Living with eczema can be an emotionally daunting experience! I know how that feels, I have mild eczema, so as my little 5 years old. Our skin basically lacks Filaggrin, a protein that helps our bodies maintain a healthy and strong skin protective barrier on the very top layer of the skin. Moisture can escape and bacteria, viruses and more can enter our skin easily. We both have very dry and infection-prone skin. Our skin can get more irritated by heat, cold, humidity or wind. The symptoms can worsen when the weather gets too hot or too cold!
During the winter months, humidity that provides moisture in the air decreases. The dry air often results in dry skin, which can worsen eczema. Hot temperatures can also aggravate eczema. The heat can stimulate that itchy, prickly feeling.
What I learnt over many years living with eczema (and after much research), keeping my skin well moisturised is key to reducing symptoms and discomfort. The two key products that can influence that is the soap we use in the shower and the moisturiser we use afterwards to keep our skin hydrated.
Goat milk soap is a gentle soap with many benefits. Goat milk’s saturated fats creates lather in soap, and unsaturated fats provides moisturising and nourishing properties. Its creaminess relieves conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin, as it keeps skin nourished and hydrated and helps keep the skin’s natural oil intact.
Our goats milk soaps also contain plant-based oils like olive oil, coconut oil and rice bran oil to further increase the content of healthy nourishing fats for extra care of your skin.
Our newest launch Goats Milk Soap Trio box contains special ingredients such as Hemp Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil and Honey added to our goats’ milk that further enhance its benefits.
Goats Milk and hemp oil: the hemp oil helps moderate oil production in your skin, so it is not too dry or too oily. Hemp seed oil is also very soothing on the skin and will help with redness and inflammation.
Goats Milk and Apricot Kernel Oil: Apricot kernel oil packed with Vitamin K, C and E helps to improve skin tone, maintain softness and radiance of the skin. We added Almond flakes that are rich in fatty acids, and vitamin E to provide good exfoliation and moisturising effect.
Goats Milk & Honey: Honey contains its antioxidant and humectant properties, when added in soap is great for dry or damaged skin. It is extremely moisturising and hydrates very dry skin.
We hope this Trio box helps people with Eczema and those with very dry skin.
For those that are lucky enough for not having any skin conditions, these are very nourishing soaps to use.
