At Jangle Soapworks all of our soaps are homemade in small batches, using only the finest ingredients. Whenever possible organic, sustainable and natural ingredients are used. Each soap is hand cut and hand finished to provide the finest luxury and personable soap possible. Every soap starts with organic, farm raised (by us), raw goat milk. Our goat milk soaps include only hand milked, fresh, organic, raw goat milk--never powdered or canned. At Jangle Soapworks, fresh creamy goat milk from our own goats makes up 100% of the liquid used in our soaps. Many homecrafted soap lines often include one or two plain goat milk soaps. All of our soaps are made with goat milk. And although we do have plain, most are beautiful, colorful, whimsical and fun!
Then, whenever possible organic and sustainable oils are used along with natural colorants, essential oils and fragrance oils.
Why goat milk?
Many people are still washing their
skin with soap made with water. Switching to soap made with goat milk can truly
benefit your skin’s health. It is wonderful for people with dry or
sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is also perfect
for healthy skin that wants to stay that way. Unprocessed goat milk fresh from
the farm contains many benefits. We use only the fresh real deal. When I first started using goat milk soap, I quickly realized that I didn't need near the moisturizer that I previously had. We use a wood burning stove to heat our house in the winter. With our long Wisconsin winters, that dry heat can be tough on the skin. We used to go through bottles and bottles of moisturizing creams and lotions. Now, we hardly use any. That was quite a revelation to us. Then we heard of friends who were using our soaps to successfully treat their child's eczema. Goat milk soap quickly became our all-the-time daily soap! Here are just a few of the benefits of using soap made with goat milk. Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid
which is an exfoliant that helps remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This helps cleanse and soften the skin, while leaving new
cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. The
alpha-hydroxy acids are so effective because they break down the bonds that
hold the dead skin cells together. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin
conditions by removing irritation. Water-based soaps may use harsh chemical
acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results.
Vitamins. Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high
in Vitamin A and amino acids that nourish the skin, repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain
healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made
with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some
psoriasis relief. Goat milk is also rich in Vitamin D and choline, and contains vitamins C, E, K, niacin and folate.
Cream. Fat molecules are an important part of making good soap.
The cream that is present in goat milk helps boost the moisturizing quality of
goat milk soaps. Since many people suffer from dry skin, particularly in the
winter months, this is an important quality for soap. Goat milk soap will not
dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin
naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy.
Minerals. Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin. It is an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, riboflavin (b12), potassium, selenium, zinc and iron.
