Over the years goat milk production has increased significantly due to greater market demand. Goat milk tends to have a number of medicinal properties; it’s antimicrobial and aids in treating cardiovascular and gastrointestinal diseases, allergies, and even cancer.
Goat milk contains carbohydrates, lipids, minerals, protein, and vitamins. But the higher digestibility, shorter sizes of fat globules, and fewer allergic reactions (such as lactose sensitivity) are the most prominent health-promoting reasons for its undue fame. Let's find out what makes it the secret ingredient that our skin may need:
1. Gentle yet effective
Goat milk is known to soothe skin naturally because it has the same pH level as human skin. For this reason, it is a game-changer for people dealing with sensitivity such as eczema, keratosis pilaris, and psoriasis. You can trust goat milk not to exacerbate your skin condition because the human skin recognizes the goat milk as a familiar product to that of human milk and allows it to enter without creating an obstacle for the active compounds in goat's milk.
2. Major moisture
One specialty of goat milk is its lactic acid content that delivers gentle hydration and exfoliation simultaneously. This natural humectant increases the production of ceramides and retains moisture within the skin to deliver a bright, texture-free, and ultra-hydrated complexion. Best of all, it keeps the goody goods (moisture and lipids) inside your skin and the baddy bad-s (bacteria and allergens) out of the skin. Win-win, right?
3. A boost of essential fatty acids, probiotics, and vitamin A
Besides lactic acid, goat milk contains a few other excellent components that will make you want to make swap products almost immediately. It contains fatty acids that aid in repairing the skin barrier to contribute to softer skin and probiotics that encourage the growth of normal skin. Lastly, the mild content of vitamin A in goat's milk helps gently exfoliate the skin.
