I have a 3 yr-old and a 1 yr-old and they both have extra-sensitive skin. My wife and I have been using oatmeal lotions, lanolin, special soaps....but there is always a spot of eczema or a rash to be found.

I finally remembered hearing about how goat's milk has all these great properties or nutrients, or whatever and tried some goat milk soap. Wouldn't you know, it worked!! All their skin problems have healed. I've also been using it as a shave cream and noticed I don't get razor-burn like I used to.

The down-fall...it's a bit pricey compared to other soap, especially the mass-produced name brand soaps. I researched and found the cheapest bars for $5 (at about $0.83 per ounce, compared to $1.00 to $1.90 per ounce for a dozen other makers) .

Anyway, this stuff is great! If you have extra sensitive skin, or have kids who do, I strongly recommend it.

They have some without any fragrance, and about 20 with different scents. For the girls I ordered the fragrance-free (they call it "Purity") . For my wife and I, we got a couple each of some different smells to see what we like best. I've become partial to one with something called 'Sandalwood' in it.

Dave, do you mind my asking where you order it? I have terribly bad allergies and dry cracked skin (ecxema) in the winter, so that sounds like something well worth trying.
Jan, here's the website:

Tell her "Dave M. from Houston" sent you. ;)
The family is a really neat farm-family. I did ALOT of comparing the Goat's Milk Soap makers and their is the least expensive per ounce and amount of actual milk per bar. We've really enjoyed their soaps....and the many scents.

Goats milk soap also works great for Acne. It has great moisturizing and calming effect for the skin. Goat milk also contain tons of beneficial nutrients that can rejuvenate the skin. Goat milk soap greatly benefits our skin since it has the same pH level similar to that of our own skin. Goat milk is also gentle on skin for this reason. Another benefit that goat milk soap has is that it contains natural alpha hydroxy acid, which is a natural exfoliant element that removes dead skin cells from your skin. Hence, it indirectly is able to improve your acne condition.
Goat's milk also has high amounts of protein, fat, iron, vitamin C and vitamin D, vitamin B and Vitamin A. These beneficial nutrients will help replenish and pamper the skin gently. The vitamins it contains also means that goat milk has some anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce acne redness. Besides its gentle calming effect, goat's milk is also used widely to brighten skin's complexion.

I make a soap with green tea that works great for acne too i've never found a skin type that it doesnt work on. Goats milk isnt the only alternative for most people and usually it is a pricier not to mention non-vegan and alot of times non humane way of helping excema
