Our ingredients:


Goat milk ~
contains naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acids, proteins, minerals and high levels of Vitamins A, C, B1, B12, and E which help slow the effects of aging. Zinc contained in Goat’s Milk helps reconstruct collagen, encouraging moisture retention and elasticity. Goat’s Milk also helps the skin maintain a healthy pH level ~ all the things you can pay more for in a high-end cleanser made in a laboratory, but made by goats instead.

Water ~ filtered by Reverse Osmosis

Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) ~ we use food-grade sodium hydroxide.  Not that you want to eat lye, but some pre-packaged foods actually contain it!  This is what turns the oils into soap.

Cocoa Butter ~  Cocoa butter is a natural antioxidant that clears and smoothes the skin. It is frequently used for treating dry skin and stretch marks. Cocoa butter is a natural source of vitamin E as well as a benificial treatment for chapped hands, feet, lips, pregnant skin and other skin irritations.

Coconut Oil ~ Coconut oil, like lard, also makes a hard, long-lasting bar of soap.  It adds a fluffy lather, does not clog pores, and is prized for its skin-nourishing qualities.

Castor Oil ~ Castor oil creates a great lather as well as attracting moisture to your skin. 

Grape Seed Oil ~ 
Grapeseed oil has a fine texture, is easily absorbed by the skin, and has great emollient properties, making it an ideal skincare and cosmetic ingredient.  It has mildly astringent qualities which help to tighten and tone the skin, which makes it useful for acne and other skin complaints. Grape seed contains proanthocyanidins, which are considered to be very potent antioxidants, helpful for diminishing the sun's damaging effects and lessening free-radical damage and also is helpful in wound healing. It is rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid quite important for the skin and the cell membranes.Grapeseed oil is purported to have regenerative and restructuring virtues and has great skin moisturizing properties.
Grapeseed oil contains the following fatty acids: palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, alpha linolenic, icosanoic, icosenoic and docosanoic. (Soaper's Choice)

Lard ~ Lard makes a hard, long-lasting, white bar of soap.  Lard has gone out of favor among home soap makers because it requires an enormous amount of stirring.  Palm oil provides the same characteristics in soap with a lot less labor.  I suppose we're gluttons for punishment though, because we still want to use lard.  I frequently hear from people who tell me they've tried lots of other soaps, but like ours the best.  When comparing ingredients, the common difference I see is that we use lard. 

Shea Butter ~ Dermatologists everywhere are starting to recommend this product to their patients, and many cosmetic companies in France and the USA are putting shea butter in their products.  Shea butter has a vast number of proven healing properties stemming from its physical makeup of vitamin E, vitamin A and cinnamic acid to name a few. Shea butters ingredients increase the healing of wounds and improve scars. It is commonly used in the treatment of eczema, rashes, burns, and severely dry skin. Shea butter leaves skin smooth, supple and soft. It is rapidly becoming the #1 moisturizing agent used today.
