- Beverly

"I still love your product!!! I have had dry skin my entire life! I guess I had tried every soap and lotion out there!! My husband bought me lotions that were in excess of $40.00 per ounce!! Outrageous! Nothing worked until he heard your family on the Today Show 2 or 3 years ago. He drives a truck and has Sirius Radio, Your show was playing and he ordered me a bar of soap. From there it has just been wonderful for my skin!! I love the lotions, lip balms and everything I have tried so far!!! THANK YOU JONAS FAMILY!! And my skin thanks you too!!! He uses it too! We do not buy soap at the store anymore! I am disabled & take a lot of meds that dry my skin too!! But GMS can take care of it!!"

Ocean Goat Milk Soap

"I heard about Goat Milk Stuff on Mashable and decided to try out a bar. I have dry skin and I use normal soaps and body washes, but I always have to apply a lotion or my skin gets itchy. I read other customer testimonials and many people had said that this soap worked really well for dry skin. I received the order of Ocean soap and Tea Tree Luffa soap ahead of schedule. And right off the bat, I was amazed by the smell. They really smell incredible. I just showered and used this soap for the first time, and its been an hour and my skin doesn't feel dry yet... Let me just say, this is unheard of for me, I didn't apply any lotion or anything and my skin feels amazing, I even used it on my face and it feels fantastic. I'm definitely going to order more, some for my mom too. I highly recommend these soaps, and want to thank you for putting out a great product." - Akash

"I must say I'm amazed with the 'super fast' delivery of my soap as well as the excellence of the customer service. As a first time customer, I will tell you that the product is superior and I'm hard to!  My dry skin was SO silky and soft after my bath...made me want to jump back into the tub. THANK YOU!!"
- Laura

"I saw your product on Huckabee, I decided to try it. I have had super, severe (white scaly, cracking & bleeding) dry skin on my hands all my life. I have tried all kinds of soaps and lotions and have not found anything that has helped my hands until I tried your soap. It is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My hands have not looked & felt this good ever. I liked it so much for my hands I decided to shower with it & love it. Thank you so much!!"
- Candace 

Lemongrass Goat Milk Soap

"I just have to say how amazed I am with your products and your service. I just placed my third order yesterday and received it TODAY! You are so quick to get orders processed and shipped - it's amazing! And your soaps are fantastic! I love the scents, especially the Lemongrass (my favorite), they've helped with my dry skin, my breakouts (better than anything my dermatologist ever prescribed) and I'll never go back to store-bought body washes. You guys ROCK! I love, love, love Goat Milk Stuff! Thank you for being such an amazing family." - Whitney

"Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!! I have been trying for years to find the RIGHT cream to get rid of my dry skin and the deep cracks on my hands. I used your Goats Milk Stuff (soap and lotion) and my skin and hands healed in TWO DAYS. WOW!! I got rid of ALL of my old stuff and you now have a permanent customer.  God Bless You and All of your family."

Nautical Goat Milk Soap

"We love the soaps!! It has helped my cuticle skin & fingertip splits. Our grandson has had eczema issues since birth - gave him a Nautical bar to use at home and it is really making a difference. My husband has dry skin and & sun damage issues and the soaps are really making a difference for him as well. Thank you so much!!" - Jeanne

"I ordered the bar soap and received it quickly, so your service is very good. I just wanted to say that your bar soap is a miracle product. I do suffer from dry skin, and I live in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, so the air is very dry most of the year. I've been using Dove bar soap with a liquid body wash in the shower for years. It was the best I could achieve. Now, using your bar soap along with a cheap body wash, my skin feels clean and smooth and NO dryness!!!!! I will be a regular customer from now on. I also can't believe how well your bar soap cleans my skin. I can't say enough good about your product and your service. And your stuff is family made in the U.S.A. What a pleasure! Thank you so much for a great product. All the best to you and your whole family."

Dry Skin Frequently Asked Questions

What does dry skin look like?

Dry skin can look rough, flaky, or/and dull. It may also be itchy and red in certain areas, and will likely feel tight after showering or bathing.

What are the causes of dry skin?

Dry skin can be caused by many different factors. The most common causes of dry skin include:

  1. Dry, cold weather: Low humidity levels can remove moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and flaky.
  2. Hot showers and baths: Unfortunately, taking long, hot showers and baths can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness.
  3. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, can cause dry, itchy skin.
  4. Soaps and detergents: Many soaps and detergents can be harsh on the skin and strip it of its natural oils, which is why we recommend trying our goat's milk laundry soap.
  5. Aging: As we age, our skin becomes less efficient at holding in moisture.
  6. Medications: Some medications can cause dry skin as a side effect.
  7. Nutritional deficiencies: A lack of certain nutrients in your diet can also lead to dry skin.
  8. Genetics: Some people may be predisposed to dry skin due to their genes.

Is goat milk soap good for dry skin?

Goat milk soap is great for dry skin for a few reasons. It contains lactic acid, which helps to gently exfoliate the skin.

The lactic acid in goat milk can also help to moisturize the skin and promote a healthy skin barrier. Additionally, goat milk is rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A, vitamin D, and calcium, which can help to nourish and soothe dry skin.
