Benefits of goat’s milk acknowledged by beauty industry
Skin care products with goat’s milk are making their way in to mainstream America through lotions, cleansers and moisturizers for the face and body.

Goat’s milk products are not too alkaline or acidic in composition, which makes the goat milk ingredient an ideal for element in dry skin formulas. Goat’s milk contains natural Lactic Acid, which also contributes to a stabilized, gentle pH level.

Historically, goat’s milk products have targeted psoriasis and eczema patients due to the painful dry skin conditions that are associated with these conditions.

Luxury brands see the potential

Kate Sommerville combines goat’s milk in two of their products for sensitive skin. Kate’s goat’s milk products are combined with coconut and sweet almond in an effort soothe and hydrate the skin.

According to Yana Grammer, Marketing and Product Development Consultant to the Beauty Industry, “Goat Milk has been used for centuries for its beautifying and anti-aging properties. It’s refreshing to see modern brands now incorporating ancient beauty secrets into their products. Many brands are launching goat milk derived skincare formulas that offer consumers countless anti-aging and skin softening benefits.”

Natural brands know the success of goat’s milk

Canus, in Quebec, markets a variety of goat’s milk products globally. The company began as a family owned business, making bars of soap with goat’s milk. Canus now owns over eighty different cosmetic products that contain a base of goat’s milk along with infusions of olive oil, orchid, and marigold.

According to Zum Bar, makers of natural goat’s milk soap, the naturally occurring capric, caprylic and capronic acids and triglycerides or good fats are beneficial to the hair and skin due to the pH balance of goat’s milk.

Chivas, goat milk skin care, uses the ingredient because the milk has a short-strand protein structure allowing it to be easily absorbed into the skin.

Additionally, goat’s milk may be used in hair formulations since the pH level may promote healthy hair by enabling the composition of proteins that penetrates the scalp and soothes the follicle. Long-term application may significantly improve hair softness and moisture.

Goat’s milk is useful in formulations as goat milk’s protein and fatty acid composition is distinct from traditional natural ingredients and is not easily replicated which offers vast potential for market innovation using goat’s milk.
