Create skin-loving decadent goat milk soap using farm-fresh goats milk!
Goat milk soap is decadent, with a lotion-like lather! It is one of my favorite types of soap to make. Milk contains natural sugar, which can boost lather and create a super-sudsy bar of soap.
This natural sugar can also cause your soap to discolor and heat-up, causing all sorts of issues. I’ll show you how to dodge these issues and create a soap that is light and creamy in color.
Avoid over-heating and soap volcanoes with the knowledge in this course.

Why goat milk soap?
Goat milk soap is decadent and creamy, with a lotion-like lather.
Goat milk contains vitamins and minerals, which can be beneficial to the skin, and provides soothing relief to those with sensitive skin or eczema.
Goat milk contains sugar in the form of lactose which provides a wonderfully rich lather.
For those who sell their homemade soap at craft shows or in online shops, goat milk soap is a fan favorite. Adding goat milk soap to your product line could boost your sales, especially if you have a goat dairy farm and are looking for ways to use the excess goat milk.
