When I receive questions that I think others will benefit from I like to post them here.
These are some recently asked questions:
Is your goat milk soap considered a body or facial soap?
- Both. When I create a soap I keep skin types in mind. Some of the soaps are good for oily or combination skin (such as lemongrass, cedarwood). Some are a good match-up for skin blemishes (such as lemongrass, patchouli, or tea tree). Some of the soaps are less drying, great for mature or dry skin (examples are: unscented or honey oatmeal soaps, lavender, and orange mint).
Can your soaps be used as a shaving cream replacement?
- Yes, I consider the lather from my soaps to have a thick luxurious feel. This enables a smooth shave with less skin irritation, resulting in less nicks and chafing. Honey oatmeal, for example, provides a wonderful rich lather that leaves the skin less irritated (as compared to shaving cream).
Do any of your soaps contain an exfoliant to assist with dead skin removal while cleansing?
- Yes, the honey oatmeal is very mildy exfoliating. The lemongrass poppyseed contains a natural exfoliant, poppyseeds. ,
Are any of your soaps or lotions helpful to those with”special or sensitive” skin conditions?
- When using a new product I advise the client to 1) begin using the product in a small test area, 2) use the product sparingly, 3) overall body use must begin gradually.
- I suggest, when a person has tried many products that have failed, to give your skin a rest. Try one product at a time. There is something to be said about goat milk soaps and lotions, with their lack of detergents and chemicals, but I cannot say they cure, heal or treat any certain condition. Results (if any) depend upon your personal skin type. Always consult with your physician!
