I know how many people out there enjoy the gift of handmade soap…but have you ever tried handmade goat milk soap? It’s a real treat for dry, itchy or sensitive skin due to its makeup.
Goat’s milk has lots of nourishing ingredients including Vitamin A, lactic acid, triglycerides and alpha-hydroxy acids, all of which promote exfoliation, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties.
If you are or know someone with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or just have dry skin in general (in the wintertime, this can be very common – I notice this too with my own skin!) this is a great handmade product to share with them. Another benefit is the fact that the Ph balance is similar to ours which means your skin’s natural balance will be preserved.
Just like the popular glycerin and cocoa butter bases, you can also find a pourable goat’s milk base if you like the thought of making your own bars. But when you are searching for a gift and want to save time, look no further!
First off is this four-pack oatmeal and honey set by the Soap Haven – it’s unscented so if you’re not too into fragrances this would be your best bet. Each 3.5 oz bar is made from the best ingredients and free of any artificial junk. It’s good for all ages and can do wonders for tired, itchy skin. Oatmeal in general is great for soothing itchy skin.
For an invigorating home spa experience, look no further than this lavender soap bar set by Southern Naturals. Each 4 oz bar contains the purest ingredients including coconut and olive oil.
Lavender is a highly popular scent for handmade gift soaps due to its relaxing properties which is why it’s a home run with users!
For the fragrance buff, this sampler set above makes the perfect gift! The company that makes it, Horse O’Peace Ranch, stands by all their products and the ingredients are all natural; one point is that no water is added thus creating a rich lathering experience.
As a special note, the above soaps are small in size (they are labeled as “vanity” and each one is a petite 2.25″ by 1″ in 1 oz weight. A super thoughtful gift idea for the handmade soap aficionado.
This line above, you can choose between a single bar or pack of three, it comes in several different scent combos – oatmeal and honey, vanilla (pictured above) citrus and lavender mint. Each square block is made using the cold process method which produces glycerin, a natural humectant for keeping skin moisturized.
This brand above is highly popular and lots of people rave about it. The scent is nice and subtle without being fake or overpowering. This company also makes some other different fragrances in the citrus family, like orange and grapefruit (my favorite – I LOVE citrusey things!) so be sure to check around.
Hope you enjoyed this little handmade goat milk soap bar lineup? Time to treat your skin right or give the best spa experience to someone you care about. As you can see not only are the base ingredients excellent for you but there is a range of nice scents to choose from too!
