Oatmeal Milk & Honey Exfoliating Soap
Oatmeal Milk & Honey Exfoliating Soap
Oatmeal, Milk & Honey is our bestselling goat milk soap! Mellow and smooth with a touch of sweetness and ground oatmeal as a gentle exfoliant
We’re second-generation soap-makers who take a lot of pride in what we do. Our signature goat milk soap is specially formulated to moisturize dry, sensitive skin.
They’re “superfatted” bars, which means the fat molecules in the goat milk are extra. Olive oil and goat milk, filled with vitamin A, lactic acid, and other nutrients, are at the very top of the ingredients list. Our soaps are made using the “cold process” method, which blends lye with non-GMO plant oils and goat milk without the addition of irritating surfactants, foaming agents, parabens, or artificial colors.
The Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Goat Milk Soap is pleasantly scented with notes of milk and oatmeal and just a touch of sweet honey. Ground oatmeal is added for gentle exfoliation. Once the bars are cut, they’re cured for four weeks and then aged to make them extra long-lasting.

Why is goat milk soap good for your skin?
For so many reasons! Three of the big ones are vitamin A, lactic acid, and moisture boosting fat molecules! Here's a video we did on why goat milk is exceptional skincare!
Will my goat milk soap melt?
Nope! Our bars are cold process soaps, which are made by adding lye to goat milk and botanical oils. You'd have melting issues with melt-and-pour soaps, but don't need to worry about it with cold process soaps.
How much goat milk is in your soaps?
A lot! We pride ourselves that goat milk is our second biggest ingredient! Our first ingredient is olive oil, which is costly, but SO good for your skin.
What is the shelf life of my goat milk soap?
Our goat milk soaps have no expiration, except the scent may fade over time. You can expect the scent to last for at least a year, even much longer. If you're planning on storing them for a while (they make wonderful sachets in drawers!), we suggest somewhere away from sunlight as direct sunlight can reduce the scent over a long period of time.
How long do your goat milk soaps last?
A long time! We age them extra long to make them last longer. At a minimum, cold process soaps need to be aged 4 weeks. Often, ours are aged as long as 8 weeks. This lets extra water weight evaporate off, making them harder, denser, and long-lasting. Exactly how long is difficult to answer, because it varies so much based on if you're showering with them or just using them as a facial or hand soap. To extend the life of your goat milk soap, be sure to keep it on a drying tray when not in use.
Our Oatmeal, Milk & Honey goat milk soap features the StoneBale™, a sculpture by Terrence Parker. It's built in a hay field near our home and reminds us of the hardworking, New England culture, as well as happy memories of Joel's late father, Tom, who used to joke with his grandchildren that the white-wrapped hay bales were giant marshmallows. Special thanks to Terrence for allowing us to feature his work.

Why is goat milk soap so good for dry skin?
The vitamin A in goat milk increases your skin cell turnover rate, reducing lines and wrinkles. It's one of many nutrients in goat milk!
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid occuring naturally in goat milk that exfoliates your skin cells without drying them out.
Moisture Boosting Fat Molecules
In addition to all the fats from the plant oils, goat milk adds extra moisturizing fats to the formula to make superfatted bars
