Why? Because goats milk is very good and never ba-ha-ha-ha-had. Goat's milk, the main ingredient in our Zum Bars, is naturally balanced for the skin, and naturally homogenized. (So in case you happen to have a pet goat, you could truly drink the milk straight from the teat. But that would make you creepy and it might freak out your goat.)
The truth is, goat's milk is probably the absolute best mix of "good for you" and "good for nature." Unlike commercial soap, goat's milk soap contains capric, caprylic and capronic acids, and the naturally occurring triglycerides. Otherwise known as good fats. These good fats in goat's milk result in a pH level so close to the pH level of your own skin, to keep your skin's oils in balance and won't dry it out.
Goat's milk has a pH level that's as near to skin as a pair of faux leather pants. A pH level that's well balanced for healthy human hair and skin, while commercial soap can dry out the skin to the point at which it feels taut and itchy. The oil glands are forced to counteract, overproducing oils in an attempt to rebalance the pH of the skin. The result can be oily skin, clogged pores, blackheads and yuck - pimples.
Goat's milk offers an alphabet soup of vitamins. With its restorative vitamins, minerals and proteins, goat's milk soap simply maintains the balance. And no worries for people who have allergies to usual dairy products or sensitive skin.
Another benefit to using Zum Bar Goat's Milk Soap is the presence of naturally-occurring glycerin. Since we use a cold-processed method, we do not add extra heat which maintains the integrity of the goat's milk, food grade olive, coconut, palm and castor oils and pure essential oils. In the process of saponification, reactions between all of these ingredients produce the soap and a natural byproduct that your skin will love, glycerin. Many big soap companies remove the glycerin and sell it for extra profit, but not us! It's called glycerin, not glycerout. Glycerin is a natural at keeping skin balanced and a humectant, which help to pull impurities from your skin's pores and leave it loving you.
Three letters: W-O-W. This could be more than you ever wanted to know about goat's milk, but we think the point is worth milking.
