Unlike cows' or sheeps' milk, goats' milk contains capric(1) and caprylic(2) acids, as well as naturally occurring triglycerides. When used in soap, this results in a lower pH level that of most commercially prepared soaps, and is much closer to the normal pH level of healthy human hair and skin.
Goats' milk soap helps maintain correct skin pH, is a rich, natural moisturizer, bringing with it restorative vitamins, minerals and proteins, and is gentle on even very sensitive skin.The milk Crowley Manor uses comes directly from our own dairy goat herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats, renowned for the highest butterfat content available in dairy goat breeds. Our herd feeds freely on native brome and orchard grasses and protein rich alfalfa, supplemented with grain, which provides the animals with a high-quality varied diet, and contributes to the richness of their milk. And our mountain well water, also rich in minerals. We filter and use only the freshest of this milk in our soap products.
We pride ourselves in making a product that is as close to nature as possible, using only organic base oils of extra virgin olive oil, rice bran oil, palm oil and coconut oil with our own proprietary calibration to ensure a long lasting, moisturizing and very rich in lather bar of soap.
Our essential oil soap line is enhanced with swirls of natural iron oxides, Rhassoul and Illite clays, sea mud, or botanicals of our choosing for additional skin benefit, with the incorporation of goat milk in some instances.
The fragrance line only uses top shelf fragrances, free of phthalates* and again is enhanced with sea mud, clays and/or botanicals and iron oxides.
1 Capric Acid: Fatty acid found in Cows and goats milk, and coconut
2 Caprylic Acid: Fatty acid works as an antiviral, antifungal, boosts energy, effective against e coli and salmonella, Because of its unique chemical structure caprylic acid is able to seep through the outside shell of the mitochondria where it can then be broken down to release energy. In this way your overall energy levels are increased, which helps aid recovery. The mitochondria are small organs within your cells that are responsible for producing all the energy needed by your tissues. (Health Sciences Institute).
