Which Goat Milk Soap is Best for Eczema?

We have five goat milk soaps that commonly get great feedback from our customers who are looking for eczema relief.

  • Purity Goat Milk Soap - an unscented soap made with raw goat milk that is very gentle for eczema-prone skin.
  • Tea Tree Goat Milk Soap - our Purity Goat Milk Soap blended with tea tree essential oil. Tea Tree essential oil is a well-known and effective antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal.
  • Organic Castile Goat Milk Soap - made with only organic extra virgin olive oil and raw goat milk, this soap is more lotion-like and will not lather as well as Purity. Our Organic Castile Goat Milk Soap is the gentlest soap we make and the one we recommend for hyper-sensitive skin and for newborns.
  • Calendula Goat Milk Soap - we’ve added castor oil to our Organic Castile soap to increase the lather and infused it with calendula flowers.
  • Activated Bamboo Charcoal Goat Milk Soap - our Purity Goat Milk Soap with added charcoal. A small number of people are sensitive to charcoal. If you've never used a charcoal soap before, be sure to test it on a small portion of your skin first.

Over the years, we’ve noticed that a large amount of our customers with eczema prefer our Purity Goat Milk Soap. We recommend starting with Purity because every bar is formulated with simple ingredients and contains no added fragrance or colors. We've found that our bars of Purity Goat Milk Soap seem to last the longest, so they are the best value. This makes it a great soap to start with on your journey to eczema relief. 

Purity Goat Milk Soap
"The Purity soap is WONDERFUL and has helped to tame my husband’s eczema! So happy with this product!" - Susan O.

Each person's skin may react differently to different ingredients, so it makes sense to try our other goat milk soaps, as well. We know of at least 3 customers of ours with dyshidrotic eczema (a rare form) that prefer our Organic Castile Goat Milk Soap. We encourage you to experiment with each type of goat milk soap to discover which one YOUR skin likes best.

Organic Castile Goat Milk Soap
"The Organic Castile olive oil soap is excellent! I have eczema & sensitive skin & my husband has just finished with radiation treatments & hormone treatments & his skin was getting really dry. This saved the day. The best yet out of all your soaps for dry skin. No more problems here with dry skin thanks to Goat Milk Stuff and your QUALITY SOAPS!!!! THANK YOU!" - Kelly M.

In addition to the Standard bars, each of our eczema-relieving goat milk soaps is available in Mega bars or Travel bars so you can test them on your skin. Check out our size comparison chart to see which size fits you best. We also have Eczema Bundles available with many of our recommended eczema items in one place.

How to Use Our Goat Milk Soap for Eczema Relief

We’ve learned a lot of good tips from the comments we’ve heard from our customers. If you're looking for relief from your eczema, we recommend these simple 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 our unscented Purity Goat Milk Soap exclusively for at least one week. You can use the bar soap in the shower or use some of our Purity Milk Bath for a soak in the tub.
  3. After one week, you may want to try using our Unscented Solid Lotion to see if it further improves your skin. You don't want to begin using the lotion and soap at the same time. For some people the lotion makes eczema symptoms better and for some, it doesn't.
  4. Start washing all of your laundry; clothes, sheets and towels in our Laundry Soap. Our Laundry Soap contains simple ingredients and no unnecessary chemicals. It completely rinses out of your clothes and doesn't leave anything behind to irritate your skin.
  5. Try our Unscented Shampoo Bar. The Unscented Shampoo Bar does not contain any chemicals and is full of beneficial ingredients for your skin and hair.
  6. Once you’ve tried Purity, experiment to see if one of our other goat milk soaps (Calendula, Organic Castile, Tea Tree, Charcoal) works any better. Try each one for at least 1 week so you can give it a fair test. There are smaller 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.

"This is my second time ordering the Shampoo Unscented Goat Milk Soap. I loved it so much I ordered again. I have Eczema so it’s perfect for that. I also use the Unscented Goat Milk Soap. Thank you for these great products!" - Shirley F.

How Often Should I Use Goat Milk Soap for Eczema Relief?

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.

Some people have found that once they get their eczema under control, they are able to switch to a goat milk soap made with essential oils. 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.

"I am in love with the Calendula soap. So soothing to my itchy skin. With eczema and allergies to most things put in soaps, this is a blessing. Leaves my skin smooth and calm!" - Sharon F.

Goat Milk Soap is 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. The proteins and fatty acids in goat milk provide a great moisture barrier that encourages deep hydration for your skin. Goat milk can have anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce irritation and redness common in eczema and other sensitive skin conditions.

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

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 be further irritating your skin and causing eczema flare-ups.

We also have a chemical-free Natural Deodorant that is a great solution for irritated armpits.

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 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 skin conditions, like eczema. 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.

Eczema Frequently Asked Questions

Is eczema fungal or bacterial?

Eczema is not caused by either a fungal or bacterial infection. Instead, it is a type of inflammatory skin condition often characterized by dry, irritated, and itchy skin.

The exact cause of eczema is not fully understood, but it is thought to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Eczema can also become infected by various viruses, bacteria, and fungi, at which point the individual's eczema can be fungal or bacterial.

Tip: Find out how Goat Milk Soap can help eczema not become infected in our blog post.

Is eczema caused by stress?

Stress can aggravate and worsen eczema symptoms, but it is not considered to be a direct cause of the condition.

Eczema is a chronic condition that is, as mentioned above, caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. These factors can include things like a person's skin barrier function, immune system, and exposure to irritants or allergens.

However, stress can cause the release of certain chemicals in the body that can worsen eczema symptoms.

What happens if eczema is left untreated?

Untreated eczema can lead to a number of complications. The most common complication is a skin infection.

Prolonged scratching and rubbing of the skin can cause breaks in the skin, which can make it easier for bacteria and viruses to enter the body and cause an infection. The infected area can become red, swollen, and painful and may become filled with pus.

Untreated eczema can also lead to thickened, discolored skin, known as lichenification, which can be difficult to treat. Long-term scratching and rubbing can also cause changes in the shape of the skin.

Other complications include decreased quality of life, sleep disturbance, emotional distress, and other emotional impacts such as anxiety and depression, social isolation, and impaired work productivity.

It is essential to treat eczema properly to prevent complications and manage symptoms. Combining self-care measures (like using Goat Milk Soap) and medication can help control eczema and prevent complications.
